No matter which of our online TESOL courses you choose, you will have the choice of either a tutored version or an untutored version. We typically recommend the tutored version of our courses to anyone who hasn’t had plenty of previous experience with distance learning. The additional support you receive from our professional trainers can make a huge difference to your overall study experience and make your journey to TESOL certification that much smoother. From day one your tutor will be there to answer any questions you have, no matter how big or small. Their sole focus is to guide you every step of the way towards successful completion of your chosen course.
To ensure we offer the very highest standard of support and guidance to all our trainees we only take on teacher trainers who have extensive experience of working in an international English language teaching environment. All our tutors will have worked for several years in a range of different classrooms and in a variety of different countries. On top of their extensive experience, they will also possess advanced-level teaching qualifications. One of the main attractions of having a tutor to help you with your studies is the fact that they will have been through the exact same training experience themselves, so they will always be fully aware of what you are going through and what you need to do to reach a successful conclusion to your studies. Although we do recommend going with the tutored option, the final decision is entirely down to you.
