About Me

Hello There! I am Neil and I have been a corporate and general English trainer for over 6 years now. I have done my PhD and I have an American TESOL certificate to boot along with a diploma in medical sciences. And I have taught students from Japan, Vietnam, Singapore, China and Taiwan online for several years, and now, on Verbling, I have students from all over the world and it is a great experience. :) I have extensive experiences in training people to be highly competent users of English in the 'native-way.' My lessons are very interactive! I am a very friendly, comfortable and funny teacher and I use effective, innovative and interesting ways to teach so that my students really learn a lot and also have a good time even when they are tired after a long day's work. My teaching methods involve listening, reading, speaking, pronunciation, vocabulary, writing and free talking and I often use pictures and funny video clips for descriptive purposes. Everything is aimed at giving my students maximum practice. My students have never scored less than 7 in IELTS so far and all of them are extremely satisfied with my classes. I DO NOT TEACH GRAMMAR and instead use natural acquisition of language through immersion into a total English environment. I always respect my students and expect the standard courtesies from them too. Let's learn with fun! Cheers!
