This powerful learning system developed by an IELTS ex-examiner gives you the SPECIFIC and DETAILED feedback you need to make rapid improvements in your writing, even if your writing is terrible right now.

You will learn EXACTLY what you have to write and how to write in order to get Band 7 on writing.


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

Dr. Dina S.


IELTS writing is marked very hard if you are trying to get Band 7. Why?

  • Band 6 means you are at an intermediate level, and lots of mistakes are acceptable at this level.
  • Band 7, on the other hand, means you are at an advanced level. You cannot have many mistakes at this level.

In 2019, 3,724,780 IELTS exams were written. The average scores were low, and writing, by far, was the lowest score:

Academic exam

  • Average overall Band score for females: 6.1
  • Average writing Band score for females: 5.7
  • Average overall Band score for males: 6.04
  • Average writing Band score for males: 5.6

General exam

  • Average overall Band score for females: 6.6
  • Average writing Band score for females: 6.2
  • Average overall Band score for males: 6.6
  • Average writing Band score for males: 6.1

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


These FOUR GRAMMAR KILLERS will prevent you from getting the score you need. Do you make these mistakes?

1. Subject-verb agreement problems: If you always or often forget to put the “s” at the end of verbs when the subject is he/she/it, you won’t get Band 7. If you’re not sure if a long subject is singular or plural, you won’t get Band 7.

  • Playing violent video games are associated with mental and physical disorders among children.
  • Playing violent video games IS associated with mental and physical disorders among children.
    • Watch out for subject-verb agreement in long subjects that include both singular and plural nouns. In this case, the subject is “playing,” NOT “violent games.”

2. Run-on sentences: If you use a comma to separate 2 complete sentences, you won’t get Band 7.

  • Most people drive to work, some people take the bus.
  • Most people drive to work. Some people take the bus.
    • You can’t split 2 independent clauses with a comma (if you don’t know what an independent clause is, you’re in big trouble).

3. Sentence fragments: If you don’t know why this isn’t a sentence, you won’t get Band 7.

  • Although the problems it causes for the environment are severe.
  • The problems it causes for the environment are severe.
    • “Although” begins a dependent clause, which needs an independent clause to make sense. You can’t have a dependent clause by itself (if you don’t know what a dependent clause is, you’re in big trouble).

4. Pronoun-antecedent problems: If your pronouns don’t match the nouns they refer to, you won’t get Band 7.

  • These issues cause many problems and it won’t be solved in one day.
  • These issues cause many problems and THEY won’t be solved in one day.

Advanced level writers don’t make these grammar mistakes. If your writing suffers from these serious grammar problems, you won’t get Band 7. These are the biggest grammar mistakes that students make, and there are many smaller mistakes that can also result in a low score if they are frequent.


It’s not just grammar problems that will hurt your score. These next FOUR KILLERS related to content and connections will MURDER your score, even if your grammar and vocabulary are excellent.

(Even ESL teachers get low scores on IELTS for these reasons.)

25% of your score is based on how well you actually answer the question and 25% is based on how smoothly your ideas flow. This has nothing to do with grammar or vocabulary. These mistakes affect ALL students, even those who make ZERO grammar mistakes:

  1. Confusing explanations and unrelated ideas: If your explanations don’t make sense or it is unclear how they are related to the prompt, you won’t get Band 7.
  2. Vague ideas: If your explanations are vague rather than specific, you won’t get Band 7.
  3. Lack of specific examples: Most people don’t understand what kinds of examples IELTS is looking for. If your body paragraphs don’t have the right kinds of examples, you won’t get Band 7.
  4. Inadequate transitions: If it’s unclear how your ideas are connected because your sentences don’t have sufficient and appropriate transitions between ideas, you won’t get Band 7.

Why is it so hard to get Band 7?

  • Going from Band 5 to Band 6 is easy.
  • Going from Band 6 to Band 6.5 is easy.
  • Going from Band 6.5 to Band 7 is HARD.

