Read this before you make your decision. China is teeming with dodgy schools and I would be highly sceptical of posts on this or other forums along the lines of 'we used to be bad but we have changed' etc etc. Hope this helps, and good luck with your decision!

Yes, nice view buddy, spoken by an outsider, using conjecture. Gripping stuff.

Repeating the link I posted above, as a guest (I'm the editor & developer of the site, so I know the entire operation well): http:www.amesoninstitute.org

Below is a quoted post from Thomas, my co-worker who teaches English Lit. here at our Nanjing HQ.

GUEST99178 Can we get an update on Ameson and what they offer exactly? I had a phone interview with them this week and they offered me a job teaching AP Lang and Lit sight unseen...are they for real?

GUEST12217 I've taught in Shenyang (3 years) which is not a great place to be in winter. However, there are schools in China that will hire-sight unseen because it makes the school look good if an American (foreigner) is teaching there. It can be a marketing tool for the school.

GUEST23134 Hi,
My name is Laura, I'm Canadian, and I'm the Chief Recruitment Officer at Ameson, living and working in Nanjing.
For details about our organization, please feel free to visit our website at www.ameson.org.
To give you a basic idea about Ameson, we operate an American curriculum AP level high school program embedded into Chinese public high schools across the country. We hire teachers who can specialize in specific subjects, such as Physics, Biology, Math, Chemistry, English Lit., etc.

We welcome all inquiries, so please feel free to contact me directly if you'd like more information, or if you have specific questions or concerns. My email is ameson.org|laura.

GUEST17118 Laura (the woman above) has quit. Ameson is a scam that does nothing but ruin kids lives. It offers AP programs and has worthless administrators like Tommy Zhong that do absolutely nothing and don't support teachers. They have been sued by many ex-teachers for things such as breach of contract. They are notorious for sending teachers throughout different parts of China without notice or empathy of their situations. If you don't know what Ameson is I can tell you. They are not a school directly but go to host schools and provide teachers. Many times the schools are full of students that couldn't do well on the high school examination and are in the program because the parents are desperate to get them into a college. They think western colleges are easier than eastern colleges. As a teacher your scores at the end of the year do not matter and the kids don't really care. What matters is that the kids like you personally and Ameson keeps making money. (They are for profit they are lying) Ameson is a dictatorship by a complete moron (his name is Sean) and no one really does their job. Don't leave America for them. Get a job at an international school. At least international schools have curriculums and are certified. Something Ameson is not.
