Teaching English in Taiwan

  2. 2. Introduction • Finance and accounting professional Sue Ann Ma received her MBA from Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas. From there, she went on to several positions at companies including Chase Bank, where she won the Circle of Excellence award in 1995. Sue Ann Ma hopes to travel to China and Taiwan and provide voluntary services as an English teacher. Many students in Taiwan need English teachers to help them learn the language of business and improve their chances at getting into a good university. There are English schools all over the area called “cram” schools, or buxibans, that range in size and can teach varying levels of education.
  3. 3. Teaching English • Many native English speakers from other countries that want to travel to Taiwan end up working in one of these buxibans, but could also be hired privately for specific needs. Buxibans are businesses that operate after regular school hours, and some of them provide childcare-like services to very young students. Some people believe these schools have the nickname “cram school” because they cram in a huge number of students to maximize their profits. Teachers in buxibans are usually paid reasonably well, and the market to get a job in these schools is competitive. Volunteer English teachers may have an even easier time finding a place to provide their services at schools or in community service.
