« Gustavo is a teacher who manages to be super professional while being friendly and fun. The classes, aimed at the goals I seek in my career, are taken from conversations, exercises and challenges. For me - even though I already knew English and opted to have a teacher to improve the language - it was essential to know Gustavo. I recommend him to all my friends and I would like to recommend him to those who need to improve English somehow. »

Experienced and Certified IELTS Instructor with a band score 8.0 in Toronto - How to prepare and get the desired band? Study with a Teacher who understands the subject!

Methodology

* Most English courses neither deepen the knowledge of the language nor prepare students for an international proficiency test.

* Expressing yourself effectively and fluently is important but understanding how the test works will ensure you a high band at IELTS.

* That being said, my classes focus on:

- oral expression, applying ADVANCED and DIVERSE VOCABULARY.
- oral comprehension, through audios in DIFFERENT ACCENTS and STRATEGIES in solving the test.
- written expression, developing the DIFFERENT TYPES OF TEXTS present in the test, their STRUCTURE and ORGANIZATION, as well as the APPROPRIATE VOCABULARY.
- written comprehension, through different texts and ADEQUATE TECHNIQUES, optimizing time and energy.

* Books and supplementary materials will be provided by the teacher.

* FEEDBACK of written and oral activities will also be provided!

Background

* I have been studying English since I was 9 and have been teaching for 15 years now.

* I taught in Brazil, Egypt and Canada, in internationally-recognized schools.

* I have taken IELTS for General Training and Academic as well as FCE Cambridge.

* In my last IELTS, I got a band 8 in Academic (level C1).

* I am a certified TESOL teacher (Arizona State University - USA) and have taken several courses about teaching as well as IELTS.

* During all these years, I have improved my English and passed on this knowledge to my students.

* Several former students obtained the expected band in proficiency tests.

* I understand effectively how the test works, its particularities, characteristics and techniques suitable for its full realization.

ADDITIONAL EXPERIENCE:

* At the moment, I am living in Canada and have completed a College Program in Special Needs Support and Educational Assistant.

* I took Biological Sciences (Teaching Degree) in Brazil from 2006 to 2009. In 2010, I started my Master's Degree in Cell and Molecular Biology, concluding it in 2012.

Gustavo is a teacher who manages to be super professional while being friendly and fun. The classes, aimed at the goals I seek in my career, are taken from conversations, exercises and challenges. For me - even though I already knew English and opted to have a teacher to improve the language - it was essential to know Gustavo. I recommend him to all my friends and I would like to recommend him to those who need to improve English somehow.

I highly recommend Gustavo Igansi to you. As the Operations Manager of EduNaissance International Inc. (ENII), I have had the pleasure of working with Gustavo for one year.
He is a driven, organized teacher who develops inspiring relationships with his students. Gustavo has always been driven to develop his skills as a teacher. He came to us a student teacher, eagerly taking up extra responsibilities such as advisor of the summer camp.
He continued to contribute this effort through his work at our learning centre. Gustavo embraces any opportunity for professional development, which makes him the most welcomed teacher.
Gustavo has an excellent rapport with the kids here. His ability to connect with his students and his talent at teaching simple concepts, as well as more advanced topics, are both truly superior.
He also shows his excellent written and verbal communication skills with both parents and teachers. Gustavo accomplishes all these tasks with considerable initiative and with a positive attitude. I recommend Gustavo to you without reservation.

As his vice-principal, I had the pleasure to work with Gustavo for 12 years. Gustavo is a great, enthusiastic teacher! He is attentive and understanding. He listens to his students and helps them with their particular needs. During the time he worked with us, he was very organized and dedicated, going beyond the ordinary to provide students with awesome lessons! Gustavo’s methodology and teaching techniques were exceptional and much appreciated by students. They could easily learn from him and parents were very satisfied. I recommend Gustavo without any reservations due to the fact that he is a very professional yet personal teacher.

Lorenzo

He's been my teacher for a long time, my first class with him was in my high school. The commitment he has to my development is different, his teaching facilitates my learning a lot. I always recommend him.

Gustavo and I worked together at a Language School in Rio Grande do Sul/Brazil for 7 years. He is a very enthusiastic teacher (the happiest one on Saturday mornings!). He loves teaching, he is creative and dedicated to his tasks. At this specific school, learners had a final project to develop before graduation which usually envolved acting and filming. His students always delivered great work with his help and guidance. Take a chance! You will surely enjoy his classes.

He is an amazing teacher with a great connection with his students. He always brings enthusiasm to the class and makes everything easier to understand. I used to love his classes here in Brazil.
