Our goal is to ensure that our students always feel safe and welcome in class. We understand that test anxiety is real, so we always make sure our students feel comfortable facing challenges and stresses that come with learning a language and preparing for their immigration plans. We are very patient and supportive of each student’s progress in and outside of class as we understand that making mistakes is part of their learning curve.

Please note that for our CELPIP tutoring lessons, we cannot sell or share the official practice tests sold on the Paragon testing website due to copyright laws.
Once you’ve enrolled with our school, you’re a student for life! That means you can study from your lesson material whenever you need to. We won’t expect it to be returned once you have finished your lessons.
You’ll get LIVE feedback from your Canadian teacher at the beginning of each lesson!
That way we can give you clear explanations and personalized feedback, AND you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions.
All of your essays will be saved in a shared folder between you and your teacher via Google Drive. Just type in your document and we’ll have immediate access to your work.
Definitely! We want you to feel 100% comfortable and confident that you’ve made the right choice by studying with us.

Studying with us is by far the fastest and most efficient way to prepare for your test.
Why? We know what we’re doing and we want results.

Just like hiring a personal trainer at the gym, getting personalized attention and support leads to better and faster results.
That being said, you’ll still need to take some personal factors into consideration. Preparing for your upcoming exam will take some hard work, effort, and dedication on your part, and time from your schedule.
Your test preparation time will ultimately depend on a few factors:
- your current proficiency level compared to your final objective
- your availability/free time to study
- personal effort studying and completing homework
- the number of classes taken per week
- minimum band scores desired (the higher the objective, the longer the study time, in general).
And at the end of the day, there is no one answer to this question. Everyone is different.
We can estimate, however, that a student who is at an intermediate English proficiency level (B1), who puts in the effort to study, will require approximately three months to comfortably learn the four parts of an English proficiency test: reading, speaking, writing, and listening.
We encourage that our students be at B1 Intermediate proficiency level to be able to fully benefit from and to keep up with their exam preparation lesson material.
If you are currently at pre-intermediate level or below, please check out our general English lessons for all proficiency levels.
