Questions & Answers

Yes! A teaching degree is not required to teach abroad. In many cases experience and/or a TEFL certification is an adequate qualification. We place couples all the time!

In such a case we would recommend the individual to contact the authorities to report the assault. This would include local police as well as the consulate or Embassy of your country. Of course we would never work with a school or organization that allowed an assault to occur.

Yes. An individuals ethnicity will not affect their work visa application.

The simple answer is yes but it's important to consider where the child will go to school or who will take care of them while you're working. Many Monday - Friday schools will offer a tuition benefit.

Teaching Nomad and Madison are Incredible!

I am blown away by the professional and timely services I have received from Teaching Nomad! Madison was my placement consultant, and she was very thorough in providing great leads. She listened to my preferences and referred me to some top notch schools. The interviews were coming through faster than I could accept them! She helped analyze the contracts and compared some of the countries I was pondering to help me determine the best fit. When I finally accepted a position, she sent her congrats and made it very clear that her services does not stop there. She is so willing to help me through the visa process and to answer any questions that may arise. I have never gained that much support with any other teach abroad service. I am so glad that I had Madison and Teaching Nomad on my side! I can't wait to start the next chapter of my teaching career in Jiaxing, China!

Position in Shanghai

Thank you to Lauren Klein and Teaching Nomad. I have recently been offered a position to teach English in Shanghai. Lauren was excellent in mediating on my behalf and found me a suitable position very quickly. I had an interview which was very pleasant and I was offered a position soon after that. All my questions and concerns were responded to swiftly and I am happy with the service I received. The most noteworthy part of the service was the support offered to me throughout the entire process. I am excited about being in a dynamic city like Shanghai as well as having an enriched experience of Chinese culture. Thank you Lauren for your warmth, professionalism and support. I will definitely be recommending more of my friends to you and Teaching Nomad.

Working in Shanghai

I have been teaching English as a second language for four years, and thanks to Teaching Nomad, I will begin teaching at an international school in August. I am traveling with my girlfriend, and we initially thought that it would be difficult to find two high paying positions in the same area. However, Sylvia at Teaching Nomad was a great help in finding two excellent teaching positions for myself and my girlfriend. We were presented with several great options and chose the one that best suited our situation. After gaining employment, Nomad continued to assist us with preparing our documents. Nomad is the third agency I have used to gain employment over the four years that I have been teaching and are easily the best. I have since recommended Teaching Nomad to friends who are considering a move to China.

Starting my new teaching job in August 2019!

In short, Darrah OFlaherty is simply amazing at her job. Her professionalism was very clear from the first time we chatted over the phone. She asked me several targeted questions to get to know me and to identify exactly the type of role I was looking for. Within minutes of ending our initial phone call, she emailed me a list of about ten schools that she thought fit the criteria that we talked about. She had me go over the job descriptions in detail and identify and give her feedback on the ones I liked and didn’t like. She then submitted my resume based on the feedback I provided. She really listened to me and I feel like she had my best interest at heart. Thanks to Darrah and the great staff at Teaching Nomad, I found the right teaching position that meets my needs and wants and I’ll be moving to Shanghai in August 2019!

What would you improve about this program?
I think the program is great! Wouldn’t change a thing. Darrah O’Flaherty is really great!

Teaching Nomad

Madison Van Doren was my recruiter and oh boy was she amazing! She responded quickly and was on top of contacting any school I had questions about! I could of not asked for a better recruiter! She was quick to answer any question I had and made things as simple as could be. This was a great experience and even went to one of their job fairs. It paid off and everyone there was extremely helpful. The job fair didn't cost me anything and neither did the amazing effort of Madison. I still am in shock that this program is so amazing and is absolutely free. I have a degree in education but from my understanding they even are willing to help you with getting a TEFL. Everyone was extremely professional and made the chore of looking for a job an easy experience. Overall, I am extremely happy I decided to go through Teaching Nomad!

What would you improve about this program?
I do not believe there is really anything to improve on!

Teaching in Shanghai

When my husband and I were looking for teaching positions in China, our contact Madison at Teaching Nomad was so helpful! We were really nervous about the job search process because we needed to find jobs together and we were planning on doing a decent amount of traveling, so we needed a job with good benefits and good vacation time. Madison really listened to us when we expressed what we were looking for and helped us find jobs at the same school as each other with awesome benefits in the city of our choice. I definitely recommend Teaching Nomad to anyone looking to teach abroad. It made a complicated situation a little less complicated. We are really looking forward to our new positions and plan on using Teaching Nomad in the future as we search for jobs in other countries.

