About us

Our Mission

TEFL Associates started with one simple goal – to become the leading recruitment agency for teaching English online.

We want to help current and potential teachers find their perfect job by providing expert, trustworthy information on all matters related to Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL).

In addition to this, we assist online schools by helping them find the right teachers for their students.

Adam Palmer

Meet the Founder

My name is Adam Palmer, and I am a TEFL teacher with almost 5 years experience teaching English online and abroad. Prior to teaching I worked as a recruitment consultant where I successfully helped hundreds of candidates find their ideal jobs.

Several years ago I started teaching online and noticed that the industry was booming. It was clear to me that I could help recruit teachers, which led to me setting up TEFL Associates in 2018 to help both teachers and schools find their perfect match.

Honest and transparent

Our Editorial Standards

With the rise of numerous online TEFL companies and lack of reliable information online, it is important for teachers to research their options effectively and for schools to find the right candidates.

All the content you find on this website has been sourced, written, and edited directly by ourselves to guarantee the highest possible levels of accuracy and transparency. 

Where possible, each review or informational article we publish involves both personal experience and opinions of other teachers in order to identify patterns between people’s experiences.
