Our journey with TFA Academy started when my friends and I were looking into English teaching overseas. David, Michael and the rest of the team met us exactly where we were at that stage of our lives – as final year university students looking for a combination of work and travel after graduating. We all completed our TEFL certification through TFA Academy. The program was very practical and it has equipped us to be effective teachers of English. We are currently working in Shanghai and enjoying every minute of life in China.
