    I am asking because both of these companys/schools use the same recruiter who is pressuring me to make a decision between these two locations and sign the most vague contract I have ever seen. Both companies/schools have been around forever, but I am worried about the fact that they both use over a dozen email addresses and generic web sites to advertise. And the the handful of ads that do make reference to their school/company use different variations of their name.

    For example, Yuming, Yu Ming, Yu Ming Education, Ming Education, The Ming Group, Ming Education Group, etc.

    Same thing with Helen who uses China TEFL Group, China TEFL Institute, China TEFL, and Hangzhou TEFL Academy.

    So can anyone tell me the truth about these schools companies? I can’t understand why they would have the same agent Michelle Wang when one school is in Hangzhou and the other is in Tianjin???

    We think companies that have to market under various names should be avoided. BTW… both of these schools/companies have been blacklisted by various teachers on three different blacklists. You need to learn how to use Google and do some basic homework friend.

    Helen has wisened up and is now operating under various names including Teach-In-China.net. There are some other names listed at the China Liars List at Scam.com. https://www.scam.com/showthread.php?704467-UPDATED-China-Liars-List-ESL-TEFL-Teacher-Job-Scams-Internships-Exporters-etc-BLACKLIST
