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.

My experience with teachingnomad

I have dealt with a number of recruiting agencies in many countries in Asia(both Asian and Western) and some were good, some rude, some unclear, some aggressive and some plainly clueless. You do sometimes get good Asian recruiters, who speak fluently and who provide good info but generally, even though they might be kind, most can't communicate well. Most western recruiters are english speakers but most are either too aggressive or very cold so either situation is not preferable. When teachingnomad agency approached me, I thought, oh well, same agency as always, nothing new but boy was I wrong.
I was dealing with a gentleman named Joseph Alter and he was superb. From the initial interviews that were concrete, informative and practical to the impressive questionnaire that asks really effective questions to the continual checkbacks up until day 1 of employment and after, Joseph has been a great help, really accomodating and supportive. The great thing I love most about them is not only the fact that they communicate everything clearly to you(in English), they have that genial but professional feel that most recruiters don't have. Most interviews didn't go well for me but time and again Joseph kept coming back with a new offer from a different institution, not just any institution but reliable authentic institutions(best offers). Joseph and teachingnomad have been phenomenal for me and anyone looking for a reliable, professional, effective yet friendly agency for teaching jobs must start with teachingnomad.

Teaching in China

I was absolutely thrilled to have Ashley working with me when trying to find a job abroad. She was incredibly helpful, understanding and flexible. At the beginning I was very skeptical about teaching over seas and backed out more than once. She remained incredibly patient with me and expressed how she thought I was right to teach abroad. Even though I was hesitant, she continued to send me positions and one of them happened to be my dream job. How could I say no? She found me various schools that fit my skill set and ultimately found the school I will be working at in the fall! I am so excited to teach in Shanghai for a year and I owe it all to her.

Very Responsive

My experience with Teaching Nomad has been nothing but exceptional. As someone who had recently attained a public school teaching license in the US but was also interested in teaching overseas, I went to Teaching Nomad for help finding schools where my credentials would be recognized. My coordinator was Jacklynn, and she guided me every step of the way. Best of all, there was very little wait before schools were knocking on my door, and an offer was made! I can recommend this agency without hesitation; they will be by your side as you explore the many opportunities out there.

PERFECT!

After signing up to the Teaching Nomad website I received an e-mail from Moira who was keen to get me started on my way to finding a job that suited me. I interviewed with her and set up my profile with documents etc. and within a week of completing it I had been offered a job with a great school! I am so excited to be off to China with a secure job in a great school with amazing benefits all thanks to Moira and Teaching Nomad!

Great job support

I was teaching English in Beijing but was looking for a different job- the job I was looking for was pretty niche, and not common in China. I worked with Josie and told her my experience and what I was looking for. She understood the difficulty of finding this type of job, but assured me she'd search. Within a couple months, she had found me an interview and I was hired within a week! She was so supportive and helpful and I would never have found this job if it weren't for her!
I cannot speak to other aspects of teaching nomad, as I have only used this to find a new job, but it was a huge help for me and I could recommend it to anyone!

Head Librarian

Teaching Nomad is an amazing service! I highly recommend working with them. I sent my resume in, a day later heard from Teaching Nomad, and by the end of that week had two very good job offers. In addition to that, I was able to take the TEFL online certification from them, which they reimburse after the 90-day probation period at my job. Their support is amazing. Great people, great program, and a great experience. Teaching Nomad is the place to go to get placed overseas!!!

Shanghai Position

Moira made the entire process a simple and enjoyable experience. She was always quick to provide answer to questions and gave meaningful support when it counted most. I deeply appreciate working with her and Teaching Nomad to find my dream position. Moira provided step by step advice and counselling for each position. Most importantly she gave realistic advice on positions and benefits. Moria was supportive through salary and benefits negotiations, always willing to step up and go to bat for me. Her inclusion in the process made for a successful job hunt. He highly value and appreciate everything her and Teaching Nomad did for me.

Teaching Nomad - Application Process

Teaching Nomad has now helped me find 2 different outstanding teaching positions in China. They have made the process of applying for teaching positions easy and painless. These positions were in Beijing and Shanghai. These cities are both extremely safe and have large ex-pat communities. These cities you can experience local Chinese culture but also have the comforts of home in the ex-pat areas. What I have seen in the international schools in these cities the schools are all outstanding. They have amazing facilities that schools back home may not have. I would recommend Teaching Nomad and teaching in China for all teachers who are looking to get a job over seas.

Jacklynn is amazing

Teaching Nomad was suggested to me by a close friend, who used it to find a great job teaching in Beijing. I decided to give it a try and it ended up being the best choice I could've made. Jacklynn has been incredibly helpful in finding me a job that suits all my needs. It made the process so much easier, as I had so much support and help along the way. Jacklynn really seems to care and has kept up with me even after I accepted the new job. It really is such a great program for teachers!!

Found a Perfect Match

I can't thank Jacklynn enough for her assistance in helping me get placed at my new school in China. After deciding to continue teaching science in China, I learned that the international program at my school would be downsizing drastically. Jacklynn helped me find a position at one of the top schools in the province. Not only would I be teaching a subject I love, but I'd get the opportunity to provide professional development to other teachers on staff. And it was all in a matter of a few weeks.
For anyone considering teaching overseas, I would highly recommend working with Teaching Nomad!

100%

I found this site just randomly searching and because of this program, a thought turned into something REAL! Josie did an AMAZING job helping me get acquainted with Teaching Nomad! She made me feel comfortable and she has this incredible way of matching a perfect school to a really excited candidate! And she didn't stop there. I had endless questions and she was always patient and kind, answering the questions fully and responding within a few hours of my question. She didn't let the 12 hour time difference get in the way of anything. I don't know what I would have done without her guidance and Teaching Nomad's wonderful online TEFL course. I now know what to expect and have resources to better run my classroom. I CANNOT wait to start this wonderful experience! I'll add more to my review after I have started in Shanghai!

What would you improve about this program?
None. Seriously, communication is the key to this program and Josie did it very well!

Great Help & Support

Josie was excellent and on the ball in getting back to me. The administration at the school has also been excellent. I've not gone overseas yet so this review is just of my experience so far. Josie did a good job interviewing me and wrote a profile that reflected my strengths. I asked her for advice in terms of negotiating the contract and she did her due diligence and replied with a well-considered response that helped me. From my experience, this is a totally professional organisation with talented staff. I would completely recommend their services.

Great Company

I would highly recommend finding a job through Teaching Nomad. I signed up with them a few months ago and it took a few weeks to decide where I wanted to teach. My placement consultant - Mary Long - was very patient whilst I was making my mind up on what to do and when I finally decided that I wanted to teach in China she was able to help me secure a job. She made the whole process simple and was very encouraging. I'm still waiting to apply for my Visa however I'm certain that this process will go smoothly as everything else has been great so far thanks to the support Mary has provided me with.

Ila Afshar

Getting in touch with Ila Afshar at Teaching Nomad was definitely the right move in my job search. Ila is very professional and always enthusiastic. She took time to know well my profile and to discuss my career plans very seriously. She helped me secure a new opportunity for the next academic year and is helping me through the whole process. This is an amazing experience and I highly recommend Ila.

Teaching Nomad was amazing

I would highly recommend getting in touch with Teaching Nomad if you are interested in pursuing a teaching career abroad. Josie in particular was amazing. She was patient, thorough, and professional in all aspects of the process. Without her guidance and persistence I wouldn't have been able to land the job that I did. Teaching Nomad has it's own reputation amongst schools so when I went in for my interview with the Principal she didn't ask me as many questions about my background/education as I was expecting because she had been given my resume from Teaching Nomad.
