    Job Title

    Hello, this is embarrassing I know, but hear me out.

    I am an enthusiastic teacher. Our company has grown and has expanded, in such a way that we have an office here in which our company employs staff. Don't get me wrong, this is the "parent company", if you like, I just teach.

    So, question. I have never bothered with a business card. But the staff here want me to have one. I teach and I assess, write reports, advise... But soon, having designed two courses, I shall be advising teachers et cetera on these courses. But the manager wants a card for me for the business lunches et cetera; and hear being China, where people like to boost things in business, you know, show off a little; he is not satisfied with "teacher". Oh how humble!

    Anyway, what with the preamble gone, would someone suggest a job title. Not only do I teach (software engineers, business, and kids), in the very near future, I will be advising and directing other teachers. I was thinking "Teaching Consultant"... but...

    This is a genuine request. I am not a peacock, quite shy really.

    (ps not Academic Manager)

    Re: Job Title

    will you be advising etc specifically in terms of teaching English, or about the whole range of subjects taught in China?

    What will be the goal of these business lunches? If you come back, full of stomach, and flushed with success, what have you 'sold'?

    Thanks. The last two points are helpful.

    Teaching English. I basically have designed a job specific course and will be going to and from the odd city to advise other teachers (generally 2nd language) about the jargon, and the pitfalls that may arise when teaching the course.

    Something along the lines of coordinator, but it is not jazzy enough for the director, I fear.

    Re: Job Title

    The title teacher has already changed (as Amigos suggested) to facilitator in adullt education since there is a business relationship. Teacher and student are now facilitator and customer (business partners). The facilitator has to design a teaching program based upon his/her customer needs. This makes a needs analysis the basis for a teaching program. Financial and time constraints play an important role.
