British Native

Hi, my name is Taraneh. I have taught English whilst living in China over the last seven years to people of mixed abilities and nationalities. Four years ago, I became an IELTS examiner for the British Council where I gained a much greater understanding of what examiners will be looking for during the speaking test and as they mark the writing scripts.
Based on my experience, I have developed sound study and exam taking tips that my students have found useful to boost their IELTS score and I look forward to helping you too.
Message me below with a day/time for a lesson and I can explain how I can help you in detail.

  • Friendly Tutor

Use my knowledge as an examiner to help you raise your IELTS score quickly!


After an initial trial lesson,  I will design lessons to highlight your problem areas so that we can work on strengthening your skills and address areas of weakness. So often, I have seen students waste time just repeating test papers, without identifying and focusing on areas that need to be improved.

No matter your level, be confident that I will work with you to improve your band score whilst making the lessons enjoyable.

It is important to get the best results for your time and money spent. Let me show you how I can help you pass with the score you need.



I will show you exactly how to structure your Part 1 / 2 essays and give you examiner band descriptors to show you exactly how to get your desired score.

I will show you the best way to describe and analyse tables,charts, maps, graphs, and how to write a Part 2 essay clearly and logically.

You will always receive a complete detailed check of each essay and I will show you exactly what you need to do to improve giving you homework for any grammatical issues you may have.


We will look at all 3 parts and I will give you lots of practice especially on topics you are not confident talking about. I will show you how to articulate your ideas clearly and logically and will corect and address any issues you may have with grammar or pronunciation.

Reading and Listening

I can offer hints and tips and practice exercises that will contribute to developing competency in these areas quickly.


I will supply materials for the lessons and show you model answers, Please message me below – I look forward to helping you!



I am CELTA certified through International House, London, and became a certified IELTS examiner 4 years ago.  I hold a degree in IT (UK) an EMBA  (South Africa) and am a certified project manager (USA). Currently, I am studying for a doctoral degree in Peace Studies, linking education as a primary contributor to sustainable development and peace.

Over the last 15 years, I have taught adults various courses and in the last seven years, my teaching has focused on English as a second language for general, medical and professional purposes. More recently in China, I have taught classes of 30 plus students as well as working with smaller groups of 4 or less, to prepare for the IELTS and BEC exams, as well as help doctors and nurses, prepare for a 3-6 month assignment in an English-speaking country.  I have also taught English for Academic Purposes at university level and General English.

My best is one-on-one or smaller groups as this is where you can really get to know each other and feel as if you are helping.  I have often not just taught English but also become an integral part of the whole planning process of an adventure overseas.

My years as an examiner have really helped me to know what to look for and guide my students to give them the best chance to reach their goal.

Taraneh is a superb and knowledgeable teacher, one of the best I’ve ever had by far. She was extremely understanding and patient during all our lessons, and she always tried to go above and beyond to help me achieve my goal and make me feel more confident. It was a pleasure to work on my English together and witness improvements throughout my studies. So, for anyone who wants to either take the Ielts( or any other test) or simply improve his/her English, Taraneh is the one to whom ask for help. Thank you so much for everything, Taraneh!

Tanareh was just the sort of person my daughter Robin needed.Her ability to focus on the weak segment of the IELTS Academic and quel the rising panic as the test approached was key to my daughter passing the exam, level 8 with just 6 lessons on the clock. Without Tanareh's calm, measured and analytical approach, I think we would have been lost. She is a credit to the IELTS teaching fraternity. Tanareh, thankyou once again from both of us.

I passed with 7 overall, Thanks
