Are you struggling with IELTS writing? Get insider help from a former IELTS examiner and understand EXACTLY how to get Band 7+ on writing.

Find out within 24 hours EXACTLY what you need to do to get Band 7 on writing

why work with Toronto ielts prep online writing training?

Our IELTS writing training system has simple, fool-proof rules and templates that show you how to give the examiner EXACTLY what they are looking for in the SHORTEST way possible. We can help...

  • Even if you’ve gotten a low score repeatedly
  • Even if you can’t write well in your native language
  • Even if your grammar is terrible
  • Even if you have no idea how to start

This simple yet powerful writing system teaches you everything you need to get Band 7+ on IELTS writing. It helps you avoid the serious mistakes that will KILL your score, and it shows you EXACTLY what to say and how to say it.


Powerful writing training, NOT just writing corrections

Writing corrections by themselves don't work. If the teacher doesn't re-check your work, neither of you knows if you can do it properly. That's like a doctor's visit with no follow-up.


Toronto IELTS Prep is the ONLY program where your writing is checked TWICE. These steps make a huge difference in your writing:


1. Review short lessons, templates, model responses, typical mistakes. 

2. Write your response.

3. Receive detailed, descriptive feedback and a band score.

4. Revise your work based on the feedback and follow-up lessons.

5. Receive a 2nd round of feedback with corrections.

100+ model responses written by native speaker IELTS examiners 

High quality example responses written by actual examiners show you our writing system in action, and train you how to write this way automatically. 


- 60+ Writing Task #2 example responses

- 30+ Writing Task #1 Academic example responses

- 30+ Writing Task #1 General example responses

100% effective templates

Our templates make life easy: they tell you EXACTLY what to write in each sentence of your response AND include sentence skeletons that boost your grammar and vocabulary scores


- 7 templates for 7 different Writing Task #2 prompt types 

- 1 master template for 8 different Writing Task #1 General prompt types

- 1 master template for 10 different Writing Task #1 Academic prompt types

"IELTS is harder to prepare for than all of my medical exams!"

Dr. Dina T.

Like many doctors looking to re-start their professional life in Canada, Dina was frustrated and depressed. She took IELTS repeatedly and failed to get the Band 7 on writing she needed, even though she always got Band 7 on Speaking, Reading, and Listening. After IELTS writing training with Toronto IELTS Prep, Dina simplified her approach completely and got the Band 7 she deserved. Congratulations, Dr. Dina!

We have developed a powerful formula for IELTS writing. It tells you exactly what to include in every line of your response and it works 100% effectively:


  • The information you MUST include in your writing, and what you DON’T need to include: Templates and checklists ensure you include everything that is required. You’ll also be surprised to discover what you DON’T need to include. An IELTS essay is NOT the same as an essay for high school or university: many online writing guides are needlessly complicated and cause you to waste time and lose marks writing completely unnecessary content.
  • The shortest possible structure to cover the content requirements: There are a few specific requirements the examiner is looking for, which can be covered in a surprisingly short essay. Anything else, no matter how nice it sounds, will not improve your score. Quality of writing is not related to quantity of writing.
  • The specific types of examples you MUST include for a high score: You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to develop the kind of examples the examiner wants to see. You only need to know 3 easy ways to develop examples.

In addition, for a high band score, you need to:

  • Master the 10 grammar and sentence structures that cover over 80% of writing situations: There are 12 active voice verb tenses and 8 passive voice verb tenses, as well as 23 different sentence structures in English. However, you only need to master 10 of them for Band 7 level writing. Examiners are on the lookout for these.
  • Learn how to avoid making mistakes when writing under pressure: Following this process breaks down writing into small, easy steps. This helps you both avoid mistakes and develop your ideas properly.
  • Use a much more effective method to edit your work: Most people don’t know how to catch their own mistakes. There is a surprisingly effective way to do this based on cognitive science research, and it is NOT how we are taught to proofread and edit in school.

This is NOT just a writing correction service! Writing correction by itself does not help YOU much because the instructor is not re-checking your work to see if YOU understand how to fix your errors.


Our unique training system provides in-depth, detailed feedback and follow-up lessons AND gives you the opportunity to revise your writing for a second round of feedback and corrections. You need this last step to show your instructor whether YOU understand how to correct your errors.


