A Little bit more about me

Our Story

After 6 years of teaching IELTS at some of the most recognized Language Schools in HCMC, I quickly realized that, in general, the quality of preparation and training provided, was not good enough to achieve higher than average scores.

The three biggest problems with studying IELTS at language schools is that the majority of the instructors are not seasoned IELTS teachers. Next, the syllabuses are designed more to complete a course on time rather than to teach the most essential skills to achieve the highest exam scores. In other words, teachers teach from books, they don’t teach to the descriptors. Lastly, not enough time is devoted to teaching specific skills as they relate to the exam.

With IELTS at Will Academy you will receive the personal attention of a tutor because that is what I do. Even with small classes of 10 or fewer, I provide individual attention when and where needed.

With many years of experience in teaching IELTS, he not only taught me English but also the art of taking this difficult exam. He helped me become more aware of what examiners are looking for in each section of the test, and knowing this, I’m in a much better position to showcase my English skills. He always has his student’s best interest at heart, and will structure to lesson plan to take into consideration his student’s strengths and weaknesses, helping them improve in the shortest time frame. He’s also very friendly and easy-going, which makes lessons with him very enjoyable. Again, I would like to sincerely thank you for all your help Will!
