  • Completing my TEFL course with eTefl Online was the best decision I have ever made. The support was incredible. I got my first job within a month and have been loving it ever since. A year after completing my course Jody is still always an email away to assist me in any way I need. I would not hesitate to recommend eTefl Online to anyone wanting to start a career as an online ESL teacher.

The great service I received from the team at eTefl Online was amazing and within a few weeks I had my certificate and my training was all done.

  • I'm currently in my 17th year as an editor and communications manager and in my comfort zone. I decided to contact eTefl Online and Jody answered all my questions in detail. He was professional and I became excited that this could be a viable career change. I dealt with Nadine too, my tutor and impressed that within minutes she would respond to my emails. Dealing with eTefl Online has been wonderful as they are people driven.

  • I have always been intrigued by teaching English to foreign students. I came across your post on Facebook about the live webinar and decided to listen as it would feature Lauren from South Africa. It answered many questions for me that I had been pondering for a while. So I signed up to do my online course. My dealings with everyone thus far has been amazing and the service and response to questions have been prompt. The course is set out in such a way that it is easy to follow, very informative and well presented.

  • I can honestly say that this is one of the most rewarding jobs in terms of seeing progress and how you have helped people and children. Yes, you are doing a job and earning money from others, but it is so much more than that. To see your student’s progress and receive written compliments and feedback from them shows what a difference you have made in their lives. Your work is valued. You are valued.