Band 6 or 6.5 means your writing is OK but still causes confusion. You can get to Band 6 or 6.5 and still have a lot of minor grammar mistakes, but this is enough for starting university or college.

Band 7 is marked VERY hard because it is advanced level English. It means your writing is good enough for professional purposes. To get Band 7, you need “frequent error-free sentences”. You can only “make a few errors” and still get Band 7.

This is what Band 5, Band 6, and Band 7 essays look like. What does YOUR writing look like?

  • Yellow highlights indicate minor issues.
  • Orange indicates awkward language/word choice issues.
  • Red indicates serious grammar problems that will KILL your score.
  • Grey indicates development issues. These will hurt your score on the content development requirements.

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 to mark 15 essays PER HOUR. If your ideas cause ANY confusion, you’re NOT getting Band 7.

The examiner marks 15 essays per hour so she can finish her 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.

In other words, your writing must actually be good to get Band 7.

If English is your second language, writing at a Band 7 level is IMPOSSIBLE to do by yourself – many students struggle for years on their own without success. This situation is not unique to IELTS. Band 7 means “advanced level” English – it’s almost impossible to get to an advanced level in ANYTHING on your own without special coaching.

WHY ARE THESE MISTAKES SO HARD TO FIX?

The reason so many students struggle with writing is simply because they have never developed good writing habits. Our schools, using the wrong methods, have made the study of writing and grammar an incredibly hard task. Most students have suffered through years of grammar worksheets and writing lessons, and have benefited very little from this instruction.

In contrast, students in my program make rapid progress, and learn to write much better in only a few weeks of instruction. The basic principle is the formation of good writing habits. Anyone can learn to write correctly by constantly using the correct forms. But how are you supposed to learn these correct forms?

How much is it costing you in time, money, and stress to not have the results you need?

Do you want to cross this bridge faster?

Your time is too valuable for guesswork. Personal coaching from a former examiner is the fastest way to reach Band 7.

You do not have to keep guessing what to do to get Band 7. I will help you bridge the gap between your current writing level and Band 7 with personal coaching. Step by step, we will fix every problem that prevents you from getting the score you need.

How can you help me raise my score quickly?

This is not a one-size-fits-all course. You will get laser-targeted feedback based on the problems that you have on IELTS writing. The feedback is specific and tells you exactly what to do to fix your problems.


“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!”

Dr. Ghazaleh P.


I help busy professionals and hard-working students reach their IELTS goals, even if their writing is terrible!

For the last 20 years, I have been teaching people how to master academic English writing, helping them get into the toughest programs at the best schools, qualify for immigration, and get promoted at work.

I’m an IELTS trainer, former IELTS examiner, and current high school grade 12 English teacher. I’ve taught essay writing in the Seneca College and UOIT academic writing preparation programs. I’ve worked as a corporate trainer at big insurance and IT companies, helping workers improve their writing skills, communicate more effectively with customers, and get promoted.

This program uses unique practice exercises developed over 20 years, combined with the same techniques that professional writers use to improve their writing skills, to help you become a better writer. I patiently mentor every student until they have developed the habits of using correct grammar forms and structuring their work in the most effective way. My feedback is specific and detailed, helping students fix problem areas one at a time until they are consistently writing at a Band 7 level. Follow-up exercises are laser-targeted at problem areas until those problems disappear.

These methods allow proper writing habits to form quickly, and my students make rapid progress.

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

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 $45 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 with SPECIFIC feedback and recommendations. The in-depth consultation will take place within 48 hours. Satisfaction is guaranteed or your money back.

This is what you will get:

For only $45 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 $75 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

  • which grammar issues you need to focus on, and which ones you don’t need to worry about (you’ll have access to the follow-up lessons)

  • whether you need to build your vocabulary or not

  • If needed, receive a speaking assessment during your video conference.

Within 24 hours, you will find out what’s wrong with your writing and what you need to do to reach Band 7.

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.

This is a very different program.

