They know just how to help you leverage the academic strengths you already possess while showing you how to overcome any areas of weakness that might negatively affect your IELTS performance. 

The IELTS is one of two major exams used by universities in the English-speaking world to assess English language competency (the other exam is the Test of English as a Foreign Language, or TOEFL). The IELTS is a British examination, and it is therefore favored by many universities in the United Kingdom. The TOEFL is an American test, and many U.S. colleges favor it over the IELTS. A number of postsecondary institutions in both the United States and the United Kingdom, however, will accept either the IELTS or the TOEFL, and we advise all of our test prep clients to verify the English requirements of their preferred undergraduate or graduate program. If you have a choice between the IELTS and the TOEFL, the best solution is to try practice versions of both tests, ultimately favoring whichever one is easier for you. It is important to note that there are some clear differences between the two tests…speaking skills, for example, are evaluated by audio recordings on the TOEFL and by in-person interviews on the IELTS. 

The IELTS is graded on a scale of 1 to 9, with higher scores reflecting a better understanding of the English language and a stronger ability to communicate effectively in this language. Schools such as Harvard, Stanford, MIT, and Caltech require a minimum IELTS score of 7 in order to obtain admission to undergrade programs, although incoming students routinely have scores higher than this. Most colleges and universities in the United Kingdom and the United States suggest an IELTS score of 6 to 7 in order to be considered competitive for admission. 

At Manhattan Review, we have designed a variety of standardized test prep options to ensure there is always one that will work for you and your learning needs. We have used our extensive experience in the test prep industry to help students just like you work to their full potential, obtaining the test scores they need to make their collegiate dreams an exciting reality.

Our in-demand professional educators have created a specialized test prep method that is both comprehensive and targeted, helping numerous students gain admission to the leading English-speaking colleges and universities including New York University, Columbia University, MIT, Johns Hopkins University, Duke University, American University, Georgetown University, Harvard University, the University of Chicago, the University of Southern California, the University of Toronto, Stanford University, the University of Washington, Northwestern University, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Cornell University, Oxford University, the University of Cambridge, the University of California at Los Angeles, Princeton University, and elsewhere.

Meet a Calgary IELTS Tutor: Chidi O.

Chidi O. was born in Lagos, Nigeria, and lived in the country until she was thirteen, at which time her father was offered an exciting job opportunity that required the family to relocate to Montreal. "I was so sad to leave my grandparents and extended family," shares Chidi, "but I was also excited to travel to a new country I'd never visited before. I also loved to cook from a very early age, and my father told me how respected Montreal was for its food, so that gave me something to look forward to." Chidi can't recall a time she wasn't helping out in the kitchen, measuring ingredients, watching baked goods take shape, and cooking vegetables she grew in her own small garden. Thankfully, her family's new home in Montreal had just enough space for her to start a new garden, and the first night she served squash she had grown herself, "I was so proud," she smiles, "and I knew I wanted to do something with my life that involved cooking and sharing food with others." 

Chidi had been fortunate to learn French as a child at her international school in Lagos, as well as basic English, but she quickly found herself overwhelmed by the pace at which her English-speaking classmates communicated. Her parents arranged for her to take lessons to improve her grasp of this notoriously difficult language, and it wasn't long before Chidi felt much more comfortable with her English reading, writing, and speaking skills. In fact, she soon found herself helping other international students improve their own grasp of English, and she even went so far as to found an ESL club during her sophomore year of high school. Chidi was surprised at how much she enjoyed helping others learn, and she began to think of ways she might someday combine her passion for cooking with her love of teaching. Due to Chidi's impressive academic performance, as well as her high SAT score, she was accepted to numerous colleges and universities, and she ultimately chose to attend Princeton University, where she majored in education. Chidi then attended a world-famous culinary school in France, but rather than accept a position in a European restaurant, she decided to travel, although she first returned to the United States and obtained her TESOL certificate from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Chidi then packed her suitcases and accepted a position with an international nonprofit organization focused on teaching English to students.

Chidi loved living all around the world, and as she taught English to students, she learned about the local ingredients available for use and began to create recipes based off them. While she was more than happy to share her cooking techniques with the local families of the students she taught, she also took every opportunity she could to learn from them, picking up new skills through first-hand experience. After more than a decade spent in various countries across Southeast Asia and Africa, Chidi decided she wanted to put down roots and accepted an administrative position with her company in Calgary. While she continued to offer sought-after cooking seminars in her new home, Chidi missed working directly with students, and when a rare opening came up at the Calgary office of Manhattan Review, she eagerly applied and was quickly welcomed to the team. Her students appreciate her enthusiasm and experience, as well as her multilingual abilities. When Chidi isn't helping future college students prepare for the IELTS, she can be found tending to a shared neighborhood vegetable and flower garden, teaching cooking lessons at local food venues, and working on her own cookbook, which she intends to publish soon.
