Refutation of allegations made by our business competitors

TEFL Online Pro statement in response to malicious, misleading and untrue statements published online by TEFL program competitors.

Three of our business competitors have published malicious, misleading and untrue assertions online with regards to the TEFL Online Pro international TEFL/TESOL certification course program.

The assertions:

  1. TEFL Online Pro is not accredited.
  2. TEFL Online Pro is not a legitimate company.
  3. TEFL Online Pro is a fraud/scam.
  4. TEFL Online Pro is the owner of trustedteflreviews.com.
  5. TEFL Online Pro customer video reviews are fake.

None of the assertions hold up under scrutiny. All five of the assertions are untrue and defamatory.

Our response to the assertions:

  1. TEFL Online Pro is fully accredited by ACTEFLC – Accreditation Council for Teaching English as a Foreign Language Courses. Our acteflc.com accreditation identification number: T21-1325910.
  2. TEFL Online Pro is a legitimate company, providing international Online TEFL/TESOL certification courses. TEFL Online Pro has been a verified business member with Paypal since 2019. Our course graduates teach English online and overseas with their TEFL Online Pro certification, and this is backed up by our verified customer reviews.
  3. TEFL Online Pro is not a fraud or scam. If TEFL Online Pro were a fraud or scam, there would be multiple verified customer complaints made online and Paypal would not have continued to partner with us.
  4. TEFL Online Pro is currently the top-rated TEFL program listed on trustedteflreviews.com. We won the prestigious Teachers’ Choice Award in 2019 and 2020, and we have verified customer reviews published on Trusted TEFL Reviews. Any valid similarity between teflonlinepro.com and trustedteflreviews.com ends there. In addition, the TEFL Online Pro Facebook page was created an entire year before the Facebook page of Trusted TEFL Reviews.
  5. TEFL Online Pro currently has eleven customer video reviews uploaded, with two graduates having recorded a post-course and follow-up video – describing their course experience and how their TEFL Online Pro certificate has enabled them to secure online and overseas teaching English employment. All eleven videos were recorded by graduates of a TEFL Online Pro Online TEFL/TESOL certification course. None of the reviews were recorded by a person who has not taken a TEFL Online Pro Online TEFL/TESOL certification course. The majority of our customers that have recorded a video testimonial for us, have also left a customer review on the TEFL Online Pro Facebook page.

The intention of the assertions.

All five assertions have been published by business competitors. None of the assertions come from a reputable source.

The intention of the assertions is to seed doubt and reduce the credibility of TEFL Online Pro in the eyes of potential customers. It is also the intention of the assertions to divert business from TEFL Online Pro to the competitors making the assertions.

The assertions have been published by ESLinsider TEFL/Ian Patrick Leahy, MyTEFL, The TEFL Academy/Caitriona (Maria) McTiernan.

All three are business competitors, providing Online TEFL/TESOL certification courses of their own.

Proof that links Caitriona (Maria) McTiernan and Ian Patrick Leahy to a TEFL competitor is listed below this rebuttal statement.

TEFL Online Pro is seeking legal advice and we will be acting accordingly in due course.

TEFL Online Pro verified customer feedback.

Verified TEFL Online Pro customer feedback can be viewed on the TEFL Online Pro Facebook page, on the TEFL Online Pro YouTube page, on the teflonlinepro.com Reviews page, and on the independent TEFL reviews website Trusted TEFL Reviews:

One of our August 2020 graduates, who took the TEFL Online Pro 140-Hour Hybrid Online TEFL/TESOL certification course, recently provided us with a follow-up video testimonial. Noor describes how her TEFL Online Pro TEFL/TESOL certificate was instrumental in finding teaching work online with PalFish and Preply, and how it has been an essential document for successfully securing a teaching English position abroad in South Korea.

Here is Noor’s follow-up video testimonial:

TEFL Online Pro review: Teaching English online and in South Korea.

Noor’s experience is representative of all of our customers who take a TEFL Online Pro Online TEFL/TESOL certification course.

TEFL Online Pro runs three award-winning, fully accredited and internationally recognized Online TEFL/TESOL certification courses:

60-Hour Fast-Track – the perfect solution for people with TEFL experience. 

120-Hour Professional – the perfect solution for people with little or no TEFL experience.

140-Hour Hybrid – the perfect solution for people with little or no TEFL experience who are wanting in-class teaching practice.

All three Level 5 and CELTA-equivalent courses lead to the awarding of the international TEFL/TESOL certificate.

With a TEFL Online Pro TEFL/TESOL certificate, you are guaranteed a teaching English job online or overseas.

We thought it was important to issue a statement because those of you who are new to TEFL may not realize that it is a small number of our TEFL competitors that are writing that TEFL Online Pro is not a legitimate company, not our TEFL customers. 

The overwhelming majority of our TEFL customers have a very positive TEFL Online Pro course and post-course experience.

Teach. Travel. Explore.

Teaching English overseas presents a fantastic opportunity of seeing the world, while funding your travels along the way. Some people choose to teach English abroad in their gap year, others see it as the perfect opportunity to live abroad for a few years and some people find a home away from home and make teaching English their choice of life career.

Wherever you want to travel, there is a high chance you will be able to teach English there. Every year at tefl online pro we train up hundreds of people just like yourself, who then join the thousands of tefl online pro graduates who have either taught, or who are now teaching in classrooms from Austria to Zanzibar. There has been no better time to start the adventure than now and when you are sunset-sipping cool Pilsner beers on a Prague rooftop bar or satisfyingly slurping down a 1 dollar bowl of phở in a mom-and-pop shop side street Hanoi restaurant, you can reminisce about your old life and feel a sense of personal pride.

The tefl online pro International Job Guidance Team has a perfect score in helping to find our graduates teaching English positions abroad, and is available for you at any time during your teaching English career. It doesn’t just stop once you have secured your first teaching position.

"What I really loved about this course was that it afforded me the freedom to study according to my busy work schedule. I've taken online courses before, but this was definitely the best learning experience by far."

"If you were to tell me a year ago that I'd be making a living close to the tropical beaches of Southern Thailand, I'd probably have said you were mad. My advice, if you're thinking about TEFL, is to go for it!"

Teach. Travel. Chill.

Have you ever dreamed of living and working abroad? Imagine yourself stopping off at your local pâtisserie on your usual route through the cobbled Paris streets to reach your morning classes, or picturing yourself catching a Thursday evening auto rickshaw home from school and getting ready for a long weekend away kicking back on a southern Thailand island. At tefl online pro we have helped thousands of graduates find teaching jobs worldwide, and there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t join them.

Teaching English abroad enables you to live an authentic local experience where you get to meet people you would never have had the opportunity of meeting otherwise. And you will also get to know other expats like yourself, who have also taken the plunge and gone for it. 

Teaching English as a Foreign Language affords you the freedom and opportunity of discovering and reinventing yourself. And who knows? You might just meet that one particularly special local who makes you want to settle abroad permanently in a life-changing relationship. Then you’ll have 2 places where you can call home and you’ll be able to show family and friends around when they travel out to visit you.

Wherever you want to live and teach, the opportunities are waiting for you. Teach. Travel. Experience.
