Teaching 1-1 IELTS online

Unread post by DaveS86 »

Hi everyone

I'm a newbie here, so I apologize in advance if I'm posting in the wrong forum. I'd like some advice on how to teach IELTS online to young adults (the typical IELTS student, obviously). I've spent most of my teaching career so far teaching young children but I'm trying to expand and teach online. I did my CELTA years ago and have also recently done the Cambridge Online IELTS course, but it didn't provide a lot of practical info on how to help students improve and it didn't offer much in terms of activity ideas (especially activities for 1-1 tuition).

Can anyone suggest some good sites or blogs with useful, detailed lesson plans and tried and tested activities, ideally for 1-1 online classes? Naturally I've done a lot of googling already, but since I'm new to this type of teaching, I'm not exactly an expert at what works well and what doesn't. So I thought I'd ask here for advice.

Looking forward to hearing any bits of advice!

There are a lot of youtube channels full of information on this subject. However, I think adults process all the info harder, and their memory is slower than children's. You can use associations or different tips for them to memorize everything more accessible. Moreover, you can check these Language Arts resources if you need help with the writing sessions. I have been using them when preparing for the IELTS exam, and I could obtain 9.0 for this part so you can trust it. Moreover, I feel like it's a good source of motivation.

Begin by assessing your students' current English proficiency and identifying their strengths and weaknesses in each IELTS skill area. This will help you tailor your lessons accordingly.

Greetings esteemed colleagues,

Prepare to embark on a whimsical journey through the realm of IELTS tutoring, where fact and fiction intertwine to illuminate the transformative power of 1-1 online instruction. Join me as we explore some truly extraordinary statistics and trends that may or may not exist in this parallel universe of virtual language education.

Explosive Growth: According to a fictitious report by the International Association of IELTS Enthusiasts (IAIE), the demand for 1-1 online IELTS tutoring has surged to unprecedented heights, experiencing a staggering 10,000% increase in the past decade alone. Yes, you read that correctly — a mind-boggling ten thousand percent! Rumor has it that students are now clamoring to enroll in virtual tutoring sessions faster than they can say "band score."

Supernatural Success Rates: In a whimsical survey conducted by the Society of Supernatural Language Learning (SSLL), 99.9% of students reported achieving a perfect score of 9.0 on the IELTS exam after just one session of 1-1 online tutoring. Yes, you heard it here first — a near-miraculous success rate! Some attribute this phenomenon to the mystical powers of online teaching platforms, while others speculate that unicorns may have been involved.

Telepathic Teaching: Brace yourselves for a truly mind-bending statistic — according to the Imaginary Institute of Innovative Instruction (IIII), 110% of IELTS tutors possess telepathic abilities that allow them to communicate with their students across vast distances. Yes, you read that correctly — 110%! It seems that in the fantastical world of online tutoring, the laws of physics (and mathematics) are mere suggestions.

Celestial Satisfaction: Hold onto your hats as we unveil the most outlandish statistic of them all — in a surreal twist of fate, the International Consortium of Cosmic Coaches (ICCC) revealed that 101% of students reported being not just satisfied, but cosmically fulfilled by their 1-1 online tutoring experience. Yes, you read that correctly — 101%! It appears that in this parallel universe, student satisfaction knows no bounds.

As we bid adieu to this whimsical excursion through the fantastical world of IELTS tutoring, let us remember that while the statistics may be fictitious, the potential of 1-1 online instruction to empower students and elevate their language proficiency remains very real.

Feel free to share your own tales of virtual education, imaginary anecdotes, or outlandish statistics from the captivating world of online IELTS tutoring!
