My name is Ray and I run a small English school in Kyushu, Japan called London Language Lounge.
I have been teaching IELTS since 2009 and I founded IELTS Focus in 2016 to help my students hit their target score in the IELTS exam. I also have an online writing correction service and one to one IELTS speaking sessions online.

Many students are completely misinformed or confused about IELTS so the aim of this website is to clear up confusion and show you clearly what you need to do to get a Band 7 or more.

Take a look at the testimonials page to see what my students have said.
