Recent IELTS Tutor Class Reviews From Our Students

Student Professional Tutor Date Subject Rating Comment
Philip 15 Mar 2022 IELTS
Well organized and productive lesson. Essays corrected and some time provided for speaking practice as well.
Philip 10 Mar 2022 IELTS
Speaking practice, a couple of exam questions covered. A sort of disagreement over the"radiation energy" issue, which was based upon the philosophy of examining and passing exams rather than on the language itself. Changing of the backward distracted the attention of both parties.
Philip 03 Feb 2022 IELTS
Task 2 structure, an example, two essays reviewed. Speaking on the benefits of cold showers, cold baths and the method of Wim Hof and how it helps to deal with household problems and a frustrating landlady. The time has passed too fast. The lesson was pleasant and will pay off when it comes to the ielts exam.
Philip 14 Nov 2021 IELTS
I have received a number of tips and clues on the strategy and technique for a description of a line graph.
Philip 11 Jul 2021 IELTS

Online IELTS Tutoring FAQs

Why study IELTS?

IELTS is the world's most popular test of English language proficiency for higher education and global migration. The IELTS Academic Reading Paper tests your ability to read, understand and interpret academic texts.

The IELTS is used by a large and growing number of academic institutions to assess English language proficiency. The IELTS is recognised worldwide by higher education organisations, professional bodies, governments and other institutions that teach English. This means that if you want to study abroad or work in a country whose natives speak English, you will need to demonstrate a high level of English proficiency, which can be done by achieving a high score on the IELTS exam.

What are IELTS lessons required for?

If you are an international student and want to study at an English-speaking university, you will probably need to take the IELTS test. The IELTS test is internationally recognised and accepted by most higher education institutions. Regardless of which degree you have chosen, you will need to provide evidence that you are proficient in English. Your score on the IELTS test is one of the factors that will determine whether or not you will be admitted to a university. Expert iELTS tutoring with the right tutor will help you achieve the score you require.

How does IELTS help with immigration?

Getting a visa in an English-speaking country is no easy task. Immigration officials will ask questions about your English language skills, among other things. So, it is important that you can communicate effectively in English. By taking the IELTS test, you can prove that you are proficient enough in English to follow instructions and present your work to your colleagues. If you pass the IELTS test, you will have a better chance of getting a visa and possibly a job in an English-speaking country.

The IELTS is also required to apply for immigration to the United Kingdom. All applicants must have an IELTS certificate with a minimum score of 6.5 to be eligible for a visa to the UK.

How expert IELTS tutoring can help you

Teachers will take the time to assess your starting point then develop a personalised syllabus to work towards your objectives. Online classes will focus on your areas of weakness and on developing the confidence you need to achieve your goals in all areas of the test. Lessons will also push students in areas that they are already comfortable in, encouraging constant improvement and developing positive learning habits.
