Experienced IELTS Examiner, in Writing and Speaking. I know all the marking and assessment criteria, so can conduct accurate tests to evaluate candidates and provide training in your specific areas of weakness. (Normal IELTS training centres and native speaking English teachers cannot do this! So, you waste more time training, spend more money and have a much lower chance of achieving the grade you need! Don't just choose an IELTS trainer because of the low rate they charge, or because they are a well known English training centre!
MOST TRAINING CENTRES NORMALLY USE NON-NATIVE SPEAKING TRAINERS, WHO HAVE ONLY PASSED IELTS!! HIS IS BECAUSE THEY ARE MUCH CHEAPER TO EMPLOY AND GIVE THE TRAINING CENTRE A HIGHER PROFIT MARGIN, ON THE FEES YOU PAY, BUT OFFER YOU A LOWER CHANCE OF SUCCESS! IF THEY DO USE NATIVE SPEAKING TRAINERS, MOST ARE JUST NORMAL ENGLISH TEACHERS, WHO ONLY KNOW ABOUT IELTS FROM THE BOOKS THEY HAVE READ!)
My training is different to the normal IELTS training center, where they focus on memorizing answers and providing lists of recent questions.
I focus on teaching you exactly what the examiner is looking for and how you can deliver that. It is not about memorising set answers, but identifying how to deliver the correct response, whatever the question and are not relying on luck, and getting the right questions!
You are learning correct techniques, from an experienced IELTS examiner! However, unless you are already at a level of 4.5, I would not provide you with any training and would instead advise you to get more basic English language training from a Chinese teacher, which would be far more beneficial and cost effective.
Once you are at or above 4.5, then it would be worth using my tutoring services to progress to a higher level.
In addition to IELTS , I have 6 years English teaching in China. Most at South China Normal & Sun Yat sen Universities. My main focus has been on teaching English Teaching Majors. Furthermore, I have a Masters Degree in English Language Teaching, at Distinction level, from a British University.
Don't waste you time and money on sub-standard IELTS training, learn from an IELTS professional, and save your time and money, as well as increase your chances of getting the grade you are looking for!

In my spare time I enjoy listening to music and watching good movies. Although, I do also enjoy going for a walk, but generally only in the winter, here in Guangzhou.
