Private IELTS Tutoring

IELTS (International English Language Testing System) Tutoring from MyGuru is a customized experience featuring 1-1 instruction from an expert IELTS tutor. We offer in-person IELTS tutoring as well as online IELTS tutoring. Students will be asked to use Official IELTS materials and complete a series of practice questions before the first session to help identify strengths and weaknesses.

About the IELTS Exam

As you may know,  there are two types of IELTS test to choose from, IELTS Academic or IELTS General Training. The tests have the same Listening and Speaking sections but different Reading and Writing tests. The IELTS Academic test is for individuals applying for higher education or some sort of professional registration in a primarily English speaking environment. This test is associated with academic language rather than everyday vernacular.  The IELTS General Training exam is meant for people going to English speaking countries for work or training programs. It is a requirement for migration to Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK. 

Each test is made up of four sections: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing.  It uses a score from 1 to 9 to indicate level of expertise in the English language.

Our Approach to Private IELTS Prep

The first tutoring session is always diagnostic. It involves a review of the student’s performance on IELTS practice questions, an overview of the test, and development of a personalized study plan.  This is followed by a series of ~1 hour tutoring sessions in which concepts are reviewed, strategies for each section of the test are discussed, and practice problems are completed. Our most popular package provides a total of 15 hours of customized, 1-on-1 IELTS tutoring. However, a customized study plan can be built around any amount of hours. The exact number of ideal hours of tutoring for any given student is highly variable.

Of course, MyGuru also offers hourly IELTS tutoring – just fill out the form below or email us at to discuss your situation.
