It was incredibly intimidating to leave my home country and travel abroad to teach English in Japan, but Tamaki TEFL Recruiting (TTR) helped to support and provide a clear picture of what it would be like to teach English in Japan.
From the first interview, TTR had an emphasis on helping me understand what teaching in Japan would be like. And I whole-heartedly appreciated the informative and realistic picture they painted to ensure I understood what I was applying for.
From that interview and on, TTR focused on providing a clear timeline with in-depth information and instructions. They focus on getting you knowledgeable about job expectations, visa applications, and how to get yourself ready for the move. One of the biggest advantages of working with TTR is their advice. TTR staff are former teachers, and they provide practical advice based on their own experiences. They care about your wellbeing, and they check into make sure that you feel confident about your choice, even after you arrive in your location!
Overall, I appreciate the professional but warm attitude at TTR. They know how to get you where you need to go, and they’re willing to go the extra mile to support you. They’re a model example of how a recruiting company should operate.
What was your funniest moment?
While teaching kids in a classroom I received a phone call from a Japanese speaking customer. Trying to tell them I didn't speak Japanese I said a phrase which literally translated to "I physically can't speak Japanese". The kids burst out laughing after I said that!
