EducationIELTS Specialist Tutor
- British Born - IELTS Trainer for band 8+, PTE, OET and GAMSAT in Melbourne CBD
I'm a British Asian, grown up to become a master of English. Therefore I understand the difficulties in learning English as a non-native.
CELTA Certificate at Cambridge University
MSc Computing, BSc Mathematics, Operational Research and Statistics
ExperienceI teach FULL-TIME so expect a high level of service and support.
I am a British native speaker from the UK with postgraduate and teaching qualifications from Cambridge University.
Many students have obtained permanent residency, teacher or medical registration, and enrolled onto university courses with my help.
I also tutor Business English, ISLPR, GAMSAT, PTE and academic essay proofreading. I hold UK postgraduate degrees and previously worked as a manager. I have a wealth of experience and knowledge from my professional history.
I am an IELTS trained tutor and I work with IELTS examiners so I can teach you what they expect from a band 8-9 student, not a 6.5 student like most tutors.
For academic and university students, I also have an essay checking/proofreading service.
HobbiesI am fond of linguistics, writing, reading, herbal remedies, nutrition and health, traditional Chinese medicine, meditation, cooking and yoga.
I study many subjects in my spare time, mostly to do with natural healing, psychology, philosophy, and healthy eating. I have started specialising in dermatitis and diseases of the skin, especially among women. I also design websites, write blogs, a writer for several magazines and a musician.

Great! I score 6.5 from 4.5 IELTS. Good teacher. She teached me everything I know. She help me with finding job too. I am grateful.
Anna helped me with both IELTS and PTE. At first, I wasn't sure that her method would work but I realised that she was right. I had other tutors who gave me general help and tips but did not work. When Anna looked at my skills and taught me how to improve, I was so happy to see my score go up each time. I am a very lazy student and I know that I don't study very hard. Anna knew this and pushed me to work hard. In the end, I scored 84% in my PTE and then 6 months later, I got 8.5 in my IELTS from 6.5 (it was my first time doing PTE). My advice is to listen before you decide if her method works or not. I was very surprised. She is so different from any other tutor I have ever had in my life. I am happy to have found her.
Really helpful lessons. Did 4 weeks online with Anna and she helped get 7.5 from 6.0 in my writing. I don't think I have had any tutor who was as knowledgeable as her. She really knew my weaknesses and she helped me improve a lot. Thank you Anna! :D
I was recommended by a friend and I am very happy. I got band 8 in my IELTS after 3 months training from 6.5 in my writing and speaking. It is a miracle! She is a very busy teacher so you need to book quick but she is always trying to make time for everyone. A very kind, knowledgeable and effective tutor. She tells you exactly what you are doing wrong and how to correct it from day 1. I still use her techniques in my university writing. She is now helping me with my Thesis as now I can do my PhD here. Thank you so much Anna! :D
Really helpful tutor. I started with IELTS lessons but she told me about the PTE so we did this later. I am happy now because I passed so quickly. It is my first time with a tutor and it was a great experience. Thank you Anna.
I spent many months trying to pass PTE and Anna helped me very well. I have now passed and I can now move on with my life. Thank you from bottom of my heart.
Really happy! I just got my results in the post and I got band 7.5 from 5.5! Thank you Anna! You're the best! I recommend this tutor very much!
A really inspiring and amazing tutor. She helped me from day one and I felt the improvement. I only wish I found her sooner! I have wasted so much money with other tutors, they say they know IELTs but they don't know anything. So hard to find a good tutor these days. With Anna, I passed after 1 month. I had been taking lessons from many different tutors for over a year and have struggled to get band 8 until now! My dream came true. Anna really knows her stuff! Thank you for you patience and knowledge. x
Anna is so friendly, interesting, intelligent and smart teacher. She taught me very well and helped me with my IELTS studies. I kept getting band 6 for nearly 2 years and I was so depressed, nearly gave up. But then I asked Anna to help me and after 6 months, I got 8! :D I am sooooooooo happy to have found her! Thank you a million times! I can now live in this country as a Doctor. :D
The best tutor in Melbourne! I have looked all over Melbourne and I travel over an hour each day just to see her. Really helped me find my weaknesses and opened my eyes. I was so shocked with the information and knowledge I learnt from her courses. Made me angry at all the IELTS schools and some private tutors. They only take my money. Don't trust the schools! They waste money. Anna is also my friend. Thank you mam,
