If you need expert help in achieving your desired IELTS/TOEFL score, then I am the right tutor for you. During my career as a(n) IELTS/TOEFL instructor and ESL professor, I have successfully tutored hundreds of students, helping them achieve their target band score in the IELTS/TOEFL exam (for some of the latest results, see the reviews below).
At the start, a mock test will determine your current score based on which I will give you a tailored plan for your exam success.

For TOEFL, I use TOEFL iBT Prep Plus (2019), Cracking the TOEFL iBT (2019), Kaplan Practice Tests for the TOEFL (2018), and the ETS Official Guide to the TOEFL Test (2017).

Perfect! Ali is one of the best IELTS teacher I met in GTA area, after five classes I had some huge improvement on my writing techniques and essay coherence, I highly recommend him to who really want to improve their IELTS scores.
Perfect! I needed to pass IELTS General exam for immigration. After 2 unsuccessful attempts, I've got 6.0 in writing while my goal was to get 7 or above. When I started taking lessons with Ali,I learned a lot about different kinds of essays as well as essay structures. I really enjoyed Ali's teaching style because he knows everything about the writing section of the exam and always pays close attention to details to make sure that I understand every hard part. After our lessons, the structure and quality of my essays has improved dramatically and now I feel confident taking my next test.
Perfect! Perfect! I met him when I was frustrated and had a very limited time to prepare for a high score.I am lucky to find such a qualified expert in IELTS. My score increased from overall 7 (listening 8.5, reading 6.5, writing 6, speaking 6.5) to overall 8 (listening 8.5, reading 8.5, writing 7, speaking 7) after one week intensive period of training. The classses were productive, motivating and enjoyable.I am thankful for the help to achieve my goal. I would definitely recommend this teacher!
It has been an absolute pleasure working with Dr. Arzu. We had 1 week of intensive classes during which time we went over IELTS techniques and strategies in each section of the test for each skill (except listening). She very effectively used those techniques to improve her work and/or increase the accuracy of her answers. I particularly enjoyed reading her essays by the end of our classes. Congratulations on your well-deserved success in the test, Dr. Arzu!
Perfect! Ali has a very strategic methodology and showed his professionalism in teaching IELTS. I improved very quickly after went through four lessons with him
Richard is a fast learner and is very detail-oriented. His incredible learning speed enabled us to make very fast progress during our classes. I was very much impressed with his essays which were rich with vocabulary and contained a good range of grammatical structures. Great job, Richard!
Perfect! I took a private TOEFL class with Ali. He helped me in writing and speaking skills. I was nervous about my speaking ,but now I am more confident. He explained everything for me and answered all of my questions during the sessions. He is very professional and I highly recommend him.
Sarah significantly improved her speaking and writing skills during her classes with me. In her writing classes, she found a creative way of using the writing structures she was taught in her essays. In the speaking section, she improved the fluency and coherence of her talk during the allocated test time. She got 24 for her writing (IELTS equivalent of 7) and 21 for her speaking (IELTS equivalent of 6.5) in her TOEFL test. Congratulations Sarah!
Perfect! I had classes with Ali for a month and during this time, he taught me effective strategies on how to achieve my ideal IELTS score. His insight and knowledge about the IELTS exam is amazing and he directs you towards your desired IELTS score.
Now I can apply for my immigration with these scores:
Writing and reading: 7
Thank you so much Ali!
Paris is a very smart, motivated and hard-working student. During her classes, she made rapid progress in terms of understanding what the test requirements are in each section and what strategies to employ to reach the best outcome. I'm very happy that she got the exam scores that she wanted. Way to go Paris!

Antonio is a smart and a very quick learner. In our writing classes, he learnt how to write academic essays with well-organized paragraphs. He also learnt how to use appropriate linking devices to improve the coherence of his writing. In our reading classes, he successfully applied a number of academic reading strategies in order to answer reading comprehension questions. Overall, I am very happy with the progress he made during his classes with me.
Perfect! I have been taking classes with Ali for a month now and my IELTS skills have improved significantly during this time. The content of each section of the test has become very clear since Ali takes the time to explain everything in detail. I feel more confident after taking private lessons with Ali. He is very professional and He always answers all my questions . I highly recommend Ali to other students.
Things are going really well. So far, we have worked on her essay writing skills. She writes very strong essays, and we are hoping she could get a writing score of 7-7.5 in her IELTS exam. We will start working on her other skills very soon. I'm very optimistic about her final IELTS exam results.

Ali is an amazing teacher. He motivates you, he encourages you and he leads you to achieve your goal. I highly recommend him as to put is simply, he knows what he is doing and he knows all your strengths and your weaknesses.
I had all my 4 skills with him, and it was a great experience as during my classes I learnt how to write finally (lol), how to effectively read a passage in a timely manner, how to focus and concentrate on a subject in my speaking test, and how to listen and find the key words for my listening exam.

Speaking: 7, Listening: 8.5, Reading: 8.5, Writing: 7.5. Overall: 8
