John is a great teacher. I took emergency IELTS classes from him and in just 9 days (28 classes) he taught me a lot of exam strategies and gave me good advice. We focused on my needs and it really helped! We studied around 3 hours a day but I never got bored because the lessons were so fun and he had a lot of high-quality learning materials. He was prepared and that made me feel more relaxed cause I knew that I found the right teacher for my needs. I know that it's really hard for a teacher to teach the whole IELTS in 9 days but he didn't hesitate and he took the risk with me! I took the test yesterday and if I hadn't studied with John I could've failed it. I haven't received my IELTS results yet but I know that I did well and I'm not stressed about it at all. He's definitely the BEST teacher you can find on italki, I feel so lucky to have a teacher like John and I hope to learn more from him in future!

I signed up with John for an IELTS trial lesson and he exceeded all expectations. He teaches all four sections of the IELTS which is hard to find on Italki. He doesn't pander or try to stroke your ego and offers constrictive feedback to maximise your chances of getting the best score possible. It's also pretty clear that he knows the test inside out and is able to answer any question regarding the test. I highly recommend working with him, especially after you've tried out lessons with other teachers. People here are nice and friendly, but professionals like John truly stand out.

It's been more than a year since I studied with him. He knows exactly what I'm lacking and he does his best to help me. He is the most intelligent and helpful teacher.

John is a very good teacher, he reviewed each of my homework assignments very carefully and gave me a lot of useful advice. I am very glad to be his student and would recommend him to anyone who needs to prepare for the IELTS exam.
