1-to-1 Zoom IELTS courses


My name is Tim Hicks. I have been an IELTS Teacher and a Writing and Speaking Examiner for over 25 years.

My Online English Language lessons have helped thousands of students achieve their goals because I can show you exactly what you need to do to achieve a high band in the IELTS Certification test. The quickest and best way to raise your band is private 1-to-1 tuition. Our lessons will focus on your exact needs and help you develop specific areas. These could include Listening, Reading, Writing, Speaking, and also Grammar and Vocabulary for IELTS

All our private lessons will be recorded so you can see them again and again.

Let’s meet on Zoom and chat about your IELTS experience, your level and we can make a really great plan to reach your target.
