Testimonials from workshop and short course attendees.


"Classes filled with fascinating world travel anecdotes, energy and positivity, never a dull moment"

I recall walking into the Certificate 3 course in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), nervous and yet eager to learn.  Maria immediately made me feel at ease with her vibrant personality and her use of ice breakers that had us all feeling like a ‘group’ working towards a common goal from the get go.

Maria injected her brand of enthusiasm into each workshop always providing us with encouraging and constructive feedback in the practical assessment and popping in fascinating and entertaining anecdotes from her world travels designed to link our learning to real life situations.

I would absolutely recommend Maria as a trainer, there’s never a dull moment and her classes were filled with energy and positivity, leaving us feeling well prepared and excited for future teaching opportunities.

"She used dynamic, engaging teaching strategies... sessions were informative, hands on and fun"

Maria Doyle became my TESOL trainer in 2004. I decided to undertake my TESOL training primarily because of Maria’s international experience, passion and dedication to the world of ESL students.

As a trainer she used dynamic, engaging teaching strategies to teach the content of the course. Her sessions were informative, hands on and fun.As a qualified primary school teacher myself, Maria introduced me to a communicative style of teaching that can be transferred to all aspects of the teaching profession; from young children, adolescents through to adult learners.

Maria’s teaching style was so impressive that I, along with a group of my colleagues and friends, employed her as a tutor in a language other than English using the same communicative, dynamic style.

Maria is a knowledgeable and committed educationalist whose experience and skills in the area of Teaching English as a Second Language spans across the globe. She connects with people of all ages, from many countries, from all socio economic backgrounds. She has developed a range of programs, resources and initiatives on an international scale as well as being involved in overseas volunteer programs to support a range of charities. I had the privilege to observe one of her teacher training courses in Kiribati and saw how she connected with the students and inspired them regardless of the cultural diversity.

I observed her natural ability to communicate and engage the trainee teachers, provide constructive feedback and develop their confidence to become competent teachers within their community. Maria’s skills, experience, commitment and passion are an asset to the international education profession.
