I recently completed the TESOL certificate course with OnTESOL, and found the information presented in the course modules to be very helpful. 

The methodology covered in this course will give you a great understanding on how to organize your lessons and provide supportive strategies to reach the different types of learners in your classroom. The assignments will help reinforce these concepts and the tutor is there to help if any questions arise”.
