I highly recommend Travel and Teach. My recruiter was Jaemin and he was a star!! Your recruiter helps you every step of the way, checks in on you often, and makes sure there is no confusion. I moved to South Korea during the COVID-19 pandemic. Things were delayed maybe a few weeks because of paperwork processing on the US end, but overall it was faster than I thought it would be (3 months from looking into things to getting to Korea). I had heard stories of 'horror hagwons' but they will make sure you do NOT end up at one of those. I love my school and my students, and have made friends with the many other foreign teachers here. Please keep in mind that at the end of the day this is a job, so do not come if you are just looking for a vacation! But it is very rewarding if you love kids and teaching. Also don't worry too much about being in Seoul or Busan, focus on finding a school you'll be happy at and visit other cities later. ETA: you can work in Seoul or Busan if you want to. Don’t let them tell you no. There are plenty of jobs in the cities.

My contact has been working very closely with me throughout the hiring processes. He has been very patient and answered all of my many questions thoroughly, especially regarding the visa acquisition process. I have not left for Korea yet, but I had help in purchasing a plane ticket and have my entire itinerary planned out for when I arrive. The experience could not have been made easier. I am looking forward to going out there and starting to work with my new school. Overall, wonderful experience.

Jaemin with Travel and Teach has been the biggest help during this time. He was able to get me into touch with great schools in the areas I wanted to be in, and was able to answer all my questions in a timely manner. Along with making sure I would be comfortable for my interviews. Jaemin was great at explaining the contract and making sure I had the correct documents ready, especially since things are a bit different right now with covid restrictions. The whole experience was great and I highly recommend them if you're looking for an English teaching job!

Even though I haven’t left yet, the endless support that Jaemin and Travel and Teach have given me within this process has been incredible and I appreciate it beyond words. Jaemin answered allnif my questions about the process and helped me every step of the way! Ultimately Jaemin was the primary person who put in continuous and endless amounts of effort in order to find me the school that I ended up picking to work at. I can’t thank Jaemin and Travel and Teach enough!

Thinking about traveling and teaching? Look no further than Teach and Travel. I am satisfied with the help I received, especially from my recruiter, Jaemin. He was quick with responses and always addressed any concerns of mine. Within a week, I was offered a position and Jaemin assisted me throughout the whole process. I would recommend using their services to other people.
