Reviews from Current and Previous ESL Teachers

I love my job so much and I love my students. They make me laugh every day and are just so adorable. I was working as a graphic designer before I worked here as an English teacher. Being a designer was what I originally wanted, but right now, working with kids really triggers my passion. I am so grateful for this amazing teaching career. – Sam
