  • Unlimited QA: I personally answer all questions.

The 8 mistakes below are 80% of the reason why people don’t get Band 7 on IELTS writing.

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

Dr. Dina T.

It’s true that writing is hard, but your writing doesn’t need to be perfect for Band 7. You have to know what will hurt your score, and what you don’t need to worry about.

Most people are putting their efforts into the WRONG areas. All you need to do is focus on these 8 problem areas. In fact, 5 of these problem areas DO NOT require learning any new grammar concepts or vocabulary.

  • Not understanding the content requirements

    The Band 7 requirements are MUCH different from the Band 6 requirements. Many IELTS teachers believe the difference between Band 6 and Band 7 is just the number of grammar mistakes, that IELTS is just a language test and that content does not matter. This is COMPLETELY FALSE. Even “good” writers get low scores on IELTS because they don’t understand the content requirements. Don’t let this happen to you!

  • Giving an answer that is too general or too specific

    Many people answer the question too generally while others are too specific. You can’t do this and get Band 7. The right balance is key to a high score.

  • Giving the wrong kind of example

    Most people don’t understand what you can include as an example. It’s actually much easier than you think to come up with the kinds of examples that will get a high score.

  • Not connecting ideas in the right way

    It MUST be crystal clear how ideas are connected to each other and to the prompt. The templates in this course guarantee that you give examiners the specific linking phrases they are looking for.

  • Subject-verb agreement

    Verbs must be properly conjugated for Band 7. There is no avoiding this.

  • Run-on sentences

    You must be 100% clear on what a sentence is, and how you are allowed to combine sentences. There is no avoiding this.

  • Sentence fragments

    You must be 100% clear on what a sentence ISN’T. Confusion between 2 word families is the main reason for this serious mistake.

  • Referencing mismatch

    To avoid repetition, you MUST use referencing, but IELTS punishes referencing mistakes severely. There is a single, very common mistake of this kind that will drop your score below Band 7, even if you make this mistake ONLY ONCE. It’s not considered a grammar issue, and most IELTS teachers have no idea what this mistake is.

The good news is that there is a formula that works for IELTS writing.

The T.I.P. Writing System will show you how to cover the requirements in the shortest possible way:

  • 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.

  • The shortest possible structure to cover the content requirements

    All requirements can be covered in a very short structure. This leaves you more time for checking your work.

  • The specific types of examples you MUST include for a high score

    You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to develop effective examples. You only need to know 3 ways to do this.

  • 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.

  • A much more effective way 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.

  • Master ONLY the 5 verb tenses that cover 95% of usage

    There are 12 verb tenses in English, and 8 have passive voice versions. However, you only need to master 5 of them for Band 7 level writing.

  • Master the 8 sentence structures that cover nearly every writing situation

    There are over 20 complex sentence types in English. However, you only need to master 8 of them for Band 7 level writing. Examiners are on the lookout for these.

SPECIAL OFFER: In-depth feedback on Writing Task #1 and #2 and 1-hour consultation for only $75 (value $125)

Talk to a former examiner and find out what you’re doing wrong and EXACTLY what you need to do to get Band 7 on writing. Discuss training options. 100% satisfaction guaranteed or your money back.

“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.

Any speed bumps in your writing will kill your score

Any speed bumps in your writing that slow down the examiner will result in a low score.

Examiners are under a lot of pressure. They mark 15 essays per hour so they can finish their 100 daily essays in 7 hours of marking. That’s about 4 minutes per essay, including mark input. If ANYTHING in your writing causes confusion (ideas, arrangement of ideas, vocabulary issues, grammar issues), you will not get Band 7.

Band 7 is a high standard. It means you are actually a good writer! If English is your second language, learning to write at a Band 7 level is IMPOSSIBLE to do by yourself – many students struggle for years on their own without success.

Students in my program make rapid progress and learn to write much better in only a few weeks of instruction.

I can help you get Band 7 on IELTS writing too.

  • 100% effective templates with sentence skeletons for each of the 7 writing task #2 prompt types

    These templates were developed by former examiners to help students answer the question in the SHORTEST possible way. Every second of your time on the exam has to be spent writing ONLY what is necessary. For that reason, there is only ONE optimum structure for each prompt type.

  • 80+ Band 9 models written by former native speaker examiners

    This is the most effective way to learn: model your writing on authentic examples.

