The 'right teacher' means the only teacher available

Postbox letter from Mike

Finding the right teacher is more about finding the only teacher available right now. We are romanticizing the idea that your average school or agency for the most part puts any real thought into who they employ.


Getting started as an English teacher

A quick overview of TEFL certificates, degrees, work permits and visas

If you didn’t go to university, don’t pretend that you did. You may be able to bluff your way through an interview and produce a certificate upon which the ink has just dried; however, all it takes is one phone call to immigration and you won’t just lose your job, you could lose your freedom.


Work permits and visas

Postbox letter from Dave

If we were looking to change schools, can we just leave the country and get another non-B visa for the new school and will it be registered at the border crossing that a person has a work permit?
