An outstanding must-join program!

The program has a great amount of flexibility, challenge, and practical teaching. Maximo Nivel truly emphasizes the importance of the student experience when it comes to learning ESL teaching. The facility in Antigua, Guatemala also has extremely helpful staff and is a wonderful-looking campus. The program also has a great step-by-step mentality when it comes to the job assistance aspect (not to mention that Maximo Nivel frequently offers several teaching positions). My Tefl Trainer Mackenzie was also extremely thoughtful, reliable, and always had meaningful feedback throughout the course; especially with lesson plans and practical teaching.

I had the best experience through Maximo Nivel’s TEFL course! I wasn’t sure what to expect when I arrived, but everything exceeded my expectations. The instructor, Sean, was so incredible! I had already had a lot of teaching experience and taken multiple ESOL courses, but I learned so much more from Sean. He provides really great feedback, is super encouraging, and very kind. On top of having 3 mini-lessons, we had an entire week of practical teaching. This week was so influential for me because we got to practice all of the skills we had been learning about and Sean gave us great feedback on how to continue to improve. Additionally, they offered a career opportunity workshop which was really incredible. It opened my eyes to how many opportunities were available to travel and teach English. Lastly, we were in the classroom everyday from 9am-4pm. It is an intense course, so be prepared! But being in the same room as the other TEFL students all day, everyday resulted in a lot of great friendships! This course was so worth it! I am immensely grateful for Sean, my fellow TEFL-ers and the Maximo staff for making this experience possible.

TEFL CERTIFICATION WITH WAYNE SUMMERBELL

This course served as an excellent introduction to the world of TEFL. Through the enthusiastic and knowledgeable instruction provided by Wayne, I was able to grow as a teacher and find a job using my TEFL certificate. I can not overstate how much of a privilege it was to have such a rigorous and impactful teaching program. This is thanks in no small part to Wayne, whose experience and dedication provided encouragement and insight beyond measure.

I had an amazing time taking my TEFL certificate in Manuel Antonio with Wayne Summerbell as my TEFL teacher. Wayne brought so much energy to the class, making TEFL really fun and engaging. I loved his beautiful boardwork and that he didn’t only teach the TEFL technics but modeled it throught the course. It was great to have so many opportunities to get practical teaching experience. Wayne always gave us very helpful feedback after each of our lessons.

Overall, the TEFL course at Maximo Nivel taught by Wayne Summerbell was such a positive experience! I learned so much about myself and about teaching throughout this program, and felt safe, challenged, and supported throughout the entire process. It’s a huge kudos to the Maximo Nivel program for being structured so well, and to Wayne for delivering it in such an excellent manner. I will remember this program for the rest of my life, and the effect that it, and my instructor had on me will also be with me throughout my lifetime. Thanks to Wayne and Maximo, I feel prepared to teach English to anyone, anywhere in the world; which is no small feeling to have. Thank you guys.

I did the TEFL course in Manuel Antonio March/April 2023.

We had the best trainer who was so competent, clear, and concise. The course was professional, the feedback helpful, and Maximo has been around for 20 years so the course just ran smoothly! You get actual teaching experience (we taught adults) in a beautiful location! It is expensive in Manuel Antonio, so I would suggest the homestay option where breakfast and dinner are included.

I had such an incredible month at Maximo Nivel in Cusco, Peru. We had fun everyday, I learned so much about grammar, teaching theory, and how to be an effect English teacher. Wayne, Annabelle, and Sean were incredibly fun, knowledgeable, kind and offered amazing feedback for how to improve as a teacher. Michelle, Becca, Anthony, and Luzcely were so friendly and helpful. Cusco is one of my favorite cities in the world. What a life-changing month, I can’t wait to come back to work at Maximo in the future.
