Just to reiterate: Our goal is to send quality teachers to quality schools, period. If you want to work with a company that all of the employees have lived, taught and placed teachers in Korea for over ten years, and who will continue working for you after you arrive in Korea, then teachenglishinkorea.org would love the opportunity to work with you. Unlike other recruiters, we at T.E.I.K. pride ourselves on helping build our teachers social network by introducing new teachers to our current teachers that are living in Korea to help build a sense of community and to help our teachers smoothly transition in to a new country, culture and adventure. Most recruiters are Korean, Korean schools or Korean owned agencies and they care mostly about the school, T.E.I.K. on the other hand is teacher centric, where your needs come first. Other recruitment agencies believe that their job is finished the minute you arrive in Korea, but we at T.E.I.K. believe that our job is only half finished and we keep in contact throughout your entire placement. Check out our testimonials pages (testimonials I & testimonials II) and feel confident that you will be working with a company who you can understand and more importantly, who can understand you.

If you are not 100% certain that you feel that you would be a great candidate to teach English in Korea, then don't waste both of our time because we only want to work with caring and honest individuals who have an adventurous spirit, love to travel, meet new people and who love teaching children. We hope that you choose to go to Korea through us and have an amazing experience like we did, you won't regret it if you decide to go. I paid off $25,000 in student loans in my first 15 months in Korea and the average teacher saves $15,000-$20,000 per year. All of us at TEIK were able to meet new lifelong international friends, learn about an ancient culture, travel to several exotic neighboring countries and have fun doing it!
