GMAT, TOEFL iBT Intensive Exam Preparation private lessons

University of Chicago graduate with over 10 years experience in standardized exam preparation offers intensive specialized training for the Verbal section of the GMAT and for TOEFL iBT with guaranteed significant score improvement.
The GMAT is required for most MBA programs worldwide, of which the top 100 use it for 90% of their admissions. Its Verbal section (Sentence Correction, Critical Reasoning, Reading Comprehension) is quite different in its focus on the logic and construction of phrases and arguments rather than language rules and vocabulary, typical of other exams. I will help you gain real understanding of the question logic, and extensive practice by working only with authentic questions from past exams (hundreds of questions of various difficulty levels) and supplementing with extra targeted exercises from my eclectic collection of the best resources. This serious exam requires intelligent preparation, there are no superficial shortcuts and tricks like those one may easily come across. However daunting the GMAT may seem, you can actually score at least as high as native speakers (I have had students score in the 700’s), thanks to a more analytical and formal approach to English. What is awesome is that GMAT preparation will not only increase your test score, but also give you logical and analytical skills useful in any aspect of your academic or professional life.
The purpose of the TOEFL is merely to make sure you have the necessary English skills to study in university, with a focus on communication and understanding. Thanks to my long academic experience in American universities and preparing hundreds of students for the TOEFL exam, I can help you significantly improve your written English production for the two different TOEFL writing tasks, as well as your pronunciation and fluency for the six speaking tasks.
The methodological and individual approach will definitely boost your skills and confidence and give you a more efficient and effective preparation than group courses can.

About Me

My passion is helping ambitious students achieve their academic dreams and I know what it takes to succeed on standardized exams, both as a student and as a teacher.
Thanks to my high test scores (over 90% on TOEFL, SAT and GRE ) I was admitted to top U.S. universities with a full scholarship and a full stipend.
Also I have taught TOEFL, Cambridge certificates and GMAT preparation courses for over 10 years. There is nothing more rewarding than having been part of the success of my students.
I have a C1 level in French and a B2 in Dutch, so I am familiar with the ‘faux amis’ between the languages and some typical difficulties in grammar and pronunciation.

Anna
English course given by a British student in translation and interpretation
ABOUT ME: I am a student in translation and interpretation in English / German / French. I am of English and Japanese origin and English is therefore my mother tongue. I lived in London until my teenage years and then continued my studies in Belgium. My French is also of maternal level as I have been here for a long time. COURSE CONDUCT: I give lessons to beginners and intermediates. I personally find it extremely difficult to learn a language by studying only grammar, vocabulary and syntax. So I use an approach where we implement, orally or in writing, all the rules that the learning books give us in order to better understand and retain the language. I also give oral lessons during which we discuss different subjects. I have always loved languages and give lessons to those who want to learn them. It's really a passion! I hope I can help you.
