About the position

We are looking for a Mandarin tutor to develop and implement our Junior School Co-Curricular Mandarin Language Program.

The lessons will focus on the key skills of listening, reading, speaking and writing. Through immersion in activities such as songs, stories, role plays and culture-related tasks, they will come to understand the basics of the language that will inspire a love of learning Chinese.

  •  Proven experience in teaching Mandarin to children from Pre-K to Year 6
  •  Ability to plan, implement and evaluate educational programs that foster the social, emotional, cognitive and physical growth of students, confirming that the programs cater for the learning needs and wellbeing of all students

  •  State of the art facilities and collegiate environment
  •  Employee Assistance Program available to you and your immediate family
