TEFL Online Pro has issued a refutation to the allegations made by our business competitors, on the teflonlinepro.com school website:
TEFL Online Pro (https://teflonlinepro.com/) established this tefl-online-pro-reviews.com blog so as to have a platform where we would be able to respond to attacks made by online competitors.
TEFL Online Pro is a legitimate company, providing award-winning and fully accredited Online TEFL/TESOL certification courses training.
We receive consistently positive (verified) customer feedback, and this is in part because of our commitment to maintaining a high level of customer services.
Our course graduates teach English online and teach English overseas, in every country worldwide where English is taught as a second or foreign language, and typically start their teaching jobs within four weeks of course completion.
As of July 24th 2021, 100% of our graduates that have taken one of our courses and that have then wanted to teach (online or overseas) have been successful in their job-search objectives.
All three of the international certification courses provided by our company come with lifetime job support services, included in the price of the course.
In addition to all of the above, TEFL Online Pro is a verified business member with Paypal and has been since 2019.
TEFL Online Pro has many competitors within the Online TEFL/TESOL training marketplace.
The majority of our competitors are similarly held accountable through their accreditation affiliations, but a few of our competitors are not bound by the Codes Of Practice associated with Fully Accredited status – i.e., some of our business competitors offer unaccredited TEFL courses and can operate without any oversight from an external moderation board.
This article has been written as an official rebuttal to the defamatory, malicious, and untrue statements published online about TEFL Online Pro – statements published by two of our business competitors: Ian Patrick Leahy/ESLinsider and MyTEFL.
ESLinsider and MyTEFL provide Online TEFL/TESOL certification courses, and both of these providers are business competitors of TEFL Online Pro.
Both providers offer unaccredited courses. They are not, therefore, accountable to an external accreditation body – meaning that they can act with impunity with regards to how they treat their customers and how they treat their business competition.
TEFL Online Pro is fully accredited by ACTEFLC – Accreditation Council for Teaching English as a Foreign Language Courses.
teflonlinepro.com, as a provider of international Online TEFL/TESOL certification courses, has many competitors within the marketplace, but ESLinsider and MyTEFL can be singled out from the crowd for their disreputable business practices.
This article looks at the Google Search results for ‘TEFL Online Pro reviews’ and identifies the real TEFL Online Pro reviews versus the online attacks carried out by ESLinsider and MyTEFL.
We would also like to point out at this stage in the article that TEFL Online Pro is in no way a unique case when it comes to the online attacks instigated by the above mentioned TEFL programs.
TEFL Online Pro first became the focus of malicious online defamation soon after we won the prestigious Teachers’ Choice Award for the first time, in 2019.
The online defamation against TEFL Online Pro began with online attacks instigated by Ian Patrick Leahy from ESLinsider TEFL, followed by online attacks perpetuated by MyTEFL.
At TEFL Online Pro we place significant importance on transparency – we have nothing to hide – and we will now look at the (USA) Google Search results for ‘TEFL Online Pro reviews’.
‘TEFL Online Pro reviews’ Google Search results.
Currently, as of 20th July 2021, these are the ‘TEFL Online Pro reviews’ USA first-page Google Search results:
Analysis of the above nine search results.

