TESOL Canada Accreditation Increased my Income in China

Ever since I became accredited through TESOL Canada, my pay rate has increased over 50% and my teaching skills have also improved through online TESOL Canada upgrades.

Teaching English in Canada was never attainable without Accreditation of TESOL Canada

I became certified through a different TESOL school. Their training was less than expected and I felt incomplete without TESOL Canada Accreditation. Taking upgrading courses and joining TESOL Canada made all the difference and updated my skills. I now teach in Language Studies Toronto. Teaching English in Canada was never attainable without Accreditation of TESOL Canada and its Membership.
