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 across Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen, 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 are currently looking for an English Instructor to join our Hong Kong / Beijing / Shanghai / Shenzhen office due to rapid expansion.
Leadership & Ownership:
At Capstone, we provide the teachers a sense of leadership and ownership. Instructors can develop their own curricula for student groups between the range from Grade 3 to Grade 12, bringing your particular background and skills to the challenge. Also, you can focus on a broader consulting role, providing advice and helping students chart their future paths.
