« Perfect! I was so impressed with her teaching methodology, it's totally different from what anyone else teaches, even the British Council courses dont offer this much valuable information and one to one support. I just got my June 1 results and I can't believe it, I got 7.5 in Reading 8 in Writing 8 in Speaking and 8.5 in Listening - All thanks to you ma'am!!! I tried to take the test two times but I did not get the 8777 i wanted before I found her. I must say she is the best IELTS teacher out there! »

British Council and Paragon expert (CELTA, IELTS, YLE, CELPIP certified) offers premium, personalised IELTS/LSAT Reading/CELPIP/TOEFL lessons online.

Methodology

My lessons are carefully planned and I am extremely observant - I pick up minute details that most tutors miss, which helps me understand exactly what area of language or grammar you're struggling with.

MOST - if not all - "IELTS teachers" have little to no knowledge of the English language - they're not qualified to help you. Anyone can be an "IELTS teacher" and read from a Cambridge IELTS 12; that doesn't make them an expert. So don't waste your time and money on a regrettable experience - come to me and I will show you exactly what you need to do to achieve an 8777.

All lessons are individualized and adapted to suit your needs. My lessons are individually delivered and you won't be a part of a group - you get full attention during your session!

I tutor online and accept students of all ages and abilities.
I use Skype/FaceTime/Hangouts/Zoon to teach, and am available at almost any time suited to your preference - from 7 AM to 11:15 PM IST!

The foundation IELTS course comprises of 88 lessons (23 live IELTS lessons, over 65 banked grammar lessons and an endless amount of material for review and practice). It runs for two months, but there is a fast-track option available for those of you who have already booked an exam date.
The course also includes access to over 40 full practice tests, analysis and correction for 5 essays and 3 letters/reports, and access to materials and books for working on your grammar and lexical ability.

A more intensive IELTS course, consisting of 34 live lessons (99 lessons in total), is also available for those who have received scores of Band 5.5 to Band 6 and under in any module. This course includes all of the above-mentioned things, but analysis and correction is offered for 9 essays and 5 letters/reports.

This is a tried-and-tested method of exam prep that has PROVEN results - many of my students have secured band 8 on average, and everyone who follows my study plan gets the magic score of 8777. I will teach you things NO other tutor is even aware of; that's exactly why I'm an expert on the IELTS.

Background

I am a native English speaker, and have been teaching English for the past 8 years. I possess an innate knowledge of the intricacies of the English language and can effortlessly guide you towards your language learning goals.

I have a Bachelor's degree and have a CELTA certificate from Cambridge University's ESOL department. In addition to this, I have been trained by the British Council to teach IELTS exam classes, and by Paragon Testing Enterprises to teach CELPIP exam classes; I am the only qualified and trained CELPIP instructor in India. I have also been awarded and have had my merits recognised by former IAS officers.

Rates

Rate for online classes : ₹390/hr

Details

Fees remain the same for all individual students.

An 88 lesson (135+ hours in total; live lessons and banked lessons) one-on-one IELTS foundation course costs merely Rs. 8699 and is inclusive of ALL material, homework, and essay/letter/report correction and analysis (for up to 8 letters/essays/reports).

The 99 lesson (180+ hours in total; live lessons and banked lessons) one-on-one IELTS course costs 12999 and is inclusive of ALL material, homework, and essay/letter/report correction and analysis (for up to 14 letters/essays/reports).

These are the ONLY courses in the world that have been designed according to research and are the ONLY online courses on the internet that offer this much time and teacher support. Other institutes charge you more than this just to sit in a group with a rigid and inflexible schedule; my lessons are one-on-one and can be had any time you wish.

I set my rates to be affordable for all students because I do not consider myself to be in the exam business; I am in the RESULTS business. So hit that message button and I'll be right by your side to help you with this tough nut of an exam!

Shrishti's CV

I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Economics from Mithibai College of Arts, in the year 2015. I also received my prestigious Cambridge CELTA certificate that year. I have been teaching for 8 years and have been trained to teach IELTS and CELPIP exam classes by the British Council and Paragon Testing Enterprises, respectively. Currently, I am pursuing an MA TESOL.

Since 2011, I have taught English in a wide variety of institutions and have tutored a range of students of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.

To test my knowledge, I took the TOEFL in 2016 and scored 117/120.

I am also a member of the esteemed English Language Teachers' Association of India, an associate of the International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language, UK.

I am the director of my own English-language services company, which was borne out of my desire to serve the international community of language learners by offering affordable and quality tutoring.

Perfect! I was so impressed with her teaching methodology, it's totally different from what anyone else teaches, even the British Council courses dont offer this much valuable information and one to one support.

I just got my June 1 results and I can't believe it, I got 7.5 in Reading 8 in Writing 8 in Speaking and 8.5 in Listening - All thanks to you ma'am!!! I tried to take the test two times but I did not get the 8777 i wanted before I found her. I must say she is the best IELTS teacher out there!

