When my IELTS exam is very near, can I book many sessions with you?

Of course, and it’s also a very good idea. I have often had 2-3 sessions with a student in one day, right before an IELTS exam.

Is this website only for IELTS students?

No, it is also available for people and business professionals who want to improve their English skills. In this globalized world, English is an important tool for business!

Can I book an appointment, even though I am in a different country and time zone?

Certainly. In this business, we have to be flexible and cater to our clients’ needs. I am sure we can work something out.

I have an IELTS score of 5, but need an average of 7 for university. Will it be possible for me to get this score?

A very good question. Many other websites will say they guarantee you will, but this is not the case. To go from a 5 to a 7 in a short space of time, is very difficult and unlikely. If you are now a 5, this is telling you that your English skills do not meet the requirement for a university that is asking for a 7. It is also an indicator that if you entered this university now, you would struggle and have difficulties following the course content. However, if you are a committed student, willing to study harder, put in more hours, learn from your mistakes, and develop your fluency, then of course it is possible.

How soon will it take me to improve my IELTS score by at least 1 or 2 marks?

Many of my students have been an average 5 IELTS to begin with, but worked hard and followed my instructions, and eventually achieved their desired scores of 6.5 or 7. The time scale of their tuition was 2-3 months, and took at least 2 IELTS exams in between this period.
