Online IELTS Preparation Course (Skype/Whatsapp)
Having your own IELTS examiner as a teacher gives you a massive advantage - you know
precisely what you need to do to get your band and why you are not achieving it
IELTS Essay corrections via Skype
Our teachers offer an essay correction service with you present in a Skype class (audio or video). This service is unique and is much more direct than an "email only" corrections service.
Most other services require you to send your essays to them and then you receive the essay back within a couple of days - With a lot of these services you do not know who has marked your essay and students often feel like they don't know what to study or how to move forward after reading their essay reports
In our opinion, having a Skype class is a much more beneficial way of learning and improving your writing as the teacher directly shows you what is wrong and what you need to do to fix things. They will explain every grammatical issue to you clearly. You can ask the teacher as many questions as you like and they will give you specific homework for your weaknesses.
Each student has different needs. These are some typical things the teacher will show you during the Skype lesson:
-You will learn how to generate ideas for your essays/what to write
-You will become aware of your grammatical mistakes + you will work on these issues
-You will work on structure and you will develop your skill
-You will learn to use appropriate/advanced vocabulary for your band
-You can practice many diverse topics - this will build your confidence
-You will look at model answers for you band
-You will learn to "think like an examiner"
-You will learn to write consistently
Most importantly you will learn precisely what is required to reach your band and understand what examiners are looking for.
After every lesson you will receive homework which could be exercises for your specific writing weaknesses and new task 1/2 essays to work on. This is a personal 1-to-1 service and all of the instruction is specific to you and what you need to do to pass.
The teacher is your own personal IELTS coach and you can ask them as many questions as you like!
How it works?
Please start by choosing a teacher and sending them a message, they will email you back and confirm your lesson time.
You then email your essays to the teacher before the class/or they can send you Task 1/2 for homework.
£20-23 per hour ($28-$31 USD approx) -If you would like to have an email only corrections, just ask.
Here is an example of a corrected essay:
During a 1 hour lesson on Skype or Whatsapp you can practice a lot and receive expert feedback and advice
You will learn:
- To confidently introduce yourself to the examiner
- To speak on a diverse range topics for part 2
- To develop your ideas for part 3 - building confidence
- To become aware of any of your pronunciation problems
- To use advanced vocabulary within each topic
The teacher will identify areas that you are not so confident talking about, for example many students struggle with areas such as art or economics - it depends on you.
The teacher will always correct your mistakes and write your mistakes "Live" in Skype or Whatsapp as you are speaking.
You will have lots of part 2 and 3 practice and the teacher will make sure you haven't forgotten things from previous lessons. (vocab+problem sentence structures)
You will develop the ability to speak confidently and clearly and the teacher will give you tips if you start to dry up/or freeze during part 2/3
Having your own personal expert IELTS teacher to practice on has been a huge help for so many of our students!
During a Skype Whatsapp lesson you will learn:
-To develop the ability to tackle the differing questions types (especially true/false/not given)
-Develop your speed and accuracy in locating information
-Speed reading tips and strategies
-To gain confidence with difficult passages
Teachers will show you free resources to practice the reading part.
-You will develop the ability to
-Understand the distinction between "numbers"
-Learn about when to use articles "the" "a"
-The teacher will discover your weaknesses in spelling and
help you overcome any problems with consistent testing.
Teachers will show you free resources to practice the listening part.
Definitely. During the free 15 minute consultation you can tell the teacher your past results and they will design a course just for you. During a full 1 hour lesson you can work for 30 mins on speaking and 30 mins on writing for example, it really depends on your needs.
The free 15 minute consultation is a time to ask the teacher as many questions as you like. They will listen carefully to your English and assess your level. Each student has different strengths and weaknesses and the teacher will design a course just for you.
Please let the teacher know your exam date and they will let you know how hard you have to work, and what you need to work on - Some students have to work very hard some not so much. It depends - The advantage of having an IELTS examiner as a teacher is that you will know specifically what you need study and why you are only getting "band 6" for example.
You can have 1 free consultation with a teacher, however if you book a paid lesson (even for 1 hour) then you can have another free consultation with another teacher. If you are late or do not show for a trial lesson, then the next lesson would have to be paid.
The free consultation is not a lesson, it is a time where you can ask the teacher how they can help you and explain your situation. Sometimes teachers cannot give a free consultation.

Yes. We get many applications, but we only accept teachers who have been IELTS examiners. We ask for 2 references and only accept references that look like this email@example.com After receiving a positive reference we then interview every teacher personally. If the teacher cannot supply genuine references and pass our interview we will not add them to our platform. We guarantee you the highest quality tuition at a fair price.
Please book a free consultation with a teacher and you will see within 2-3 minutes that you have a genuine teacher with IELTS examiner experience.
If the teachers are currently IELTS examiners they cannot advertise this - however we can say they have "British Council Experience"
Yes, they are all 1-to-1 private lessons via Skype or Whatsapp. Our teachers do not offer any group lessons. The teacher focuses on you and how to help you reach you band.
Having a Skype lesson is like having a teacher in the same room, you can use video and audio (we recommend to use headphones for a clearer sound) - some students only have audio which is fine. Another great advantage is the flexibility to choose the lessons when you want and also no travel costs!
