About the lesson

-If you need expert help achieving your desired IELTS/TOEFL score, then I am the right tutor for you. During my 20-year career as a(n) IELTS/TOEFL instructor and an English college professor, I have successfully tutored hundreds of students, helping them achieve 7.0+ in IELTS and 100+ (25 and over in each skill) in their TOEFL exam (for some of the latest results, see the reviews below).
_____________________________________________________________________________________

- I will teach you the latest IELTS/TOEFL tips, tricks and strategies which will boost your exam performance in all four skills.

-Through my feedback, you will gain insight into the examiner's mode of thinking and the kinds of mistakes you are making that affect your score. As your mentor, I will continue to support you until you feel completely prepared to ace the test!
_____________________________________________________________________________________

-At the start of our tutoring sessions, I will give you a customized course plan that can look like the following:

*** One-Week Crash Course (SP and WR scores of 7+/LIS and RE scores of 8+):
Ideal for IELTS candidates who need to boost their overall score by .5 to 1 point. Classes range from 2 to 4 hours a day depending on your needs and my availability.

*** Two-Week Intensive Prep (SP and WR scores of 7+/LIS and RE scores of 8+): Ideal for IELTS candidates who need to boost their overall score by 1 point. Classes range from 4 to 8 hours a week.
_____________________________________________________________________________________

For TOEFL candidates, a customized course plan could look like the following:

***Two-Week Intensive Prep (RE: 25+, LIS: 25+, SP: 25+, WR: 25+):
Ideal for TOEFL candidates who need a boost of 5 points or less in one or more than one skill. Classes are typically 6 hours a week.

***One-Month TOEFL Prep (RE: 25+, LIS: 25+, SP: 25+, WR: 25+):
Ideal for TOEFL candidates who need a boost of 5 or more points in one or more than one skill. This option could also suit those who seek a semi-intensive course experience. Classes range from 2 to 6 hours a week.

    01

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

    When I was six years old, my family and I moved to the U.K., and as a result, I naturally picked up English in school. This experience made me interested in the process of Second Language Acquisition later on in my life. When learning a second language, your whole person is involved; various regions of the brain, a wide range of emotions, your motivation, and a whole host of socio-cultural factors are at work that lead to the mastery of a second language.

  • 02

    What makes you passionate about your subject?

    IELTS opens doors, creates opportunities and helps newcomers successfully integrate into the Canadian society. IELTS also enables international students to function effectively in their future college or university programs. It is beautiful to play a small role in the future success of new Canadians.

    03

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

    The fact that I can help make positive change in my students' lives makes me very passionate about tutoring. Seeing my students' success is the most rewarding aspect of my job. I think my qualifications and experience are an essential part of being a "Superprof", but more importantly, my positive attitude toward teaching and my dedication to student success make me a real "Superprof"!

  • 04

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

    When I was doing my master's, my psychology professor's passion for the subject matter, his curiosity for learning and his care for his students really rubbed off on me. I think these are important qualities that a teacher needs to possess to be effective in their role.
