I taught for 4 years in an English secondary school, preparing pupils for public examinations in French and Spanish up to A level.

You will be excited to hear that I improved my IELTS score. This time I scored an overall 8.5 with Listening and Reading scores to be 9.0, Writing 8 (!) and Speaking, as usual, 7.5. Once more, I would like to thank you for your efforts. It is more than obvious that the help I received from you was more and more beneficial week by week.

After 2 unsuccessful tries at passing my ielts exam, needed for Australia, I contacted Timothy walker. I'm really glad I did because with his help,me and my family are now thrilled that we can now apply for our visa . Anyone needing better results, Timothy is well worth visiting for tuition.
