Why choose tefl online pro?

This article takes a look at 12 reasons why you should choose tefl online pro for your international TEFL/TESOL certification course training.

  1. Excellent student feedback.

We always place the customer first and our customers appreciate this high level of personal service. This can be seen by our consistently positive customer feedback.

Two excellent sources for tefl online pro reviews are our company Facebook page, and Trusted TEFL Reviews – the independently-run Online TEFL/TESOL reviews website:

2. Our payment options are safe and secure.

It was recently brought to our attention that one of our competitors requests their customers to make their course payments through the Western Union money transfer service. This is also the preferred payment method for online scammers.

When making your course payment through the tefl online pro website, you have the option of making your purchase via Paypal, or with your debit or credit card.

This is one of the safest methods for making a payment over the internet – your information is safe and your consumer rights are guaranteed.

3. We always respond to emails/messages/calls within 24 hours.

Whether you are a potential customer asking for further course information, a current customer working their way through the course, or a tefl online pro graduate requesting international job support, we always respond to emails/messages/calls within 24 hours.

We feel that it is important to be quick with replies – especially regarding current students of the program, who often have an urgent course question needed answering before they can continue on to the next section of the course.

4. Feedback on lesson plan assignments and answers to course questions are responded to by a real person.

One of the common complaints that we see online, from people who have chosen to take their TEFL certification course with a different provider, is that (besides having to wait days for a response to an email sent) coursework feedback is often automated and severely lacking in substance.

tefl online pro customers can make use of the internal messaging system, contained within their personal course study account, and this acts as an instant messaging system. This isn’t an automated bot system – there is always a real person available to respond to messages with the relevant, detailed information which is required.

This personal touch is also replicated with the lesson plan feedback from your online tutor, you will receive after submitting each of the lesson plans that are mandatory assignments within the course.

5. All three of our award-winning courses come with complimentary (24/7) online tutor support.

Not all Online TEFL/TESOL certification course programs include the online tutor feature, and those which do tend to charge extra for this service.

When you enroll in any one of our award-winning international TEFL/TESOL certification courses, you will gain automatic access to a personal online tutor, who will be there to answer any questions that you might have.

tefl online pro personal tutor services are available 24/7 – excluding Sundays and bank holidays.

Hey, we have to rest sometimes! šŸ™‚

6. All three of our award-winning courses have been designed by experts in their fields.

tefl online pro run three internationally recognized TEFL/TESOL certification courses:

60-Hour Fast-Track

120-Hour Professional

140-Hour Hybrid

All three courses have been designed by respected academics within the international TEFL/TESOL community. In addition, the minimum qualification required to become a tefl online pro online tutor is a Master’s degree in Education.

7. All three of our award-winning, user-friendly courses are fully responsive ā€“ study on a laptop, phone, or tablet.

Some Online TEFL/TESOL program platforms were designed over ten years ago, and in light of today’s technology are considered to be dinosaurs. This is especially an issue if you are on the go and want to complete your course on your tablet or phone.

The tefl online pro website and course study areas for all three courses are fully responsive – meaning that it is as convenient to study your course on a tablet or phone, as it is on a laptop or home computer.

This is a really important feature because we have read in some online TEFL/TESOL forums of students from other programs not being able to properly read course materials because the course has not been designed for anything other than laptop functionality.

8. There are no hidden fees ā€“ the advertised course fee is the only payment that you will be requested to make.

You see a great course price, you purchase the course, you work your way though the course. And then, at the end, when everything is complete, you receive a nasty surprise – your school issues you with a $100 – $200 invoice for the certification processing fee.

Unfortunately, this is common practice among some of the other well-known Online TEFL/TESOL certification course providers – it is a nickel and dime/ switch and bait tactic at the end, when you are placed in a corner and when most people just pay the fee so they can receive their certification.

We don’t do this.

If, as an example, you enroll in the tefl online pro 120-Hour Professional international TEFL/TESOL certification course and you have been quoted a full course fee of US$299, this is the only payment that you will need to make.

You will never be asked to make any further payments. Period.

We don’t charge hidden fees. What you see, is what you get.

9. All of our customers receive an Official Letter of Recommendation upon course completion.

When you have completed your course studies, we issue you with an Official Letter of Recommendation that really makes a difference in job interviews.

To date, we have a 100% success rate in helping our course graduates find teaching work – overseas, or online – and the recommendation letter definitely contributes to this very impressive statistic.

