A friend of mine, who just got back to Taiwan, started teaching in her home city of Ping tung. She is working for an American and his Taiwanese wife in a small buxiban. It sounds like there is only one other teacher, who happens to be Canadian. The pay hasn’t been disclosed yet but my friend says its pretty standard.
I asked for the owner to contact me, I need to ask questions. They are opening another location in a nearby city and may want me to teach there as well if I was hired. What kind of questions do you think I should ask? Pay, location, what will they pay for (transportation,) how big are the classes, how many hours are there, are there benefits, what style teaching do they use, will they make me work during the ARC wait period?
And I guess I also would need to figure out which Visa to come on and what kind of housing the have available. I heard that they have some pretty decent apartments close by for only like $250 a month.
Anyways - any suggestions or warnings are welcome, thanks!
