IELTS

Before I joined WyzAnt, I was already holding tutorial sessions in IELTS, with four students from the Middle East on homestay in the U.S. and who were enrolled in Intrax International Institute in Chicago. All four students have since passed the required target band levels to gain admission into U.S. universities. I taught the four basic language skills (listening, reading, writing, and speaking) with increasing concentration on speaking module in both academic and general versions of IELTS exam. Like all other tutorial tasks, I coached my students on strategies, techniques and tips to improve their task solving speed and efficiency and gain the necessary confidence in demonstrating their levels of English proficiency. I also introduced the students to the different accents and speaking styles of English native speakers -- IELTS being a United Kingdom/England type of exam, and compared with US residents' manner of speaking. Along with standard lessons, my students participated in practice tests on the four skills, after which time we assessed answers, launched interactive discussions, taped mock interviews for later critiquing and always, incorporated new words and phrases into their vocabulary lists.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
