Meet an Urbana-Champaign IELTS Tutor: Thomas J.

Thomas J. has been teaching English as a second language in various formats, including as a TOEFL and IELTS instructor, since he gained his TESOL certificate from the University of Illinois and subsequently moved to Urbana-Champaign. Thomas has worked as an English instructor in various forms since his high school years when he tutored ESL students in the Arizona area.

Thomas utilizes different methods of teaching English to fit the student's needs and goals, so a student looking to study with him for the TOEFL will receive a different lesson plan than an IELTS student, and students who wish to learn English for non-academic reasons will receive another one entirely so as to fit their goals best. Thomas spends his free time practicing the violin.
