Private Online IELTS - International English Language Testing System Tutoring in Halifax

If you're a working professional interested in developing your ability to do business in English-speaking countries or an international student who'd like to attend a school like Dalhousie University, get in touch with Varsity Tutors to find IELTS tutoring in Halifax. The IELTS, or International English Language Testing System, is an English proficiency exam used in the United Kingdom, United States, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and other countries. The exam comes in two forms: The IELTS Academic, which is taken by those interested in studying in English-language schools, and the IELTS General Training, which emphasizes the use of English in social situations and business. Regardless of your goals, Nova Scotia IELTS tutors can provide you with personalized instruction.

Both forms of the IELTS follow the same three-hour, four-section structure. You'll be required to move through the Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing sections of the exam. The Listening section will ask you to listen to recordings of English language conversations and monologues. You'll then answer questions relating to these auditory passages, and will have to show your ability to discern the central point of each recording, the tone and purpose of the speakers, and perform other similar tasks. An IELTS tutor in Halifax can drill you with practice questions to acclimate you to this section, as well as suggest note-taking methods that you can use to keep track of the pertinent points of each passage as you listen.

The Speaking section is conducted with an examiner, who you'll speak with one-on-one. You'll first be asked to introduce yourself to your examiner by answering questions about your family, work, hobbies, and so on, and will then have to speak at length about a provided topic. This section concludes with a discussion between you and your examiner, usually about the subject that you've just been asked to speak about. Using your spoken English in a testing environment can be stressful, but Halifax IELTS tutoring can be a great way to get some additional practice in. Your mentor can run you through a simulated example of the Speaking section and critique your English usage and pronunciation, giving you pointers to use when you sit for the exam.

The Reading section will provide you with three passages, or sets of passages, which you'll have to read and then respond to. Your written answers will be judged not only on how well they address the questions at hand but also on their grammar and spelling. A Halifax IELTS tutor can teach you active reading techniques that you can use to absorb the questions quickly and thoroughly, and help you work on your grammatical usage to ensure that you feel well-prepared come test day.

The Writing section requires you to complete two compositional tasks in English. First, you'll write at least 150 words in 20 minutes. You'll then write at least 250 words in 40 minutes. Writing a cogent essay can be a challenge at the best of times, and particularly nerve-wracking under time pressure. However, Halifax IELTS tutoring can give you the opportunity to with an expert who can show you how to rapidly outline your answers to get your thoughts in order before you begin writing. They can also provide feedback on your work which you can use to improve your subsequent compositions.

An IELTS tutor in Halifax can assist you as you develop your overall test-taking skills too. Whether you're interested in learning relaxation and focusing techniques that you can use to combat test anxiety or want to develop your time management skills to make sure you don't lose track of time during your exam, Nova Scotia IELTS tutors can assist you.
