A set of carefully-made videos will introduce and review key strategies and language.



My daily vocabulary worksheets will help you practise the new language and test yourself regularly.


Each day includes a Writing task focused on one specific area and it builds gradually towards writing high-scoring models.

Private Facebook Group

The closed ’28-Day Planners’ group will give you a chance to ask questions and share experiences and links with other like-minded students, and get feedback and support!

LINKS to further practice

Each lesson includes carefully-chosen Lifetime Learning Links that you can save and use to build learner-independence.


Feedback Videos

Want to know what the examiner is thinking? I’ve made 100s of feedback videos and share some of the best ones.

Access to me!

I am always on hand to answer your questions. I will be in the Facebook group every day to check how you’re doing, respond to your questions and give accurate and expert advice.

Writing Models

You will get a booklet of Task 1 and Task 2 models to refer back to and use as revision.

Task 1 and Task 2

The course covers both Task 1 and Task 2 Essentials (Weeks 1 and 2) and Advanced (Weeks 3 and 4).

I’m FIONA and I created the 28-Day Writing Course to give you a comprehensive guide to preparing for the IELTS test.

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 been written.

My goal is very simple: to share the most accurate, useful and clear advice in the simplest way for as many people as possible. I want my courses to be easily accessible anywhere in the world.

And I want people to be able to get the essential practice they need, not just the information. The Members Academy courses do exactly that.

Even if you’ve done lots of other courses or read lots about IELTS online, this will help you see clearly and focus on the areas you need most.

The Writing  Course gives you:

28+ videos which take you step-by-step through the Essentials to Advanced Skills in writing

28+ daily motivational emails to help you work through the course

28+ worksheets to practise what you’ve learnt in the video

A booklet of Task 1 Model Answers to help you revise before your test

A booklet of Task 2 Model Answers with ideas and arguments on a variety of topics colour-coded to follow specific structures

28+ Lifetime Learning Links to help you work independently and find the best ways to get help 

Real feedback videos so you can see what the examiner is thinking

28 x the best learning tools you might not have heard of

28 x Key Vocabulary Quizzes to review key topics

A private Facebook Group

The Members Academy discount – access the community, full suite of courses and feedback opportunities

12 weeks of access to me!

This all sounds great BUT…

Do I get the whole course at the start?

NO. I designed the course so that you learn step by step. You get access to ONE lesson each day.

You don’t need to do everything in each lesson.

I strongly recommend that you watch the video and do one worksheet each day.

How is this course different from the 3-Month Study Programme?

The 28-Day Writing Course and Challenge (3 months’ access for $49) is included in the Members Academy. You get access to one new lesson each day.

The 28-Day Vocabulary Course and Challenge (3 months’ access for $49) is included in the Members Academy. It has daily practice of all 4 skills for each IELTS topic. You get access to one new lesson each day.

The 3-Month Study Programme (4 months’ access for $129) has full courses for each skill, a bank of extra resources, weekly live lessons, writing feedback and a private Facebook group. You get full access to all the courses as soon as you join.


How long will I have access to the materials?

You can download all the materials and keep them forever. You will have access to the materials plus any others that I add for 4 months.

Will I be able to understand everything?

All of the videos have slides where the instructions are very clear.

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?

YES. The course is fully online.

But unlike most online courses, you get a worksheet for every video that you can print off – with colour-coded answers and full explanations, which give you real practice and help you see progress quickly.

Can I download the videos?

You will not be able to download my tuition videos. You will have access to them as long as you are on the course.

How long will I have access to the course?

You will be able to access the lesson, videos and Facebook group for as long as the course lasts (28 Days) plus an extra two months to go back, review and catch up. You will also have access to any extra materials I create.

You can download and keep the PDF materials that are made available to you during your course.

*Some of the other links on the Home Page are only available to full Academy Members, so there may be some links that will not work for you.

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 will not receive the whole course at the start. You will receive one lesson each day for 28 days.

If you are not 100% happy with the first lesson (Day 1), or you think it may not be the right level for you, you can get a refund though I would much prefer to get your feedback and try to make it right!

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.

I'm doing General Training. Is the course right for me?

General Training Writing Task 2 is an essay, so Weeks 3 and 4 will be useful for you, but not the Task 1 materials.

I have a separate course for General Training in the Members Academy and am planning to do a GT Challenge soon.

Will you mark and check my writing?

This is a self-study course, so all the materials have answers and you can check everything by yourself.

Unfortunately I can’t mark everyone’s writing – the aim of the course is to build self-study skills and learner independence so that you don’t need to rely on a teacher to correct your work.

However, you can ask questions in the Facebook group if there are any grammar/vocabulary areas you are unsure about. We have a few other teachers in the group who would be happy to help.

Individual Writing Feedback and assessment is available in the Members Academy and at a discounted rate once you join.


What happens after the course is finished?

After 4 months, you will no longer have access to the course. If you wish to join the Members Academy at this stage, you will be able to join at a reduced fee of $75 (full price $129).

How much work will I have to do?

This is up to you!

The best way to make the most of the course is to engage with the materials – print them off, write on them, take notes, make lists and review them daily.

You will need to set aside a minimum one hour a day for this if you really want to see progress.
