nice
It is a small school and most of the students come from China. They hire good teachers, but there is no campus, and all classrooms are busy and crowded.

Suitable for experienced teachers
This is a great place to work if you are an experienced teacher who has a lot of materials. I see the other reviewers have commented on prep time, so if you are a new teacher, be prepared to build your own resources, which will in the end be beneficial. Teenagers are very respectful, hardworking and focussed all the way. I have been here 11 years and was one of the first teachers hired. It has been the best teaching experience I have had! It is a family firm.
Pros
Great management! Dr. Lu is around but does not micromanage.
Cons
Very busy!

Not the best at making the whole work environment happy
Teachers are mistreated, students often don't show up meaning you don't get full salary, office gives little help or support. More concerned about keeping students and parents happy. Kids still speak Chinese in class and around office, almost no English. Secretaries are totally incompetent. Kids spend more time compiling about homework than doing it
Pros
Free photocopying and bottled water. whoopee!

Small, low-paying private school
Your average small private school, offering only private contractor positions for average (=low) hourly wages, never salaried positions, and requiring lesson planning and other prep but refusing to pay you for your time spent doing that. They have plenty of after-school tutoring jobs if you need more hours, but these are sometimes unreliable (students don't show) and you end up getting home pretty late. Nice people, pleasant atmosphere. Very small = intimate, decent community, but few resources. Students are overworked with very long days. Well-meaning but often disorganized management. An okay place for a job straight out of teacher's college. But not a real job.
