Teaching for the Seoul
Submitted by Stephen - Seoul South Korea | October 19, 2017
I arrived in Seoul from Toronto in late August (2 months ago). Since arriving I have gone from never having taught in a classroom as a paid position, to being completely comfortable following a curriculum and supplementing materials to make a meaningful learning experience for students. I have met lots of other international teachers and begun making Korean friends too. I have travelled to various parts of Korea during my weekends and gotten to know my new neighbourhood as well. Travel and Teach Recruiting helped me find a placement without any concern of whether I would be paid on time, would have suitable living accommodations, and would be teaching for a reputable company. Not only that, they helped with the whole visa process and all my documentation. When I arrived, my school had Korean staff that helped me get my paperwork in order so I could get my ARC card as soon as possible and be on Korean healthcare, etc. They helped me open a bank account and set up direct deposit too. My work is right across from Gwanghwamun Square - Time Square/ Yonge & Dundas Square of Seoul. They hooked it uuuuuup!!! Thanks to Shane, Niko, Jin and the rest of the T&T team! Dy-no-mite!
Hello from Bundang!
Submitted by Amelia B - Bundang South Korea | June 21, 2017
When I first applied to Travel and Teach Recruiting, I never thought I would actually be placed. Though I'd worked in education administration, I'd never taught before. Within a few days of applying, I spoke to my recruiter, Niko, and a week after that, I had an interview with my current director! Not too long after that, I found out I had the position. Since then, Niko helped me through the process of gathering all of the necessary documents for my visa and answered so many of my (sometimes silly) questions. It was a great comfort to me, knowing that I had someone looking out for me.
Now I'm in Bundang and loving every minute. The position is a great fit for me and so is this city. I've been here for a month and wouldn't trade the experience for anything. I can't wait to see what's in store for me the rest of the year. Thank you, Niko and Travel and Teach Recruiting, for helping me get here!
I would highly recommend Travel and Teach Recruiting!

This is my third year and third school in Korea, and it's by far been the best experience, from applying to securing the position and starting to teach in the classroom.
Niko, my placement agent, was incredibly helpful and understanding from beginning to end.
The last two schools that I taught at as well as the placement agents I dealt with the secure those teaching positions, were a nightmare.
So to have someone work alongside and support me throughout this whole process was a blessing.
If you want to teach in Korea at a good school through a competent professional placement agency, Travel and Teach Recruiting is your best bet.
Great company to use for job placement in Korea
Submitted by Shannon - Seoul South Korea | April 26, 2017
I did a lot of research around recruiting agencies for Korea as I read a lot of bad things on teach in Korea forums. I saw many positive reviews about travel and teach on this site and others and chose them as well as two others companies I won't mention here.
I applied to all three at the same time but I heard back from travel and teach first who then kept in close contact from that point onward. Before I had even heard back from the other two companies, I was already being set up with an interview with one of travel and teach's schools. I was then offered a job and accepted as it was too good to turn down.
I've now been in Korea for 4 months and LOVE it here. I love my school, my coworkers (Korean and foreign) and life here in general. It's exciting every day.
I felt obligated to write a review for travel and teach as they really do what they promise they will do - their service is top notch. I have even received three emails from my recruiter Nicole since I've been here, just checking in to see how I'm doing. I should also note that I have met a lot of people in my area who had really different experiences with the company they went through.
Thanks so much to Nicole and travel and teach. I think I'll be staying longer than one year :)
They have excellent customer service

All of my issues and concerns were addressed by Travel and Teach to my liking. I also enjoyed how they followed up to check and see how I was doing here after I arrived in Korea. This is an excellent service and I will definitely recommend it to other people.
