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! 🙂

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 – 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 – 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 🙂

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 – 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!

TEFL/TESOL Scams

ESLinsider reviews and tefl online pro reviews online defamation.

ESLinsider reviews and tefl online pro reviews online defamation.

The following article highlights for our readers one of the dark underbellies of the Online TEFL/TESOL industry – online defamation. It specifically exposes one such specific example, regarding ESLinsider, and also looks at how we recommend you respond to online defamation should you also become a victim of this spineless (often anonymous) crime.

For any of you unaware of the meaning of ‘defamation’, it is when knowingly false material is published online and with the intent to harm someone’s reputation.

If you have stumbled upon this article, you might have arrived here by typing ‘TEFL Online Pro reviews’ into a search engine.

Listed in that search will be examples of verified customer reviews of the tefl online pro international TEFL/TESOL certification program, such as:

But among the genuine tefl online pro customer reviews, you will also see links claiming that tefl online pro is a scam, untrustworthy, a fraud – none of which have been written by anyone who has taken one of our courses.

Ian Leahy is the one-man-show owner of ESLinsider.

It was soon after when tefl online pro won the Teachers’ Choice Award, 2019, when we first noticed the Reddit and forum posts appearing – attacking tefl online pro with conspiracy theory slings of mud. At first, we didn’t really take much notice of them – they were so ridiculous that we brushed them off as prank posts.

But the false accusations grew over time and it has only recently been the case that we have been able to identify exactly who is behind the publication of this online abuse.

It is actually two schools – two of our Online TEFL/TESOL program competitors.

The first is MyTEFL.

We were not so shocked that the MyTEFL name was brought up, because they are notorious for creating attack (WordPress) websites on their competition. As an example, MyTEFL created an attack website on ESLinsider/Ian Leahy (whose YouTube channel mugshot features above) and we think that this is pretty low behavior from MyTEFL.

It was, therefore, a huge surprise to us that Ian Leahy began mimicking that low with his own defamation campaign against tefl online pro – attacks on Reddit, and attacks via his Online TEFL/TESOL school blog. And now (updated: 3rd September, 2020) with attacks via his YouTube channel.

The ESLinsider Online TEFL/TESOL program (shared apartment) Head Office – Fukuoka, Japan.

At first, we were dumbfounded as to why Ian Leahy would spend so much of his personal time focussed on trying to bring down a competitor. But then, we had a read of his Online TEFL/TESOL school blog – located on his official school website pages – and we plainly saw that Ian is a serial defamer. Pick any Online TEFL/TESOL certification course and Ian will have written some sort of trash about it online.

Why does he do this? What’s in it for him? Why waste the time on this unprofessional path?

Ian Leahy targets his competitors, because when he does so a post linking back to his school shows up in the Google results. Let’s take tefl online pro as this example. If you Google ‘TEFL Online Pro Reviews’ you see that Ian’s (ESLinsider) attack post is one of the first results for this Google search. This is because he has spent over two weeks now linking the article to other articles and posts that he has written on the internet. Ian is hoping that anyone who searches for tefl online pro reviews will click on his post, be directed to his school website (where the article is published) and then become convinced to take his course, instead of the tefl online pro international TEFL/TESOL certification course.

However, it looks as though people are becoming wise to this scraping-the-bottom-of-the-barrel tactic as is demonstrated in a recent ESLinsider customer review:

ESLinsider Online TEFL/TESOL course review – July 2020

Ian Leahy doesn’t just contain his defamation to website posts and articles published on his own school website though – he also spams his own YouTube channel with his relentless conspiracy theories.

According to Ian Leahy, tefl online pro is ‘FAKE’!

Published on 12th July, 2020, this video is like watching one of Ian’s greatest hits – with tefl online pro being his latest fixation.

It was because Ian obviously thinks that he can get away with online defamation with impunity – spreading false allegations in the hope of winning new customers for his own program – that we decided that enough was enough.

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 consequences, we contacted YouTube and requested that the video be blocked in Japan – Ian’s current home country.

As you can see from the email screenshot above, YouTube also have a zero tolerance policy regarding Ian Leahy’s online defamation.

We feel that it needs to be pointed out here that Ian Leahy has been accused of faking ESLinsider customer reviews. We can’t comment on this accusation, because we don’t have any proof of this. Besides, we are far too busy – focussed on our customers – to even consider spending time investigating whether this accusation is true or not. What is clear though, is that Ian prefers to have full total control over his customer reviews and that the largest source for ESLinsider reviews are on the ESLinsider school website, where every customer but one has left a 5-star review of his program – which doesn’t seem fishy at all, right?

The only other “reviews” that we found of the ESLinsider Online TEFL/TESOL program are a few Quora posts, all claiming that ‘ESLinsider is legit’ and all (recently) written within days of each other. We searched for the ESLinsider Facebook page – an excellent source of verified customer reviews – but couldn’t locate a page for ESLinsider. On Trusted TEFL Reviews, ESLinsider just have the one (2-star) customer review.

ESLinsider.com fake 5-star reviews.
The chief source of ESLinsider reviews is on the ESLinsider school website.

So, what should you do if you find yourself a victim of online defamation?

If the information being spread is false, and if you know who is spreading the untrue rumour(s) then call the person/people out. It might not prevent them from continuing on their sick campaign, but it will let other people be made aware of the larger picture.

And if you do have access to a company lawyer, as we do, then we advise taking the legal route. It might seem expensive at first, and it might take some time to receive closure, but when that closure comes it will be worth it – both in terms of protecting your company name, and making the person/people think twice about doing the same thing to other people in future.

Despite the actions of MYTEFL and ESLinsider, we wish both companies all the best.

Thank you for reading this ESLinsider reviews and tefl online pro reviews online defamation article.
