Why choose Spires' expert IELTS tutoring?

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 passing the IELTS exam.

What is IELTS 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 university.

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.

Why Choose Spires’ Tutoring?

We only hire 4% of the teachers that apply to Spires and they are all professional and experienced school and university level educators. Many have qualifications from top universities and institutions in the UK, USA, and around the world. All have a Ph.D., MSc, Ma, BSc, or Ba in their chosen field.

We have a lot of repeat students and you can check out the high star ratings our clients leave. 

Because tutors set their rates via an auction system, our prices are more competitive than many other companies. Our online classroom is stable and fun to learn through. It has an interactive whiteboard and students can access recordings of classes at any time. They use webcam video chat when being taught.

Spires deals with all of the matching, scheduling, payments, and administration, we take all of the hassles out of organising support and allow students to focus purely on learning.

How does Spires’ online English language tutoring work?

You can find a top tutor in four easy steps:

1. Use the Find A Tutor feature to create a post outlining your needs and requirements. You can choose from subject, level, price, and expertise.

2. Find your perfect tutor from our wide variety of skilled professors and educators. After you filter your search results using the Find A Tutor feature you can choose to ‘view profile’ of the best choices for your needs. 

You can then see reviews and star rating, including total hours taught for Spires and the price per hr.

3. Have your face-to-face class. This can be done whenever and wherever you are, it’s all online- neither you nor the tutor travels!

4. Replay the classes afterward for any missed information at your own pace and convenience. 

Private help is that easy!

Does it matter if I have an IELTS tutor near me?

No, it doesn’t! It’s all done online whenever and wherever you are. All you have to do is pick your ideal mentor and speak to them to arrange the best time for you to have video lessons. It doesn’t matter at all if they are miles and miles (or kilometre and kilometre) away from you!

How many IELTS tutors are available to give private lessons?

We currently have over 19 IELTS Tutors with academic and general exam experience.

What qualifications do tutors need?

All of our tutors must hold at least a Bachelor’s degree and be experienced English language and IELTS teachers. Most have higher degrees on top of that, in specialised areas such as Master’s degrees or PhDs. To be an IELTS tutor, additional English teaching qualifications are required. All of our tutors are DBS checked or have had equivalent background checks. You can be assured our tuition comes from academic writing experts. Our expert Profs one-to-one speaking lessons will help you build confidence to achieve the IELTS score you need.

Do your tutors prepare for academic IELTS?

Yes, they do! Outline exactly what you need, whether it is academic or general IELTS preparation, in your job post. You will work on listening, reading, speaking, and writing skills. Your tutor will tailor the lessons to your specific needs and wishes.

Do your tutors offer IELTS speaking preparation?

Yes, they do! We have a selection of IELTS tutors with a lot of success in helping students reach their objectives with the speaking sections.
