Why Teach English: ESL?

I know you have a plethora of options to choose from when it comes to choosing the best teach abroad program. I know this because I was in your shoes not too long ago, scouring the world wide web for the best possible option. I finally chose one that felt easy, informative and affordable, but it wasn’t perfect.

I want to do it better.

In the end, I wound up teaching English abroad, living a life I had only dreamed of, and coming back changed. I had so many memorable, unique, life-altering experiences during my time abroad (and continue to do so!), and now my goal is to help everybody who shares this dream turn it into a reality — the best way I know how.

With HONESTY. I was told many things that turned out not to be true when I arrived in Thailand, and there was absolutely no reason for the lies. My experience teaching English in Thailand turned out to be surreal (better than I could have imagined!)…but it would have been even better if I’d been told the truth up front. I promise to give you the honest answers you deserve, because I know you’re smart enough to understand that this road may be challenging and likely very different from your norm, and I know that’s exactly why you’re choosing it. I know, because we’re kindred spirits, you and I, and because honesty really is the best policy.

With EXPERIENCE. I have an online TEFL certification, and experience teaching in both Thailand and China. I believe TEFL certification benefited my classroom management, and helped me create a better, more interactive learning environment for my students. I fell in love with Thailand and had a blast teaching in China. I’m happy to answer any questions you have about any aspect of the experience —living standards, money, student behaviors, etc. —and you can also read my blog to find out more about my personal experiences.

With CARE. I started this business because I genuinely believe teaching English abroad was the best decision I ever made, and I want to encourage and help more people to do it. I’m a small business and I want to keep each connection with our future ESL teachers a personal one. I want to talk with you about why you’re considering such a big life change, and hopefully take away the jitters you’re likely having. I’m here to help you answer questions about where to teach abroad, which TEFL certification course to take, what to do with your weekends and how to prepare for your trip because I want to see more people traveling abroad, teaching abroad and making meaningful global connections.

With GLOBAL AWARENESS. Our motto here is “helping blur the lines of the globe,” because I genuinely believe that meaningful travel opens hearts and opens minds. As a teacher abroad, you’re going to have an eye-opening, impactful experience. You’ll return home a better, more understanding person, and you’ll inspire those around you to do the same. Living abroad can make us more patient, aware and understanding, which I believe are three major keys to a better world.