    • There are hundreds of possible prompts. However, there is a lot of overlap between them. For that reason, studying prompts and high quality model responses is the best way to prepare so that you are not surprised on exam day.
  • Focus on the main grammar points you MUST know. You don’t need to master everything.

    Focus on what’s important:

    • There are 12 verb tenses plus 8 passive voice versions, but you only need to master 5 of them.
    • There are 20 complex sentence types, but you only need to master 8 of them
  • One small but critically important change you should make to the way you edit your work

    The way we’ve all been taught to edit our work doesn’t work well. There’s a much better way to do it, based on the way our brain actually understands grammar.

  • Specific, detailed feedback and follow-up lessons

    Super-specific feedback first identifies every problem with your writing, and follow-up mini lessons are recommended based on your mistakes. You then revise your work based on the feedback. Your writing is then re-checked to make sure YOU understand how to fix your work. If your writing isn’t being re-checked, the teacher has no idea if you understand how to fix it, and neither do you. That’s why writing correction services don’t help much. This is NOT the same as a writing correction service. This is real training.

Don't gamble on IELTS

IELTS is a business, a REALLY BIG business. IDP, the private company that co-owns IELTS, made over $400 MILLION USD in 2019.

IELTS makes more money when you fail. It’s that simple. They LOVE it when students take the exam repeatedly ($300 each time), HOPING for a higher score.

“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:

DateLRWSOverall
2019-10-137.596.577.5
2020-02-1387.56.577
2020-03-06886.577.5
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.”

Doctors are among the smartest people on earth, and they study hard!

BTW, this story has a happy ending. Dr. Pasha got 7.5 on writing after only 6 writing assignments with Toronto IELTS Prep:

OVERALL BAND 8.0

Reading 8.0, Listening 9.0, Writing 7.5, Speaking 7.5

“This was the best result I had. Thank you so much. I appreciate what you did for me.”

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

How is this program different? How does this program work?

Most programs show you what to do. This program TEACHES you how to write.

This is NOT just an essay correction service.

You can only learn to write by writing and re-writing. Lessons and writing corrections on their own DO NOT HELP much.

This program provides the most writing feedback and personal coaching of any writing program to help you get better faster.


Most people who join my program have purchased many other programs, read textbooks, and gotten writing corrections. This hasn’t been enough:

  • Just reading about writing doesn’t work. Every newspaper article you read is at a Band 9 level. Has this helped YOU write at a Band 9 level?
  • Just getting writing corrections is not enough either. That’s like a swimming coach showing you how HE swims, but not checking if you can do it. It doesn’t matter if the coach knows how to do it! YOU need to be able to do it.
  • If you’re not revising your writing and getting a teacher to re-check it, you are NOT LEARNING.

Research-Based Training System

This training system is based on best practices in cognitive science and education psychology:

  • Detailed teacher feedback and your revisions make writing lessons stick. If you’re not getting detailed feedback AND you’re not revising, you’re NOT learning.
  • Complex sentence training improves not just writing and speaking, but also reading and listening. It greatly increases your ability to recognize these bigger patterns.
  • Study smart, not hard! The vocabulary building system includes HIGH FREQUENCY vocabulary that often appears in academic texts. You have to know it! Spaced repetition and short, regular quizzing maximize vocabulary development and minimize study time.
  • MODELLING: Review a huge collection of over 80 Band 9 models written by native English speaker IELTS examiners

    …and understand exactly what IELTS examiners expect to see. Line-by-line analysis reveals the patterns behind successful writing.

    The best strategy is to read as many Band 9 models as you can. The course includes 80+ Band 9 models written by current and former native English speaker IELTS examiners. The models are written using the template system taught in this course. This will help you quickly get a feeling for the writing style and see how ideas are developed in the expected manner. Save thinking time be re-using these ideas in your own writing.

  • TEMPLATES: Use powerful templates that tell you exactly what you need to write in every sentence.

    These templates work 100% for all seven Writing Task #2 prompt types. They are easy to memorize and apply, and even include sentence templates that are designed to increase your Coherence and Cohesion as well as Grammatical Accuracy and Range scores. You will never be confused about how to structure your writing or what information to include.

  • TWO-STAGE REVIEW PROCESS: Have your writing reviewed TWICE

    Professional writers first show their writing to an editor before it is published. In the same way, I will assess your writing, indicate problem areas, and explain what you need to do to fix them. Then, after you have made corrections, I will check your work again and provide additional feedback and corrections.

