How we can help you?
We’ll help you find a job!
Hi, I’m Jordan! In 2014 I completed a TEFL course with i-to-i and then travelled overseas to teach English. I had the experience of a lifetime and coming back to the UK, I decided to join this wonderful organisation. I now work within the job seeker support team here at i-to-i and I am here to help you find that TEFL job.
TEFL Experience: I have taught in Japan, Taiwan but spent the most amount of time in Vietnam.
What motivates you? TEFL has so many rewards. If you are overseas, you might be seeing things that you had only dreamed about. You could be changing someone’s life, as well as your own. And if you are teaching online, you might be creating a lifestyle that fits who you are and helping someone achieve their own goals too. I loved every aspect of TEFL and to be able to help others experience the same, this is what motivates me.
What does your role involve? If you are new to finding work in the TEFL market or you need some help, we are offering you a hand. This team offers bespoke guidance and support to search for new opportunities, overcome employment challenges and grant you access to a jobs board with a huge array of opportunities.
What do you do when you aren’t working? Lockdown in the UK has limited what we can and can’t do but being at home with my fiancé and two cats hasn’t been terrible. We read, go for walks and I’ve been known to whittle wood in my spare time. As soon as things return to normal we would love to travel again.
Hey! I’m Emily, and I live in Leeds, UK. I’ve lived and worked in 5 different countries, and the first time I taught English was in Nicaragua, Central America. My experience ranges from teaching English to very young learners through to holding academic writing lectures for MSc students. When I’m not working, I like to go on adventures to new places, practise speaking Spanish, and I’m also a keen plane spotter!
TEFL Advice to students: Enjoy the experience! You’ve stepped into the world of TEFL, and you’re about to make many exciting memories. Throughout your TEFL career, you might not always get things right the first time; however, that’s usually the best way to learn. Have fun, be open to advice, and never be afraid to challenge yourself!
Greatest TEFL Achievement: Challenging a class of 3-year olds to produce full sentences rather than just one-word answers. It was exhilarating to see them understand my question and then provide a full response!
Hi, I’m Lisa Triani. I am a TEFL trainer and learning designer who lives on a farm in the hills of South Africa. I work with individuals and teams around the world: from education and cultural diversity projects to music and the creative arts. I trained as a TEFL teacher in Italy in 2002 and taught for many years around the world before returning home to South Africa, where I moved into the fields of training, E-learning and team coaching. In my spare time I like to sing, write and hug trees!
Teaching experience: 18 Years
Where have you taught: Almost everywhere imaginable!
Teaching specialties: Teaching adults, training teachers, business English, language coaching = helping students to set and meet goals, one to ones.
How would your students describe you? Dynamic, motivating, fun, caring
What motivates you? I have a passion for supporting people through change. Assisting people in learning new skills and putting them into practice to change their lives for the better is one of the most rewarding parts of the work I do. I also love learning about other cultures and ways of doing things. Working remotely means being able to connect with people from all over the world, whilst maintaining the off-grid lifestyle I love here in South Africa.
