About Us

The Company

We are a TEFL recruiting company that connects native English speakers with high-end English schools in China.

So just what exactly separates us from the masses of other headhunters out there? There’s a couple big differences:

  1. We’ve got high standards for the companies we partner with and we only work with the best. We personally visit the schools, talk to current teachers, and ensure that our standards are met.

  2. We are an American company that has representatives in the US as well as China. English is our native tongue and you’re not going to need Google translate to get through your interview with us!

The People

Joe
Joe 周末 | CEO (Chief Everything Officer)

Joe serves as the main point of communication here at Great Wall TEFL. Chances are that he will be on the other side of the witty, yet informative emails you’ll receive, as well as on the other side of the screen for those tie-is-a-plus-but-pants-are-optional Skype interviews that we all know and love.

Joe is an American from New York (the state not the the city). He first came to China way back in 2006, is fluent in Chinese, and has experience teaching, training, and managing in Chinese English schools.

Lydia
Lydia 丽娅 | CEEO (Chief Everything Else Officer)

Lydia keeps everything running smoothly on the Chinese side of things. Communicating with the English schools, keeping up with regulations, and keeping a steady hand on the administrative helm are just a few of the hats she wears on a daily basis.

Lydia is a Chinese native, born and raised in Fujian, China. A hit with kids and adults alike, whether it’s in the classroom or the boardroom, she runs a pretty tight ship!
