Prepare for IELTS online

There is lots of free IELTS practice material on the web, but it is much harder to find an IELTS program that is tailored to your needs.  By working with a qualified, experienced English teacher, you will be able to develop a plan to achieve your goals. Whether  you are studying for IELTS General, or IELTS Academic, I can give you the tools and strategies to improve your score. I can help you with Parts 1, 2, and 3 of the Speaking Test in a live session via Zoom, and I can give you written feedback and error correction when you submit Writing Paper 1 and 2 practice exercises via Google Docs.

CELPIP training

If you are a newcomer to Canada, preparing for the Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program (CELPIP) is essential. I am a native speaker of Canadian English, with a thorough understanding of the unique requirements of the CELPIP test. By focusing on speaking and writing, I can help you develop the confidence to succeed and start your new life in Canada!

Improve pronunciation and fluency

Reading books and watching movies will certainly help you improve your comprehension and vocabulary, but if you truly want to learn a language, you have to use it. Use it, or lose it! Of course, the best way to learn English is to live and study in an English-speaking country; however, this is not always possible for everyone. Online lessons via Zoom can be a very effective alternative. You can practice in the comfort of your own home, at a time that works for you, one-to-one with a teacher who can give you expert feedback and encouragement. I can help you identify aspects of pronunciation that may be challenging for you, and show you strategies that are effective and fun to help you master the sounds and rhythms of English. All lessons are recorded and are available at no extra charge, so you can review them any time.
