Proud of our Unique Program

As you can see, we at S-TESL are very proud of our TESOL programs. According to TESOL International Association (the largest professional organization focused exclusively on English teaching for speakers of other languages), most independent certificates cannot be applied toward state teaching credentials or a master’s degree. But that’s where S-TESL bucks the trend. Through our affiliation with Seattle Pacific University, you CAN apply the credits earned from our TESOL Certificate toward a WA State ELL Endorsement or a master’s degree. When you complete our program, you gain:

  • practical classroom skills and learn “best practice” techniques
  • a solid framework for delivering English courses and lessons
  • authentic teaching experience with real language learners
  • sound knowledge of underlying theoretical principles
  • a Seattle Pacific University TESOL Certificate
  • university transcripts as PROOF of credits earned
