Hi. I'm a specialist IELTS tutor living in Bristol.
I'm a fully qualified, native English tutor of IELTS and English as a Foreign Language (EFL) to adults. I mostly teach online but I can also teach face to face in the Bristol area.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
English as a Foreign Language (General English and Business English).
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a BA (Hons) degree in Product Design, a Trinity Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (DipTESOL) and a Trinity Diploma in ELT Management (DELTM).
What kind of experience do you have?
For the last 5 years, I have run my own online English language school teaching online and face to face. Before that I was a Director of Studies for 3.5 years which involved managing a team of teachers and the academic department of a large language school in Bristol with up to 900 students. I have also taught in schools as a teacher and teacher trainer in Bristol and Guinea, West Africa.

Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I teach English online using Skype or Zoom. You need a computer, headset or microphone on your computer, broadband Internet and a Skype account (free). Please contact me to arrange a time to meet online for a free analysis of your needs and for more information about how my online lessons can help you.

I am a member of the Tutors' Association.
Tell me about some of your current students.
A lot of my current IELTS students are medical professionals who want to register for the GMC to practise medicine in the UK. I often focus on the writing and speaking parts of the academic exam to help students get the required 7.5 overall band score.
Do you have a personal message for students?
If you want to take the IELTS exam for the first time or have already taken it but didn't get the score you need, I can help you. During my lessons, I focus on specific skills and strategies to increase your level in all four skills (Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening).
