About Ian

Ian is a graduate of Northwestern University who has spent more than 11 years teaching English to students, professionals, and even celebrities, and politicians in Istanbul. He's an experienced writer and the coach of many successful TOEFL and SAT students who have got into and received scholarships from their first-choice schools.

Ian has also worked with 100's more professional clients who have won promotions and are now working at the top level of their industries.

"Working with Ian has been really amazing. He shows us that we know more than we think we do. He helps us become aware of our potential."
- Gökhan Öker, Istanbul

He has helped 1000's of students learn to speak English more fluently and more confidently - and he is also known for helping students increase their scores quickly on the TOEFL, IELTS, and SAT examinations.

While living in Turkey, Ian taught himself to read, write, and speak Turkish fluently. He said he was 'tired of seeing hard-working, professional people go to English courses, study for many hours - but still struggle to speak English!'

That's why he decided to create the 'English Confidence Program' - to help students achieve success in communicating fluently and confidently in English.

If you're serious about getting the highest scores on your exams and improving your English skills, please contact Ian to schedule a preliminary interview.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

Experienced and qualified ESL instructor

IELTS

I have completed training for tutoring students preparing for the IELTS. I have also successfully coached more than 20 students who received 6.5 or higher on the IELTS exam. My approach is to evaluate which areas the students need the most improvement in, focus on specific tactics to improve those areas, and then develop total fluency to boost scores in all 4 areas (reading, writing, speaking, listening).

TOEFL

Experienced and qualified TOEFL instructor

Turkish

I spent 10 years in Turkey, studying the language, speaking with people, and running my own business. I can read, write, understand, and speak the language fluently. I coach people to understand Turkish customs and act appropriately in business and social situations in Turkey. I also help tourists learn key phrases to help them on their travels.
