Stuck on a band 6 or 6.5 in your writing?
If you need expert feedback to find out your writing strengths and weaknesses, Home English’s essay marking service can help. As experienced IELTS teachers, we are best placed to provide you with personalised, honest and detailed feedback on your IELTS Writing Task 1 and 2 submissions.
What does this service involve?
We provide detailed feedback on every essay marked which is mapped against the IELTS band descriptors (the guidelines used by IELTS examiners when they mark your work). We pay particular attention to:
- The structure of your essay
- How well ideas and paragraphs are linked together
- The vocabulary and grammar used
- The development of your ideas (Writing Part 2)
- Whether you have focused on the most important information (Writing Part 1)
- Whether you have answered the question (Writing Part 2)
Not only will we correct all your important mistakes, but will provide suggestions on how you can improve your essay overall and, where necessary, send you worksheets or direct you to useful websites to help you work on grammar points that you may be finding difficult.
All essays are marked to the official IELTS marking criteria:
Feedback will be sent by email. In addition, we can arrange a telephone call if you require any further information at no extra cost.
What will I receive?
- A document containing detailed feedback which includes all the official IELTS marking criteria – Carlo di Sarra, essay marking proforma
- Your essay with corrections and comments – See Carlo’s essay to accompany the above feedback file