It is based on the same system used by all professional writers to improve their writing skills:

1. MODELLING: Review Band 9 models written by IELTS writing examiners

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

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

These templates work 100%. They are easy to memorize and apply to all writing prompts. You will never be confused about how to structure your writing or what information to include.

3. 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.


“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.


Revision is the secret ingredient:

  • After you get feedback on your writing, you will do follow-up exercises from a large library of writing and grammar lessons that laser-target your problem areas.
  • Then you will revise your work.
  • I will check it again so that we both know if you can fix your problems. I’ll suggest better ways to express your ideas, fix the grammar problems and provide explanations, and give you additional follow-up assignments as needed.

Your writing will get better with each writing assignment.

This is the exact same system used by ALL professional writers to get better.

I use a unique, two-stage writing program because only getting feedback after writing doesn’t work. If you don’t revise your writing and show the teacher again, the teacher has no idea if you understood the feedback, and neither do you. You absolutely MUST REVISE your work and have it rechecked. Every professional writer shows their work to an editor for feedback. Then the writer revises their work based on the editor’s feedback, and shows it to the editor again for more feedback. This is the ONLY process that works and you need to follow the same process if you want quick results.

This is how the process works:

    1. Crack the code on EXACTLY what the IELTS Examiner is looking for. For each prompt, review the best structure, read a Band 9 model with structural analysis (this explains the purpose of every sentence in every paragraph), and complete the preparation exercises. You then do your writing under exam conditions and submit your work to the teacher.
    2. You receive detailed teacher feedback using IELTS marking criteria on content requirements, organization, vocabulary, and grammar issues. You also receive follow-up lessons that laser-target your problem areas.
    3. You revise your work.
    4. You then receive a second round of detailed teacher feedback. In this stage, I give you vocabulary suggestions to improve your writing, fix grammar problems and provide explanations for changes, and give you additional follow-up lessons that focus on your problem areas.

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

4. COMPLEX SENTENCES: Be comfortable using the 7 most common types of complex sentences in writing (and in speaking). Examiners are on the lookout for these.

Lessons are included for all 7 required complex sentence structures as well as 13 others that you don’t need to produce, but which will improve reading and listening comprehension.

Complex sentences training is extremely important not just for writing and speaking, but also for listening and reading comprehension.

  1. For writing and speaking purposes, you only need to know seven complex sentence structures. We train these seven structures repeatedly until you use them naturally and frequently.
  2. To improve listening and reading comprehension, you need to know 20 complex sentence structures. If you don’t know these structures, it’s very difficult to understand how different parts of a long sentence go together. With a little bit of practice, it becomes MUCH easier and MUCH faster to read complex texts and to listen to higher-level English.

Understanding a language is about pattern recognition and sentence structures are the main patterns in English. You MUST be able to recognize these patterns INSTANTLY so that your brain can focus on the meaning of what you see and hear. Otherwise, if you don’t know these complex sentence patterns, your brain will not know the difference between important content words and structural words. This is because every complex sentence has a lot of structural vocabulary that doesn’t really mean anything; it just shows the relationship between different ideas in a sentence.

This program lets 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.

Click here to view the grammar and complex sentences curriculum covered in this course.

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

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. The app learns which vocabulary you’re having trouble with and reviews it until you know it using very short, frequent review sessions. It is exactly the same technology used by Harvard Medical School to help doctors memorize key medical terminology and concepts.

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

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

First, good writing and speaking require precise vocabulary. Second, listening and reading comprehension are really vocabulary tests, and guessing words from context DOES NOT WORK if you don’t already know over 90% of the vocabulary. For that reason, a powerful vocabulary building system is included in this course.

The AI vocabulary building app is the same system used by Harvard Medical School to help doctors memorize medical terminology and concepts.

The intelligent vocabulary building app is loaded with vocabulary that is GUARANTEED to appear on IELTS. This intermediate and advanced level vocabulary represents over 95% coverage of words that appear on typical academic texts. These are not subject-specific technical terms but COMMONLY USED words and phrases that you MUST KNOW!

