About Me

Hey, my name is James, I am an English teacher on Verbling. I am from Canada. I have been teaching English since 2014. I am a certified teacher through the University of Cambridge. I am currently living and working in Mexico.
Apart from teaching English online and in person, I am also a singer, songwriter, and music producer. I have a youtube channel called create2elevate, where I utilize my talents to teach English through music. Besides this I also enjoy reading, being outside in nature, traveling and meeting new people like you.
Let me explain to you why you should take classes with me. I know how difficult it can be learning a new language because I myself came to Mexico to learn Spanish. I love teaching and I always make sure to personalize my lessons to the individual student’s needs with materials such as visuals, songs, literature, interactive games and much more.
We will achieve goals according to your specific needs and interests, for example; you may be learning English for the first time, or maybe you already speak it, but wish to practice and improve. Or maybe you need help with your English homework, or to prepare for an upcoming job interview or exam. You will learn and improve in all areas such as Reading, vocabulary, Listening, speaking, pronunciation and writing.
Whatever your reasons are for learning English, whether they be to get a better position at work, get a better job, or travel and meet new people and cultures, I know that I can help you get there. Choose me as your teacher and I promise you that together we will reach your goals. If you have more questions, don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to meeting you and being your teacher, see you soon.
