Teaching in Northern Thailand
Submitted by Nadezhda - Lamphun | July 05, 2017
On my way to my placement in Lamphun I got to stay at Kru M's and Matt's house in Sukothai. Kru M showed me around Sukothai and I picked up some Thai from her. Everything with my placement went smoothly- I saw two different places to live in and picked the one I preferred, met my supervisor and got ready to teach. Overall, Kru M and Matt are very helpful. When I had an issue needing to renew my visa they gave me the help and instruction I needed to fix the problem. They are always very quick to respond to questions I have, and overall are very welcoming, helpful, cool people.
Going through an agency definitely takes the headache out of figuring out paperwork. I've heard of some bad scam agencies out there- so I'm very glad I was connected to this agency. It's without a doubt a very reliable agency with excellent communication!
Why its best to have an agent
Submitted by Sandra Tandy - Bang Mun Nak Australia | June 14, 2017
To teach in Thailand, I went about it in two ways. Initially,I dealt directly through the school and for my second posting I went through an agent, Matt. I do wholeheartedly recommend the latter. If anyone is wondering what the benefits are please continue reading.
Matt knows the schools and the local community and so can provide helpful up to date information before and when you arrive.
He helps organise all the paper work for you visa run.
Matt makes himself available to assist with any queries. He's dealt with all the problems of teaching abroad so can offer sound advice.
He goes the extra mile for you. In my case,I had to to leave the country before pay day and he organised for my pay to go into the bank 10 days earlier. (soooo helpful)
He treats his clients as professionals.
Matt also is very social and approachable. He loves a chat.
Living and loving Thailand

Working here in Thailand for some time now, I have seen foreigners go through difficulties from taking care of important documents, having not so favorable teaching conditions to adjusting to the culture. I myself had my share of difficulties on these. Matt and Khru M helped me a lot in countless ways in situations that i thought i had no solution to! Both of them have adequate knowledge and experience to handle any visa and contract issues as well as both understand Western and Thai culture's similarities and differences. Their deep understanding of both cultures needs and wants can make any foreigner like me feel good and settled to where I am now. I am grateful for all the help they extended me and all good times I have shared with them and their wonderful kids. When you work with Matt and Khru M, you will be in good hands.
Amazing living in amazing Thailand.

I truly had the time of my life in Thailand and my experience would not have been the same if not for Matt and Kru M.
When it comes to living in Thailand, being able to speak the language can drastically improve your experience. Matthew is fluent in Thai, which allows him to act as, among many other things, a highly efficient middleman. He has a vast understanding of the Thai culture which proves very important when assisting you in getting settled in your new environment. This understanding can translate to excellent advice when it comes to interacting, working and living in Thailand.
On a personal note, Matthew is an exceptional human being who has gone above and beyond for me during my time in Thailand. From seemingly small tasks like fixing my cellphone (which can be incredibly difficult with the language barrier) to larger ones like purchasing a motorcycle. He'll even advise you on the tastiest milk to purchase in 7/11! The day I met Matt was the same day I realized my visa was set to expire. He drove me 6 hours to the border without a moments hesitation and helped me avoid a rather large fine. This is the sort of man and agent you want assisting you in a foreign country.
I can promise you now that when you first meet Matt and Kru M (along with their beautiful kids), you will appreciate their value and the positive influence that they will have on your time in amazing Thailand.
An exhilarating experience

I am currently working in Bangmulnak at a high school right next to Nan river. The town is rich with wildlife, waking up with birds singing and not going to bed without watching a beautiful sunsets. The people here are very friendly and kind and I won't forget to mention the mouthwatering food. To top up my experience Matt and Cru M are always working behind the scenes to ensure that everything runs smoothly, you don't have to worry about a thing! :)