How does the vocabulary building system work?

  1. The AI-powered app will notify you when it’s time to study, and then give you the optimum number of vocabulary items to review in a fun, easy-to-use flash card format.  Each study session is only a few minutes long because research shows that it’s easier to learn vocabulary with short, frequent reviews throughout the day. This is far more effective than cramming! The app takes care of vocabulary review for you: it tells you WHAT to study and WHEN to study. The app learns which vocabulary is easy for you and which vocabulary is hard, and it focuses on the vocabulary that you’re having trouble with. It’s the smartest study buddy on earth!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

You will experience a MASSIVE vocabulary boost by using this system.

Every part of this training system has been developed based on best practices in cognitive science and educational psychology, as well as principles of accelerated learning. You will be ready for IELTS in the fastest possible time.

Why DOES this program work?

This writing program has been developed using best practices in cognitive science and educational psychology. It is the fastest way to learn because it is not based on guesswork. It is based on systems and methods that are proven to work 100% for anyone who wants to improve their writing skills.

This is NOT a do-it-yourself online course. You will be assisted by me personally 100% of the way. All of your writing will receive extensive written feedback. Many students are happy to receive written feedback only. However, if you need face-to-face support, 1-1 video conference classes are available.

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.

Integrated Reading Comprehension

An extensive integrated reading comprehension program is included.

Based on extensive analysis I’ve conducted, IELTS reading comprehension texts range from grade 10 to 3rd-year university level. They are hard! The texts used in this course have been specially selected to match this difficult reading level and prepare you for the test.

How are readings integrated?

  • All high frequency academic vocabulary in these readings is included in the vocabulary building system. This vocabulary ALWAYS appears in IELTS texts. 100% of the 1600 words, phrases, collocations, and large language chunks in the vocabulary building system are FREQUENTLY used in academic and business English. This is vocabulary you MUST KNOW for school and work.
  • Each unit in the course is based on themes that are used most often for IELTS writing and speaking prompts: communication, education, work, the environment, transportation, demographics, health, culture. The readings in each unit will give you great ideas to support your writing and speaking responses.

Fast and Flexible Learning

You can start immediately no matter where you are. All prices are in Canadian dollars, not US dollars.

  • Instant access to all training materials
  • Flexible assignment scheduling: complete assignments at your own pace
  • Unlimited access to VIP Q+A, where I personally answer your questions

The focus of this program is on WRITING, not reading about writing! If you are not writing a lot, it is impossible to learn quickly. We use a powerful 3-stage process that helps you learn to write well (it’s the same process that writers use with editors, because IT WORKS!):

  1. Model examples of successful writing. We use a technique that has helped countless professional writers develop their skills to a high level. Complete additional preparation exercises.
  2. Complete your writing and receive detailed feedback as well as laser-targeted follow-up lessons based on your errors.
  3. Revise your work based on my feedback. Receive a second round of feedback with full corrections and explanations for changes.

Your writing will improve after every assignment!

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.

OVERALL BAND 7.5

Reading 7, Listening 7, Writing 7.5, Speaking 7.5

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.

I asked Jan for help with my IELTS exam preparation because high score was extremely important for my immigration process. Jan’s approach is very different from what I’ve seen before. Jan pays a lot of attention to details and accurately identifies the systematic mistakes. For each of them Jan has a  respective course with both theoretical part and practical assignments. With Jan’s course I boosted my Writing from 6.0 to 7.0 in 5 weeks! I strongly recommend you take Jan’s course to prepare for IELTS exam properly and to get the highest score!

WHAT DOES YOUR WRITING LOOK LIKE?

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 $45 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 $45 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 $75 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

  • which grammar issues you need to focus on, and which ones you don’t need to worry about (you’ll have access to the follow-up lessons)

  • whether you need to build your vocabulary or not

  • If needed, receive a speaking assessment during your video conference.

Within 24 hours, you will find out what’s wrong with your writing and what you need to do to reach Band 7.