At any time during your teaching English career, if a school employer requests further recommendations then we provide these and make you out to be a superhuman English teacher. Well, after taking one of our TEFL/TESOL courses, you will be a superhuman English teacher šŸ™‚

10. We issue course certificates within a couple of days of course completion.

We often read online how graduates of some other Online TEFL courses have had to wait weeks, even months, for their international TEFL/TESOL certificate to finally make an appearance.

This, in our opinion, is bad style and very poor customer service.

If you completed your course say on a Wednesday, we would ensure that your Official Letter of Recommendation and international TEFL/TESOL certificate are issued to you by the Friday of that same week.

11. Graduates of the program enjoy lifetime access to the tefl online pro International Job Guidance Team.

What is the main reason why people take international TEFL/TESOL certification courses?

It’s to get a teaching job afterwards!

All tefl online pro graduates receive automatic access to the tefl online pro International Job Guidance Team a couple of days after course completion, and with our vast knowledge and experience, we are here to guide you through the TEFL jobs minefield.

Oh, and we also help our graduates with polishing up their resumes/CV’s, so that you have a tailored resume/CV for the teaching English school you are applying to – for either teaching English online, or teaching English overseas.

12. The certification awarded is equivalent to the CELTA/Level 5 TEFL/TESOL qualification. The certification awarded is internationally recognized ā€“ our graduates teach English worldwide.

Both the 120-Hour Professional, and 140-Hour Hybrid courses are CELTA/Level5 equivalent qualifications; meaning that you can use your certification from tefl online pro worldwide, and for teaching English positions online too.

Our graduates teach pretty much everywhere where it is possible to teach English and we want to be a part of that journey with you too!

I hope that you enjoyed these 12 reasons for choosing tefl online pro!

Verified TESOL Course Testimonials.

Verified TESOL Course testimonials. This article looks at where our customer reviews are predominantly published, and the red-flag Online TEFL/TESOL review tactics of some of our competitors that should be taken with a generous pinch of salt.

To begin this article, it should be made clear that we welcome both positive and negative feedback of our services. Of course, it would be great if every review that we received was a five-star review. But life doesn’t work that way. You can’t please all of the customers, all of the time. And actually, a negative review is often a positive for us – negative reviews can possibly indicate to us where there is further room for improvement, so that we can develop as a company and develop in the delivery of our customer services.

We will start, with the review websites that we recognize as being trusted sources of TEFL/TESOL student and graduate feedback.

Facebook is an excellent platform, where potential customers can read verified reviews of TEFL Online Pro students and graduates.

One of the major benefits of Facebook reviews, is that you can read a review and then check the poster’s Facebook profile; seeing whether the reviewer has a Facebook history and, therefore, if it is a legitimate review. This is arguably the best medium with which to tell if a reviewer is a real person, who has actually taken a tefl online pro international TEFL/TESOL certification course.

Some examples of recent verified reviews posted on our company Facebook page, by students and graduates of the tefl online pro international TEFL/TESOL certification course program:

Verified tefl online pro reviews over on Facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/pg/teflonlinepro/reviews/

Trusted TEFL Reviews is a similarly excellent source of verified reviews of tefl online pro students and graduates.

According to Trusted TEFL Reviews, the owners of the website are a group of English teachers (based in Vienna, Europe) who set up the website in order to clean up the Online TEFL/TESOL reviews industry. It is a non profit website, so this avoids the grey area corruption that is prevalent in some of the other major Online TEFL/TESOL review websites.

Students and graduates of the tefl online pro international TEFL/TESOL certification program, who have left reviews on Trusted TEFL Reviews, have reported back to us that in order for their review to be published they had to prove course attendance – submitting a copy of their international TEFL/TESOL certificate.

Trusted TEFL Reviews also allows Online TEFL/TESOL schools to respond to reviews.

We also list some of the more recent tefl online pro reviews, published on Trusted TEFL Reviews, in the ‘TEFL Online Pro Reviews’ section of this website:

And now, we need to take a look at the dark underbelly of Online TEFL/TESOL reviews.

There are two main ways in which some Online TEFL/TESOL companies manipulate their company reviews, in order to present a far rosier picture than what is true in reality.

The first way in which some companies artificially increase their review ratings, is by writing the reviews themselves and publishing them on websites that lack a verified review process. Another option for these unscrupulous companies, is to pay people (people who most likely haven’t taken one of their courses) to write reviews for them. One way of telling if a company is involved in this tactic is if they receive a bunch of reviews all at the same time – such as ten in one day.

