At the beginning of September I had just moved into my new flat and unfortunately had no internet connection. Under normal circumstances this isn’t a problem, but Yvonne HAD LESS THAN 2 DAYS for her IELTS exam. Insane.

To get an internet connection I had to go to the library, to MacDonalds, to Starbucks, and even empty my phone data plan!

Thankfully though it all worked out wonderfully!

Yvonne bought the IELTS Sentence Guide on Thursday, worked with me Online, listened to all the tutorials, did all the work, sent all the essays then 15 days later sent me a fantastic email joyfully explaining her new IELTS score!

Have a read below for the whole story, then get in contact if you have your exam soon! I would live to help more students!

Hello Ben ,

My name is Aous , I have the IELTS on 5 April , so 4 more days to go , I have done before and got 7.5 in all sections except writing I got only 5 and I am really worried about it this time as well

very sad just discovered your website now , I am not sure if it is later since only few days remaining for the exam ,

I am watching the video for task 2 writing and seems really useful

My reply:

Hi mate!
Just 4 days!!!! OMG!!!!!
just joking, there is still time!

If you want you can type your IELTS essay to this question, send me an email, and I will have a quick look.

Improvements in health, education and trade are essential for the development of poorer nations. However, the governments of richer nations should take more responsibility for helping the poorer nations in such areas. To what extent do you agree?

Aousien -after 4 days of study with me and theĀ Sentence Guide, he finally gets his IELTS exam results (17 days after the exam).
