Learn how to speak like a true native English speaker. *IELTS/TOEFL tutoring available.
Experience: 5 years
Hello, my name is Colin, and I am originally from Illinois in the United States. I have over four years experience teaching English as a foreign language. I graduated from University of Illinois with a B.A. Psychology. I have lived in many places around the world, and I love traveling, and writing. I am a martial artist, and have a true passion for language acquisition! I have always had a passion for learning language, and speak two languages fluently. I know what it is like to learn a new language, and have the patience and passion to help you improve your English. I have experience teaching students from around the world to improve their spoken English, and I am sure I can do the same for you!
My classes are tailor made for each student. After a quick assessment of your English level we can begin your journey towards speaking closer and closer to the way a true native English speaker does. We can work together to improve your conversation skills, pronunciation, grammar, intonation, word order...anything to improve your English level. I have also helped many students achieve higher results in both the IELTS and TOEFL examinations.
I offer two kinds of classes, general English classes and test preparation. General English classes are suited to anyone wishing to generally raise their English level. I also offer IELTS and TOEFL prep classes.
English classes are 16 USD per 50 minutes.
I reccommend that students who wish to imrpove an IELTS band score should spend at least a few hours a week for a few months preparing for this exam.
In the IELTS preparation classes we will focus on the speaking and writing sections. You will gain the skills required to raise your IELTS band score.
In Speaking Part 1, I will help you learn how to:
- respond to section 1 style personal questions in an appropriate way
In Speaking Part 2, you will learn how to:
- prepare your speech: properly understand the questions, take the appropriate notes, and be ready to deliver your speech.
- answer the speech with the correct strategy to get the highest score.
In Speaking Part 3, you will learn how to:
- deal with conversation style questions
Included in each IELTS class is the correction of an essay paper. You send me the papers and I will send them back with the appropriate corrections and notes.
I offer one free 25 minute trial lesson. See my calendar for availability and to book a lesson. To reserve a class please send me a request through Buddy School. Thanks, and I hope to see you really soon! Colin
