Dear Students,

I've helped 1000's of students speak English more fluently and more confidently. My students learn how to write professionally so that they get the highest scores on the TOEFL, IELTS, and SAT.

I spent 10 years in Turkey and taught myself reading, writing, grammar, and speaking in Turkish. I appeared on several Turkish television programs as a guest expert.

If you're serious about getting the highest scores on your exams and communicating confidently in English, contact me now to schedule your first session.

All my best,

Ian

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.
