Should I take this course?

Have you taken the IELTS Writing exam in the past and not received the Band 7 or above you needed?

Are you taking the IELTS Writing exam for the first time and want to have the best essay writing preparation available?

Do you want to be taught by an instructor who teaches IELTS Writing every day, and has already helped thousands of students to improve their English and realise their IELTS goals, from Band 6 to Band 8 and beyond?

If you answered 'yes' to any of the questions above, then this course is for you.

Do not waste time and money on exam after exam after exam. Take this course to improve your English, learn the tips, tools and techniques to get the band score you need, and achieve IELTS Writing success now.

How will this course help me?

This course will teach you how to write what the IELTS examiners want to read in IELTS Writing Task 2. It is aimed at students who are trying to achieve Band 7, but will also be extremely valuable for any students aiming for Band 6 or Band 8. Even Band 9 students will learn something new here. It is applicable to both the Academic and GT modules.

You might think that the IELTS examiners only care about a wide range of vocabulary, correct spelling and accurate grammar. This is wrong. These are all important, but there is so much more you can do to boost your score.

Mastering IELTS Writing: Task 2 tells you exactly what you need to know to succeed in this English language exam.

During this course, you will:

  • understand how the IELTS exam, and the writing test in particular, is structured and how it should be approached

  • learn how to write an answer to any Writing Task 2 question after learning how to recognise different question types

  • learn how to manage your time wisely, how to plan your essay effectively, and how to structure your writing appropriately

  • learn how to create 'flow' in your essays so that you can begin to write like a native

  • find out how to increase your range of vocabulary quickly and effectively

  • study the steps you need to take in order to achieve grammatical range and accuracy

  • learn many of the 'secrets of success' that will help you to get the best score possible

  • learn an effective 3-step formula for writing introductions and conclusions, so more time can be spent on the body of the essay

  • begin to feel confident, assured and increasingly prepared for the writing test in your next IELTS exam

What do you use to teach your course?

There are three key ingredients in the Mastering IELTS Writing: Task 2 course:

  • Lessons. The lessons in this course work. I know this because of the high scores of my past students. The lessons are clear, direct, and focused entirely on improving the quality of your writing skills. We will waste no time.

  • Materials. The materials I have included in this course are the materials which have helped my past students to score band 7 and above in the IELTS exam. These high-quality materials include helpful, clear descriptions of IELTS techniques, model answers to IELTS writing questions, and common mistakes to avoid. Everything you see in this course is a collection of all the techniques I have learnt over the years with my many IELTS students. 

  • Teacher. My name is Matt, and I run a website called The IELTS Teacher. I am a British native with a Bachelor's Degree in English, and have been helping students to learn English since 2008. In 2013, I launched The IELTS Teacher. I created this website because I wanted to help students to pass their IELTS exams with lessons via Skype and screen-sharing, as well as Writing Corrections. I have already taught thousands of 1-to-1 IELTS lessons, and helped hundreds of students towards their target scores.

  • So what are you waiting for? Enrol on the course today and let's get you started on the road to IELTS success.

    What people are saying

    so far

    At first I thought it was maybe going to be like any other youtube video on IELTS but the way it builds up on every bit of information and first gives a general view and then expands has helped me greatly to understand what I need to do so far.

    The course , I 've learned so far, helps me to improve the better foundation of writing skill.

    I think so far matt didn’t structure the videos for that it’s worthy of listening to a layperson from africa without such an advanced web based learning experience I like the techniques used to formulate ideas and how to expand them.

    But with this course, I'm confident again and I believe that following the course approach would help me to write a good task 2 essay in my next exam I have completed the Task 1 course and just like Task 1 this is very informative so far.

    I believe it has been a lot of introduction, and not a lot of actual practice so far.

    So far it serves the purpose.

    Great It is easy to understand moreover it improves my knowledge excellent so far This course gave me valuable information.

    I can assure you will not regret buying any services from Matt is one of the experienced teacher I have known so far.

    I started the course and it sounds good so far.

    I really liked how he correlates everything he teaches with the IELTS band descriptors.

    Matt rainsubury is the perfect tutor for the course as he goes on explaining it focusing the band descriptors in every section.

    Now I know what exactly do band descriptors mean and what examiners lookout for.

    each type

    Keep improving :) Rgds Tutor explain very well, everything is clear and I guess positively affect result of test, the only thing that I expect is an example of writing for each type of question.

    However, it would be really appreciated if you can include at least one sample essay for each type of essay question.

    If only there were another two or three more demo essays for each type of question, this would be much more greater.

    I wish the instructor would have made a template for each type of essay, so a student can quickly write an introduction and conclusion.
