Our Teacher Placement Consultants for Teaching in Asia
David lived for almost a decade in Asia, including 4 years in China. During his time in Asia, he taught a wide variety of age groups from young learners to older university students and everything in between. As one of the co-founders at Teachola (previously Teachers For Asia), David brings a wealth of experience in the Education field and is heavily involved in working closely with our teachers and schools across China, South Korea and popular locations across SE Asia.
Ashley was based in China for nearly 5 years, where she worked in several different teaching roles including her work with University students and professional Adult students. Ashley also ran her own local business in Ningbo that promoted events for expats living in the city. Ashley works with many of our Teachola teachers both in China and back home in her native Florida.
Cara, currently based in the UK, speaks fluent Chinese Mandarin and originally studied in Taiwan as part of her Bachelor’s degree.

I found Teachola to be honest, reliable, professional and most importantly extremely trustworthy. They leave nothing up to chance, they vet every school before approving them to teachers; working with Teachola guarantees that that there will be no unwanted surprises when you arrive at your destination. I have now been working in Shanghai for three months and I am still in frequent contact with Teachola who like to check in with me to make sure I’m settling in ok.Nicky (Shanghai, China)
I found the staff at Teachola extremely professional, kind, and helpful. I have never taught overseas before, and had no idea what to do, but they walked me through each step, and were especially helpful during the EPIK application process. They were patient, honest, and didn’t push me to apply for positions other than what I was interested in. I would highly recommend the Teachola staff if you are looking for a teaching position overseas.Rebekah (South Korea)
I have been working in Beijing for the past six months, and because of Teachola the whole procedure was very easy. Teachola walked me through the interview and visa process and they gave me lots of helpful advice for what to expect of China. Their service was always there to answer any questions I had and they did so in a timely manner. I would recommend Teachola to anyone looking for a teaching position in South Korea or China.Heather (Beijing, China)
I am proud to recommend Teachola to anyone ready to make the big move. David and his hardworking team have proven to be professional, knowledgeable, and extremely supportive. I was pleasantly surprised to receive their advice, and assistance not only throughout the recruitment & application process but continuing over the one year duration of my contract in Shenzhen. Teachola made a concrete effort to know me as a person and as such were able to place me at school in Shenzhen, China that suited both my interests and teaching style.Alyssa (Shenzhen, China)
Teachola were extremely helpful in getting me a job teaching in Thailand. They responded to all of my emails on time, answering any questions I had and put my mind at ease. They put me into contact with the right people and always followed up on any questions or requests I had. Their friendly and efficient service made me confident and excited to go to Thailand, and I was not wrong; I have loved it!Lizzie (Thailand)