The second way is affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is a form of fake reviews corruption, and it is a big problem within the Online TEFL/TESOL industry. Some of the more popular Online TEFL/TESOL reviews websites work on this principle. They encourage Online TEFL/TESOL schools to add a listing on their website, and they then receive an affiliates fee when a sale has been made. The issue with these types of review websites is that they often delete negative reviews, because it is bad business for their affiliate marketing model.

Affiliate marketing is also prevalent among bloggers who finance their world travels by claiming that such and such a course was AMAZING, and then they cream off the affiliate income when new customers use their coupon code when purchasing a course. It just isn’t possible to be objective about a product when the incentive for a blogger is to market it for their own financial gain.

So next time you read what appears to be a five-star review, shouting the praises of an Online TEFL/TESOL certification program, try checking to see whether there is an ulterior motive hidden behind the seemingly innocent review.

One thing that you can be certain of is that all tefl online pro reviews, published on Facebook and Trusted TEFL Reviews, have been written by actual students and graduates of the tefl online pro international TEFL/TESOL certification program.

We never waste our time trying to plant student and graduate reviews on unverified review websites, and we make it a principle not to add our school listing to review website that work on the affiliate marketing business model.

We hope that you enjoyed this Verified TESOL Course Testimonials article!

Teach.

tefl online pro. Teach.


As an English speaker, born into one of the de facto native English nations (Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, United Kingdom, United States of America) there are very few barriers for you to freely teaching English around the planet, in the global locations where English tuition is sought after in high demand – which is pretty much anywhere in the world, with the exception of Antarctica.

But let’s all leave the Earth’s southernmost continent alone, even if a burgeoning TEFL industry were to be one day considered there too.

Such is the international demand for learning the English language, that non-native English speakers also experience little difficulty in securing English teaching positions overseas – as long as their English language level is at C1 or C2 semi-fluency/fluency level.

Of course, the native English speakers will have the pick of the jobs first, but there are so many opportunities that our non-native English speaking graduates also successfully interview for teaching English jobs worldwide.

Many people choose to teach English overseas as a Gap year, some choose it as a way of taking a few years “off” while they go explore the world, and there is a growing trend for Baby boomers, and people born into the Silent Generation and Generation X, to use their TEFL/TESOL credentials in order to be able to live overseas; often teaching under tamarind-tree shaded sunlight and spending a portion of their disposable income on coconut oil massages and coconut water health drinks.

And then, of course, there are the migrating humans, that spend the summer months back home and who then fly to a much warmer part of the world to teach English when the first flakes of winter snow arrive.

It isn’t all champagne and caviar though.

Teaching English can be an incredibly demanding job.

Students often have the superpower of zapping energy from you like crystalline Kryptonite. Your days might be long. You might nurture dark thoughts towards particular students, and one or two will inevitably be mirroring your exact same excursions of the mind.

But, overall, you will – in the vast majority of cases – complete that class semester that occasionally drove you nuts, and you will miss those moments in your life when you found yourself reaching out to other human beings and sharing your knowledge; to people whose future quality of life, very likely, partly depended on their attendance at your English classes.

So yes, as with any job there are pros and cons.

But regarding teaching English, who else do you know who can honestly state that they work a 4-day week and are then able to spend a long weekend off on an exotic island, such as (for example) Koh Rong in southern Cambodia?

If you are reading this and suddenly feel that ‘itchy feet’ syndrome of wanting to get the hell out of where you are living and traveling the world, you can! šŸ™‚

Or, if you would like to stay put for a while and earn money teaching English online, we have now also become experts in the field of helping to connect tefl online pro graduates with high-paying online teaching employment, through our meticulous researching of online language schools.

Earn.

tefl online pro. Earn.


No matter where you decide to teach English, you can be rest assured that you will always be guaranteed to earn an above average local salary.

In life, everything tends to be relative.

Please allow us to use the Big Mac Index as a variable of this relativity, to compare two teaching English locations: Switzerland and the Czech Republic.

In Switzerland, you can earn between US$30 to US$60 per hour teaching English. The average price of a Big Mac in Switzerland, according to the 2020 Big Mac Index, is US$6.71.

In the Czech Republic (Czechia) most teachers start off on a US$15 to US$20 hourly rate, although some diligent teachers, who hit the ground running at Vaclav Havel International Airport, have been known to earn up to US$50 per hour. But in realistic terms, starting out as an English teacher in the Czech Republic, the US$15 to US$20 hourly rate is a more helpful indicator for you. The average price of a Big Mac in the Czech Republic, according to the 2020 Big Mac Index, is US$3.76.