    “Your feedback was more elaborate and was custom-tailored to each student, which indicates how much you actually care about your students.”

    Dr. Akeil A.F.

    It does not matter how weak your writing is now. With this system, your writing will improve after every single lesson. 

  • COMPLEX SENTENCES: Be comfortable using the 8 most common types of complex sentences in writing (and in speaking). Examiners are on the lookout for these.

    This program helps you master English grammar in a NEW way by focusing on sentence-level grammar rather than verb tense grammar. It’s much more fun and it leads to much BIGGER, IMMEDIATE improvements in your English.

    For writing and speaking purposes, you only need to know eight complex sentence structures. We train these structures repeatedly until you use them naturally and frequently.

    To improve listening and reading comprehension, you can study 12 additional complex sentence structures. With a little bit of practice, it becomes MUCH easier and MUCH faster to read complex texts and to listen to higher-level English. However, these additional complex sentence patterns are not necessary for speaking and writing.

  • ACADEMIC VOCABULARY BUILDING: If you are under Band 7 in reading and listening, you need to build your academic-level vocabulary.

    If you are already getting Band 7 on everything except writing, you do not need to worry about vocabulary development.

    However, if you are not getting Band 7 on reading and listening, you need a vocabulary building system because language = vocabulary. Reading and listening are really vocabulary comprehension tests.

    An AI-powered app is loaded with the most common academic vocabulary (this vocabulary is chosen based on statistical analysis of millions of academic texts) that appears all the time on IELTS reading comprehension texts. These are not subject-specific technical terms but COMMONLY USED words and phrases that you MUST KNOW!

    This app is the ultimate study buddy. The app learns which vocabulary you’re having trouble with and reviews it with you until you know it. It is exactly the same technology used by Harvard Medical School to help doctors memorize key medical terminology and concepts.

    Research also shows that you can learn most effectively by testing yourself, not by reviewing word lists. The course includes randomized vocabulary assessments with progress monitoring and reporting. This keeps you honest about how effectively you are studying.

    Of course, if you prefer, printable PDFs with all vocabulary are included. These sheets are also designed so that you can track your progress and test yourself on paper.

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.

After ONE training session, Charles Y. from China scored 7 on writing, which he needs to work as an accountant. Congratulations, Charles!

There is no doubt that without your supervision, I could not have achieved my goal. I believe your teaching is the main support which elevated my English level. Thank you very much again for your time and efforts for me.

Jan helped me to get from Band 5.5 to Band 7.5 in writing. His class was very helpful because not only does he provide very detailed feedback, but we rewrite our work and he checks it again and provides more feedback. This gives me a chance to try to fix my mistakes by myself, and to see if I really understand my problems. We would then go over the problems I really don’t understand in detail. As well, we spend a lot of time on complex sentences and grammar, which has helped me feel much more confident when I write and when I speak. Thanks to Mr. Jan’s efforts, I finally got Band 7.5 in writing.

Q. What is your most valuable advice for other students?

I believe that the secret is perseverance and confidence. It was a very hard and, simultaneously, enjoyable journey. Thank you for being a part of it and I really appreciate your help and recommendations.

Frequently asked questions:

  • For the writing feedback, can I choose all essays?

    Yes, you can. All of your writing assignments can be essays. However, for the academic exam, it is Task #1 that brings down most people’s scores. Task #1 Academic is HARD. It has its own language and conventions that require a lot practice. Moreover, there are 7 Task #1 prompt types: you absolutely need to practice them all.

  • How many writing tasks can I do per day?

    Some people do 4 writing tasks PER DAY; most people do 1-3 per week. If you want to practice intensively, we will come up with a custom schedule to make sure you receive feedback almost immediately after submitting your writing. You will then revise your writing based on my feedback and submit your revised version for a 2nd round of feedback and corrections.

  • What if I need more writing assignments?

    After you have signed up for the course, additional writing tasks are only $20 CAD (no tax, not USD). 2-stage feedback is included for all writing tasks.

  • How much practice do I need to reach Band 7? Which program should I choose?

    I strongly recommend starting with the diagnostic writing assessment. That way, we will go over your writing in detail and I can give you a specific recommendation.

    • In general, if you need to go up half a Band in writing, I recommend the 12-prompt package. This will give you an opportunity to get feedback on EVERY prompt type.
    • If you need to go up a full Band, it will take longer because Band 6 to Band 7 is a huge jump in terms of both the quality of your response and the quantity of grammar mistakes that need to be fixed. Anyone who tells you this is easy is misleading you. I would recommend 24 writing prompts for practice together with 4 private coaching sessions in order to go over issues in depth.
    • If you are a very low Band 6, I would recommend 48 writing prompts for practice together with 8 private coaching sessions. You will need a lot of support.

