Kind Words from Past Students

Improved Speaking Score From 6 to 8!

by Kohei

Joe’s lesson is arguably the best one in Toronto. The lessons are balanced and improve all areas, like: pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar, fluency, etc. Before meeting Joe, I was really impressed with my English ability, but then I realized I had a lot of problems with pronunciation. I had opportunities to talk to other tutors, but the only person who could fix my mistakes was Joe. In fact, I was able to stretch my IELTS speaking score from a 6 to an 8. Without any doubt, I was only able to get this far with Joe’s teaching. I definitely recommend Joe’s lessons to everyone.

Surprised At How Much I learned

by Keiko

I have attended four language schools because I was never satisfied and kept searching for better classes. I thought the quality of a language school depended on its students and the atmosphere of the classroom. Now I realize my thinking was incorrect; I should have looked for a school that gave me better results. When I first started taking Joe’s lessons, I was surprised because I learned new things that were completely different from the language schools I attended. Not only did he teach me pronunciation but how to speak in a more native way. I remember thinking that this was the English I wanted to learn. I was delighted by Joe’s enthusiasm and unique teaching style. He made learning English fun again. I am very happy to have learned more practical English and more effective ways to study.

Improved My Listening

by Kazumasa

At first I went to a language school. However, I didn't feel like it was fun or interesting, so I stopped immediately and looked for a new school. I found TES where teacher Joe corrects pronunciation, grammar and collocation mistakes instantly. In particular, his pronunciation teaching was clear. I also highly recommend this class for those who want to improve their listening. He said that if I can't hear sounds correctly then I can't pronounce them correctly. After taking Joe's lesson, my TOEIC listening score increased from 220 to 420!

Pronounce English Like A Native

by Satoko

When I came to Canada on a working holiday visa, I had trouble with English. Of course, I didn’t have any vocabulary or grammar, but my pronunciation was the worst. I couldn’t convey simple words and went to various English school trials without any results. TES was really helpful because my pronunciation was thoroughly corrected, and my speaking improved. I would never have learned how to pronounce English like a native without taking this class. TES focuses on pronunciation and speaking, and Teacher Joe will explain any grammar that you do not understand. I was really happy to take this class. Thank you very much!

Toronto English School's founder & course creator:


After earning a bachelor's degree in Education, Joseph packed his bags and searched out new experiences by teaching in Asia. After a few years, he returned to Toronto where he has taught English for over twelve years.

During that time, he pinpointed and mapped all the stubborn issues his students struggled with and developed practical solutions. As a result, Joseph designed a powerful teaching method that inspires learning, targets each individual's speaking weaknesses, creates breakthrough moments and builds accurate speaking habits for effective lifelong communication.

In a quest to help as many frustrated English learners as possible, Joseph turned his attention to creating this IELTS Assist course.
