I found Teachers For Asia to be honest, reliable, professional and most importantly extremely trustworthy. They leave nothing up to chance, they vet every school before approving them to teachers; working with TFA guarantees that that there will be no unwanted surprises when you arrive at your destination. I have now been working in Shanghai for three months and I am still in frequent contact with TFA who like to check in with me to make sure I’m settling in ok.
