Are you a teacher who needs to find out more about IELTS or how best to prepare your students? I can arrange workshops for small groups of teachers focusing on one or more of the 4 skills.
The most popular high stakes English test. In my experience Italians struggle the most with the two writing tasks. I can help you to identify your weaknesses as well as strengths so that you can work on these in your own time and at your own pace. This applies to all 4 parts of the test and not only the writing, should that be what you need.
Do you need to improve your English for pleasure? Do you need to get a better score at school. Let me know what you wish to achieve and I will advise you on the best course of action.