Course access includes all previous and future class recordings as well as class notes.

Grammar and Sentence Structure – Critical Concepts

  • Instead of studying grammar at the verb tense level, a much more powerful method is mastering the different complex sentence forms. This will improve not just writing and speaking, but also reading and listening because your brain will easily understand how ideas in long sentences are connected to each other.
  • The concepts listed below are the 8 critical concepts you MUST master for the IELTS exam. However, the course includes additional modules that cover 21 sentence structures in total.
  • Sentence structure essentials
    • Understand exactly what a sentence is and what a sentence isn’t.
    • Avoid the most serious sentence structure problems.
  • Verb Tenses
    • Master the 6 verb tenses you MUST know.
    • Avoid killer grammar problems.
  • Complex sentences #1
    • Master the 2 most common complex sentence structures.
    • Combine them to form the single most useful complex sentence structure in the English language.
  • Conditionals
    • You MUST know how to use conditionals. This is a critical structure for describing hopes and regrets, and for giving recommendations.
  • Complex sentences #2
    • Master 2 super-flexible complex structures that make your writing flow beautifully.
  • Complex sentences #3
    • Master 2 additional complex sentence structures. These are actually the simplest to understand.
    • Avoid a killer grammar issue that results from confusing 2 types of words.
  • Complex sentences #4
    • This structure, while less common, is often appropriate on Writing Task #1. It helps you avoid awkward constructions when describing data.
  • Complex sentences #5
    • This structure is essential for making suggestions. While it doesn’t follow any other pattern in English, it is one of the easiest to understand and apply.

WHAT DOES YOUR WRITING LOOK LIKE?

LET’S FIND OUT.

START WITH A THOROUGH ASSESSMENT AND CONSULTATION:

Do you want to find out by tomorrow why you’re not getting Band 7 and what you have to do to reach Band 7?

Do you want to spend money on IELTS (again and again, like many students do) and get very little useful feedback? Or do you want to spend $75 to get a CRYSTAL CLEAR understanding of what you need to write and how you need to write to get a Band 7 or higher on IELTS writing? You’ll get your written report BY THIS TIME TOMORROW. The consultation will take place within 48 hours. Satisfaction is guaranteed or your money back.

For only $75 CAD, find out EXACTLY why your writing is not at a Band 7 level. You’ll write both IELTS writing tasks, and within 24 hours, you’ll get a colour-coded writing assessment that SHOWS you where you are losing marks in each of the 4 marking categories that IELTS uses to assess your work. Then, during your consultation (a $125 value), we’ll talk about your writing in detail:

  • As soon as you order, you’ll get a choice of Writing Task #1 and #2 prompts with instructions on how to submit your work.
  • You will get INSTANT ACCESS to the most powerful lessons in my online course. For example, these lessons cover the 7 different Writing Task #2 prompts and give you powerful templates that guarantee you give the examiner EXACTLY what they are looking for in the SHORTEST way possible. You’ll see example Band 9 models with line-by-line analysis, which will help you understand how these templates are applied. You’ll be able to see if this course is right for you.
  • Within 24 hours of submitting your writing (if you submit your work by a reasonable hour, you’ll get it back the same day), you will get a Band score using the official IELTS marking criteria. Problems with your writing will be colour-coded by how serious they are so you will see what kinds of problems are causing you to lose the most marks. These problems with your writing will be explained in detail during the consultation.
  • You will receive recommendations for how to fix these problems and improve your score.

Your consultation will go over these problems in detail and clear up any confusion you have about what IELTS wants to see in a Band 7 essay.

During your consultation, you will gain a complete understanding of EXACTLY what examiners want to see in your writing and what they don’t want to see. You’ll also learn a 100% FOOLPROOF STRUCTURE that guarantees you include everything that is required for a high Band score.

Your consultation will cover:

  • how to make sure you are answering the question properly

  • how to structure your writing most effectively (we have developed 100% foolproof templates for answering each of the 7 essay prompts)

  • How to fix or avoid the grammar and vocabulary issues that are hurting your score the most

  • one small but critically important change you should make to the way you proofread your work

  • whether you need to build your vocabulary or not
