Typical Work Day for Education Consultant

1. LANGUAGE CENTER

IF YOU ARE TEACHING 3-12 YEAR OLD CHILDREN:

Your schedule will be morning (start around 830-930am) until evening (end around 6-7pm), Monday to Friday. You will have at least 1-hr off for lunch. You may even have a longer gap after lunch, as the kids are napping. This break can be used for you to nap or to do prep work. You will teach kindergarten kids (3 to 6 yr-olds) morning to early afternoon, and then switch to teach some cram classes (6 to 13 yr-olds) afterwards.

IF YOU ARE TEACHING 6-18 YEAR OLD STUDENTS:

Your schedule will typically mean working from after lunch (start around 1-2pm) to night (end around 8-9pm). As your students are a bit older, though, Saturday is often a work day as well, because that is the only day they can come to learn English.

A couple of times every semester, there may be an event on Saturday. The two big ones per year are usually a Christmas Show and a Graduation Play. Other possibilities are things like PTA, Talent Show, Speech Competition, plus more. Full-time staff is usually required to participate heavily in the events.

* For China, customarily, you will work 5 days per week, with two days off. However, expect the weekends to be your heavy workload days, while getting two other days during the week off. Time table can vary significantly depending on your employer's needs.

2. SCHOOL (K-12)

Working at a public or private school (elementary, junior or senior high school) means that your schedule will typically start around 8am and finish around 5pm, working Monday to Friday. Lunch is usually 1-hr long. Some times you will have special events such as PTA, competitions, or sporting events, that may fall on a Saturday. Expect to help out with special events.

Typically, full-time positions will allot for 18-25 teaching hours, with additional contact hours likely.
