Top English test preparation for CELPIP, IELTS, CanTEST, CAEL and TOEFL. Call now!

Methodology

I have an extremely focused approach that also makes me stand out in the following areas:

1. The most recent (actual) exams. If you prepare for 1 month, you will find many similar questions (almost 90%) in your exam as a result of the training.

2. Strategies that are given to us by IELTS/TOEFL/CELPIP/CELBAN/Cantest/English examiners.

3. Homework and some excellent test samples.

4. Continuous practice of exam situations in class.

5. Structures that you can simply memorize to use in your exams.

With all this combined with my positive and friendly attitude, students always end up with an unbelievable learning experience. One that is full of content but feels more like a joy ride.

Background

Over 16 years now, my students have been passing their English/ESL exams and have been able to tremendously improve their English skills to the point where they are able to now speak like Western native speakers!

Not only do I and my team work with exam instructors to get the most up-to-date exam requirements, but also provide to the student the most focused strategies that are EASY TO UNDERSTAND, FAST TO LEARN AND FOCUSED ON A PROFESSIONAL ENGLISH CURRICULUM.

I myself have scored 8.5 in IELTS and have helped my students achieve maximum scores as well:
IELTS: 9 band (over a hundred cases)
TOEFL: 120 points (56 cases)
SAT: Full marks (45 cases)
CELPIP: 12/12 (over 300 cases!)
This excludes the thousands of other students who have been able to secure university entries or who have qualified for top-notch jobs thanks to their newly-learnt English skills.

Likewise, these successes are the reasons why I love my job and continue teaching. Every day, I work hard towards achieving student results. The very moment they pass and thank me is something I live for day and night!

With my TEFL certification, 16 years of experience, work with examiners, professional training for English teaching skills, background of working with students from all backgrounds, and most importantly DOCUMENTED TRACK RECORD OF SUCCESSFUL CANDIDATES, I am sure that your requirements for your next learning venture will be guaranteed and pleasing!
