I received my IELTS score today. Without your input it would have not been possible to score the desired marks in speaking section. Thank you very much for all the guidance and feedback provided.

I had IELTS classes (Speaking Part) with Jan. She is one of the best teachers I've ever had. Not only did she help me achieve a high score, but she virtually brought my spoken English to a new level.

~Andrew, Moscow

I would like to thank you for your professional approach to students and an excellent explanation of material! Your lessons were very useful for me and I could increase my band score in Speaking part from 5.5 to 7.0! My overall score is 6.5, that means I can start my study! I'm so happy.

~Svetlana, USA

To be honest, I tried a lot of teachers in my life and I always had the same feeling. They were more interested in my money rather than removing my bad accent or I think I should say my perfect Spanish accent. So in the end I thought I had to open my mind and try something online. When I started to receive the first lessons with Jan I felt that she was too old to teach but I was completely wrong. She had the ability to encourage me to study English again... like a kid. She knows a lot of web sites where you can practise her tips and feel that English is not so difficult. My advice is to try it. She has a lot of experience. You may think that it's expensive but it's worth every penny. Trust me!!!

I had a great experience of having IELTS exam preparation lessons with Jan. My goal was to achieve 7.5, and together we managed to improve my English level significantly within a very short period of time, just about one month. So, I was able to reach my desired result. I was really impressed by Jan's professional knowledge, patience and ability to turn such a hard piece of work into an enjoyable pastime. I learned a lot of really valuable hints for a successful speaking test. Moreover, it turned out that they are also important for everyday communication, as I have moved to an English speaking country now.

Hi everyone! I like the way Jan teaches. She is a strong professional. I have improved my speaking and writing skills as well as my listening skill. She gave me good examples, easy for understanding English grammar. I liked our lessons very much.

~Nick, Russia, Moscow

Together with Jan we prepared for IELTS. All lessons were very useful for us. We discussed a lot of topics that are related to the exam. We learnt to keep up the conversation and communicate our ideas in English. Jan is an excellent, skilled teacher and an interesting interlocutor. Her lessons helped us to feel confident at the exam and to pass it successfully.

~Dmitry and Evgeniya, Russia

I believe the IELTS classes with Jan were quite beneficial to me, but you have to be prepared for hard work :).

Most importantly, given Jan's IELTS experience, you can be assured that your time won't be wasted!

~Vadim aka Meeky, Moscow, Russia

I sat IELTS again in August 2013 as I needed a higher band score to proceed with my long-term goals. I did not have any doubts concerning whom I would like to have as my English teacher, since I knew Jan and was absolutely confident in the excellent quality of her lessons. All my exam preparation took about 1.5 months. During this period I spent as much time on English practice as I could (2-3 hours daily plus all weekends) because I was continuing working full time. Jan is simply the best tutor you can find to help you with IELTS preparation. All aspects of speaking were addressed: accent reduction, vocabulary enrichment, time stress, and intonation in English -- you name it. Different techniques were used to reach the desired improvement, and every minute of our lessons was busy and useful. As a bonus was an invaluable piece of advice on writing that highlighted the most important test requirements, which incidentally I could not get from any tutors whose specialty was IELTS writing tasks checking. And my results were astonishing: overall score 8.5 with an incredible 9.0 for speaking! So if you plan to take IELTS, or just want to "tune up" your English, I highly recommend Jan as the best English tutor. Be prepared to work hard and make clear goals which you need to achieve -- and the miracle will definitely occur :)

~Natalia, Auckland/NZ

Learning English with Jan is definitely a pleasant journey. Her strong yet solid analysis of grammar differentiates her from other so called 'native speakers'. That does not mean she teaches 'old-fashioned English' or 'Classroom English'. She can lead you to different aspects, ranging from social occasions, academic papers, professional communications, workplace English, and most importantly, IELTS preparation. If you want to be a fluent and educated speaker, come join Jan's class.
