About the Course

This course is designed for people aiming for a required IELTS level for progression in the NHS, Postgraduate and other HE study or any route where IELTS is required.

It is suitable for those working towards Academic or General IELTS.

What is IELTS?

The international English language testing system (IELTS) is the world’s most popular English language proficiency test for higher education and global migration, with over 2.5 million tests taken last year.

IELTS is approved by the UK Government for your UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) application. It is accepted as proof of your English language ability by Universities, colleges and business organisations. Whatever your plans for life in the UK, IELTS is the test you need.

IELTS measures your reading, writing, listening and speaking skills, and assesses your ability to communicate for work, study or life in an English-speaking country.

Which course do I need?

This course is suitable for people working to 5.5 or above.

If you are below 5.5, you need to enrol to our Preparation for IELTS (Foundation).

Over this 12 week course, I will prepare you for the exam and help you develop and consolidate your English language skills for professional use.

Please note, you will need to book your exam through IELTS near to the end of the course.


The course costs £1500 for 8 sessions over 8  weeks. Each lesson runs for two hours.

About the Tutor








After graduating from UEA in, I decided to explore the world and teach English, living and working in France, Italy, The Czech Republic and Argentina respectively, as well as travelling to the countries nearby. I returned to the UK ten years ago and since then I have enjoyed teaching students from all over the world. I have experience teaching all ages, all levels and many different types of courses, at Universities and language schools. Courses included EAP, ESAP, exam preparation courses (particularly IELTS and FCE), in addition to Business and General English.
