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 - Family First

"When moving a family of 5 half way across the world we needed to work with a company that did more than just find me a job. and that’s exactly what we got with Teaching Nomad. I can honestly say that if it were not for the staff of Teaching Nomad helping us when we got to Shanghai I don’t know what my family and I would have done. They truly took care of us from my first interview to my first day on the job. I sincerely recommend anyone looking for a job to go with Teaching Nomad. The people there really make the difference!

Shanghai up close and personal

Day to Day

at work:
I plan, prepare, teach as usual.

at home:
I watch online tv, listen to music mostly all of which are streamed or downloaded freely here in China.
I have a 10M internet connection the fastest in Shanghai. I compost, eat vegetarian and occasionally host couch surfers.

in the community:
I attend and co-host couch surfing meetings regularly, I share information, knowledge and ideas with people in my circle of friends.

Reviews specifically related to Teaching Nomad.

Brett was a pleasant recruiter. The paperwork was completed on time without delay.

My wishlist...

I would have wished for more regular communication and more of a support network after the official paper work was completed.

Why is it that only the squeaky wheel gets the oil?
I think that sometimes there should be a proactive approach. Including but not limited to a checklist of common issues for new and veteran teachers. Maps, Places of interest, Service locations, Rental places, Social Events and so on. I think that even if someone is already in the city they can possibly glean more information from the recruiter as they have access to multiple teachers in the same area with the same needs and also a different perspective.

Go with Teaching Nomad!

I applied to teach English in China through Teaching Nomad. My recruiter, Brett, was very professional in the recruitment process and got me placed quickly and effortlessly at a REALLY good school in Suzhou. The school is called Suzhou Foreign Language School and I can say this is hands down the best school I could hope to work at in China. People here are amazingly friendly. Thanks to Brett for hooking me up! But anyway, this review is about Teaching Nomad, so back to that. If a recruiter does their job right, they go almost unnoticed. They just hook up Party A with Party B. Aside from interviewing the applicant and collecting information, their main task is to match a job seeker with an employer. Brett at Teaching Nomad did that perfectly and effortlessly. I would recommend him to anyone wanting a hassle-free experience.
