All of our online TEFL courses can be taken either with or without the guidance of an online tutor. Choosing the tutored version is generally recommended for anyone who is not experienced in distance learning as having the support of a professional trainer can make your study journey that much smoother. Throughout your training the tutor will be available to answer any questions you have and to steer you towards successful completion of your chosen course.
To maintain the highest standards for all our trainees we only hire teacher trainers who have extensive experience of life in an international English language classroom. Every one of them has taught English in different environments and has several years of working in foreign countries under their belts. They also possess a range of high-level teaching qualifications. Our tutored courses are particularly popular as you receive assistance from a professional who was once in the exact same position as you, so they will know exactly what you need to do to succeed. However, whether you go with a tutored course or not is entirely your own decision.
