I am especially grateful to David at Teachers For Asia for his efforts to get me a job in Shenzhen. I had the opportunity to meet him personally in Korea and he immediately struck me as sincere and genuine. Little did I know I would be contacting him a few weeks later after my own job at the time turned out to be another ESL horror story. With his attentive help and the TFA staff I was able to quickly secure my current ESL position here in Shenzhen. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a teaching position in Asia.
