Why I Shop at Teachers House

At Teachers House, we spend a lot of time talking to you, our customers, everyday. And, daily, we hear the same remark “But I can buy it on Taobao for less!”

For most of the products we list on the website, that’s a true statement. So why would you buy from us when you can get it cheaper elsewhere? Here’s why I buy from Teachers House.


Imagine being a new teacher, hopping into Taobao and asking for advice on which resources you should use for a class of 2 year olds with 12 students in the class where you need to cover speaking, art, music and STEAM. At Teachers House, you receive honest advice from experienced teachers who have tested every single product on the website. We know what will work and what won’t.

Classroom Tested

Every single product, book, textbook or game that is on our website has been personally tested by one of the Teachers House team in an actual classroom.


I know when I open that box from Teachers House that my order is going to be correct, exactly what I need and, most importantly, exactly what I expected. These pictures are comparisons of the same textbook, one bought from Taobao and one from Teachers House.

Network Support

Before I came part of the Teachers House team, I was (and still am) an active member of the larger network. The network is where I learnt how to be a better teacher, it’s where I came for advice, where I came when I had no idea what to try next. It’s where I was supported, encouraged, cheered on and grew, not only as a teacher, but as a person.

For me, that alone is worth paying a few RMB more.
