Your material is simple, clear, practical, down to earth and unpretentious. And you are a pleasure to listen to- your manner is friendly and airy. You're not intense , trying to pack lots into a few minutes. I think you have mastered the skill of "it's OK if I don't give over EVERYTHING I know". That takes humility. I am learning this surely but oh so slowly!!

I love your detailed and clear explanations of grammar! I started as a newb, did my CELTA, and now I teach phonetics at my local city college. All you explanations made everything so clear and it gave me the confidence to teach it.

Your material is clear, concise, practical and consistent. I always can put your advice and instruction into practice immediately. The Elt-Training brand is one I can trust and I feel it's very good value for the money.
