My name is Alysha and I started my search for a position in Korean in early 2015. With friends having taught in Korea in the past, I was highly encouraged to contact Ellie at Education Adventure.
I did so, and within a couple of days, I knew I had made the right decision. Ellie asked me what my priorities were in terms of my job search, and made sure that these were met with every potential contract sent my way. Ellie was quick to reply to e-mails, and also made herself available to answer any questions or concerns within a very timely manner.
When I had almost decided on a school, I had expressed my concerns with Ellie: although I felt great about the interview, and had a gut feeling that the right decision was to accept the position, I found it difficult to find information regarding that specific campus on the Internet. Very understanding, Ellie contacted the school director for further explanation, and helped me understand that it was a new campus in a new and growing city. She put me in contact with current teachers from that site. During the whole process, Ellie was very understanding of all questions and concerned, and never made me feel as though I had to make a quick decision.
My time in Korea was fantastic. I reached out to Ellie a couple of times during my time in Korea, and, as always, she was quick to answer me with helpful information. Even upon my return, I have been in contact with Ellie and, without a doubt, she has always come through.
I would, without hesitation, encourage anyone considering teaching in Korea, to do so with the help of Ellie.
