Extra off school study has always been expected for students in Asian countries. Typical families in China are willing to spend huge percentage of their income on children's education from their very early years as a supplement to school education. Thousands of training centers providing extra curricula sprout up every single city of China. Teaching in Chengdu is good.
Quality of teaching, management, and salary vary among different training centers. Yet almost all training centers follow a strict “pay for performance” plan. Teachers who perform well command high wages per hour, whereas less effective teachers are often asked to find other employment. Based on 'Chengdu City & Salary 2020 Research Report', training centers in Chengdu mostly recruit ESL teachers, who can make around ¥16,813 ($2,418) per month.