A review published on the independent Online TEFL/TESOL certification course reviews website – Trusted TEFL Reviews. In this review, one of our customers has answered the question as to whether TEFL Online Pro is Legit: https://trustedteflreviews.com/2020/05/07/is-tefl-online-pro-legit/
tefl-online-pro-reviews.com is a website that we created in order to have a space online where we could defend ourselves against such baseless online competitor attacks: https://tefl-online-pro-reviews.com
Both programs are notorious within the TEFL industry for launching attacks on their business competitors.
We are now going to strip down to the bone these competitors’ search results.
ESLinsider / Ian Patrick Leahy.
We have written extensively about Ian Patrick Leahy already on this website:
Therefore, we don’t wish to repeat what we have already stated with regards to Ian Patrick Leahy, his documented crimes, his documented defamation, his unaccredited TEFL/TEKA certification course, and how Ian Leahy has pretty much written trash online about all of his business competitors.
Trusted TEFL Reviews has also exposed this individual for what he really represents:
What we are going to do, though, is simply show you the individual behind ESLinsider:
Ian Patrick Leahy represents everything wrong with the Online TEFL/TESOL industry.
ESLinsider is a one man show, unaccredited, operated by an individual with far too much free time on his hands, who spams the internet with misleading information about his business competition in the hopes that he can convince some people to instead take his TEFL/TEKA course.
A few years ago, Ian was giving out the poor advice that people could teach English in China without the need for having a college degree. Ian actually recommended that instead, people could just buy a fake degree online and use that. As a result, some people took his TEFL/TEKA course, and his advice about using a fake college degree, and were promptly arrested and then deported by the Chinese authorities.
As a result, the ESLinsider TEFL/TEKA certificate is worthless in the largest ESL teacher’s market in the world.
We are 100% certain that Ian Leahy will continue to market his ESLinsider TEFL/TEKA course to unsuspecting newbies, and that he will continue to publish defamatory material online about his business competition.
Legal action against Ian Patrick Leahy from ESLinsider.
We began by issuing a Cease and Desist formal notice to Ian (via our company email address) and a copy of this was published as a private message to Ian, on his YouTube channel. When Ian responded as though he could write whatever he wanted to, without accountability, we contacted YouTube and requested that the video be blocked in Japan – Ian’s current home country at the time, before he moved back home to Monroe, New Hampshire.
It is very difficult to proceed with legal action against Ian Patrick Leahy because he resides in Monroe, New Hampshire. New Hampshire has the most liberal free-speech laws in the United States – meaning that Ian has a carte blanche to write and publish absolutely anything online that he feels the urge to.
Another obstacle to this process is that ESLinsider is not a registered company. ESLinsider is just a website that Ian Patrick Leahy established.
We are, however, in talks with other Online TEFL/TESOL course providers that have also fallen victim to Ian’s online defamatory attacks and we are all currently pooling our resources together in order to follow a litigation path, whereby we can try to prevent Ian Patrick Leahy from continuing with his Online TEFL/TEKA course scam.
Our research has also shown that Ian Patrick Leahy has likely not paid any taxes to the IRS on any of the revenue earned from his ESLinsider TEFL/TEKA business activities.
MyTEFL is another unaccredited TEFL course provider that has a poor online reputation.
We fully believe that they believe that they are “accredited” by both of those websites.
The only issue is that both of those accreditation websites are fake.
OTTSA was created by a former building contractor from the UK, Simon Godwin, who is an English teacher in Thailand, and who is allegedly employed by MyTEFL: https://www.newsshopper.co.uk/news/560086.tourists-urged-to-return/
And it doesn’t take half a brain to realise that the ITEFLAC website was hastily put together by someone who has little interest in “quality assurance”. The website looks totally fake.
MyTEFL is known for creating attack websites on their business competition – just as they have done so against TEFL Online Pro – and they have been accused of lying about their charity project contributions in order to win new clients.
Trusted TEFL Reviews has also exposed MyTEFL for their bad business practices:
If you are reading this article, after having purchased a MyTEFL course, our advice for you is to avoid their job placement services.
There are many complaints online about MyTEFL placing teachers in jobs (mainly in Thailand) where the teachers are provided with poor housing conditions and where they are expected to teach 40+ hour per week and all for a pittance of a monthly salary. MyTEFL cream off 40-50% of that monthly salary for themselves.
Ian Patrick Leahy (ESLinsider) has also been accused of perpetrating this extremely poor business practice – the extortion of their TEFL graduates, via creaming off a percentage of their teachers’ salaries.
Legal action against MyTEFL.
Whilst MyTEFL claims to be based out of Vancouver, Canada, their company is actually based in Thailand – where OTTSA is also coincidentally based. It is very difficult to proceed with defamation litigation proceedings against this company.
We have, however, issued a complaint to the Better Business Bureau in Canada, where MyTEFL claims to be a registered business.

ESLinsider and MyTEFL have chosen to attack TEFL Online Pro because we offer a better-rated product, better-rated customer services, and as a result, students have been choosing our Online TEFL/TESOL certification program as an alternative to the poorly-rated programs offered by ESLinsider and MyTEFL.
When wanting to search out real TEFL Online Pro student feedback, we definitely recommend taking the content published by our business competitors with a healthy pinch of salt.
If we were looking to purchase a product or service, we would place ultimate important and gravitas on the verified feedback of the customers of that product/service.
Not all Online TEFL/TESOL course providers are disreputable, but ESLinsider and MyTEFL are most certainly the worst of the unaccredited bunch and should be avoided at all costs.

Some words from one of our recent graduates.
One of our August 2020 graduates – Noor – recently recorded a follow-up video testimonial review, where she shares how her TEFL Online Pro certificate was instrumental in securing online teaching English work, and how her certification has been one of the essential documents required for successfully being accepted for a teaching position in South Korea – a teaching position within the prestigious South Korean university ESL system.
Here is Noor’s TEFL Online Pro video review:
Thank you for reading this ‘TEFL Online Pro versus ESLinsider and MyTEFL’ article.
