    Teaching abroad hassle free!

    I had a really bad experience with another recruitment agency that it almost made me give up the idea of teaching abroad but luckily a friend suggested Teaching Nomad! The process was simple and straightforward while my recruiter guided me every step of the way. My recruiter Priya advised me on the steps to take when looking for a job in China as well as what to expect when moving to a new country for the first time. She was even nice enough to meet up with me to see how I was doing a month after being in China! Needless to say, Teaching Nomad made finding a teaching job stress-free and I would recommend them to anyone interested in teaching abroad!

    First off, Teaching Nomad is special because of the personal touch they share with their clients. My family and I were fortunate to have Ila Afshar as our placement coordinator. From the moment we interviewed until the day we signed our contracts, Ila was our daily guide. She spent time getting to know us and made sure we were comfortable throughout each step. She was meticulous in every detail of our offers, our contracts, teaching us about the tax system and helping us prepare for what we would encounter during the visa process. We would have been lost without her. Teaching Nomad was professional and personal. I would recommend Ila and this company to all teachers. They will connect you with current teachers and answer all questions that will arise during the process. We are truly thankful for our relationship with Teaching Nomad and are excited to meet them all during g their 2017 celebrations!

    This is the first experience Ive had with a recruiter. Me and my partner applied together and Teaching Nomad did everything to help us. Everyone is professional, kind, and they genuinely care about your needs and wants. They are very friendly and welcoming. The website also has alot of useful things before you arrive in the country. They answered every question and email and were so helpful. I would recommend this recruiter to anyone looking to work in China!

    Sophia is awesome!

    If you are looking for someone who will tell you exactly like it is, without cutting any corners, Ila Afshar is that person! Ila's knowledge, professionalism and honesty, when it came to finding me a placement was phenomenal. Not only did she find me a placement that I would be excited about, she stayed on top my questions and concerns. I enjoyed the easiness in our interactions, as Ila replied to my emails within a day, no matter when I contacted her.

    If you are interested in spending a year, or more, overseas and want the support of someone knowledgeable and personable, get in touch with Ila, you won't regret it!

    Wonderful experience!
    04/29/2016

    China was not even on my list of places to teach abroad. I was determined to teach in Sweden, but once I realized that was next to impossible as a non EU citizen I got very depressed. My friend taught in China for 3 years and said she had a wonderful experience and told me to reach out to Teaching Nomad. I'm so very thankful I did! They responded right away and I was lucky to get the best placement consultant ever, Ila Afshar. She not only got me excited about the prospect of teaching in China, but made the whole process seem less scary. She was very knowledgeable. When I had questions on things that came up in one of my offers she went out of her way to get me several points of view from her and her colleagues' experiences to make sure I had all the information I needed. She was personable which was important to me. It gave her the ability to help me make decisions on options I was debating even though she hadn't met me in person. She always chose the option I was leaning towards myself, and it made me feel more confident that she agreed. She has offered to be there to answer questions even after the process of finding a position is done. I cannot say enough great things about her and about Teaching Nomad. I hope to be able to meet her one day and thank her in person!

    How could this program be improved?

    I didn't actually go through the certification program with TN. I just used a placement consultant.
