Students have to do their part. This is not a vacation, or a time to party. This is a year long course mushed into four weeks. This is a very doable course. I learned more from Jackie in four weeks than I did in four years of high school. Jackie is an awesome instructor. Full of life, energy, funny and smart. Jackie respected everyone and considered their points of view. She has an open door policy and is willing to work with the students.

I had such an amazing experience in Costa Rica. I had my host home and Maximo Nivel as my second home. The staff there are really amazing and they were always helpful and interactive, It truly felt like my second home in Costa Rica… Jackie was absolutely amazing, the energy she brought into the class, the love she puts into what she does is really amazing. She was sooooooo patient and constantly volunteered her free time if you needed it. Jackie is seriously an amazing person that I will remember long after my time in Costa Rica is over. Goodluck and God bless to Jackie and Oso and the rest of Maximo Staff

I loved the TEFL program in Manuel Antonio! What an amazing group of teachers and staff.

Jackie, the TEFL Trainer, is an incredible teacher. She works so hard, is so dedicated and kind, and makes her students laugh! I was so nervous initially about who would be our teaching every day for a month, but I wouldn’t have chosen anyone else! Genuinely, you can’t ask for a better teacher than Jackie Bira. You can tell her compassion for teaching and for her students is so real, and she will help you with anything you need if you reach out.

I truly learned so much about myself and about what it means to be an ESL teacher during this month, and I wouldn’t have traded the experience for anything!

Hi 🙂

I completed my TEFL course in the MAY – APRIL course in 2021.

It has been such a great experience. Maximo’s team was always eager to help us with assistance and so was our incredible TEFL teacher – Jackie – She not only prepared us for teaching, but she also helped us become the best versions of ourselves. She was more than just a teacher, she was someone we could count on as a fellow friend – She was available 24/7 for assistance and she even took time off from her personal life schedule to help us improve! Without her we all would have been lost in our thoughts of what is right and what is wrong. I want to thank Maximo’s team and Jackie for being so kind hearted throughout the entire program. I would recommend everyone to come to Costa Rica for their TEFL course, it is such a beautiful place! AND YOU ALL WILL GET TO MEET JACKIE AND MAXIMO’S AMAZING TEAM MEMBERS!

Had a good experience with Maximo’s TEFL course. Karen was a great instructor who seemed to really be invested in her student’s learning, and gave very helpful and thorough feedback. It was nice having a lot of practical teaching opportunities as well.

My TEFL course was some of the most fun I have had learning in my life. Both Karen and Jackie are great instructors, and they work hard to get you to improve not only as a teacher but as a person as well. You cannot go wrong with getting certified in TEFL with Maximo Nivel. Manuel Antonio is a beautiful place to learn. Antigua Guatemala is also another option to be certified as well. I was lucky enough to have Karen and Jackie in Costa Rica, but Karen primarily teaches out of Guatemala. Either way, you can’t go wrong, but I highly recommend you check out both.
