    Not a reputable agency

    The school Reach to Teach placed me at was atrocious. I felt that it was a horrible working environment.

    If you're unfamiliar with the area, reputable schools in Taipei create healthy learning environments that allow their students to thrive. It's a travesty that not all students are experiencing this type of education, but luckily this is not the case at many schools.

    The fact that Reach to Teach aligns themselves with a school like this clearly demonstrates their lack of integrity, professionalism, and dedication to the teachers that join their agency.

    Response from Reach To Teach
    Dear Abby, I'm sorry to say that we have no record of ever having placed a teacher in Taiwan by the name of Abby or Abigail, nor do we have any records of a person named Abby or Abigail being placed in any of our programs from the University of British Columbia. As you didn't list any reason as to why you thought the school was bad or what your problem was with your school, we are assuming that you have us confused with one of our competitors. For any potential teachers reading this review, please have a look at the reviews below or the 120+ reviews on our Facebook page at: We do our best to take good care of all of our teachers. For anyone who would like to speak to one of our current teachers to find out what our services are like, please email Carrie at or John at We welcome anyone to get in touch with us about any of our programs.

    I loved my experience teaching English for the past 3 years in the Republic of Georgia and wanted to continue traveling to other parts of the world. After successfully completing the S. Korean application program, events occurred that abruptly ejected me from participating in that program. I was shocked and depressed about it and anxious about my near future plans of continuing to teach overseas.

    But Carrie and John of Reach to Teach were not only extremely professional, but also extremely supportive in helping me find an alternate opportunity in China.

    In thinking back over the entire process of applying for S. Korea and China, I now see how attentive and nurturing they were through both processes. Applying for foreign employment is not easy to navigate sometimes (even more so with Asian countries). S. Korea particularly is a gauntlet of hurdles and hoops with zero room for error. With that said, their knowledge, contacts, and experience were that much more useful in making a stressful experience, manageable and less stressful.

    I don't know much about other agencies in this field, but I would highly recommend these guys for really knowing and caring about what they do.

    Great for newbies

    For anyone looking to get involved in the 'teaching abroad' community this is a great company to go with. They help you with different options available (both between countries and within) and help with the app process along the way. They can be as involved as you want them to be as they are always available, but not overly pushy with information. Their services are free (seems too good to be true) and someone is always around to answer your questions. There is not much they do after your placement but they are there should you have questions. Just the right amount of help for me, personally.

    How could this program be improved?

    Probably have more access to alumni that have completed the program should new applicants have more specific questions.

    Considerate agency

    The first thing that comes to mind with regards to Reach To Teach is the concern they show for the well being of applicants. From the get go I always felt the importance Reach To Teach places on matching the right person to the right position! Next week I leave for Guangzhou to work at Wall Street English. Reach To Teach made it easy.

    Highly Recommended!

    Moving to Taiwan was a spontaneous decision that could not have happened without the help of and encouragement from Reach to Teach. After receiving a reminder that my TESL's groupon would soon expire, I figured I should do the course. Then, after completing the course, I figured I should have a look at what the ESL market had to offer.
    I was immediately attracted to Reach to Teach owing to it's stellar ratings and reviews and decided to send them my documents to get more information. The next morning I had a warm and exciting email waiting from Carrie providing me with thorough information on the process. Her professionalism, passion for ESL Education and the expat life in Asia had me immediately hooked on the idea of moving to Taiwan. Through her incredible efforts, I was beginning my training at a great school (Kojen American School) in Taipei, less than a month later.

    Since then, Reach to Teach has regularly checked in and hosted some fantastic events for teachers. I have not had any issues this far with relocating, getting set up in Taiwan or with the school I have been placed with. Carrie and the rest of the staff at Reach to Teach offered such sound advice on how to prepare, and have solid relationships with the schools they work with, ensuring an easy transition.

    I would highly recommend Reach to Teach to anyone considering teaching overseas!