Perfect! I was not sure whether a teacher could really help me but I was wrong because in just 3 weeks she was able to make me understand what my problems were and gave me easy step-by-step lessons on how to improve the quality of the writing and what I should be doing in reading. She has made it possible for me to pursue my fellowship in the UK.
Before I took her lessons, i took the exam two times in the past but did not make the 7 in writing and reading, despite I tried many times to write essays and read more, nothing worked.
Finally after I took lessons with her, thanks to her teaching, i passed and got 7 in writing and 7.5 in reading! :D

I recommend everyone to ask her for help if they are also struggling on IELTS like I was. She is brilliant!

I had an eye-opening and knowledgeable experience learning all about the CELPIP exam with her. Thanks to her CELPIP coaching I was able to receive a band 9 in the CELPIP and could get my Canadian PR!
She is incredibly talented. no one can match her skills and expertise in English, and specially, exam English - she knows the tests in and out and can tell you exactly what you need to change and improve in order to get the highest score possible.
Despite her talents and popularity she remains humble and dedicated to all her students, which is a very rare thing to find !

I had taken grammar lessons from her, she explained the concepts very well and was pretty patient and in-depth when it came to explaining and clearing doubts. She is a true grammar expert, I've never before had a tutor like her.

S
Shailaja

I took lessons from her two months ago for my IELTS test. So I fully recommend her to other students...she is qualified and experienced tutor who understands how to plan the lecture. It would be quite hard to find a tutor of her level anywhere else. Other teachers basically waste your time and money and have no professional qualifications - so don't be fooled, it's better to hire a good tutor like her instead of wasting your time and efforts trying to prepare for IELTS by yourself or through unqualified teachers.

Review from Shrishti

QUESTION 01 | 07
What motivates you to teach and why?
Shrishti — I believe that my knowledge and expertise are only useful if they are shared for the greater good of other people. It brings me great satisfaction when someone benefits from the skills that I possess and is able to make a positive change in their life because of me. I consider myself to be very result-oriented, and that's why I was drawn to teaching IELTS exam classes.
QUESTION 02 | 07
When did you start developing an interest in your subject area?
Shrishti — When I was young, I thought it was fun to correct people's language errors. As I grew up and became wiser, I realised that I had a gift that needed to be shared with the world so that others may benefit from it. It wasn't until I was in college that I realised, after being guided by my professors, that teaching English is something I should seriously consider. Funnily enough, teaching IELTS sprung forth from a disaster - my CELTA center lost my portfolio, and to make up for it, offered me a complimentary seat on their IELTS trainer course...and it was a blessing in disguise!
QUESTION 03 | 07
If you had to think of a role model for your work, who do you think of and why?
Shrishti — a-ssI think of my mum, who was also a teacher - she is the one that inspired me and motivated me to start teaching. Observing her and the impact she made on her students' lives was eye-opening. What's more, if she hadn't pushed me to ask local private institutions if they'd hire me as an English teacher (when I was 17!), I'd never have gotten to where I am today!
QUESTION 04 | 07
What is the biggest obstacle you had to overcome in mastering your craft?
Shrishti — Being a native speaker, I knew things, but didn't know why they worked the way they did - grammar, for example, was something I never actually thought about because I just "knew" what the right way to say or write something was. But when I was pursuing the CELTA, I was forced to think analytically and logically about language, something that I'd never done before. It was something I had to learn, but in the end, it made me a better teacher and an expert in my field.
QUESTION 05 | 07
In your opinion, what makes someone excel in your subject area?
Shrishti — There is no substitute for knowledge - in order to be a good English teacher you can't just skate by being a native speaker or having studied it at school. Many people think teaching English (or any language for that matter) is a piece of cake - which it absolutely isn't. You need to be able to differentiate between a verb in the past progressive and the present perfect if you were woken up at 3 AM. You need to be able to explain why you'd use the indefinite article and why you wouldn't use the definite article. That's how good you should be! You need to be able to understand how the entire system works. I'd recommend, at minimum, formal schooling in the English language and an in-person TEFL certification, preferably the CELTA. The damage that unqualified English teachers cause naive students is worrisome and must be curbed.
QUESTION 06 | 07
What would you say to a student who says, "This is too difficult, I give up!"?
Shrishti — I encounter this regularly. A task is only difficult if you don't try attempting it, or you have been given the wrong instructions. All you need to do is try it once more, but with the right kind of guidance. It's incumbent upon me to try new methods and ideas to make sure that my students find it easy to attempt and understand challenging new tasks and activities.
QUESTION 07 | 07
How does someone become a Super Teacher?
Shrishti — By being a super learner! I don't mean that you need to have been a straight A student when you were in school. This simply means having had learning experiences that changed you. A super learner understands the process of learning as he/she has been through it, and thus, is able to become a super teacher as he/she can easily guide students through the same process with ease. Another very important trait for a Super Teacher is empathy. If you can't put yourself in your student's shoes and walk a mile in them, you're not cut out to teach. In order to be able to fully help someone you need to not only understand their situation, but also feel how they possibly feel. Only then will you be motivated to give them the very best that you have to offer, as a teacher
