I'm an ESL TAFE lecturer and have enjoyed attending Geoff's professional development sessions for several years, both face to face and over Zoom. I am so impressed with how he has maintained his personality, excellent resources and engaging activities in this online workshop. He provides great examples of how we as teachers can introduce, review and assess the grammatical concepts with our students in an easy student-centred manner. The handouts provided are a wonderful resource for information and/ use in the classroom. Geoff is able to explain something simply, avoiding a lot of the technical meta-language terms which can confuse students as well as make grammar practical and fun for the students. I strongly recommend all ESL and literacy teachers to take this course.

The Teaching Basic Sentence Structure course approaches sentence structure from the basic building blocks of a sentence right up to the way a sentence is put together. Geoff is an inspiring instructor with a wealth of knowledge and in the course he presents practical, useful and fun ways of understanding and teaching sentence structure. I love the course.

I followed this course and professional development. I found the presentation was based on Geoff's teaching experience and it provided very helpful insight into my teaching and also a very good refresher overall to the knowledge of English grammar.
