The SIT TESOL certificate is recognized and respected around the world.

The program is equally rewarding for those with little or no teaching experience and for experienced teachers looking to upgrade their skills.

Taking the SIT TESOL course at Rennert Center in NYC is the best decision I have ever made! My teacher trainer Selina was amazing. She was so kind, helpful, and profoundly constructive. And the class only had three other participants besides me; it was so personalized. The woman who both interviewed me and provided us all with job assistance, Autumn, is the most exuberant, excited person. You will never doubt your decision from the minute you are accepted to the minute you leave the center. In fact, I have never been more nostalgic about something coming to an end than my TESOL course. Thank you Rennert! I have grown so much because of you! Honestly, the only downside was that our classroom had no windows!

The SIT TESOL course I took in Berkeley,California changed my life. Without taking that class I would not have had launched the teaching business I have now. The instructors absolutely love teaching and they are experienced professionals who have seen it all. I really appreciated the small class size and the fact that we always had access to them regarding questions on techniques in teaching. Teaching is one of the most important skills anyone can have and I’m glad I honed those skills with Josh Kurzweil and Jen Gemma at the SIT TESOL institute. Highly recommended, one of the best courses that changed my life.

I took this course about four years ago, but still find what I’ve learned there very useful. The instructors are great – they have a lot of teaching experience and are both excellent teachers and trainers. That’s important, as I was able to learn a lot just from observing them teach. The course itself was well organized and the overall quality of participants was fairly good. The practice teaching component was also very useful, especially the feedback portion (unfortunately, there were times when we had too few students for our practice teaching, but that wasn’t a major issue).

Overall, I highly recommend this program. It wasn’t cheap, but it was a worthwhile investment and the instructors really aim to help you grow as an ESL teacher.
