A Great Help!


I was worried about applying to EPIK as I had no idea what I was doing, but Reach to Teach really helped me out with the whole process! I worked with Jason Cruzan throughout the whole process and he was there to assuage any worries that I had. Applying through them made it easier and I felt prepared for the application, the interview, and for the experience in general. I actually already recommended them to a friend who is also applying for the program. I would work with them again and would recommend to anyone hoping to apply for EPIK or any other teaching programs that they help with!

How can this program be improved?

I think the one thing I was looking for was a forum or page where past and future teachers could talk and ask questions.


EPIK Program through Reach to Teach


I decided to apply to the EPIK program in South Korea with the help of Reach to Teach. For months, I personally worked with Recruiter Jason Cruzan. Applying to EPIK can be confusing, frustrating, and extremely meticulous. Jason answered every question I had, no matter how small. EPIK is very specific about the application, interview, and official documents that must be sent. Jason has worked with them for years and knows exactly what is expected from EPIK applicants. Without the help of Reach to Teach, I would not have been able to complete the application process to receive a placement from EPIK. I highly recommend them for anyone who is interested in teaching in Asia. Reach to Teach is the best!

100% for Reach to teach!


When I made the decision to teach abroad, I contacted a few recruitment agencies. Reach to teach responded within one day and I had an interview with them they day thereafter. Since then, through the whole process of packing up my life in one country to move to the next, Reach to Teach had been a constant support.
Reach to Teach has been there through every single obstacle I've faced in Taiwan (and I had my fair share) and Carrie Kellenberger is honestly the greatest! I would recommend this agency to anyone at any given time!

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 [email protected] or John at [email protected]

We welcome anyone to get in touch with us about any of our programs.

Stress Relievers


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.
