TEFL Online

Hi,
I am currently living in Rome, Italy with a family and tutoring their 4 children. I want to obtain a TEFL certificate so that I can substitute at their English school and perhaps be qualified to eventually get a job there. I did not study education at University but have hundreds of tutoring/teaching hours at NGOs over the world and am awaiting a Peace Corps placement as an English teacher.
I have browsed this site and saw that most people do not recommend getting TEFl certified online, however, I do not have the money or time to get an incourse certification. I was wondering if someone could share their input on online certifications given my situation and that I am already spending 4 hours a day tutoring children aged 6-12. If an online course could enhance my credibility, does anyone know one that is credible or they have used before? Or, is it not worth the time at all?

Thank you! I really appreciate the help!
