About the Position:

Grace International Language Institute is a China based educational institute that trains students in the linguistic, cultural, and social skills they need in order to succeed in western education systems.

GRACE first opened in response to the alarming suicide rates among Chinese teenagers caused by the intense pressure put on them by both the education system and their families to perform well. GRACE’s vision is to remove schoolchildren from the traditional Chinese education system and help them transition into Canadian high school and university. It is GRACE’s desire to provide our students with a loving environment in which to learn, explore and grow as healthy individuals.

GRACE currently operates out of a local municipality in China’s Shaanxi province. It is our desire to open a second branch in the province’s capitol of Xi’an. We are currently looking for two homeroom teachers to join our team of educators as we undertake this task of establishing a school in which we can prepare students for school in Canada, but also sow seeds that will prepare them to encounter Christ when they arrive.

Homeroom teachers are the primary instructors for the class they are assigned. They are the first people that students engage when they begin their day, and often the last ones they work with before they leave. Our homeroom teachers have a unique opportunity to both teach and mentor Chinese young people, modelling Christ-like behavior and training them to be young people of character.



GRACE will provide teachers with:

  • Competitive salary
  • Housing
  • Assistance with visa paperwork and travel documents
  • International travel reimbursement upon completion of contract
  • Yearly bonus