  • 1. Review short lessons, templates, model responses, and typical mistakes. Custom-designed templates for all prompt types show you the most efficient and effective way to answer each question type.
    For the Writing Task 1 General letter, there is one format we recommend, but there is language related to 8 themes and 10+ functional communicative areas you must master (e.g. making recommendations, indirect language for asking politely, complaining politely, providing feedback on someone's performance). For the Writing Task 1 Academic diagram description, you must be familiar with 10 diagram types. We recommend one format for all of them, but each needs specific language to describe different types of relationships (e.g. describing change, comparing percentages, describing natural processes, comparing past and present). For the Writing Task 2 essay, there are 7 distinct prompt types. Each requires a slightly different response pattern. For that reason, while we use one general 4-paragraph essay structure, we have 7 more precise templates. Each one has slightly different sentence skeletons to satisfy the specific content and structural needs of each prompt type.
  • 2. Write your response. All writing is posted in the course website for easy reference. There's no emailing back-and-forth.
  • 3. Receive detailed, descriptive feedback and a band score using the official IELTS rubric. Colour-coding shows you exactly what types of issues are costing you the most marks, and thus what you need to fix first. Feedback includes detailed comments and targeted follow-up mini grammar lessons that focus on your specific weak areas.
  • 4. Revise your work based on the feedback and follow-up lessons. If you aren't re-writing your work and your teacher isn't re-checking it, you have NO IDEA if you understand how to fix your problems. For that reason, just getting your writing assessed or corrected doesn't help YOU learn how to write. That's why in this program, you revise all of your work based on the feedback. You'll be surprised at how many problems you can solve by yourself once you learn how to spot them!
  • 5. Receive a 2nd round of feedback with corrections. After you've submitted your revised writing, your work will be corrected. You'll receive explanations for grammar changes and recommendations for better ways to express your ideas. You might be assigned additional follow-up mini grammar lessons.

I appreciate all your corrections and tips. It made a huge difference to notice that [not enough] “error-free” sentences were pushing my score down. I tried to control those errors during my last test, and it seems everything went well!”

“I just wrote the texts in a simple way instead of using complex structures to give a good impression. I also paid more attention to subject / verb and tenses, avoiding those basic single/plural errors. I didn’t have time to read and correct my texts at the end (like always), but I believe that I controlled my errors during the writing process.

Dr. Bruno E.

Dr. Bruno had taken IELTS repeatedly and failed to get at least Band 7 on writing, which he needed to work as a doctor in Canada. After training with Toronto IELTS Prep, Dr. Bruno simplified his approach to writing and finally got the Band 7 he needs. Congratulations, Dr. Bruno!

"I’m delighted to tell you that I got the marks I need in the last IELTS exam. I’m sure that I achieved these bands because of your tremendous effort and help… Before I joined the course my English language was not good especially in writing, and my highest result in IELTS exam was 5.5 in writing. I heard about the course from a friend, so I enrolled in it, and from the first session I understood that this course is better than other courses that I attended before. This is because the teacher, Mr. Jan, has a very good command of English. He delivers the information to students in a very nice way, and his sessions are full with important details like grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. His platform is highly informative and contain all the materials that are required to improve your English particularly speaking and writing. For instance, the vocabulary app was very beneficial to increase my vocab. Additionally, Mr. Jan was professional in correcting my essays and I learned a lot from him. I highly recommend this course for everyone who wants to improve his or her English or to get good marks in IELTS exam.

I want to thank you for your continuous support and advice."

Band 7 Boot Camp: Program Options

Gambling on IELTS doesn't work

IELTS makes more money when you fail. It’s that simple.

IELTS is a business, a REALLY BIG business. IELTS LOVES IT when students take the test over and over again, HOPING for a better result!

IDP, the private company that co-owns IELTS, made over $400 MILLION USD in 2019 thanks to test takers GAMBLING that they can beat the test just by trying again and again.

I hope taking the exam over and over again HOPING for a better result isn’t YOUR test strategy!

Instead, talk to a former examiner and find out BY TOMORROW why you're not getting Band 7 on writing and EXACTLY what you need to do to reach Band 7+. This ONE consultation has helped many test takers get the score they need on their next try!

“You’re really different from my previous IELTS teacher. He was ok, but the advice was too general – it didn’t help me improve. You give very specific advice on what I should do to fix my writing. It’s really helpful! As well, the way that you explain the scoring process for each writing task is very helpful. Nobody before explained it as clearly as you explain it.“

Dr. Ghazaleh p.

"My name is Pasha, I am a Persian physician living in Canada for about 5 years. I have done all the medical qualification exams, got stuck behind the IELTS exam. Had this exam four times already, and these are the results:

2020-06-20 8.586.577.5


The surprising fact is that the first time I registered for the exam, I didn’t even study one page for it. After almost 9 months of reading lots of books, doing mock exams and many essay corrections, I still get 6.5."
