Hi! My name is Francis, I'm from the UK, and I'm a qualified IELTS Examiner. I have been living in China since 2011, helping students to get high scores in their IELTS exam.


I believe that understanding is the key to success in the IELTS exam, so my IELTS courses teach:


1) HOW the IELTS examiner decides your score

2) WHAT you can do to meet the IELTS examiner's requirements


I'm also a keen language learner, and have achieved fluency in Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. If you are interested in learning beginner Chinese, check out my two Chinese courses- you can even try one for free!
