ExperienceMy name is Michael Davey and I am now offering individual and small group IELTS preparation classes in Blackburn, Melbourne.
I worked as a full time IELTS examiner from 2008 until December 2013, conducting over 5000 speaking tests and marking a similar number of writing papers over this period. With this experience I am obviously very familiar with the ways that IELTS examiners mark candidates and analyse language within the framework of the marking criteria. I am able to bring this knowledge into play to help my students in a highly specific and focussed fashion.
Before classes begin I offer a free 45 min consultation session in my office during which I assess your English level, put forward some preliminary ideas of how I can help you and, most importantly, listen to your experience of and concerns about the IELTS test. Through understanding your problems and talking about your goals I will put together a plan detailing how we can work together to make sure that you achieve the score you need.
Whilst my fees are relatively high I believe that the opportunity to study with an experienced examiner make my classes great value. This is because my experience gives me the capacity to identify quickly and precisely what you need to do to gain maximum improvement in your performance in the context of the IELTS marking criteria.
I am happy to work individually with students or with groups of two. There is no extra charge per person so coming together with a friend will make it much cheaper.
Fees: $90 per hour
HobbiesReading, music, drumming, snooker, cricket.
