Thanks to Kateβ€˜s interesting and practical lessons, I got a score of 6.0 in speaking. I learned many useful expressions as well as the answering logic which definitely improved my speaking skills, and the most important thing is that Kate makes me feel confident and not nervous when talking to the IELTS examiner. With more practice with Kate, I believe I can get a higher score in IELTS test.

I have been studying with Kate since January and enjoying every session. My favorite thing with Kate is, that she always comes up with an idea to improve my speaking in a short period time and make simple exercises to practice. Thanks to her help, I got a 8.0 in speaking in my first academic IELTS.

Kate is an excellent English teacher who teaches strategically. She has corrected my mistakes in spoken English which I wasn't aware of. She also tackles my problems in a more strategic and holistic way, which is a rare find. I'd highly recommend her to the students who want to get a band 7 or above in IELTS speaking.