At this stage of the article, we want to sincerely apologize to our vegan and vegetarian customers and graduates. We decided to us the Big Mac Index simply because it’s just so useful in the measurement of purchasing power parity.

Explained in basic economics, if you choose to teach English in an expensive country, you will earn a higher salary and incur higher daily costs. If, however, you choose to teach English in an inexpensive country, you will earn a lower salary and incur lower daily costs.

We have tefl online pro graduates, for example, teaching English in Prague. They tend to work the same amount of hours per month. Most of them get by on a hedonistic lifestyle that some Czechs could only dream of aspiring. These teachers tend to spend their disposable income on lots of “me time” šŸ™‚ And why not? It’s an amazing city and there are lots of bars, restaurants, theatre performances, etc., to spend money on. Some teachers, however, are much more prudent with their salaries and use their saved income to travel to warmer destinations in the winter holidays and for backpacking adventures in the long summer holiday months. And some teachers religiously save whatever they earn, to help pay off their student loan, and to have money in the bank when they either return back home or head off on their next teaching English abroad adventure.

The alternative, of course, is to teach English (from home) online. Hourly wages vary tremendously, but tefl online pro has an excellent network of online language schools that pay between US$20 and US$35 per hour. Not so bad, considering you save money on transport and time and you have that precious, sought after, ideal lifestyle of making money online.

So wherever (or however) you choose to teach English, your ability to save money won’t necessarily depend on how much you earn. We have examples of tefl online pro graduates who have gone off to South Korea to teach, and who have then returned home and been able to afford to put down a deposit on a mortgage. We also have graduates who choose not to save at all. And then there are the graduates that combine the two, by leading an active social life and still managing to put aside a sizable chunk of their earnings each month.

Travel.

tefl online pro. Travel.


Jim Morrison, the iconic American Rock singer, wrote in the song, ‘The Soft Parade’ (whilst his insatiable libido presumably partook in a temporary sabbatical) that, “There’s only four ways to get unraveled. One is to sleep and the other is travel…”.

There can be no doubt that travel broadens the mind. Travel opens doors, removes window blinds, and allows you a glimpse of how other people lead their lives in different parts of the world.

And when you do have the opportunity to travel, which, btw, is only a recent phenomenon that our generation is the lucky lottery winner beneficiary of, you begin to understand that all of us share the same concerns, the same anxieties, the same needs, the same (or at least similar) dreams and hopes.

Unless you are a member of the One Percent club reading this, that owns and controls 34.4% of all net worth in the United States, you will be surprised at just how many things you have in common with people that you meet with around the world.

And teaching English is an incredible eye opener in terms of meeting students from all walks of life, and sharing your life experiences together.

We want to share with you five tips for traveling that have evolved for us over the years, when it comes to improving your quality of travel experience.

  1. Pack light. Unless you are on an expedition to climb the peak of Mount Everest, you really don’t need to take that 100 liter backpack. I always travel with a 30 Liter backpack. It has side pockets, zippy things that you can zip or click things onto, and, most importantly, I don’t need to leave it in a coach hold and hope it’s there when I reach my destination. Plus, of course, it’s light. Try and find one with a rain sheet attached because then you have an added layer of security from unwanted thieves, by stretching it over your pack and hiding the entry points of your backpack.
  2. Sign up with an Air Miles club. It’s unlikely that you will only take one flight in your life and when you rack up a significant number of air miles, you can then upgrade for that Business Class seat that you sometimes casually ask for an upgrade to in the Economy passenger line, but are inevitably always denied.
  3. Go with your gut. My experience of travel is that most people are decent, hard-working folk. But there are a few bad apples out there. The eyes, whether kind-looking or hateful, usually give a person’s personality and intentions away. Never accept gifts from strangers (drinks, food, etc.) and if you do find yourself in a situation where your gut instinct is telling you to get the hell out of there, get the hell out of there.
  4. Respect the local culture and familiarize yourself with local laws. In Thailand, for example, it’s the height of bad manners to touch people on the head. It’s also a faux pas to point your feet in another person’s direction. And if you find yourself at the Koh Phangan Full Moon Party and a stranger comes up to you with an offer of a substance which is now legal throughout Canada, don’t accept it. Before you head off to your chosen destination, please watch the National Geographic Video, ‘Locked Up Abroad‘ season. In the UK, they call it, ‘Banged Up Abroad’.
  5. Enjoy! Enjoy the different aromas, cuisines, cultures, people. Be open to new (good-gut-feeling) experiences. It’s your world too, so go explore it!
