Essay Grading Service


I can correct and grade your IELTS essays if you send them to me by email.

The cost are: 

AUD $35 for each AC (Academic) Task 1 essay

AUD $25 for each GT (General Training) Task 1 essay (a letter)

AUD $45 for each Task 2 essay, both GT and AC.


20% Discount  Every 5th essay assessed will be assessed for free. That is, the first four essays, (regardless of whether AC or GT or whether Task 1 or Task 2) will be assessed at the prices above but the fifth essay will be free. Any 6th to 9th essays will also be assessed at the normal prices but the 10th will be assessed for free, and so on.

Sorry, I am NOT prepared to write model answers at the moment. (The reasons for that are too complex to explain here.)

You will need to send the money to me before I send my report to you. Using PayPal (addressed to is the most convenient way for me. If you do not have PayPal, you can also pay me through Wechat (微信). But I use a friend in China to accept payments to me on Wechat because my Wechat wallet is not yet fully activated.

A third payment method is to pay directly into my bank account but that is more expensive than PayPal or Wechat. If you want to pay by bank transfer, send me an email to ask for my bank account details.


This is what service I will provide:


What Essay Questions to Use?

I prefer you to use questions from current or previous editions of the Cambridge IELTS Practice Tests series. You can download my copies of those questions here, AC BOOKS 5 TO and here GT

However, although I prefer essays written for those questions, if you send me an essay based on a question found on an IELTS website on the internet, I will usually assess it. But I will have to tell you that the grade or assessment I give you might not be as accurate as it would be if you had used one of the Cambridge IELTS questions.

The reason for this is that the IELTS essay questions found on IELTS blogs in China and elsewhere are sometimes inaccurately worded. Sometimes just one wrong word, or just one missing word can make a big difference to the question! This creates a problem for me in giving an accurate assessment of essays written for those questions. Certainly, IELTS websites in China omit the following words, "Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience." This wording is always part of the task you are asked to do in the real test, so omitting these words in questions on an IELTS website is not fully representing the real test questions!

Despite what you are led to believe, there is no advantage in preparing essays based on questions on IELTS websites or blogs because, unlike the Speaking test, there is almost zero predictability in the IELTS writing test questions.

If you are interested, you should first contact me by email to see if I have time to do your essays.
