IELTS tutor (former examiner) available for exam preparation classes. Around 97% of my students pass first time with Band 7 or higher!

Methodology

*** Use my experience as an IELTS examiner to help you pass your exam! ***

If you need to pass IELTS quickly, then look no further as 98% of my students pass the test with Band 7, or higher!

My name is Lee and I am a friendly and qualified teacher of English and a former IELTS examiner. Let me help you to achieve a score of Band 7 or more on your IELTS exam with a tailored course for your specific needs. I can offer tuition and exam preparation support and share with you my techniques to help you to pass the tests.

As well as making my teaching enjoyable, I am able to use my insights from working as an IELTS examiner to make sure you meet the precise IELTS marking criteria in order to get the best Band score possible. I have extensive knowledge of the tests and know what examiners look for in a good answer. Let me use this experience to help you to pass your IELTS exam.

We will start with an assessment of your current level of English and your particular needs. Then, I can go on to plan a course which will strengthen your skills and address your areas of weakness.

I am very experienced in assisting students who need to obtain IELTS very quickly owing to visa, emigration or higher education course requirements. I can provide intensive courses which fit around existing test date bookings.

***DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE FOR BLOCK BOOKINGS*** - please ask for details.

Courses can be tailored around the following skill areas:

LISTENING
Lots of practice using exam-style questions which use a variety of accents. Emphasis is given to all four parts of the listening test in including conversations and following academic lectures.

WRITING
How to structure your task 1 report and task 2 essay. How to describe and analyse graphs, tables and charts. Understanding diagrams and maps. Writing letters and expressing ideas clearly. Checking and correcting your work.
ALL WRITING LESSONS INCLUDE ESSAY CORRECTION AND FEEDBACK.

READING
Techniques to save you time under pressure. How to scan a text for the information you need. Skills to help you answer True/False/NG and Yes/No/NG questions. Support to help you deal with the matching headings questions, short-answer, table completion and multiple choice questions.

SPEAKING
Lots of practice on all 3 parts of the speaking exam. How to structure a response. Articulation and pronunciation. Improving Lexical Resource.

All of the materials you will need are provided, hence there will be no need for you to purchase any additional course or textbooks. Band 9 answers are also supplied to you for all of the writing tasks.

I will be happy to answer any questions you have.

Lee is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!

Experience

I worked as an IELTS examiner for more than 3 years and now use the knowledge, skills and experience from that position to help students to pass the test quickly and with high scores. I've been offering 1-1 coaching for a considerable period of time and know exactly what the examiners want to see in good answers.

Many of my former students had taken the test multiple times or had a number of teachers, all of whom failed to help them, prior to approaching me. Rather than just being a general English teacher, I was able to demonstrate to all of those students that I am an IELTS specialist with in-depth knowledge of the tests. I have helped dozens and dozens of people to succeed, many with scores higher than they actually needed. If I can help them then I am sure I can help you too!

Perfect! I had a very good first lesson. I like Lee's approach. Its very structured. He explains well and is very calm which is good, especially in my situation when I am trying to fit so many things in such litttle time. Would recommend Lee as an IELTS tutor.

Lee's response

Elena is a keen and enthusiastic student who left the lesson with a smile. She reported that she learnt quite a number of things in the lesson which was great to hear. See you for lesson 2!

Lee said he would help me improve my score and he did. Especially with reading and writing where I really struggled. Within 6 months my score improved significantly by one band. Lee knows all the important Ielts skills and explains it simply, he also gives material to practise those skills and then later you can use them on practise exams and see a huge improvement. After the first time we practiced reading skills and I did a reading test, I got 6 more marks than previously. In writing Lee introduced all the different types of Task 1’s and essays. He showed how to write a good overall which is vital to achieve a good band in IELTS. Lee explained me in just one lesson how to structure writing task 1 and 2. Then we went into all the details. IELTS it’s not only testing your English it’s also all about how to do the exams. Lee definitely knows all about it and he kept his promises. I am very grateful how I improved from a band 6 to overall 7 in such a short time. Thank you Lee. You are a great teacher and I can highly recommend him to everyone who really needs to improve their IELTS score.

I strongly recommend "LEE MURRAY" to anyone who needs support for the IELTS exam. He is a former IELTS examiner from the UK, but it is possible to take your lessons online no matter where you live. Lee spots his student's needs and gives all the needed tips and information.

I had problems in reading and writing and after taking 3 unsuccessful exams luckily I found Lee. I sent him an email and he responded so quickly. Then he offered a free consultation online session that helped me a lot to discuss my situation and needs. In only six lessons he taught me very useful strategies and tips that I could get my desired score.
Lee is very professional, patient, and explains everything so simply. His lessons are well-organized and well-structured. If you do not want to waste your time and money, then Lee Murray is the best choice for you.

Thanks a lot again to dear Lee.

Lee was a perfect teacher. I had to reach a high mark in my IELTS test and, after having identified my weaknesses, he gave me all the instruments required to achieve my goal. He is a really competent teacher, he knows exactly how does an English certification work and he helped me to understand marking criteria, in order to perform consequently in a proper way. In addition, he double-checked my work with accuracy, time management, clarity, providing a great feedback and good material to practice. I would definitely recommend his lessons to all.

Even though English was my first language, I was struggling to achieve a 7.0 score in the writing section of my IELTS. I had taken help from various tutors, but none were able to help me improve my grade from the 6.5, which I was stuck at. During those troubled times, I came across reviews of Mr. Murray and decided to give it a try for the single reason that he was previously an IELTS invigilator.
Within the first meeting itself I came to know he would be the right person to guide me. He suggested a diagnostic test, based on which he designed his lesson for my need, rather than using a standard structure for every student. He made me understand the requirements of the test and his lessons covered every type of question, to make sure I was confident in attempting those essays. Within a week, even my friends who were helping me with my writing subtest, saw a massive difference in my work. Although we were in different locations and timings, he organized the schedules perfectly even when he had other things to deal with in his personal life. He is a dedicated teacher and will make sure his students achieve their required score without fail, and I am a living proof for this.
After an 8 month struggle I was finally able to clear my IELTS with ease, all thanks to Lee's lessons and constant encouragement. If you consider IELTS an hurdle, fear no more, Lee is the right man to help you realize this test is a walk in the park.

I was tutored by Lee Murray for IELTS (Academic). Apart from his experience in all aspects of the exam as a previous IELTS examiner, he was supportive and encouraging at all times. Lee really understands the needs of his students and adapts lessons accordingly. Choose him as your teacher as you will not be disappointed.

I would definitely recommend Lee to other students who need to pass the test quickly and with a high score. I needed 7.5 in writing but could not get past 7 even though I tried several times. Some lessons with Lee were just what I needed as he explained what the examiners were looking for in good answers. Thanks to him, I was able to register with the GMC and become a doctor in the UK!

Brilliant teacher! I struggled for a long time before a friend told me about Lee but within only a few lessons, my score in writing improved to Band 7.

Lee is an excellent teacher who helped me to achieve my desired score in Writing in just 2 lessons . I was stuck with 6.5 in Writing over few years and also wasted alot of money on other online resources and private tuitions before I approached Lee. On the initial assessment session Lee pointed out my mistakes and guided me to improve my writing style. He has very good patience explains until it is clear to you and never hesitated to clarify any doubts. His friendly approach and respect towards the me (students) helped me to concentrate well and attend the lesson in much relaxed Way.The study materials provided by were my BIBLE and I just followed his notes. My suggestion to Ielts aspirants, No could guide you through the right path to reach your destiny.
