From the day we launched Teach ESL Korea, finding reliable, rewarding schools for energetic teachers has been our number one goal. I believe we have succeeded admirably, especially when I know there are many negative stories out there about various schools in Korea. We find many of our schools by word of mouth, from current native teachers in Korea that we have met. Others we find through referrals from the schools we help, and they pass our name on to other schools they are comfortable to recommend.
We currently help about 200 teachers each year, secure jobs in both private and public schools. We have a complete team to help you during the application, and job hunt process, as well as after you arrive in Korea. If a situation with a school does occur, we are able to help immediately. We feel this is just another reason why so many of the teachers we help, pass along our name, to their friends.
One thing we suggest to all teachers who are deciding on a school, is to request a current teachers email address, so you can ask them a few basic questions about the inner workings of the school.
The most important thing to look for, in my opinion, is to make sure the school is going to be reliable, and understanding of native teachers. An extra $100 a month you might earn will mean nothing, if you are not receiving your pay in a timely manner.
