I’m delighted in knowing how much China by teaching has done for me. I have taught in China going on two years and if it wasn’t for China by teaching I would not be here today. There staff and support were there for me 24/7. Their dedicated staff was there for sending me the perfect job and gave me options and guidance about living in China. I highly recommend China by teaching to anyone thinking about moving to China. China by teaching all the way!


I have worked as an ESL teacher in several countries around the world and used a number of different recruiting agencies. In my experience China by teaching are by far the most professional and dedicated group that I have used. They cater for individuals needs and found me the exact job I was hoping for. Teaching in Beijing has been a great adventure and if it wasn’t for the support of China by teaching the hiring process would have been a lot more difficult. I’d highly recommend them to friends interested in moving to China.
