ESL professional and certified examiner specializing in test prep (IELTS, CELBAN, CANTest, etc.) and academic writing, but happy to work on all skills

Methodology

Along with making an accurate diagnosis of my student's needs, followed by detailed planning on how to reach goals, I offer the following:

1. Detailed essay writing practice with in-depth details on APA/MLA formats for referencing, in-text citation, research, essay structures, grammar, organization, etc.

2. Most recent (actual) exams. If you prepare for 1 month, you will find many similar questions (almost 95%) in your exam as a result of the training.

3. Tips that are given to us by IELTS/TOEFL/CELPIP/CELBAN/Cantest/English examiners.

4. Homework and some excellent test samples.

5. Continuous practice of exam situations in class.

6. Structures that you can simply memorize to use for your exams.

Also, try my FREE CLASS to see how good it is and find out for yourself.
