Be more than a teacher. Be an inspiration!
Imagine life filled with fireworks, kung fu, red lanterns, karaoke, hot springs, pushcart vendors, tai chi, fried rice, cute kids, and students who want to learn. Now imagine enough income to take it all in! You can sample all this and more and still save money when you are teaching English in Taiwan.

We employ more than 600 native English-speaking teachers and have more than 30 years of experience working with people just like you. In addition to our competitive salary, we guarantee your teaching hours and offer regular raises and bonuses. You don't need a TEFL certificate—in fact, after successfully completing our free TEFL Certification Program in your first year, you will earn one while getting paid for your practicum teaching.

Successful teachers can choose to renew their yearly contracts or explore the opportunities for advancement (curriculum writing, management, training, marketing, and more!).
Knowing how to speak Mandarin Chinese is not a necessity for Taiwan; you can get by with English and a little creativity. But if you wish, you can also study Mandarin while you work. There are many resources for studying Chinese, from formal university classes to casual coffee-shop language exchange.
Teaching overseas is an enriching experience that will make you stronger, wiser, and more diverse as a person and as a professional. At the end of the day, job satisfaction comes from being good at what you do; HESS provides the best training, environment, and materials, empowering you to excel at teaching.
