Brilliantly designed

Brilliant introductory course and for its price you can not go wrong. Lots of great information about teaching and how to manager classrooms etc. The course is broken up into manageable sections and after each of these is a small quiz.

I did the course at a very casual pace mostly while commuting to and from work each day as it was easy to access on my tablet or phone. You can complete the course quite fast but I would suggest taking your time as there is tons of valuable information which can really be used in real world settings.

Overall I would say the course had great value and was designed very well. My experience with mytefl was seamless and the staff was helpful when I had any questions.

Thank you to the admin team for being there when I had any questions!

Signing up sooner would have been nice (we all know hindsight is 20/20)

Great value course

The course was not only well designed and informative, but it was convenient for me to study on my own time and at a good pace. I tutor part time outside of my regular job and only heard of this course because my colleague who also does tutoring advised me she had taken the same course. She had pointed out the fact that it contained a lot which could be applied in the daily role as a tutor.

I didn't even have to complete the full 40 hour course before I saw the value in the lessons. The whole course was written and put together in a way that it was easy to understand but also challenging with the regular quizzes.

The price point didn't break the bank but the material and resources offered are very handy and useful to anyone in a teaching role.

I would perhaps look into enrolling in the 80 hour course

great for learning strategy and practical approaches

I decided to enrol in the 40 hour MyTEFL course as I plan to tutor younger children in EFL starting early next year. Although I do have previous experience tutoring, I felt it would be good to brush up on my knowledge. I also have found from online research that a certificate can help instil confidence in potential employers.
The course focused on helping me learn effective strategies to deliver information as well as creating tests. Because I won’t be tutoring until a few months from now, I was concerned about losing access to the course material. The staff at MyTEFL provided me permanent access to a review account through which I would have lifelong access to the material! And the TEFL library which has some excellent lesson plans and activities for my students. Now that is what I call a good investment in my career.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I wish that I would have known about the course sooner as it would have definitely helped me in my past tutoring
