Teachers Testimonials

Alyssa OgilvieAlyssa (SHANGHAI, China)
I am proud to recommend Teachers for Asia to anyone ready to make the big move. David and his hardworking team have proven to be professional, knowledgeable, and extremely supportive. I was pleasantly surprised to receive their advice, and assistance not only throughout the recruitment & application process, but continuing over the 1 year duration of my current contract. Teachers for Asia made a concrete effort to know me as a person and as such were able to place me at school in Shenzhen, China that suited both my interests and teaching style. Currently in the last 2 months of my Shenzhen contract, I find myself in the final stages of signing my second contract through Teachers for Asia. I am confident that David, Claire, Michael, and the rest of the team at Teachers for Asia will work their hardest to find a location and a job that you will be very happy to call your own.


Rachel HaydonRachel (BUSAN, South Korea)
I did as much research as I could before choosing a recruiter, and was surprised to find that few had any reviews beyond their own website! Teachers For Asia came recommended from various TEFL boards, and I was pleased to find my experience in finding a job to be quick and painless, and far less stressful than I anticipated. At first I was interested in living and working in Seoul, but after getting to know my personality, experience, and career goals, Michael suggested a school in Busan that he thought would be the perfect fit; he was right! It’s a great school with supportive foreign and native teachers, kids who are (mostly) eager to learn, and a great city full of things to do on the weekend! If I had to do this process over, I would not hesitate to use TFA again!


Colleen LavinColleen (Thailand)
I have been teaching in Thailand for almost four months and without the advice and help of TFA, I wouldn’t have made it this far. TFA offered me practical and honest advice which I really appreciated considering it was my first time to teach, visit and live in Asia. TFA were especially helpful in placing me and a friend together in Thailand. I would and have already recommended friends of mine to use TFA if they are considering a teaching role in Asia.




Jenny Nicholson and Mark AjayiMark and Jenny (NINGBO, China)
We can highly recommend Teachers For Asia as a means to get a great job abroad. Applying as a couple, we were finding it difficult to get two jobs in the same place. TFA helped us find multiple jobs, and were completely straight with us when things didn’t work out with a school (due to visa timings, etc.). They were always keen to give us options that would suit our needs and get us out to the school as soon as possible. We’re having a great experience at our school in Ningbo, and it’s all thanks to TFA!
