Apart from private lessons, I offer a 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):
Practice questions may be supplied by either the student or myself.
Answer scripts may be submitted by email (as a Word document or a handwritten scanned image).
Students taking lessons may submit their answer scripts during lessons and receive handwritten corrections and verbal feedback during the lesson (cost covered by the lesson fee). Scripts handed in during lessons to be marked outside the lesson would incur a separate fee.
1 answer script (task 1 or 2): HK$600
2 or more scripts: HK$550 each
