IELTS Private Tutoring in Budapest (Hungary)

No two students learn in the exact same way, and what works for one person may not effectively work for another. While many students enjoy the liveliness of group classes, other students know they learn best through individualized and customized instruction. If you prefer to receive the personalized attention that only comes from private tutoring, we invite you to contact us today to see what private instruction programs are best for you as you prepare for the IELTS. Our experienced and friendly private tutors are eager to help you succeed on the IELTS, and they know the most effective and efficient test-taking strategies, as well as techniques designed to help you improve your overall score.

When you partner with Manhattan Review, you receive access to industry-leading, comprehensive IELTS preparation. We provide our students with the necessary educational tools to excel on the IELTS, allowing you to gain admission to the world's top English-speaking undergraduate and graduate programs. Those who work with our professional and knowledgeable tutors consistently receive admission into the most respected and established colleges and universities in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and elsewhere around the world.

Since 1999, Manhattan Review has offered the leading IELTS preparation resources for students in Budapest. For those desiring a customized program of study, we will happily pair you with just the right instructor for your particular test-taking needs. Private tutoring focused around your personal learning style can not only improve your test scores, but it can also significantly boost your confidence, as well, allowing you to feel prepared on the day of your exam. Our private instruction options are carefully crafted for each individual student, ensuring your personal needs, strengths, and areas of growth are taken into consideration.

One of the best ways to prepare for the IELTS is to work with a private tutor, someone familiar with all aspects of the test who knows what will be required to perform well on the exam. Our tutors are skilled instructors and educators, and many live right here in Budapest. We have retained the services of individuals with strong academic and teaching backgrounds who are committed to helping future university students achieve their own success. Rather than attempting to change the way you learn, spend your time working with a private tutor and allow them to take the guesswork out of preparing for the IELTS. Your private tutor will work closely with you to identify your learning strengths while also sharing techniques designed to help you 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 determine English competency (the other exam is the Test of English as a Foreign Language, or the TOEFL). Given that the IELTS is a British test, it is understandably favored by many academic programs in the United Kingdom. The TOEFL, on the other hand, is an American exam, and many U.S. colleges and universities favor it over the IETLS. A great many postsecondary institutions in both the United Kingdom and the United States accept either the IELTS or the TOEFL, and we always recommend our clients verify the English requirements of the undergraduate or graduate program they wish to attend. If you are given the choice between the IELTS and the TOEFL, the best thing to do is take a practice version of each test and ultimately select whichever one is easier for you.

Students who live in Budapest and dream of attending an English-speaking academic institution understand the importance of selecting the best college to attend. There are far more college applications received than there are available spots for incoming freshmen, and you need to make your application materials stand out in a way that sets you apart from everyone else.

Companies who hire college graduates are more discerning than ever, and in order to obtain the job of your dreams, you will need to demonstrate an impressive academic background. Companies in Budapest and around the world want to hire employees who studied at a prestigious college or university whose name instantly sparks recognition and respect. In order to establish yourself in your preferred career, you must first consider what will make you stand out as a prospective employee, and graduating from a world-class university will always make a favorable impression on potential employers.

Our students consistently obtain admission into the world's leading undergraduate and graduate programs, including Yale, Harvard, University College London, the London School of Economics, CalTech, MIT, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Chicago, the University of Pennsylvania, Stanford, Cornell, Columbia University, Oxford, the University of California at Berkeley, the University of Southern California, the University of Toronto, Princeton, and elsewhere.

Compared to other test prep companies, most of Manhattan Review's clients are not native English speakers, and we have far more experience facilitating international student success on British and American standardized tests than other prep companies. We are a global organization, dedicated to helping students around the world unlock their potential and achieve their highest possible IELTS scores. Contact us today to find out how we can help you achieve your own academic success.

Meet a Budapest IELTS Tutor: Karalos E.

Karalos has been teaching IELTS group courses and offering one-on-one tutoring for Manhattan Review since 2009. His parents moved to the United States before he was born, but he grew up with a strong connection to his Greek homeland and visited grandparents and other family members every summer. "I've always been a people person," he shares, "and I'm happiest when I'm surrounded by others." From an early age, Karalos felt an interest in human behavior, particularly in the setting of group dynamics, and this led him to pursue a bachelor's degree in sociology from the University of Pennsylvania. He obtained a master's degree in sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, followed by a master's degree in teaching from Harvard. "I love to learn, and I love to live in new places," he says with a smile. "I also realized I love to help others learn, so they can live and work wherever they want."

Karalos joined Manhattan Review as an IELTS instructor in our Atlanta office, but when a position at our Budapest office opened up, he applied immediately. Thrilled he was able to continue tutoring and teaching, Karalos was excited to live in Europe where he could be close to extended family while exploring new cities he hadn't yet visited. Karalos enjoys helping students master the material needed to obtain a high score on the IELTS, noting, "Even as a native English speaker, I recognize how challenging learning the language can be." He is passionate about helping Hungarian students obtain their own academic success and loves hearing about the prestigious colleges and universities they are accepted to after working with him.

Karalos and his wife love the combination of historical and modern in Budapest, and when Karalos isn't helping students obtain impressive scores on the IELTS, he enjoys going to the theater, biking along the Danube, and listening to his wife play the cello in a community music group.
