Hi, my name is Alex and I am an IELTS specialist from the UK. I have been helping students to prepare for the IELTS test for over 11 years. I have taught professionally in Japan, the Middle East, France, and the UK. I can you help you to develop your writing and speaking so that you will be able to achieve the band score you require.

Please just message me below to book your free 15 minute trial lesson!


I can help you if you are planning to take the general or academic IELTS test. I will start by understanding what score you need and then give you a task 1 or 2 essay to work on.

You can email this to me before the class, and we will look at your essay during the lesson.

Additionally, we will also write essays together during the lesson, and I will listen to your ideas and give you corrections, ideas, and techniques.

We will look at:

-How to brainstorm effectively. This is a key issue as so many of my students don’t understand the task 2 question ‘type’ and how to approach each type of question.  I will show you how to make a clear plan for each main body paragraph

-How to write a strong introduction using paraphrasing and conveying a clear thesis statement.

-Improving your grammar. I will identify and give you key exercises and explanations to boost your grammatical accuracy.

-I will show you how to write complex sentences for the task 1 and task 2. This will enable you to demonstrate sentence variety.

-I will teach you how to grade yourself, and think like an examiner.

-We will practice many task 1 essays (graphs/pie charts/line/bar graphs) and work on lots of task 2 questions.

-Teach you higher level vocabulary and sentence structures (comparing/contrasting) for task 1 and task 2.

Punctuation/spelling issues  (this is a big problem for many students).

I supply all the lesson materials and can give you many PDF’s for free. This includes many Cambridge books for IELTS reading/listening .

There are 3 parts to the speaking test and we will look at each part.

You will learn:

  • Idea generation and visualisation. We will practice lots of speaking questions; consequently, your fluency and ability to think of ideas quickly will improve.
  • How to use connectors and discourse markers for to sound more natural.
  • Identifying your grammatical mistakes and working on these problem areas. Grammar is one of the four aspects of the IELTS marking. I will give you lots of exercises and explanations so you can minimise your mistakes with tenses, articles, prepositions, conditionals, and much much more.
  • Key high band vocabulary for questions that come up again and again. This will impress the examiner and improve your vocubalary score. We will practice new vocabulary in different contexts.
  • To be prepared for all the common speaking topics. The more practice you have the more your fluency and speed of response will improve.
  • I will show you what a band 8/9 speaking answer feels like and show you how to speak more naturally and fluently
  • We will practice full mock tests exactly like the exam (part 1/2/3) so you can get familiar and confident with the test.
  • Teach you phrasal verbs and idioms
  • Some of my students need exercises to help reduce their native accent. I will show you pronunciation exercises for specific nationalities that you can practice.
