As your CAEL Tutor, I can help you prepare for the CAEL English Test.

Getting a high score in this language test can be tricky, but I’ll show you lots of tips, tricks and techniques that help.

As your CAEL Tutor, I can help you prepare for the writing and/or speaking sections of the CAEL Test.

If you’re just days away from your test, you may find that a two-hour class with your CAEL Tutor helps to remind you about the little things that make such a huge difference to your final score. Your class will focus on the fixing the little things that could prevent you from achieving your desired score. While those errors tend to be unique to each student, common problem areas that quickly reduce your score include:

  • missing verbs – especially with tenses that combine an auxiliary verb with a participle
  • missing agreements – particularly the ‘d’ in the past tense
  • missing plurals – that’s the ‘s’ that you have to add to plural nouns
  • missing articles – they’re important!
  • inadequate sentence variety – examiners love BIG FAT juicy nouns
  • inadequate language efficiency
  • incorrect punctuation – it’s essential!
  • too many conjunctive adverbs – yes, you can have too many!
  • too few complex sentences – most writing and speaking needs more of them
  • too few referents – examiners hate repetition
  • confused adjectives when describing feelings and situations – you simply have to get those right
  • confusion over when to use a gerund or an infinitive – it matters!

If you have several problem areas, you should expect to need more than one class. There’s a limit to how much your brain can take in!

Disadvantages of working with an Online IELTS Tutor

The only real disadvantage to working with an IELTS 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.
