I’m FIONA and I created the Members Academy to give you a quick way of finding high-quality IELTS videos, worksheets and advice all in one place.
I’ve been posting free useful IELTS material on social media for a long time and I realised that the best way I can help people is to put all of this advice in one place.
I’ve been teaching English for 28 years, and I qualified as a Speaking and Writing IELTS Examiner in 2006. I have taught students from all over the world and worked in 10 different countries with the British Council, including France, Japan, Taiwan, Poland and Sri Lanka.
I’ve used almost every IELTS coursebook and test paper that has ever

This all sounds great BUT…
Is the Academy really as good as it sounds?
YES! I’ve put my 28 years of experience teaching, examining and working with IELTS students into the Academy that I truly believe will help you improve your score if you make full use of all the materials. I’ve also chosen the best materials and done everything I can to make the lessons clear, logical and engaging.
How long will it take me to get through the materials?
There are about 100 instructional videos at the moment, plus Practice Tests for each day of the 28-Day Vocabulary Course.
I add new materials to the Academy every week and I also add ‘Quick Win’ videos in response to special requests from Academy Members. AND I’m still adding new courses!
Just do one thing a day. This will be enough practice to prepare you for the exam.
You can watch the videos as many times as you like, and do the exercises/worksheets over and over again until you feel confident that you’re getting the language, grammar and vocabulary right.
Will I be able to understand everything?
YES. I am used to working with students from all over the world, and the language that I use is clear and simple.
If you have watched my videos on YouTube, or listened to my podcasts, you will know what I sound like! I also use Powerpoints in every video so that you can see exactly what I am talking about.
The worksheets are designed to mirror what we did in the video, so there is nothing new or confusing when you do the practice exercises.
All of the worksheets also have detailed answers included and you can print them off and keep them as a reference.
Do I need to have internet access?
Can I download the videos?
At the moment, no, but you can download and keep all the worksheets and Writing Models.
You will have access to the videos as long as you are a Member in the Academy.
How long will I have access to the content?
You will be able to access the videos, Facebook group and live lessons for as long as you are a Member in the Academy.
You can download and keep the PDF materials* that are made available to you during your course.
*The extra Library of e-books will only become available to you after you have had a chance to try out the course materials and to see if they are appropriate for your level.
What if I'm not very technical?
I have made everything as easy as possible. You can access all the videos and materials on a computer, tablet or phone, just by putting in your email address and password.
Do you offer a Money Back Guarantee?
YES. You can try out the course for 2 days and if you decide it is not appropriate for your needs, you can get a full refund (though I would much prefer to get your feedback and try to make it right).
Please note that the full library of e-books and resources will only become available after you have decided to commit to the course.
What if I don't have a credit card?
I recommend that you sign up to PayPal, which is a safe way of paying online.
Who is the Academy good for?
How is the Academy different from the 28-Day Vocabulary Course?
The 28-Day Vocabulary Course and Challenge (6 weeks access for $35) is included in the Members Academy. It has daily practice of all 4 skills for each IELTS topic.
The 3-Month Study Programme has full courses for each skill, a bank of extra resources, weekly live lessons, writing feedback and a private Facebook group.
Will you mark and check my work in the Academy?
The Academy is a self-study course, so all the materials have answers and you can check everything by yourself.
If you have bought the full 3-month course, you have the option to get feedback on your writing and to ask questions during our weekly Live Lessons.
What happens after 3 months?
If you wish to continue after your 3-months is completed, you can renew your subscription at a discounted rate.
