  • “I have found that the S-TESL students far outshine others in terms of preparedness to teach immediately, and the ability to be creative and flexible … S-TESL graduates are strongly prepared with the┬ámaterials, theory, practice and confidence that others lack.┬áThis makes S-TESL graduates stand out in a field that is inundated with qualified candidates.”

    Local Employer
  • “Lively teachers who are genuinely concerned about student learning. The faculty is committed to staying abreast of research and current topics in ELT.”

    S-TESL Graduate
  • “I thought the class was extremely well organized. The material was very useful to me in the teaching that I am currently doing. I think that I personally learned more from this class than many of the others I have taken to get my teaching degree. The class was challenging but fun.”
