I am a general practitioner in family medicine, from Quebec (a French environment). I need to pass the IELTS in order to get my medical license to work in an English province, here in Canada.
Now, I feel pretty good and confident about taking the IELTS exam. At first, I didn't understand the format very well. But Ryan explained to me everything I needed to know, corrected my essays (he even helped in paying attention to some details like grammatical mistakes) and gave me some useful references to practice and clear suggestions in order to succeed. I can never thank him enough for all that help!
Don't over think it and stop searching. This is a very good place to start looking for help and precise advice. Don't hesitate a second to ask all the questions you need and start using these services. Use all the help you can get to succeed on your exam. Ryan is well trained and has your success at heart. You'll never (if you're like me) regret it!
I'd recommend these services to anybody studying for the first time and also for people who already took the IELTS but didn't do very well. Whether you're a student or a qualified health professional like me, I believe your particular needs will all be met. Since I've also studied for the TOEFL, I can tell you, that even if there are some similarities between these two exams, I'd advise you to seek expert training to enhance your chance to succeed for the IELTS. It's important to know the differences and be well prepared.
The main benefit for me was to know where I stand in terms of scoring and to discover my weakness points. Now, I know exactly where I should concentrate my studies before taking the exam.
