Quality teacher placement in Taiwan!
My wife and I came here three years ago to teach English
to children. We both had been volunteering and professionally working teaching ESL while
going through university, and thought we were prepared for the big jump to Taiwan. We were
The problems we
encountered fall into three broad categories; the level of professionalism in the delivery
of English as a Second Language; the difficulty getting our basic requirements met in a
Chinese speaking country; and the lack of friends and community.
Taiwan Teachers is about facing these problems. We find responsible,
enthusiastic people and provide them with the resources they need to teach English at the best
schools, those schools which value and reward their teachers.
We are also about making our teachers comfortable. One of our basic
principles is "a happy teacher is a good teacher." We take you to see apartments
and help to find roommates if you want them (details). We help you find a used
scooter (details) as well as get a
Taiwanese drivers license and registration (details). Most importantly we advise you on
every step of the visa process. We tell you how to get your visitor's visa, medical check,
working permit, resident visa, multiple entry visa and finally, your Alien Resident
Certificate. We help explain Taiwanese taxes. We are here for you on an on-going basis
regarding these matters.
Lastly we try to connect you
with and support the great foreigner community in Southern Taiwan. We provide every
teacher with an "Around Kaohsiung" magazine, and "Rickshaw" magazine.
We also give you an English map to orient yourselves during our basic tour of
Kaohsiung. We also subscribe you to our mailing list of local private and part time jobs.
We provide all our services at no cost to the teacher. We charge a one
time fee to the school you choose to sign with, which they are happy to pay, as the
teaching quality of a comfortable, happy teacher with lots of support is better than one
who is spending most of their time worrying about necessities. We do the leg work so
you can focus on your classes.
