Apart from private lessons, I offer a remote marking service for IELTS writing practice answers (task 1 or task 2).
The service includes proofreading plus a separate page of detailed feedback comments on strengths and any weaknesses that will limit the band score in each of the four marking criterion:
- Task Achievement (Task 1) / Task Response (Task 2)
- Coherence and cohesion
- Lexical Resource
- Grammatical Range and Accuracy
The criteria are described in more detail in the Band Descriptors (Public Version).
Here are three marked samples from students (shared with permission, names changed for anonymity):
You may source questions yourself or ask me for sample questions.
You may send me your answer script(s) – with question(s) attached – by email or Signal messenger app either as text files or as scanned or photographed images.
If you intend to take the computer-based IELTS test, I would recommend practicing the writing test with a text editor such as Word or Notepad.
On the other hand, if you intend to take the paper-based test, you should practice writing your answers by pencil or pen.
Students who take my lessons are welcome to submit their writing answer scripts during lessons and receive my handwritten corrections and verbal feedback during the lesson (the lesson fee would cover the cost of marking).
1 answer script (task 1 or 2): HK$600
2 or more scripts: HK$550 each
