Welcome to ESL Teacher Recruiter. My name is Sarah Fauset. Check out the photo of me teaching English in Korea at the top of the website. I spent three amazing years teaching English in Korea. I had only planned on teaching in Korea for one year but I ended staying for 3 years. Upon returning home from teaching in Korea, I wanted to give other graduates the opportunity to pay off their students loans and travel. I partnered with the most prestigious private schools across Korea and have since placed hundreds of university graduates in amazing teaching jobs in Korea.
