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.

If you want to teach in Asia, Teaching Nomad is the solution.

Teaching Nomad was so helpful with my search for a teaching position in Asia! They were extremely friendly and very professional. The interview process was very straightforward and they gave me useful tips for my interviews with employers. I found a position effortlessly and it was because Teaching Nomad was there with me every step of the way. They helped from start to finish beginning with my TEFL certification and even helped me get oriented when I arrived in Asia. If you're looking for a teaching position in Asia and are lost as to where to start, definitely choose Teaching Nomad to help with the process!

Ila Afshar is your best bet for finding the perfect teaching opportunity

Ila has constantly been there to help with any and every question I had (and I had plenty). She walked me through step by step the entire visa and application process and even helped me to find an affordable TESL program. I would never have found this amazing opportunity if not for her help.

She is genuine and kind and you can tell that she cares about her clients. Teaching Nomad is an excellent company with very high standards. They are extremely selective in the schools they will work with, so you know you're not walking into a scam or a lousy job.

If you are looking to teach abroad in any location provided by Teaching Nomad, I implore you to contact them and ask for Ila Afshar. She can literally make your teaching abroad dream come true.

What would you improve about this program?
Really nothing. I had no issues at all with the program. It turned out better than I expected.

Confident and Professional

As a first timer leaving the country for a job rather than personal travel it was an easy process thanks to the help of Teaching Nomad. The staff from day one was beyond exceptional. The recruiter I worked with was always contacting me and quick to respond with any question I had for her. The process from accepting to receiving the actual contract is a bit long, however I never felt forgotten. My recruiter started helping me find locations for apartments based on her knowledge and my personality. It has been such an easy transition thanks to their expertise and professionalism. The people within Teaching Nomad want the absolute best for their candidates and will ensure their needs are met.

Teaching Nomad - Great Experience

My husband and I had the privilege of working with Ila from Teaching Nomad. I cannot begin to express the amount of peace and professionalism we experienced working with her! She was readily available to answer any doubts or hesitations and provide us with the best possible teaching positions to choose from. If you're looking to work with someone who will make you feel safe and goes the extra mile to find suitable job opportunities, I would definitely recommend Ila! :)

The Perfect Job Finders!

I was referred to Sophia by a friend and she was so helpful. I emailed her about wanting to get a teaching job in Shanghai and she responded right away and I was able to set up a Skype session with her to figure out what I was looking for. I had a previous offer from another school and wasn't sure if it was a fair offer. She assured me that I could find a better paying salary and one closer to where I wanted to live. She sent me everything I needed to do and then sent it over to the employers. Within a few days I had interviews set up and several offers that were higher than my first one! Teaching Nomad is fast and efficient and very knowledgable about where the best fit would be for you. I highly recommend going through them!

Teaching Nomad is Great!

Teaching Nomad was great! They take making you the best teacher you can be seriously. Very helpful with providing information on local things while your there, very helpful in helping you find housing as well once you arrive, and most of all helpful in helping you find a great teaching position with a competitive salary. Above all I really appreciate their dedication to making sure you take your position seriously and understand the lives you will be affecting as a teacher. Great motivational people that encourage raising the bar pass mediocrity. Definitely recommend to all who love teaching.

What would you improve about this program?
A little clearer on directions during the TEFL course, besides that everything was great.

Placement in Taiwan

Oliver Gorman at Teaching Nomad was a great recruiter. He was very professional throughout the process and I was able to secure a job with my desired placement quickly and easily. With his help I felt prepared for my interview, and I knew he could answer any other questions I might have. The fact that Teaching Nomad only works with reputable schools is very reassuring. By going through Teaching Nomad I knew that the company I would be working for would be professional too.

What would you improve about this program?
I wanted to go to Taiwan to teach, Teaching Nomad only listed one company they work with there. Broadening their reach within Taiwan so there are more job listings in that country would be helpful. However, I love my placement with HESS International in Taiwan.

Extremely Helpful

I highly recommend Teaching Nomad and their recruiters; they were fully helpful throughout the entire process. They answered all of my questions in a timely manner, while I was taking the TEFL course and finding a school. They are very reliable and knowledgeable about all aspects of this experience. I also felt the majority of the course helped to prepare me immensely and I was able to take a lot away from it, to apply to my teaching position.

Maggie from Teaching Nomad

I moved to China after being offered a job in a private training centre. Needless to say, I didn't end of completing my contract. So, feeling helpless and stranded in China, one of my friend's gave me Maggie's number ( Maggie is a recruiter for Teaching Nomad ) and I immediately contacted her for help.

What a blessing! I am now a teacher at one of the most wonderful Kindergartens and I am thoroughly enjoying my China experience and adore my job. Not only does Maggie go out of her way to help you but she takes all your wants and needs into consideration. Maggie, if it weren't for you, I would have never stayed here and I wouldn't have had the opportunities I have now. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for all the hard work you all do at Teaching Nomad and I hope you have a wonderful New Year <3

Thank you!!!

Wow, where to start? I have so many positive things to say about this process with the assistance and support I have received. First, I must sing the praises of my Personal Placement Recruiter, Ila Afshar. Ila went above and beyond in finding me a job that was the perfect fit for me. She made me feel completely calm and comfortable in the interview process and was so attentive and patient with all the questions I had. She was so quick to follow and guided me through the whole process. This is the second contract that I have had in China. If I had know how helpful Teaching Nomad was, I would have most definitely used them to help find first contract. Ila made this whole process smooth and stress free. I have recommended Teaching Nomad to a few friend after seeing how quickly I found a job that was the perfect match for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

The Easy Way.

I had a fairly direct and easy connection to a company in Taiwan. They are still expanding in Taiwan, so there is only one company that they are actively working with during this season, but I'm sure that will change in the future. I don't really want to work in China yet, so it was my preference that limited my options more than anything.
Ila was very friendly and helpful, and even when I made the mistake on the time of our interview, the time zone difference, she just rescheduled and rolled with it. I haven't made it to Taiwan yet, but I am still in touch with Teaching Nomad and the company I will be working for, giving me extra support in a new country.

While I'm sure there are flaws, I didn't find any in my experience with my contact or the company.

Best Company That you'll find

Honestly, my experience with teaching nomad has been amazing. One of the few honest companies that you'll find in this line of work. The extend that my recruiter Sophia has went through, not only while I was in my homeland, but also when I arrived in China, is beyond expectation.

They will go beyond and above to try to make your experience abroad work out. Especially when everything around you is not working out (and many, many problems can and will arise during your stay) my recruiter was there for me. The honesty and integrity that they provide is very, very hard to find abroad, and having a western contact is essential.

I would definitely not be here without their help. Thank you, and wish you the best.

Very helpful recruiter start to finish!

Hi all! I've only just secured my placement thanks to Teaching Nomad. Sophia was really helpful and communicative throughout the process, reassuring me about starting my new life abroad and generally explaining any uncertainties I had.

What would you improve about this program?
help with up front costs of getting to china
possibly a Western contact in China to meet and greet?
