    Tutor english Iona D.

    Iona D.

    United Kingdom
    per hour

    Certified IELTS tutor with 5 years of experience. My name is Iona and I’m from Newcastle, in the North of England. I have been teaching English in Spain for four years, first in Spain, and now in the UK. Whether you’re looking to practice conversational English or prepare for an exam, I’d be happy to help you.

    Why choose Iona D.
    "I recently started taking classes with Iona to prepare for the IELTS exam. Especially with regard to the written and oral part of the exam, I had great concern, as I rarely have the chance to practice the English language in real life. However, Iona quickly made me feel comfortable with my speaking and I feel a lot more confident now. Besides, she demonstrates great knowledge when it comes to the specific requirements of the IELTS exam. Beyond that, Iona is a determined and dedicated, yet social-minded and polite person. She swiftly replies to any enquiries and even reviewed a writing mock exam of mine prior to our first trial lesson. In light of the above, I strongly and most enthusiastically recommend Iona as an English teacher. Edit April 2019: I recently received my results for the IELTS; overall 8.5 (L 9.0/R 9.0/W 7.0/S 8.5). No doubt I wouldn’t have been able to achieve this without Iona’s great teaching. I wish her all the best."
