Placement Team

The Placement Team works together to find our participants the best possible teaching jobs in Thailand. We meet with our teachers during their TESOL course to get to know them and their preferences, and work with agents and schools to find available positions. The Placement Team is full of colorful personalities, and you can often hear them laughing in their office and singing 90’s pop hits while they work hard to give participants the best possible experience.

With the awesome staff of the Programs Department the XA ship is already on a straight course to Successful TESOL Harbor. Jump aboard!

Education Team

XploreAsia’s education team is dedicated to providing exemplary teacher training, creating innovative new content and material, and facilitating cross cultural assimilation. Our dedication stems from our own experiences living and teaching abroad. Each member of XploreAsia’s education team has extensive experience teaching internationally. Our curriculum is not only based upon years of research on language acquisition, and varied linguistic philosophies, but also on cultural connection, and real life experiences teaching in the field. We know the hurdles and rewards that come with teaching in another country, and we are dedicated to helping others achieve the same life-changing experiences that we have had.
