CAEL Tutor Online

Your CAEL Tutor Online can help you prepare for the CAEL Test, but you should know that this test is hard. Unlike CELPIP and IELTS, CAEL is not a pure language test. For many native Canadian students, the CAEL test is an alternative to high school English. They use it to complete their applications for further education at Canadian Universities.

Disadvantages of working with
a CAEL Tutor Online

The only real disadvantage to working with a CAEL Tutor Online is the available class times.

You can only schedule your classes between 10am and 9pm Eastern Standard Time. So, students in Moscow, Dubai, Israel, and India, etc. should expect to take their classes during their early evening when it’s between 10am and 12pm in Ottawa.

You can’t use your phone for your classes. The small size of phone screens makes it very difficult for you to participate in your class fully. In order to see my shared screen, you will need the full-sized monitor of a laptop, iPad, or computer monitor.

Different Ways of Using an Online IELTS Tutor

There are many ways of working with a tutor, and, over the years, I’ve experienced most of them.

Mario’s Style

Mario was very independent with his test preparation. He had a very clear idea of how he wanted to prepare and exactly how much time he could afford to spend with me.

At the beginning of his preparation, we spent an hour together every two weeks. Before every class, he’d send me an essay so that we could go through it together and clarify any areas that would lose him points in the test.

After that, he’d spend two weeks practicing and strengthening those things. Occasionally, he’d submit an essay for correction so that I could confirm that he had understood and was improving.

During the last two weeks before his exam, Mario increased his classes to twice a week. Talking to me twice a week made him feel very confident about his test, and he got his score without any further fuss.

Diana’s Style

As the mother of two teenagers, Diana knew that she wouldn’t be ready for her test unless she carved out specific times to work on her IELTS preparation. Therefore, right from the start, Diana wanted two classes every week. She was as reliable as clockwork, submitting her homework within a couple of days so that I could see she was on the right track!

Diana would write, and send me, an essay before each class so that the things she’d had difficulty expressing were fresh in her mind when we got together.

Before class, I’d group her errors into similar issues, and then, we’d spend our class time tackling those problems and identifying alternative ways of expressing the ideas she’d had trouble with.

By the time her exam came around, Diana was ready and confident that she would be able to score all the points she needed to get her IELTS score.

Petr’s Style

Petr was lovely, but he didn’t want to do any of his studying by himself. He wanted to do everything in class. In other words, we wrote essays together, went through practice exercises together, had conversations about different topics together, worked on his grammar and sentence variety together, etc. In other words, Petr didn’t spend much time working on his language skills alone.

From my perspective, as his tutor, he was challenging because at the end of the day, Petr needed to internalize the work that we did together. Before we could be sure he would get his score, everything we were studying together had to become part of his English.

Eventually, Petr became confident enough to start doing some simple things by himself as long as I broke them down into small tasks. For example, he’d take one tense for a walk through the park and use it to describe everything he saw, smelled, heard, or touched.

Petr and I spent a lot of time together and became firm friends. Today, he is a Canadian citizen and lives in Winnipeg.
