People make all the difference. And at EduGrove, we make a point of only choosing the best.
Our selection process is rigorous. EduGrove teachers are all talented individuals from top universities, many with master’s degrees. They are skilled Standard Mandarin speakers and Chinese writers and able to converse fluently in English. Following selection, every teacher undergoes a 6-month in-house training period introducing them to ‘the EduGrove way’!
We look for unique individuals, people with that little extra quirk; people who are creative, imaginative and deeply passionate about children, education and language. And of course, they must have bags of energy!
We believe that all our teachers are special – and we think you will too!
