Our mission is to help anyone teach English with confidence.


ESL Authority was started to serve as a resource for anyone interested in or currently teaching English abroad.  As a former teacher, I know how hard it can be to find reliable information and have spent hours combing through sites, blogs, and job boards.

When I started designing ESL Authority my main goal was simple – to make it user-friendly.  I was tired of looking at sites that were difficult to navigate and overrun with ads.  With this in mind, I set out to make a site that was above all informative, but also functional and relevant.

I hope you enjoy it.

Our promises to you:

Minimal Ads

At this point, we need the little money we make with ads to help keep the lights on, but I promise it will never become overpowering or distract from the content.  And no popups – ever.

Current Information

We love talking to teachers and think they are the best source of information for new and current teachers.  That won’t change and you can expect a lot of our tips and advice to come from a teacher’s perspective.

Open Communication

If you need help and can’t find the answer, just ask.  And feel free to let us know if there’s something you want us to write about –  we respond to all emails, seriously.
