Get A Job Teaching English In A Kindergarten Anywhere


To get a job in a kindergarten or school you first have to do a demo class.
     Teaching Kids whether kindergarten or primary school anywhere in the world is the way to start your new career in teaching and you will see how easy it is.
        Check out this book about getting a teaching job in China
     It is a wonderful and rewarding experience. So start your working life after you leave university by going to see the world and teach kids. Or for that matter you can go at any age or anytime you need a change. Getting a job overseas is really no problem, whether you get one before you leave your home country or after you arrive.
    Now when you go for a job the first thing you have to do is a free demo class. You are put in front of a class and you teach it with a few teachers and administrators watching. So be prepared. If your demo class is good they expect all your classes to be similar.

  Some demo classes are daunting. I don't know if that is deliberate, or the school just wants to see what you can do. In some cases you are doing a demo in front of nearly the whole school. In some out of the way places that will happen, especially if you are volunteering and end up in a village. You could end up doing a demo in the village square, with the whole village watching.
     I've had to do demo classes in a park with whoever wants to watch, watching. Quite embarrassing to say the least, but you have to soldier on.

     It might be an idea to upgrade your public speaking skills. As I have had to do demo classes in lecture halls in front of around 1000 parents, teachers and whoever just dropped in. In one primary school they put me in the multimedia classroom and gave me a microphone. All I had was an overhead projector and a whiteboard. In front of me there were all the students from grade one, about 500 of them, sitting in their class groups. So expect the unexpected. For this class I used flashcards. The whiteboard was no good, because the pens where not dark enough, and the kids were too young to read. I used class groupings and the class turned out excellent. The students loved me, and that is what you want.

     To find out how other teachers teach search 'teach kindergarten and primary school' in youtube and see what pops up. Watch some videos and get some ideas and start practicing. Master what you like so you can reproduce it in a class. Just remember it doesn't have to be perfect, it should keep the kids happy and then your administrators are happy. I would spend a lot of time on youtube, Dave's ESL cafe, echinacities and other ESL sites until you have a portfolio of material you can regurgitate in any class. Then over time you will perfect your style.

     To practice your demo class stand in front of a full length mirror, so you can see what you look like, and teach to the mirror. If you do not have a mirror, turn your video cam on you and record your demo class, then watch what you look like. This way you can see what your students see and improve on it. Anyway it is a good idea to record you, so you can put your best video up on youtube or your favorite video site.

    Youtube is blocked in China so use another video site. Also gmail and possibly google are blocked too now, so use another email site or take an unblocker with you, like ultrasurf. In China you can use youku and tudou, these are China youtube.

     I put my video CV up on my site.  Watch a few of the other videos on youtube to see how other teachers do their video CVs. When you have got it all together, put a video CV up so you can show the world and prospective employers your teaching style.

     Your craft is teaching so perfect it. It makes life easier if you know what you are doing. And youtube can give you the ideas, you just have to practice them.
