Testimonials

Sophie (UK) Hong Kong Primary School Placement

I only have positive things to say about the company so far. From my initial meeting to go through my CV, discuss what I was looking for and what they recommended, Eureka have been great. I initially went into the meeting unsure of what kind of teaching I wanted to go into and unsure of what would be involved. Wendy was brilliant at going through my options and explaining the whole process from interview, to different types of placements, to expectations etc. They passed on my information to prospective schools and organised an interview within days. They asked me to come to the office beforehand to provide interview help, advice and answer any queries I had. Veronica came to the school with me as a Eureka representative, which I was incredibly grateful for as it was my first visit to a school and I'd only been in the country for a few days. During the placement I have had two observations by Eureka - both times looking at classes of different age groups to get a thorough overview. I have found both of these incredibly helpful as Veronica was able to give me specific goals and targets for the remainder of the year and provide information and advice as to the best way to achieve these. I also found it useful that she was able to see first hand some of the issues and difficulties that I was having with certain classes or students, and therefore was able to give me specific advice rather than generic information. 
In addition, Eureka also offer teacher training courses throughout the year on a regular basis, covering topics such as classroom management, different approaches to teaching and teaching students with learning difficulties. These are a good opportunity to gain further understanding and meet other teachers in Hong Kong. There are also social activities during the year including Christmas parties and hikes.I find that Eureka are always available if I have any issues or concerns, and I think that they really value their teachers. There are many opportunities to improve and if any issues or situations arise, there is always support available. I have heard lots of horror stories about other companies, and interviewed with a few, but I felt that Eureka were by far the best company that I came across.
