Loving this exposure thanks to you guys

I have been teaching English in Shanghai since the past 2 months. The experience so far has been really positive. The school at which I am teaching has a great environment and I have got fantastic colleagues here. Shanghai is an amazing city that has a large community of expatriates. There is a huge scope for socializing as well, which helps in achieving work-life balance. I would like to thank On the Mark TEFL for providing me with this absolutely fantastic job opportunity.

What would you improve about this program?
By adding more countries perhaps. Not sure what else could be improved in their services.

Helpful and Supportive

On The Mark were extremely professional and supportive in helping me find an English teaching job in China. Applying for an employment overseas is not easy to navigate at times. But the team at On The Mark was really responsive and attentive throughout the entire process. Their experience, contacts and knowledge was very handy in finding me the best job and making the experience stress free. I would highly recommend these guys.

Highly recommend

I am currently teaching in Shanghai and about to finish my contract. After a little bit of research, I found On the Mark Education online. On the Mark has been very helpful and positive but realistic at the same time. They answered my questions within a day and placed me in a very good school in Shanghai again. Everything happened very fast to be honest and I think it was because I was already in Shanghai. It has been such a relief to have everything go smoothly. I would/will recommend On the Mark Education to anyone who is thinking about doing the same thing. Thank you

My China experience

Myself and husband got married two days before our big move to China. the build up to our fresh start was nerve wrecking and very exciting. I didn't do much research on the city as I wanted to be challenged and the fact that I didn't know much of what I was getting myself into was rather exciting.

When we arrived in China,I was filled with mixed emotions but after settling into our new home and new place of employment the mixed emotions started fading. I have really fallen income with China and I would recommend that anyone do it.

My recruitment company has played a big role in helping me get here. I have experienced professional service, if I had any questions my recruiter helped me immediately. This company is amazing!!!!!

Thank you On the mark TEFL!!!!!

Life in China

I've been in China for just over 8 months now and all i can say is wow! My wife and I found On The Mark TEFL and decided to find work through them. The helped us out with placement in no time. Before we knew what was happening, we were in China already.

It has been a rough ride. China is unlike any place that i have been and it took a while to get into the groove of things. That being said, i love this place so much! Coming here was definitely one of the best decisions that I've made in my life. I love the culture and how much simpler things are on this side of the world.

I would recommend On The Mark TEFL to any of my friends that have completed a TEFL/TESOL/CELTA course.

Thank you for all your assistance thus far.

My 1st year in China

My first time in China was a mixed review, as it took me a while to settle in. I unlike most, did not do much research and dove head first, but thankfully I had an excellent support structure from the company as well as my recruitment agency On The Mark Tefl. I was assisted by the school from the time I landed at the airport, till the day of my departure upon completion of my contract. I was also pleased at the on going support provided by my recruitment agency, as they were very professional, timely and continued to help me throughout the duration of my stay in Shanghai, which is unlike a recruitment agency, once you've been placed. For the professionalism shown, I would have to give On The Mark a 5 star rating, and would encourage anyone looking to take their first step working aboard to go through On The Mark.

What would you improve about this program?
Not sure at this time, but for a starter, it is an excellent entry
