As we work together to build your English competency, we will get to know each other more, making the lessons seem like they are about your life. I use supplementary materials and resources outside of our normal lessons. Some examples include homework about current events. I always use the most current IELTS questions, I don't use those stale old Cambridge books! Audio/Video Policy I do not do โ€œaudio onlyโ€ calls. Your body language and facial expressions are important indicators of whether or not you understand the material we are discussing. Age of students: I ONLY teach senior High School students, college/university students and adults. Sorry I DO NOT teach Children. Students preparing for IELTS (Academic or General) are the students who will benefit most from my teaching.

This IELTS test is marked in terms of its: Task Achievement, Coherence and Cohesion, Lexis, and Grammar. We will focus on all of these factors. IELTS SPEAKING Part 1. You will learn the proper techniques for answering these short questions Part 2. Topic based answers we will practice these as many times ask tis required. But be warned you also need to do extra work outside the classroom to be a successful speaker. We will work on you being able to speak fluently for 2 minutes. Part 3. More of a conversation. So we will practice conversational speaking based upon this tests structure. I only use up-to-date questions. When I ask you to do speaking homework which I ask you to write. We work through it and I will correct your grammar. Then I speak the answer and record my voice. I send you the MP3 after the lesson so you can focus on my Native English/British pronunciation, intonation and stress patterns. I can also help people who want to improve their English for employment reasons, such as working for English speaking companies, working with foreign colleagues, needing to teach in English and so on.
