We really need people who can teach TOEFL and IELTS classes.Right now we pay a monthly salary starting at 1500 - 2000 TL a month, depending on qualifications and experience. We have a 90 day trial period, where either party can back out of the contract. At the end of the 90 days, if the contract is signed, we will include a small raise and then raises with every review (which is yearly). We pay for the residency permit and work permits. We pay for/provide housing as long as they share it with one of our teachers. We pick you up at the airport in Adana( next to Mersin).

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.


Unit fifteen is about evaluation and testing. The beginning of the unit talks about giving feedback to the students and the different ways that you can assess the students language level through tutorials, student evaluations and tests. The unit gives a little bit of detail on each method as well as example tests and other resources. The information was well presented and easy to understand and follow.In this unit, simple, progressive, perfect and perfect continuous were examined in the Present tense. The positive statements, the negative statements and questions in each form were also examined. It was quite helpful to review when these tenses are to be used and identifying typical mistakes made when using these tenses. Several great ideas to activate the teaching of these tenses were also provided.
