ielts essay correction

Getting a high band score for IELTS writing is difficult. Despite all your efforts, you keep scoring band 6.5! 😩 You study harder and harder but your score stays the same. It seems that nothing can push you up to band 7. Why?

We need feedback on our writing in order to improve. Without knowing our mistakes, we cannot change them. It’s that simple. Only with a qualified IELTS expert providing you detailed feedback can you reasonably expect to score band 7 or higher.

What do others say about my IELTS writing correction service?

The TED-IELTS writing correction service is a great example of a high quality service for an affordable price. Every correction includes so many details and suggestions that I had been spending hours analysing the feedback. It is also amazing how fast David sends back corrected essays even if one submits him an essay exploring a subject of their own choice. David’s sample answers are always full of advanced elements and instantiate perfect grammar, vocabulary, and sensible use of
cohesive devices.

Mr. David would correct the essays very carefully, with extra links if he finds you have some weakness. It is very helpful to have the essay correction since he can help you find out what makes you lose scores and what blindpoints you have. The price is also decent, especially there is a great discount with 20 essays. It can improve scores immediately after you read what Mr. David points out, modifies and comments on your original essays and do as he says.

Hi, my name’s Nina Beust and I teach ESL students. I have been working with the IELTS exam for the past 7 years and since 2019 all my students have had their reports and essays corrected by David. Because I always have students taking the test, I can assure you that his correction is flawless. Not only are the band estimates precise, but also his feedback is extremely useful and has helped my students achieve their goals in the IELTS Writing test. I believe I have already placed more than 50 orders by now, and I plan on continuing doing so.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I pay for this service?

You can order through the links above. This will let you either pay via Paypal or Stripe. If Paypal is blocked in your country, you should still be able to order with a credit card using Stripe.

Do you accept other forms of payment?

Yes. Please e-mail me at and I will try to arrange something else. I can accept:

  • Alipay
  • Payoneer
  • Transferwise
  • Bitcoin
  • Other cryptocurrencies
Do I choose my own writing question, or do you provide them?

You can send me any sort of IELTS writing question you like but I recommend you to choose from this list of IELTS writing questions. Why?

  • Many questions published online are fake.
  • Many of them are filled with spelling and grammar mistakes.
  • These can actually make your English skills worse!
What kind of IELTS essays do you accept?

I can help you with:

✔ Academic IELTS Task 1

✔ Academic IELTS Task 2

✔ General IELTS Task 1

✔ General IELTS Task 2

Is there a deadline for submitting my essay?

No, you can send me your essay at any time. I will mark it within 24 hours of receiving it.

Is there a limit to the word count?

For IELTS writing, you should aim to write at least 150 words for task 1 and 250 words for task 2. However, you should also avoid writing too many words. This is explained here. In terms of my essay corrections, I reserve the right to reject any essay that is more than 400 words as this is far too long for IELTS. 

Do you do other kinds of editing?

I am an editor of books as well. I have edited many things in my life, including government documents, magazine articles, and work on a literary journal. If you want me to edit something for you that is not related to IELTS, please just send me an e-mail.

What kind of feedback will I receive?

I assess your writing according to the IELTS writing marking rubric. I check:

  • grammar
  • spelling errors
  • punctuation
  • cohesive devices
  • task achievement 
  • structure 
  • logical flow

If you have any problems, I will fix them and then show you why they were wrong.

I'm a teacher. Can you mark my students' essays for me?

Yes. However, please make that clear when you send your essays. This service was designed with the intention of marking individual students’ essays and my feedback is personalised. 

What is an IELTS writing correction service?

It is a system where you send your essay to an expert to help you recognise and fix problems. You receive:

  • edits and comments on your writing
  • a sample answer
  • estimated band score
  • enough feedback so that you can study smarter to achieve a higher score.
Should I send all of my essays together?

No, it’s completely up to you but I recommend you to:

  1. send one essay
  2. learn from the corrections
  3. learn from the accompanying sample band 9 essay
  4. implement them in your next essay
  5. submit new essay
  6. repeat
Does one essay include both task 1 and task 2?

No. One essay is one essay. It is not two essays. You can send me either task 1 or task 2.

The reason is that most people need to practise a certain essay type (for example, task 2) and so they might order a 20-essay package and focus entirely on that. This gives them more flexibility.
