Well-known global coach and former examiner Zooms you to success in IELTS

Methodology

My coaching methodology is based on extensive knowledge of learning styles and methodologies as an ESL teacher and trainer, and as a former HR Director. When coaching for high stakes eg to achieve particular IELTS scores for visa or professional registration purposes, I work with my clients to identify areas of focus through e.g. error analyses in practice tests.

My coaching approach includes building time management skills, confidence and in-depth understanding of IELTS methodology and expectations gained through many years of one-on-one sessions in different language and cultural settings.

Background

A former IELTS examiner (9 years) and ESL academic trainer (MA Applied Linguistics) with executive coaching qualifications, I have expanded my practice internationally through Zoom and other platforms to deliver successful IELTS/PTE test scores for visa, academic and professional registration purposes.

I coach one-on-one for particular success in English Writing and Speaking, sourcing practice materials online and from my own resources tailored to busy clients' needs..

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $75/h

Details

I work in Zoom/online Packages of 10 contact hours (usually 5x2 hrs a week), plus 2.5 hours of marking GT and Academic Writing tests, locating and scanning practice tests/online IELTS resources for busy clients. I have also had some success with 90 minute sessions over a longer period - Zoom can be tiring!

I invoice clients (AU$750) in advance at the second coaching session of the Package. You will need a laptop/monitor with Zoom access, scanning capability for sending me your written responses (eg Scannable on your phone) and a printer.
