Before i met Catherine, i had completed 2 IELTS tests, and had not achieved the eight that i needed to for my immigration to Australia. i had one 2 hour session with her for 4 weeks. Catherine is an amazing teacher, she put me at ease with all aspects of the test and explains each section in detail and helped me in the areas i was loosing marks to achieve the score i required. She is very professional and is able to tailor make the training session to your needs.
Thanks very much Catherine.
On my initial meeting Catherine was approachable, friendly and easy to talk to. We discussed what I wanted to gain from the lessons and she drew up a teaching program that suited me. I found the lessons structured and easy to follow. Catherine always made sure that I understood what I was learning.
I found her extremely professional, punctual and I can understand why she is an examiner.
I would definitely recommend Catherine to anyone who needs help with their English.
My immigration agent put me in touch with Catherine to help me with my IELTS test. After sending me some sample work to complete via email, Catherine marked my work and identified where I needed to improve to gain the mark of 8 that I required. The lesson was conducted via Skype which was very convenient and also good value for money. Once I had done the lesson I booked my test and ended up getting a 9! I cannot recommend Catherine enough for anyone who needs help with their English work
I would personally recommend using Catherine's services to help achieving your English language targets. She has a pleasant way of communicating and she did a great job in analysing my skills and pointing out ways to improve. Furthermore, she knows how examiners mark the exam, which I feel is crucial in getting the best possible result. Exams are relatively expensive so a few practice sessions with Catherine would be money wisely spent!
I contacted Catherine just a few weeks before my IELTS exam and got the first practise materials straight away, so she could see my level before we met. She was a brilliant teacher and she gave me an organised, well explained idea of what I need for my exam within only few sessions. In my opinion, before you take an exam it is important to get information from someone involved in IELTS testing because not everything you can learn from books - Catherine is an excellent choice!!! I got an 8!
I thought that being English, it was going to be easy to sit an English exam. That was before i knew what was involved.
The first essay I wrote for you was an IELTS score of less than 5.
After just 5 or 6 lessons with your expert tuition, I now have a much better knowledge of how to organise my work. My new average IELTS score of 8 is fantastic! and I would not have managed it without you.
I would recommend your expert help to anyone who needs to sit the IELTS exam.
I'm very happy because I've got the overall band score that I need for the MSc!!! 6.5!! :)
I would like to thank you for your classes and your time. I hadn't practised English for 2 years when I started classes with you and I believe that I wouldn't have had such good results without your help.
I have been having intensive lessons with Catherine, and I am totally satisfied with every single second. My pronunciation improved a lot, and also I felt more confident in the Speaking section. Catherine also provided me with a wide range of practices in order to improve my writing skills as well. I am definitely pleased with high-quality exercises and sincere effort from Catherine.
I recently sat my Ielts exam, prior to having lessons with Catherine I found myself struggling with the exam. But after spending some time with her going through what needed to be done, I found myself able to go into the exam confident I can achieve the score I need. Catherine is an Ielts pro and a super teacher, she makes the test clear and easy to understand.
Lessons with Catherine are a must especially if you are emigrating to Australia and need a level 7 or above.
Having classes with Catherine helped me a lot to get prepared for the IELTS. Her classes are totally focused on the skills you need for a good result. Also, she is very respectful and easy-going, and I really enjoyed each hour with her. I highly recommend her as a teacher for those who will take the exam.
