Introducing our amazing tutors
All of our tutors are hand-picked for their experience and excellent service. Check out our reviews on teflcoursereview.com
Tracy has worked all over, including four years in Japan where she realised TEFL was her calling. She’s now got over 15 years of experience in the industry, including time as Director of Studies at an English language college here in the UK, where she has a young family. She now loves to help others realise their dream by writing and marking your TEFL courses.
After training as a primary school teacher in Newcastle, our tutor Claire moved to Prague to start life as a TEFL teacher. Since then, she’s taught in Greece, Czech Republic, South Africa, Italy and Spain (to name a few places!) and still loves to travel, though she’s now based in the UK with her partner and daughter.
DELTA-qualified tutor Natalie has over 11 years’ experience teaching English in amazing locations like India, New Zealand and Cambodia, though she can’t pick a favourite. She’s worked in the UK in teaching and managerial roles, and now lives in the South with her two young sons biking, trekking and exploring local parks.
Australian tutor Bronwyn is one of the latest to join the LoveTEFL team. She first came to Europe as an exchange student over 16 years ago and was desperate to return, doing so by working in a range of jobs including air hostessing in the UAE. She’s got an MA in TEFL and now teaches international students preparing for university in the UK.
Sonia has got years of practical TEFL experience in South Korea and Spain, as well as having worked as an engineer in India before returning to the UK to tutor for us. Her favourite aspects of travelling are hiking and anything outdoorsy, as well as sampling the local food – but she’s terrified of monkeys (unfortunately, they know this and think it’s hilarious).
Paul has taught in the US and Argentina, as well as travelling around Africa, Europe and South America (where he travelled by bus from La Paz to Buenos Aires!) He now lives in London, where in-between marking your TEFL work he runs a program helping international students prepare for Uni. Also likes: cycling, hiking and watching his favourite football team lose.
Q1. What is TEFL and what will it do for me?
TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) is all you need to become a qualified teacher. After completing your internationally-recognised online TEFL course, we’ll send you your certificate which will enable you to start teaching English across the globe.
Q2. How do I know which course to choose?
There are loads of TEFL course providers out there, so it’s really important to do some research before parting with your cash. Hunt for great value, but also make sure the provider is accredited like we are. This means your qualification will be recognised all over the world. Our course is written by experienced TEFL teachers, so you’re learning from the best.
Q3. Can I teach TEFL if I don’t have a second language?
Definitely. In fact, in most teaching positions it’s preferred that the teacher only speaks in English in the classroom, to get students used to it.
Q4. Why are TEFL courses measured in hours?
When you apply for a teaching job, your employer will use the hours of learning as a way of knowing how much study you have done, and thus how qualified you are. 120 hours is usually the minimum required for most TEFL jobs.
Q5. Where can I teach with these courses?
Anywhere in the world where English is spoken! You can stay at home or seek our dream placements in locations across Asia, Europe, the Middle East and more.
Did you know?
You can earn in excess of £30 per hour with a Teaching IELTS qualification.
In the UK there are on average 52 applications for every graduate vacancy...
...Which is why teaching abroad is fast becoming an option for so many post-grads
Teaching abroad isn’t just for recent graduates...
...Exciting TEFL Internships don’t require a University degree!
Q6. What can I earn abroad with TEFL?
TEFL teacher salaries vary from country to country and are typically paid in the local currency. It's worth remembering that the usual income of a TEFL teacher is more than enough to accommodate the average cost of living in each respective country.
Q7. Can I make a career out of TEFL?
Absolutely! The career progression in the TEFL industry is great and varied. As a TEFL teacher you can progress to ADOS (Assistant Director of Studies) or even DOS (Director of Studies), or branch out into course designing (like our tutors!) and developing teaching materials.
Q8. What are employers looking for?
Employers are looking for teachers with all the essential abilities and knowledge to make for a positive learning environment. LoveTEFL’s interactive TEFL courses will turn you in to a confident, skilled teacher who employees would love to have in their class.
Q1. What is accreditation and why is it important?
When looking for TEFL courses, remember that it is important to find a course provided by an accredited company. LoveTEFL have been independently accredited by the Open Distance Learning Quality Council (ODLQC) and our online courses are recognised by schools worldwide.
Q2. What is the ODLQC accreditation?
The ODLQC accreditation means that we have been professionally reviewed and established as an official, high quality course provider. That means you’re in for a great learning experience giving you all the skills you need to teach abroad.
Q3. Where will my course be recognised?
Once you are TEFL qualified and have your certificate at the ready, you’ll be able to find work wherever English is taught as a second language. From our experience the majority of employers will ask for 120 hours minimum training, so the experience will be perfect for your TEFL job applications as well as giving you all the confidence you need to deliver effective teaching.
