Do not take any offers from a company called Culture Gateway (http://china.culturegateway.com/teach)in Beijing.
I was contacted through an aquaintance and connected with a Canadian named Shawn Tryon, who engineered a fraudulant scheme to recruit teachers for a training program under Beijing Normal University. Tryon and his "associates" keep at least 30% of the hourly pay from the school (nearly 100rmb per hour). After the job finished, he withheld all promised pay, tried to implement arbitrary "fines and penalties", and finally told me he would no longer answer my emails if I didn't do as I was told.
The school, located at the former Furen University in the hutong area near Hohai, told me it "wasn't their problem", and I was forced to contact the dean at the university to force them to acknowledge that I had ever worked there. The whole ordeal of trying to get paid expostfacto lasted for over 2 months, recked my relationship and almost caused my eviction. SHAWN TRYON is the sleaziest most dishonest, evil person I have met in China.
Do not accept any offers from Him, any of his associates or CULTURE GATEWAY. It's a huge scam. They should all be arrested.
