Montreal-Based TESOL-Certified ESL Teacher and IELTS Specialist with 14+ Years of Experience

Methodology

You only learn when you produce sentences in a real-life context. I start with an evaluation and a needs analysis, and create customized classes for you to reach your goals as quickly as possible. I focus on sentence structure, correct grammar, advanced vocabulary and good fluency and pronunciation. If you are preparting for IELTS, the classes will focus more on the speaking and writing parts, and some tips will be given for your listening and reading skills to practice with in your own time. I give you homework every session, including writings that we will go over and diagnose.

Background

Throughout my 14 years of ESL teaching, I have helped thousands of students learn and improve in English and achieve success in their work or studies. I have an MBA degree from Concordia University and a bachelor's degree in English Literature. I was certified for Teaching English to Students of Other Languages in 2005 by Trinity College of London. I specialize in exam preparation for IELTS, TOEFL, GMAT, SAT, and CELPIP.

I took IELTS courses with Alan. He works on different questions and tasks in detail. He knows so much about IELTS because of his job. The classes raised my band score in a remarkable way and I went from a band score of 6 to 7.5!!!

Alan's classes are efficient and fun. He presents different topics for discussion and then tells me where I make mistakes. I'm glad I chose him as my teacher.

I have taken classes with Mr Alan for several months and my English has improved SO MUCH. As a newcomer to Canada, I had so many problems in school in my English course. Mr Alan helped me in language learning and also with literary analysis. He is so knowledgable. He also helped me give better presentations in class. Thank you Mr Alan.

Alan helped me get score of 7.5 in ielts test and I am so thankful to him. I was lucky to have him as my teacher. He is extremely patient and a true professional. I always tell him he should make youtube videos so more people can learn from him for their english and language tests. I recommend him 100%.
