I had a great experience with Teachers for Asia. They went above and beyond to find me a teaching position and kept everything completely transparent from start to finish. Teachers for Asia found my first teaching position here in Ningbo, China and I have been very happy living and working here. I have almost finished my first 1 year contract and it’s all thanks to them. I would definitely use Teachers for Asia again and recommend them to anyone looking for teaching positions in Asia.
