A gentle encouragement/reminder: preparing candidates 1-2-1 for IELTS does ‘COUNT’ as well!
Even if it’s a very SHORT course (e.g. of 2-4 weeks).
Even if they’re already on the LEVEL they’re seeking (but perhaps don’t know the structure of the exam very well yet, or need help with/your feedback on ONE skill in particular).
High-five if you’ve successfully prepared any students for the exam already! <3
And my question to you is this: beyond getting more experience (and perhaps with groups too), what could make you feel more CONFIDENT about teaching IELTS?
