International TEFL Academy Alumni Discuss Finances & Teaching English Abroad
"I teach 20 hours a week, but I am required to be at my school 40 hours a week, Monday - Friday. I make $ 1,200 USD a month and I am able to save half of it." - Sarah Ballhaussen
"I am working about 25 hours a week for an average of 15 Euros/hour. I am saving, but not much. After expenses, my money goes to weekend excursions and traveling." - Jennifer Howland
"My pay was great! (My pay was bumped up because I had my TEFL certificate) I was able to save appx. $12,000 USD before leaving South Korea. And that excludes all of my traveling I did in and around Asia." - Jessica Montgomery
