Welcome Letter

Thank you for your interest in the AA TESOL Program of Professional Studies. Congratulations on taking this important first step towards earning your on-line TESOL program completion! As you progress through your search for a TESOL program completion, I encourage you to explore our programs and services to familiarize yourself with the program and all that it has to offer. This website provides a comprehensive overview that we are sure you will find helpful as you make critical decisions about your education and your future.

Our On-line TESOL program and certificate program is taught by faculty members who are renowned experts in their fields. Their teaching combines both theory and practical application to provide students with the latest trends and information that can be readily applied on the job. Faculty members are not just teachers, they are working professionals, who serve as mentors, and are deeply connected within their profession. They provide career advice and often help to cultivate valuable networking opportunities that serve our students well beyond completion of our program.

Students who join our program come from all walks of life and possess a wide range of professional experience. They are industry veterans who seek to enhance their professional credentials; career changers who are interested in acquiring new transferable skills; and recent graduates who require advanced knowledge to compete and to succeed in today’s challenging English teaching market. All are highly motivated and understand the benefits of an AA TESOL education.

I am Vaughn Starr, Executive Director of USAX and its subsidiary programs including AA TESOL, USAX student exchange programs and P2PTOURS short-term programs.  It is my mission to ensure that our programs are the highest quality programs available.  I became involved in international education 30 years ago as an international student myself, and have been running my own programs for more than 10 years now.  It is my goal to make our programs interesting, informative and fun, but above all to provide the best education available for our students.  I take a great deal of pride in how far we have come.  Thank you for choosing our services.”


We look forward to hearing from you.
