Top Tips for IELTS

IELTS in Boston and the world!

Steve is my sort of teacher. Where he starts is by assessing your weaknesses and strengths and then he builds you a plan around that. For a test like IELTS this I believe is completely right. Have a look further down and you’ll see he has all sorts of useful experience too and he can help with far more than just IELTS preparation.

My teaching style in 140 characters

I ask my students to set goals. You tell me what you need; I assess your weaknesses;  together we set up an action plan. This way we have a specific goal to achieve and your progress can be measured with that goal in mind.

As a trained IELTS and TOEFL examiner, I can teach you how to maximize your Writing and Speaking scores, for both exams.

I can also help you with college applications: Personal Statements, Common Application (USA), Supplemental Essays, Interviews. I have helped students gain acceptance at universities both in US and Europe.
