About the lesson

I specialize in exam preparation: IELTS, TOEFL and CELPIP.

I have helped hundreds of students achieve 7+ in IELTS writing, 27+ in TOEFL writing and 9+ in CELPIP writing! If you need these scores, you have come to the right place!

Having trained hundreds of students through the years, I can teach you the secrets of how to gain your required score.

I inform my students of the common mistakes and tell them about the examiner’s method of evaluation. Such an “inside” perspective can be critical to beating a high-stakes test such as the IELTS.

In brief, I can tell you what you're doing wrong and what the examiner wants to see!

I offer a free 15-minute orientation session to get you started before our first lesson!

    1. When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?

    I started teaching English when I was 18. I later earned related university degrees and became a Cambridge-certified instructor and teacher trainer. My passion for language teaching derives from my desire to help my students succeed and is fueled by the amazing feedback I receive from my students almost on a daily basis!

  • 02

    2. What makes you passionate about your subject?

    I earned my master’s in Teaching English as a Second Language and my PhD in applied linguistics. Thanks to my years of formal education, I have a deep understanding of how second/foreign languages are learned. I enjoy applying this knowledge to help my students overcome their difficulties and guide them on their path to success.

    Receiving a note of gratitude from students who have achieved their desired score in high-stake tests such as the IELTS, TOEFL or GRE is truly one of the best feelings in the world!

    3. What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?

    To be a successful tutor, one must be able to adapt one’s teaching to the students’ level of ability.

    When teaching a class full of students, one simply delivers a lesson that is intended for the average-level learner and hopes for the best. In a one-on-one tutoring session, the aim is to custom tailor the lesson to specifically address the needs and wants of the student.

    I personally derive a great deal of pleasure from finding and offering solutions for my students’ specific challenges, and this is something that I believe I particularly excel at.

    4. Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?

    I have had many inspiring teachers throughout my years as a student, and I have met with many equally-inspiring teachers as a trainer. I have always been an eclectic tutor. Therefore, I am indebted to all these individuals for inspiring me and transforming me into the teacher and tutor I am today.

  • 05

    5. What are your keys to success?

    I owe my success to my years of education and experience. I believe that knowledge and experience are inextricably bound and one will not simply do without the other.

    I have been blessed to have both a post-graduate degree and over 18 years of teaching experience. One simply cannot go wrong with this combination.
