Man from Oslo, Norway
IELTS Listening: 8.5
"I had six lessons with Nicola in July and August, preparing for IELTS. I knew that my English was pretty good, but I needed to make sure I got at least band 7 in order to be admitted to a British university. I had never taken any English language tests before, so I didn't know what to expect. We worked on all four parts of IELTS. Nicola has a thorough understanding of all of them, and I think she can help students on all levels. I got home work from one lesson to the next one. She identified weak sides, and made sure the home work would improve them. I got the feeling that she enjoys her work and really wanted me to succeed, it is not only about the money. She also has a sharp humor and is great fun to spend time with :-) Overall my lessons with Nicola were enjoyable and a wise investment that helped me get band 8. I give her my best recommendations."
