The TEFL program at the Manuel Antonio location is led by one of the best teachers I have had thus far in my life/career. Jackie Bira is what makes the TEFL program so amazing, she is the glue that holds it together. The course load is quite a lot, but Jackie goes above and beyond for her students, answering emails in a timely fashion, having office hours, and also just being very supportive of her students. She also does help with future job assistance which is an amazing addition. The days are long and tiring at times but Jackie always keeps her energy up which I certainly appreciated. I am very grateful I decided to go to Manuel Antonio for my TEFL program because Jackie truly made the class/experience one I will never forget!

The TEFL certification with Maximo Nivel in Manuel Antonio is great option for someone looking for a comprehensive TEFL education. The trainer, Jackie, is full of energy and extremely supportive and knowledgable in helping her students complete the course. She is a dedicated teacher, and the content and resources that come with the course are top level. I completed the hybrid version of the course, which gave me flexibility combined with on hands experience and teacher support. Highly recommend.

Considering getting Tefl qualified? I honestly can’t reccomended Maximo Nivel, in Manuel Antonio enough! The destination is absolutely beautiful. The view from the school is outstanding! As for the trainer, Jackie, she’s amazing. The course is intense, but absolutely worth it. I’d advice if you want to explore this beautiful location to do so in the first 2 weeks of the course, week 3 and week 4 are pretty full on.

Jackie, is an outstanding teacher who gives all of her students 110%. Lessons are lively, engaging and taught in away that will support you through your Tefl career.

I’m currently in my last two days of the TEFL Course here in Cusco, Peru, and I have to say that this is one of the best decisions I’ve made for myself. Sean is an amazing instructor and helps guide you through the program from start to finish. The opportunities provided to not only learn how to teach English, but to learn about the culture of Cusco and its people and the history of the Incas, and so much more. The class observations and practical teaching have been invaluable assets in improving my teaching skills and confidence. I’d recommend this program for anyone considering a field in teaching English. As an American, this has been a perfect opportunity to see the world and gain experience!

Mackenzie Tucker was my instructor, and I feel he could not have done any better than he did. An absolute pleasure it was to learn under his guidance.

Jackie was an amazing instructor. It was nice to learn from someone who had high standards but who was also willing to guide and support students always. She is a knowledgeable and skilled instructor and I would highly recommend this program.

I am a 51 year old woman and wasn’t sure what I signed up for when I decided to enroll in the TEFL course with Maximo Nivel. The program was more difficult than I thought it would be but my teacher, (MacKenzie Tucker) was excellent. He gave me many opportunities inside the classroom and after hours to understand, practice and activate the information. I was behind the other students in my proficiency of Google docs and Zoom but by the end of the course I could not only teach English but also navigate technology with 10-12 students all coming online at different times with different English levels. Maximo Nivel prepared me to be a good teacher by understanding my own native language so much better and giving me a wonderful tool box of skills to use in the classroom (in person or online)! My only recommendations would be that I would have liked to have taught at least one class in person but perhaps that wasn’t possible because Guatemala still has strict “in person” guidelines because of Covid. And I wish there would have been at least one lesson on how to teach children or those who don’t know how to read. There was a brief section about teaching children in the first week of the course but no hands on guidance in this area of teaching. Overall, I am walking away with a great skill I can use anywhere in the world. Thank you MacKenzie for your unlimited patience with me!!

I thoroughly enjoyed my time here with Maximo Nivel in Manuel Antonio. Jackie is a wonderful TEFL trainer who really goes above and beyond to help. They’re not lying when they say the course is intense, but nothing was more rewarding than finally receiving my certificate! The location is absolutely amazing, with great spots for lunch as well as the beach nearby. I would 10/10 recommend coming to complete your TEFL training here with Maximo & with Jackie 🙂

I just graduated from TEFL today! I had a great experience with Máximo Nivel in Peru. Sean, our instructor, is incredibly qualified and a wonderful teacher. To be honest, I normally have a lot of trouble staying awake in classes, as I have a sleeping issue. I did not fall asleep once in his class. Sean was incredibly engaging and used ESL techniques like eliciting and CCQs to teach us. I loved all the hands-on practice we had with practical teaching. My class was the first onsite TEFL class in two years! It was a really cool experience, as we were a larger class (6 people). Everyone in the institute was so happy that we were there and they treated us very well. I am very grateful for this opportunity and that I signed up to my TEFL training through Máximo Nivel!
