Are you up for the challenge? Please contact us if you meet the following, not-so-stringent requirements:

- You possess a Bachelorí³ degree + TEFL certification. Experience is preferred, but if you don�have it and you do have a great attitude and personality ñ ´¨at is fine too! (Note: If you have TEFL certification AND significant experience, that will make up for a lack of a Bachelorí³degree).
- You are able to commit to teach with us for at least FOUR months (and much preferably SIX).
- You are 21 years old or more (and unlike some of our competition, we LOVE teachers over 30).
- You are a North American native English speaker (client demands ñ ³¯rry).
- You are adventurous, independent and creative.
- You enjoy working with adults in fun, challenging and professional environments.
- You work well with others, want to improve yourself, and can take positive feedback, as well as points for improvement.
- You are willing to dress appropriately for teaching in business environments (sorry, no blue hair ñ ¡®d you� have to take out nose rings and cover up the super obvious tattoos).
- You are NOT a whiner, sniveler, chronic complainer, or prone to quit something at the first sign of difficulty. (Costa Rica is wonderful, but it is still a ì³¥condî ·orld country with it�fair share of challenges and aggravations).

Do you fit the bill? Does this sound like a GREAT opportunity for you?

Yes? Great! (and if not, I respectfully suggest you stay home and keep watching life pass you by. Winners try new things and push past their fears - losers just end up wishing they had).

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


The tenses can cause the most difficulty for English students. The EFL course uses twelve tenses. The areas covered in this unit are positive, negative and question. Usages how and under what circumstances the tense is used. Student errors are expected, as a teacher I need to have correction strategies prepared to help my students. In the activate stage the activities I choose should encourage the correct use of the tense.This unit provides good generic tips on how to teach specific groups of students. I still think that there should be more detailed, individualized units for each of the specialized groups so that teachers have access to in-depth information about a certain group should they need it. Overall, it was a helpful review for the group I currently teach but an eye-opener for how to teach a group I am not formerly acquainted with.
