TESL Express Teaching Academy is located in Capitol Hill in Seattle. Since 2006, we have been offering classes to earn a TESL/TEFL (Teaching English as a Second Language/Teaching English as a Foreign Language) Certificate to be able to teach English around the world. We are part-owned by David's English Center in Taiwan and can help our qualified students apply for a position there.

Our program is 60 hours of instruction and an optional 12-hour practicum. The class is designed to give students a hands-on training for how to teach English to non-native speakers. The class focuses on lesson planning, classroom management, and teaching philosophies specific for the ESL/EFL teacher. The intimate classes allow for participation in class discussions and ample opportunity to practice teaching to their classmates to receive extensive feedback from the instructors and peers.

The practicum allows students to get paired with a mentor ESL teacher and spend time observing and student teaching in a local ESL classroom setting. The practicum usually is completed a few weeks after the class instruction.

We currently offer daytime intensive and evening intensive classes. Our daytime classes meet for 4 weeks, Monday through Thursday from 2 to 5:45 pm. Our evening classes meet for 8 weeks on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 9 pm. All classes are held in person at our Capitol Hill office in Seattle.

Tuition for our class is $1250 plus a $100 non-refundable registration fee. The cost includes all textbook and course pack material fees. The practicum costs an additional $350. While the registration fee is due upon enrollment, the tuition can be paid in 3 installments over the duration of the class. There are also discounts available for registering 1 or 2 months in advance.
