Competitive value, convenience, and quality

10/10

I started looking for online TESOL certifications when I realized I didn't have time to take off from my job teaching English in Korea to get a CELTA. After thoroughly researching all the options, I decided to enroll in Ontesol's 250 hour Diploma + Practicum, and I am so glad I did! Having the freedom to complete the program concurrent with my teaching schedule was so convenient and helpful. Even though the program is rigorous, Ontesol's curriculum is well-organized and digestible, and the tutors are extremely helpful. Emails were always answered in a timely matter, and my questions were always thoroughly explained. My husband got his MA in TESOL when I was completing Ontesol's program and I noticed a lot of overlap in the material both programs covered, so when the website says the 250 hour certification goes beyond CELTA level, it is definitely true. I learned so much during my 7 months completing the course that I decided to continue on and obtain the 20 hour Practicum. Ontesol was very helpful in working with me to find a qualified supervisor so I could complete the practicum while teaching my regular classes here in Korea. Not only does my Ontesol TESOL Diploma make me a more qualified teacher for jobs overseas, but because Ontesol is recognized by TESL Canada, I am one step closer to becoming a certified Canadian ESL teacher which will help my employment opportunities when I do decide to return to North America eventually.

I really cannot recommend the Ontesol program enough for its high quality, convenience and great overall value. It is a great investment for any ESL instructor, regardless of location or prior qualifications. Thanks!

I Did The TESOL Certificate and Practicum

10/10

I completed the TESOL certificate and the Practicum with OnTESOL in Toronto. I am very happy with the quality of the course and the support I received from both my tutors. It was an intensive course and it took me about 2 months to do the whole thing. The online portion was very useful because it prepared me for the lesson plans I had to do during the Practicum portion. I had to take the Practicum to get TESL Canada accreditation and I would really recommend it to anyone who is considering starting a career because the feedback from the teacher trainer is very valuable. It really helps if you are a new teacher!

How can this program be improved?

The course had about 12 videos and 3 of them are full ESL lessons. These videos helped a lot to see how a lesson plan becomes an ESL class because they are integrated with the assignments. I would recommend producing more of these videos!

120 hour TEFL and TEYL

8/10

This was a helpful course with knowledgable and helpful tutors. The first few units were a little easy, in my opinion, but the later ones were a bit more challenging and contained some useful content about lesson frameworks in particular. I've already begun testing out some of the ideas from the course on my own students and think that having done this course has made my own teaching better. Thanks again!

How can this program be improved?

I found some of the content at the beginning of the course a bit easy and not so helpful - the later content was much better, particularly the TEYL module. I would have preferred more rigorous content about understanding how people learn and some content about classroom control or other common problems teachers may encounter.

Great course and support!

10/10

OnTESOL is an outstanding institute that greatly prepared me to be in the classroom. Throughout each module, explanations of concepts were clear and thorough. I loved taking the course at my own pace which allowed me to absorb the information thoroughly. Assignments were structured in a way that challenged me to think about what I would actually do if I were in a classroom, making the learning experience all that more experiential.

OnTESOL’s assignments prepared me to be observant, analytical and organized for my practicum. I noticed how students’ different learning styles impact the way I teach. The lesson planning was perfect because it gave me a sense of how much time I will need to prepare and what details to look out for when preparing. My tutor’s support was so helpful as he provided me with his own personal perspective on teaching and how he structures his classroom. I was amazed at the support I received to get a job in Toronto. OnTESOL matched me and set up interviews with four different institutes in the city!

Worth it!

10/10

After my first year teaching, I managed to land a job in the very best school in my town. I was under a lot of pressure as I would go from working in a small laid-back academy to a top school with much higher standards. I felt ill-equiped so I decided to train during the summer. After careful research, I chose OnTESOL.
I was happy with every aspect of the course. The curriculum was well balanced, very detailed and, most importantly, interesting! My personal tutor was attentive and helpful. I learned so much from this course that I can safely say it is the one reason I ended up being so successful in my new job.
