    Straightforward, honest recruiting.

    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.

    Not bad at all!

    I was getting frustrated with looking for jobs online and then I found teaching nomad. The range of potential job opportunities is larger than I have seen elsewhere and they all seem very interesting.

    My recruitment consultant was great throughout the whole experience. She always managed to make time for my many questions and she took a genuine interest in all stages of my application.

    Would definitely recommend

    Speedy way to Shanghai
    04/25/2016

    I found Teaching Nomad after doing several weeks of research about teaching abroad. I did not like the idea of applying through agencies due to a prior bad experience with a different recruiting company. After reading some wonderful review of Teaching Nomad, I decided to submit an application. Once I sent in an initial application, I was contacted very promptly by Oliver Gorman. I was open to where to teach in Asia, and Oliver quickly made me aware of the many benefits of Shanghai. With a Master's in Education, I did not want to go teach at just any school. Oliver was able to secure me multiple interviews with some of the top high schools in Shanghai. He was very supportive throughout the entire interview process. I started interviewing mid March, and was able to secure a position at a wonderful school by mid April. The process was very quick ( minus the multiple teaching interviews via skype with the actual schools). It is very reassuring to know you are going to work with a reputable company because top schools will not deal with mediocrity. Currently I am going through the visa process with my school and Oliver has been there to check in and help in anyway the entire time. I look forward to working with him in the future and would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone looking to teach overseas. If you are a quality teacher, they will find you a quality position at a good school.

    Great recruiting agency, very helpful and professional
    04/14/2016

    Teaching nomad provides an excellent service. The process ran smoothly from beginning to end. My recruiter was Sophia. She was extremely helful and found me exactly what I was looking for. She followed up on my interview, start date and offered help if I needed it. There are many 'questionable' recruiting agencies around. I Would definitely recommend Sophia and teaching nomad. Was a pleasure to work with them.
