About Johbella Recruiters

Johbella Recruiters is a company that provides professional services to the foreign as well as Chinese community in China and the world.

Welcome to  Johbella Recruiters.  On this website, I would like to target teachers or would-be teachers who have a desire to teach English or other subjects in China.  I want to assist them on their journey to become qualified and also help with the process of them finding a job in China. 

My Story

What do I have to offer?   I have been an English, Science, and Drama teacher in Taiwan and China for the last 20 + years.  I also became a teacher trainer, a senior teacher during this time.  I am originally from South Africa and I left to pursue my teaching career without any knowledge of Taiwan in 2001. I had no idea what to expect.  I am one for adventure and I am a positive person in life.

I have experience teaching online English, small children from the age of 3 to adult as well as Business English.  I believe I am a born teacher.  I like to help people to improve their lives.

I have experienced many situations and I can honestly say that I have not had a bad situation happen to me during my 20 years.  Through these experiences, I can help teachers to avoid certain situations, schools, places in Taiwan and China.

I would like to share and help teachers who want to venture on this journey.


Leaving your country to go abroad can be a scary and unknown situation.  You lack the knowledge of the country and you also don’t know what to expect and what to avoid.  As I said before: I want to help teachers to transition from inexperienced to experienced. That can mean work as well as life.

THE GOAL OF Johbella Recruiters.

I would like to make this the one-stop shop for teachers who would like to teach English abroad.  They always ask many questions:

  1. What do I need to be able to teach English abroad?
  2. Where can I get an accredited TEFL course?
  3. How much does it cost?
  4. Where can I do the practical part of my TEFL Course?
  5. Where can I get my TEFL course authorized?
  6. Are there any jobs available in China?
  7. Providing services to teachers to find a dream job in China. 

I would like to provide some valuable resources and games to help the teacher not only in their job process but also in the classroom.  Teachers need to be educated on what to do in the classroom. Being a teacher involves a lot of aspects.  I would like to see this website becoming a well-known name in teaching circles.

All the best,
