Hi, and welcome to IELTS-Kate.com!
My name is Kate. I am an English Skype tutor specialising in preparing my students for the IELTS test.
I have been teaching IELTS to English language learners worldwide (including China, Brazil, Spain, South Korea and Russia) since 2012 and love teaching online lessons. I created ielts-kate.com to teach the vocabulary that native speakers really use so that my students can maximise their IELTS speaking and writing scores.
I dedicate my time to online IELTS tutoring, learning Chinese and doing voluntary work.
I am a qualified IELTS tutor who has trained to teach IELTS with the British Council. I have also trained as a language coach on a course informed by neuroscience and know how to keep the brain calm when learning. My students thoroughly enjoy their lessons and get high band scores in IELTS.
ONLINE IELTS TEACHER
Why You Should Work With Me
I created this website to help all individuals looking at taking the IELTS test prepare, practice, and improve their band scores. Throughout my career, I have helped students who have wanted to take IELTS in preparation for study in the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States, as well as people who have wanted to emigrate to Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
My conversation skills have not always been my strongest attribute. In the past, I was too shy even to talk with a stranger!
However, after honing and practising my communication skills through travelling and doing volunteer work, and finally joining and then running a public speaking club, I became more confident and now speak in front of large groups of people without hesitation.
My experiences and growth in communication have given me more than just confidence; they made me extraordinarily patient and understanding of the fact that sometimes, it is difficult for a person to express themselves. My main goal in our tutoring sessions is that you are comfortable and calm. I believe I have a unique understanding that can help you turn into a confident English speaker, too.
In addition to perfecting my communication skills, I have worked in many roles; I retired from IT, then worked as an independent advocate for people in NHS hospitals, and finally, as an online English teacher specialising in IELTS. I have developed excellent analytical skills. These skills allow me to notice what needs to change about your English and give you high-quality feedback.
My students are busy people with careers who are studying English in their spare time. Because of this, I aim for them to work smarter, not harder. We will first analyse the mistakes you make most often together with what you are not doing now that you must be doing by the time of the exam to get a higher IELTS band score. Then, based on the gap between these two things and the time you have available for study, we will make a plan for you to achieve the band score you need.
I teach online via Skype. You can find my Skype contact information right on the homepage.
This website is full of excellent study tools that will help you prepare to take the IELTS test for the first time or improve your score if you have taken it already. On this website, you will find relevant examples, for example, my idioms course, which teaches idioms you can use in every IELTS test. I offer both one-to-one and group online IELTS classes and a blog with tips for maximising your band score.
My goal is to make sure you do fantastically well on the IELTS test!
