Top Tips for IELTS

Jan – IELTS tutor in North Carolina (and the world!)

A new IELTS tutor for you

One of the services I look to provide on this site is access to top quality freelance IELTS tutors. No matter who you are, it really does help to talk to an IELTS tutor at some stage – and I write that as someone who has a website for self-access learners.

Here’s a new tutor you can find on my IELTS tutor page. I say “new”, but as you will see Jan has over 25 years experience! She specialises in speaking lessons on Skype, so if you need guidance for the exam, why not check her services out?

What my students say:

“I had a great experience of having IELTS exam preparation lessons with Jan. My goal was to achieve 7.5, and together we managed to improve my English level significantly within a very short period of time, just about one month. So, I was able to reach my desired result. I was really impressed by Jan’s professional knowledge, patience and ability to turn such a hard piece of work into an enjoyable pastime. I learned a lot of really valuable hints for a successful speaking test. Moreover, it turned out that they are also important for everyday communication, as I have moved to an English speaking country now.” Natalia, Moscow/Auckland

    That’s great. How can I join the 1:1 speaking classes. How much does it cost?

      The idea is you contact Jan directly to discuss that. You will find her contact details if you click the link.

        Dear sir/Madam,

        Thanks for your emails.

        I am searching for an Ielts tutor who could prepare me for Ielts – Advance level Reading ( Academic section ).
        I was able to obtain the Intermediate level band score and my aim is to achieve an Advance level band score.

        Thank you for your immediate attention to this email.

        Yours faithfully,

          Hi Florita

          All I can suggest is that you contact one of the tutors directly – obviously you have found Jan. They all provide slightly different services.