Very happy with service

Teaching Nomad as well as my recruiter Lauren Klein, have been very helpful in assisting me to secure a job in China. I received regular updates about new jobs and I am very happy with the quality of school I aquired a teaching position in. I appreciate how Lauren was able to find a school in the city I was most interested in (Shanghai) and in the salary range I was looking for. Also she has been very supportive ever since. The company also provides helpful information about moving to China and aquiring the right documents etc. It's great to get that extended support. I'm delighted and can't wait to start my new job in August! I would definitely recommend the company to anyone who is looking to explore a new culture as well as expand their professional career.

Teaching Nomad is the best teachers' placement agency- Madison Van Doren is the best placement consultant

Madison is the best recruiter that I have ever met! She helped me get a job within 2 weeks of my first meeting with her. She provided me with resources that helped gain a greater insight into the area I wanted to go into. Which in turn made the interview easier as I knew a lot about the job I was applying for. When you work with Madison you also have her contact details which makes it easy for you to communicate with her and she only puts you forward for roles you are suitable for. I would recommend her and the agency to anyone who is looking to get into English teaching. In a nut shell, my experience of working with Madison was exceptional. From initial contact until she successfully placed me into an English teaching Role, she consistently supported me in my applications. She went above and beyond to ensure I was prepared for interviews and provided an approachable but professional service. Highly recommended.

Teaching Nomad

Teaching Nomad was incredibly helpful in my wife and my job search. We learned about the program through a friend that previously used the program to successfully find teaching positions, and we are glad we took his advice. Teaching nomad was very prompt and patient with us throughout the job search process and showed a great deal of professionalism. The initial interview and providing of information was easy, and teaching nomad used that information to help us a apply for jobs we were interested in. We quickly received interviews with companies and ended the process with our first choice position. Teaching nomad made the job search as easy as possible for us and we would recommend their services to anyone wishing to teach in other countries!

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
We would have worked with teaching nomad earlier to start the document authentication process for Chinese work visas.

Impressed by Teaching Nomad's Services!

I've been teaching abroad for about five years, and I'm very happy with the services and support Teaching Nomad has provided during my search for employment in China. This has definitely been the most positive, friendly recruitment experience I've had!

My placement consultant, Madison, was patient and knowledgeable, answered all of my questions in a timely manner, and guided me through all steps of the screening, interviews, contract review process, etc. Utilizing her expertise, she explained pertinent details to ensure my applications moved smoothly through each respective school's hiring procedures. Ultimately, I found the position which best matched my criteria and received support during the complicated visa process.

I would 100 percent recommend Teaching Nomad's services for anyone looking for professional, reliable and efficient support in securing a teaching job abroad.

Excellent Experience!

My placement specialist Darrah was fantastic! I felt like I was able to be relaxed over the course of finding a teaching job in China (which happened very quickly with Darrah's help). The overall experience was painless and every person I had any contact with at Teaching Nomad was professional and very supportive. They really do walk you through every element of the application process and finding the school that's right for you. I really could not recommend them more for teaching overseas. The school they found for me was almost a perfect fit right off the jump. They clearly have a very good relationship with the schools they work with to place teachers. My teaching position is starting in Shanghai on May 25th 2019 and I could not be more excited!

Outstanding service

The process of looking for a job in China is not only time consuming, it is daunting because you have no idea if the school's sales pitch is true. Having worked in a training centre that oversold, I was weary and sceptical of landing another ine of those!

Being recommended by a friend to Teaching Nomad was the best thing ever! My placement consultant, Lauren, was super involved at every process. What's also great about the agency is that they do their best to match you as closely as possible to what you want, in an area you desire and so forth!

They also have occasional job fairs that sets them apart. There you get to potentially be set up with an interview, meet-and-greet potential employers and get as much information as needed! That's where I managed to secure my next job and I am more than happy with the school!

Teaching Nomad is reputable, knows what they are doing and gives the best service!

What would you improve about this program?
The program doesn't need any improvement in my opinion. They have done a lot of work in understanding this market and needs analysis of teachers.

I highly recommend traveling nomad!

Traveling Nomad has been nothing but wonderful to me and my husband. We worked with Mike and he was very quick, kind, and helpful. Any questions we had were answered quickly and many helpful resources were provided to us. We are now settled in ShangHai and we love it! The group we are working for is Kids Castle, so far they’ve been good. ShangHai is super clean, super beautiful, super safe and there is always loads to do.

Great Service

My consultant - June - was a constant and consistently helpful individual who walked me through the process from start to finish. I now have a good job at a great school with an impressive benefits package. I really recommend teaching nomad and I'm glad I used their service. I would also mention that if you complete their TEFL training they will reimburse you for the cost two months after you secure your first position and they vet the schools you will apply to.

What would you improve about this program?
It was comprehensive from beginning to end. No suggestions or improvements.
