Hi all! I’m considering a high school teaching position at an international school in Taichung. I’d like some advice regarding an average/fair salary scale in Taiwan for similar positions, as I’m not familiar at all with teaching pay scales here. Doing my research online, I’ve found a mix of results, mainly due to the many different types of teachers in Taiwan (cram school, public school, private tutoring, English teacher, etc.).
Background: I have 5 years of teaching experience in USA (licensed w/ master’s degree), and I’d be teaching HS social studies.
They’re offering me NTD 90k a month (and a 10K housing allowance). Is this on average with what I would expect for my experience? I want to be able to negotiate, though I have no idea what others with similar experience might be making.
Appreciate any and all help!!
