Is this review useful?
Have you taught or lived abroad before?:
Yes.
How supportive was your employer?:
I was given some books and told I'd be charged if I mislaid them. Same for the laptop.
How did your employer manage the administration side?:
Passably. Online registration.
How well did your employer communicate?:
Not well. I was called into a meeting to discuss grading student work during which James Wu ordered me to resign (and pay an illegal 30,000 ntd fine) several times, stating there'd be 'problems' and 'trouble' if I didn't. When this failed, he hired two men to try and physically intimidate me into signing a resignation. Feel free to request the CCTV.
How were day to day lessons and your students?:
Bedlam. Pupils arrived whenever they felt like it, loudly and rudely interrupted classes and did so secure in the knowledge that the principal, Mr. James Wu, could not care less. A brief visit to the school's Secondary Program revealed pupils playing games on their ipads in full view of teachers. Students knew that they'd get grades of 80% or above just got turning up because Kang Chiao fakes its grades. I feel genuinely sorry for those students who did work hard and made effort, as their rights and needs were trampled upon by a corrupt and immature school administration.
Would you recommend this employer to someone else?:
Nope. Their reasons for my dismissal range from 'your students got less than 80%' to 'you don't have the passion go teach' to 'you've been looking at porn during school hours'. I'm waiting for a charge of witchcraft to surface. Avoid the school lunches as well. They've been implicated in the tainted oil products scandal.

Good reviews are really useful and we take them seriously. We ask a lot of questions to make sure, that they provide a well-rounded picture. You can post a review anonymously but we do ask for emails (won't be shown), in case we need to get in touch to clear up spelling, unclear answers etc.

Most importantly, thanks for writing one! A well written review is often the best advice another teacher can have.
