About Capstone Educational Group:
Founded in 2003, Capstone is one of Asia’s leading private educational institutions, focused on high-achieving students in the region. We were founded on the belief that when educators are passionate and are given the best resources, they can launch students into great professional and personal orbits.
With offices in Hong Kong and Beijing, Capstone is at the heart of the education industry in Asia. Our thirteen years of experience combined with our unwavering commitment to our students have given us the expertise and resources to consistently produce students who possess both academic achievement and leadership potential.
Capstone Educational Group’s mission is simple: to create tomorrow’s leaders. Our company believes in instilling critical thinking, intellectual vitality, and a lifelong love of learning in our students. Capstone prepares students to succeed as global citizens.
Capstone takes pedagogy seriously, always putting students first. We believe that giving instructors the freedom and responsibility to innovate drives student success. Critical thinking lies at the heart of our approach to every Capstone course. By integrating deep analysis into all our courses and setting high expectations, we challenge students to push past their comfort zones and achieve at the highest levels.
We offer a professional, collegiate environment that does ESL - and more - the right way. We’re looking for top talent to spark student passion about thinking deeply. We’re looking for instructors who thrive on going above and beyond for their students. We’re looking for leaders who take pride and ownership in their work as we expand to two new cities in mainland China this summer
Leadership & Ownership:
Here at Capstone, we provide the teachers with a sense of leadership and ownership. You can develop your own curricula for student groups between the range from Grade 3 to Grade 12, bringing your particular background and skills to the challenge. You could also focus on a broader consulting role, providing advice and helping students chart their future paths. If your passion is teaching, you can deliver thoughtful, impactful lessons to highly motivated and curious students.
Working at Capstone Educational Group:
We offer the opportunity for our teachers for mini-rotations between offices during their work period. We work with students studying under a variety of different educational systems, from the American K-12 system to the British GCE ‘O’ and ‘A’ Levels, to the International Baccalaureate, to the local Hong Kong Diploma in Secondary Education. This exposure to a range of curricula provides valuable insights into how education in Asia mirrors or differs from our instructors’ own experiences.
We are looking for intelligent and driven instructors who are committed to student development. While all of our instructors have impressive backgrounds, they also possess enthusiasm and a diverse range of life experiences that engage and grow our students. Beyond this charisma and intelligence, we look for a moral aptitude and personal character that allows these instructors to be appropriate role models for developing youth. Based on your own unique skills, we will advise you on which position we believe you will be most suited to and we offer a job rotation scheme where you can gain more experience in different teaching environments.

ESL Instructor - Teach in our International English Standard (IES) program for ESL, targeted at intelligent students attending international schools and top local schools.
