Reviews about this course

It was a pleasure to meet you in person and to be able to partake in the course over the weekend. I found the course very informative and helpful.I have learnt so much from you over the past three days. Thank you once again, for your patience, kindness and knowledge.  Hope to see you again in the near future


I need to thank you for making this experience unforgettable for me!  You were awesome. Really spontaneous and dynamic. We didn’t stop for a second hahaha

And it was really worth it. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!


Thank you for being an inspiration to all the students and sharing your teaching experiences with us. Seriously, you’re the best classroom style teacher I’ve worked with in a very long time. Our group was both interesting and honestly very cooperative! I’ve done a lot of group work for my MBA and it was so frustrating because I felt like I had to pull the weight in group activities. It was by far my least favorite part of my studies. But not in your class. Again, thank you for being an amazing instructor and giving so much of yourself and showing interest in each student’s personal situation. You’re a very special person and I hope to learn more from you in the future as you are an amazing role model


Thank you for all your help, support and most of all…patience!  The course was much better than I expected because you are very engaging and manage to get everybody involved during the lesson. I must say that there never was a dull or boring moment and love the way you motivate your students. I will make sure I come visit you the next time I am in Florence. Thanks again!


During this intensive TEFL course I appreciated so much the high professional approach of my English language teacher trainer, Sheila Corwin. I was impressed by her ability to synthesize a huge amount of information in such a short period of time and to transfer her knowledge to us in a very efficient way.  Concerning myself,  I have been pushed into putting myself out there and I have many new ideas about my future plans thanks to Sheila’s motivational tools.  I am so grateful to Sheila. Thank you so much !


Dear Teacher Sheila, First of all have to say that you are an amazing teacher. The course was really good and interesting. And the way you conduct that was really good. By doing the team activities, pair work and presentations, it really helped us to understand well and also to create a good relationship with other colleagues. I personally would like to follow your some teaching methods that I saw during these 3 days. Thank you!


The weekend TEFL will enable your confidence, abilities and sensitivity as English teacher. An extraordinary evolution of yourself from a mere observant into an active protagonist on the scene


The school provides a comfortable and stimulating environment. The staff are polite and professional. I am looking forward to taking other courses at Europass!!
