OnTESOL was developed by Coventry House International, the only school in North America that offers Trinity CertTESOL courses, to provide students with the flexibility of taking an internationally recognized TESOL/TEFL course online.
We offer a 120-hour online TESOL program, which is recognized by TESL Canada Professional Standard 1 and ACTDEC UK Level 3, and a 250-hour online TESOL program, which is recognized by TESL Canada Professional Standard 2 and ACTDEC UK Level 5.
The Advanced 120-hour TESOL Certificate is perfect for those who want to teach English in Canada or abroad because it is very similar to CELTA and Trinity CertTESOL. The 250-hour TESOL Diploma is perfect for those who want to pursue a teaching career because it goes deeper into various lesson planning formats and teaching methods.
Our Teaching English to Young Learners (TEYL), Teaching Business English Course (TBEC), Teaching IELTS, and Teaching Online specialist programs prepare trainees for specific classroom situations. Save $200 when you add a specialist to any of our TESOL course packages!

Review 233 of 233 OnTesol
I did the 250-hour TESOL Diploma, and 20- hour Specialist certificate courses (Teaching Young Learners, Business English, and Teaching IELTS). Margaret was my tutor for the Diploma course. She is highly experienced. She gave detailed explanations to questions, and provided constructive feedback. Talking about the course material, I think anyone can understand it. It was easy and concise.
For the Specialist courses, James was my tutor. He’s experienced and also responded to queries promptly. I think Teaching IELTS remains the best. It covered all aspects of the IELTS Exam preparations, and has wonderful tips that can help any student to succeed.
I must say that it is worth it for anyone aspiring to be a good ESL teacher to go for any of the OnTESOL courses. They are carefully designed to meet different needs with regards to teaching. Above all, you are going to meet wonderful people that would help you succeed. I remembered when I couldn’t meet up with the deadline due to accident that I had, Sebastian and others were there to help. I have already gotten my diploma and certificates but they are still willing to help with job search.
In general, I recommend Ontesol to anyone who wants to be a wonderful ESL teacher.
Review 232 of 233 OnTesol
I moved to Canada during the pandemic, and in order to continue my 10 year long teaching career, I needed a certificate recognized by TESL Canada. So I chose Ontesol 120-hour advanced certificate.
The online courses allowed me to make the best out of the lockdowns, I was free to learn at my own pace, take the quizzes and rewatch and review the materials even offline, and I had the amazing support and thoughtful feedbacks from my tutor on my assignments and personal essays.
Over all it was a great learning experience for a teacher.
Review 231 of 233 OnTesol
I did the 250-hour TESOL Diploma, practicum, Teaching Business English, and Teaching IELTS. The diploma’s course content was well designed and very informative. In the grammar module, there were a few ambiguities and errors in the text, so I turned to my tutor for help. Margaret was wonderful and answered my questions with very detailed explanations. Google and a good grammar book also helped a lot with the grammar module. I found the Teaching IELTS course to be more practical than the Teaching Business English course because it offered many tips that were really useful for IELTS. My tutors for these two courses, James and Mojgan, were great. They always replied back to me within 48 business hours.
One thing I love about OnTESOL is that they offer job assistance to their students and graduates. Dan, the student advisor, provided some much-needed resume and cover letter support. This has helped me land two interviews within a week.
All in all, I recommend OnTESOL to anyone who wants to teach ESL.
