Perfect! When it comes to IELTS prep Sam is the best out there! I only had a few days to work on my writing skills and I was panicking, but thankfully I discovered Sam on Superprof. He got back to my message within a couple hours and had me booked in the next day! He is exceptionally skilled at what he does and therefore, he was able to quickly pick up on my weaknesses and guide me in the right direction. I significantly improved my writing techniques over the course of 3-4 days and was able to achieve my desired result! Thank you so much Sam. I highly recommend him!

I had just one week to prepare for the IELTS exam. I have worked with Sam, we have done five efficient lessons with him. He is such a professional and good teacher and he is executing a unique, to-the-point method for teaching. I got an even better result than I expected. I highly recommend him.
I took my IELTS exam 2 days ago. Before taking the exam, I had 9 sessions with Dear Sam, and it was the best decision obviously, considering my experience in the exam. He is the best teacher I have ever had. He is very patient, speaks at a perfect pace, which made me more comfortable while my understanding process was going on in the classes. He gave me exactly what I need and has a unique teaching technique. I believe every test taker should learn it. It made my writing so easy in the exam even though I was under pressure. I finished both Task 1 and Task 2 essays 6 mins earlier than the time was given. I have not received my result, yet, but I am very comfortable.
I cannot thank you enough, Sam. You deserve more than you earn.
I definitely recommend everyone to take classes with Sam before taking the IELTS.

Mr. Shahriari was the professor of my GRE courses. I have known him for more than three years. During this period I found him a professional professor who works passionately. Mr. Shahriari’s deep knowledge and ability to think with his students’ brain while teaching are what I have not ever seen in any other English professors. I strongly recommend him as a professor and I wish the best for him.
