Who we are

Dragon Teachers was started in 2017, after founder Leigh Kemp completed his sixth year teaching in China. It all started for him in 2011 when he decided to up-sticks and take a chance working in China. Since then, he’s held several senior positions and is now responsible for a larger team of international teachers at one of China’s most prestigious school.

With his experience, we now make moving to and working in China an easy, and exciting opportunity for you.

Ok, but you've got some questions right?

Well we hope you do! Moving to China is a big step for anyone, but damn is it rewarding! You’ll be surrounded by other teachers and like-minded people, whilst doing a job that is equally as rewarding as your down-time.

Before we even start the process, we’ll answer any questions you have, and give you a taste of what you can expect. It’s also worth taking a read of our How it Works section.

Why Dragon Teachers

We make it simple

We'll find your perfect job for you, run you through the process of moving to China (including your Visa) and help you with all the finer details such as accommodation and making your China your home.

We don't charge

We thought it best to mention this at this point! We don't charge you anything for our service (we're paid by the schools we work with). You'll only need to pay for your flights and a police check if you need one.

Decent dollar!

There's no point you moving to China and having to scrape by. We'll work  to get you the best possible salary, and advise you of the sort of costs you may expect when it comes to living abroad.

Getting social

Worried about making friends? Don't! We'll put you in touch with other like-minded teachers who have already been in China a while, as well as new teachers starting at the same time as you.

Nothing found.

Get the ball rolling and begin your move to China today!
