Hi, I'm Luke (and that's my son, Asa). I created allTEFL to provide TEFL teachers an honest place to find salary information, school reviews, recruiter reviews, and job openings.
I started my teaching career in Changchun, China. I fell in love with teaching and went back to university to get a degree in TESOL, and then went on to get a master's in English Language Teaching. Since then I've taught for another seven years, in Korea, China, and the US.
When I started teaching in China I thought it was crazy that there were no good sites for school reviews. I want allTEFL to be a source of useful information that helps TEFL teachers find great jobs with great salaries.
I think English teaching is both a fun way to make a living and a great career. It's unfortunate that reliable information about TEFL schools and employers can be hard to find, which is why I started this site.
My first site, ForeignTeacherPay, collected anonymous salary information from English teachers in China. The site was very basic (teachers filled out a form and I manually input the data into a big table). It was useful, I hope, but not great. I never was able to figure out a good way for teachers to be able to review schools…so I taught myself just enough programming so I could create allTEFL.
I hope allTEFL will develop into the resource that I wish I had when I was looking at job offers abroad. Of course, for this to happen, I need your honest reviews of schools and recruiters.
I take your privacy very seriously. This site will never sell your personal information and does not use any third party services that collect & sell user information.
Thanks for taking a look, and I look forward to reading your reviews!
