Teacher Testimonials

I found Teachola very helpful, patient and professional. I initially contacted Teachola through a friend after receiving a recommendation. I found David very helpful with local knowledge of Shanghai and what to expect. This was what made my mind up because I was still nervous and unsure of taking the big step of moving abroad for the first time. Then I was put in contact with the school who Skype interviewed quickly and I was offered the job. Teachola followed up on various occasions throughout the process to ensure smooth transition and to make sure settling in China went ok.

Rhys (IB Geography, China)

Teachola were a great help and able to find me a position in a few days. I was very specific about my needs and they were able to accommodate all of them. I quickly found myself in a good school with fantastic colleagues from around the world. I'm very grateful to Teachola for their speedy and professional assistance.

James (Int Preschool, China)

My experience with Teachola has been really good. I think that they have been really professional with setting up the interviews and following up with me whenever there was a problem. Teaching Science to Grade 1 and 2 students not in their native language definitely has its challenges but there is nothing that can’t be handled if you have good relations with your co-teachers. I love living in Shenzhen; it is possibly the easiest city to get around.

Miriam (Shenzhen, China)

I recommend Teachola highly. Their efficiency and professionalism was second to none. I decided to change careers to go and teach in China, but how? After searching online in the hope of finding a reputable agency, I was lucky to come across Teachola. I emailed on my details and got a very prompt response from the admin staff. The next day I received a Skype call from David that gave me much information and reassurance. Less than a week later, with Teachola's assistance, I got a contract emailed to me by a school in Shanghai. I am two months in China at present, employed as a primary school science teacher in a state of the art school, and I find the whole experience challenging but very rewarding and most of all extremely enjoyable.

Philip (IB Chemistry, China)

Teachola contacted me rapidly and presented me with a very suitable teaching position based in Shanghai. David was very friendly and arranged the whole process in a very short period of time. One of the great advantages of Teachola is that they find work tailored exactly to your needs and qualifications. The position that I took was a great career step. I highly recommend Teachola.
