Meet our Teachers

Our teachers for the Beginning through High Intermediate levels hold, as a minimum, a Bachelor of Arts, or higher, degree, and a TEFL or equivalent certificate. Teachers for the Advanced ESL and all test preparation courses possess a M.A. TESOL or higher degree. Our instructors  are committed to receive on-going training and improve their teaching approach.

Every few weeks, AFI conducts student surveys regarding our ESL program and our teachers. We carefully review the student surveys and comments and incorporate their valuable suggestions. Our students' expectations and needs greatly aid in the on-going improvement of our program.


The common goal of our teaching faculty is

  • to provide opportunities for each student to achieve success in communicative and literary comprehension in English;

  • to provide resources to attract more students from around the world to study English and continue to provide services to ensure the viability of this institution;

  • to strive to continue to improve student performance through student involvement in classroom activities

  • to offer instruction that is the most effective and efficient way to improve students' learning curve.

The many hundreds of ESL graduates who have come to study with us since 1995, are a testimony to the success of our faculty.
