About Me

Hello, my name is Peter, I'm originally from the USA and I have 10 years experience teaching IELTS in the UK, Thailand, Australia, and New Zealand. I hold a TEFL and CELTA English Language Certificate. I am an EX-IELTS Examiner, the director of Southern Star Language School, and the author of "How to Pass IELTS Writing" an IELTS-writing guide.

I offer both group and private classes in person or online on Skype and teach:

-task 1 & 2
-essay, letter, and report structures
-key vocabulary for all tasks
-complex sentence structures




I teach all areas and strategies for PTE Academic. The lessons are designed to help you take the PTE test more effectively.

I teach students from a variety of language levels, from beginner to advanced, focusing on speaking, writing, reading, and listening.

I have many successful students, some who have improved their score by 2 bands in a week. I have a suggested structure for my IELTS COURSE, however, I will also teach what YOU WANT for the same goal, to PASS IELTS!

My lessons are $40 per hour for 1:1 lessons and I offer a discount for group lessons.

If you're interested please contact me and we can start, thank you!


Alternatively, I also offer a writing workshop which covers all areas of all IELTS Writing tasks in one day! Here is some more information regarding that:

This is a weekly workshop that will cover all tasks for task 1 and 2 of the IELTS ACADEMIC and General test, covering key structure, vocabulary, and writing strategies for the test.

The 4-5 hour workshop will cover everything you need to know to pass IELTS writing.

Everything is provided, including lunch, just bring a pen and some paper.
You also get a free copy of the book, "How to Pass IELTS Writing" 5 Steps to pass IELTS Writing.

If you're interested please contact me and we can start! Thank you!

Peter helped me reach my goal of 7 in IELTS to finally get my permanent residency. I have been trying and failing only getting 6.5 until Peter showed me how to finally pass! Thank you Peter!
