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.

Can't Wait to get to work!

I have been working with Teaching Nomad for less than a month, the placement consultant, Mike was very helpful from the first interview until I was given my contract. I did not feel like I was going about this alone. No matter what question I had he was always willing to answer the questions. He understands that this a big move and was forthcoming with information that I needed to hear. Because of this, I was able to make the right decisions for myself and my family. I am very grateful that I went through Teaching Nomad for my new job and new adventures!

Teacher

I've been extremely impressed with Teaching Nomad. I worked with Ali Jaramillo. She found positions which met and exceeded my specifications. The schools she recommended to me in China were well vetted and stable. Going overseas you worry about what sort of situation you could potentially be walking into. With Ali, I felt a great deal of trust. She listened to what I was looking for in a position and delivered multiple options in multiple cities. In addition to working with Ali, I talked with Brett Isis about enrolling in the Teacher Now program. Brett is one of the most knowledgeable people I've talked with on the future of overseas teaching and the Byzantine visa process which is China. If you have a chance, I can not recommend enough working with these two individuals.

Wonderful, Helpful Consultants

When the job I had originally been offered fell through with just a couple of weeks to go before the start of the semester, Teaching Nomad was extremely helpful finding a replacement. Within just a couple of days, I had several more offers, and eventually found something that was even better.

My consultant, Sophia, was so helpful and professional. She really took my experience and preferences into account and found potential jobs that were all great matches. I will definitely work with Teaching Nomad again in the future if need be.

Awesome Site

"Teaching Nomad" is an awesome site if you wish to get a teaching job overseas. Within two
weeks of contacting them, I was presented with several job opportunities to which I could apply to. Within three weeks, I was interviewed and hired for a job in the specific city that I had requested. My consultant, Mike Ostrowski, was very friendly, professional, and helpful. He guided me through the entire process and has continued to provide me with useful information to make my move and transition easier. I highly recommend this site.

Very Professional

Teaching Nomads was super helpful. They got me positions that matched all my criteria and helped me through the process very professionally. I have previously done this on my own, which is very time cunsuming and can get quite frustrating. But after once using Teaching Nomads, I will definitely be using their expertise and help again! You tell them what you want and they do all the leg work in searching for positions that match. You also know that there is someone out there willing to answer all your questions and that they know what they are talking about.
Very friendly, helpful and professional!

Fantastic group of helpful people

I wouldn't be teaching abroad if it weren't for the dedicated staff at Teaching Nomad.

They continually sent me job opportunities, set up interviews and follow-ups, gave great advice throughout the process, and helped me verify the legitimacy of the places I wanted to teach.

I had the privilege of working with Sophia Isis, a wonderful mentor that offered patient and persistent guidance. As a result of her help (along with the other folks at Teaching Nomad), I landed a job in Shanghai at well above market rate. Thoroughly looking forward to my year in China.

Fantastic Support and Security

From the offset, my experience with teaching Nomad was great, I would highly recommend my placement consultant Yiqin Zhu. She really made the whole process very easy and tailored everything to my needs. I can't thank her enough for the amount of hard work she put in to finding me a suitable position. Even after I got my teaching position, the support doesn't stop. Teaching Nomad have some of the largest range of teaching positions and highest paid positions. Trying to secure a safe and suitable teaching position in Asia can be an overwhelming experience at times but having a company like teaching Nomad on your side really takes the pressure off and they are always there to answer any questions, worries and give advice.

Teaching Nomad's real assets - the Placement Consultants

I stumbled upon Teaching Nomad's website simply by chance while searching for an ESL position in China and was enticed through the name alone and more so after reading the mission statement. From the moment of registering I was quickly contacted by my personal Placement Consultant, Lauren Klein, who remained in my corner every step of the way. What can I say to you Lauren, you did a great job of searching for positions suited to my specific requirements and background and your dedication and massive effort and excellent and continuous communication will not be forgotten. My trust and confidence in Teaching Nomad was exemplified through its professional website, vast job advertisements and professional business operations but to be totally honest, my overall positive experience and opinion of Teaching Nomad was all down to the hard work of my consultant, Lauren Klein.

Great and Reliable

Teaching Nomad has been great every step of the way from the introduction, helping me prepare my documents and advising me on different job applications that would be a good fit. They have always been available to help, prompt with response and very friendly and helpful. I have been hired to teach English through a job they recommended and I look forward to starting in a few months. They have also made it clear that they are there for support throughout my job. I looked at several companies and they are by far the most professional.

Thank you Teaching Nomad

Job hunting in China can be quite overwhelming. Perhaps surprisingly, this remains true whether you are searching for your first job in China or your fifth. Thanks to Teaching Nomad and Mike Ostrowski I was placed at a really amazing school that was a terrific match for me. My preference in schools was very specific, they found exactly what I was hoping for. Mike was extremely helpful and guided me throughout the entire interview process. It was definitely a pleasure to work with him, and I would recommend Teaching Nomad any day!

Great Services

My consultant Ali Jaramillo always assistant Ed in finding the best possible positions that are available to work in China. At a time that I reconsidered moving abroad they still took the initiative to assist me in finding a school that fit my specific requirements. Ali goes above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that teachers get the best positions that fits their personal critter is in fulfilling the best possible experience that can be made from teaching abroad. Teacheingnomad also provides the ease of authenticating all the documents which can be a huge hustle if the paperwork is not filled correctly.

We have dealt with Teaching Nomad for four years, and each time they exceed our wildest expectations.

Amazingly Patient and Supportive Job Finding Agency

I found a job through teachingnomad within three months. They are amazingly supportive and patient with the documentation requirements for finding a job. They also offer many courses for teaching certification and in some cases send the documentation for verification for you! I was also updated frequently by their staff. If you want to teach abroad I really recommend teachingnomad, they make finding a job convenient and easy.

World's Best Recruiter

Teaching Nomad assisted me in every step of the way to find a suitible fit teaching English abroad. I requested that we find a teaching program that would pay for my TEFL entirely. My recruiter Jayne D went above and beyond assistiting me with this. She even proofread a few emails for me that I was nervous about sending to the school that she had set me up with.

Thanks to Teaching Nomad and the awesome support I am now living the dream.

Thanks!!! 10/10

Making a Stressful Process Easy and Painfree

I came across Teaching Nomad almost by accident as I was searching for teaching positions in China. I came across an opening on their website, and almost by accident, signed up and made an account. That very same week, I received a personal email from a placement consultant, Mike, from the company to set up an interview during which he asked me very informed questions about my qualifications and experience. Following that, Mike guided me through uploading all of the necessary documents for my application, and then HE sent out my application to jobs that fit exactly what I was looking for. It only took a few days before I began to hear back directly from schools Mike sent my information to in order to set up interviews. Needless to say, I now have a position set up that is beyond anything I could have hoped to find on my own. Teaching Nomad, an entirely free service for the applicant, may seem too good to be true, but it really is that great. I have serious doubts I could have navigated the overseas job market successfully if not for the support of Mike from Teaching Nomad.
