I decided to get my TESOL certificate after teaching English for a couple of years to help with finding a new job. As I am still presently working, I was not able to afford enough time to go to a brick and mortar school to get my certificate.
When I was looking for an online provider for my TESOL certificate, there were hundreds of companies and schools which offered courses and even a few that offered a certificate just by paying a lower one time fee. I wanted to find an online school that was reputable and had high standards for their students. I spent weeks doing research on online TESOL schools. Time after time and day after day, my searching started to keep leading back to OnTesol.
They were very helpful and prompt with questions that I had about their programme before I had committed to it. My instructor was great. I feel very lucky and fortunate to have had an instructor who was so helpful, patient, and kind. She was very professional, and always responded to my questions and assignments well under the time frame that was promised by the school’s policy. She even answered back on the weekend a couple of times, even though it was not her “office hours” time, and was not required to do so.
The TESOL course itself was challenging and informative. I’ve been teaching for a few years now, and I hadn’t realized how much I didn’t know about the English language. The course materials were fantastic and very readable and well organized. The testing and assignments were also very well organized and provided a seamless transition from one topic to the next, always integrating and building upon the previous chapter.
Overall, I am more than happy to recommend OnTesol to anyone who is interested in teaching English who is in need of a certificate. It had definitely made me a better teacher in both knowledge of the language and how to better present it in the classroom.
