Anything else that you’d like to share?

The reason I know how to help you with your IELTS preparation is because if you’re taking the IELTS test then you’re most likely a non-native English speaker like me and so I see English through your lenses, I understand your challenges, have worked through and surmounted them. I have also personally prepared for and written the IELTS General Training & Academic Modules myself so I don’t teach out of head knowledge but practical experience. I know what it’s like to prepare for the test and actually execute it perfectly. I understand the feelings of examination pressure, nervousness, fear and overconfidence. I have come out with a Band 8.5 in both Writing and Speaking tests and Band 9 in Reading and Listening tests. Again, I have been preparing students for the IELTS test in Abu Dhabi for the past 5 years. My students come from all over the world - South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and of course the Middle East. I draw from my students’ experiences and help you avoid many mistakes. Finally, I have completed a Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) from the University of Sunderland in the UK, received professional training on teaching IELTS from British Council, taking several teaching CPDs, and I’m a UAE Certified Online Educator.

In my words

My teaching style

Task/Practice Based Learning. I believe that practice makes perfect. What you do becomes what you know so with me there’s always ample opportunity for practice and skill development.

What can you expect from my lessons?

Positive energy, motivation, proven strategies, tailored advice, experience sharing, lots of practice and constructive feedback

Why me?

When you join me in a session for IELTS preparation, I won’t bore you with trying to impress you unnecessarily and make you learn brand new things in such a short time. You’ll feel relaxed, we’ll have fun and I’ll maximise your time and investment by going straight to the point, elaborating on your strengths, showing you how to improve on your weaknesses effectively and guiding you on how to use what you already know in new ways so that you can prepare smarter and faster for the IELTS test (which you’ll ace by the way)

Why I’m passionate about this?

I think its innate. I was born with a burning passion for teaching and helping others ‘get it.’

What else I can do?

At no extra cost, I can also help you with a likely band score for your IELTS Speaking or Writing mock test .
