I have a small number of special VIP students who I work with on their IELTS Speaking and Writing (though sometimes we also do reading and listening strategies).

This is a select small group. In addition to having access to all of my online resources, I work together individually on Skype, Google Docs, and via email to help them with specific language and skill problems.

In addition to personal attention and feedback, I also develop and give these students personal language development activities and tasks.

To join this program, you must apply. I am very selective about the students I take, and I only take a few at a time.

    Task 2
    Computers are being used more and more in education. Some people say that this is a positive trend, while others argue that it is leading to negative consequences.

    Recently many people are concerned about the use of computers in schooling. The question is, should we see it as a positive situation or should we see it as a negative thing?. In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with it. This essay will discuss both points of view.

    1. You only need one of the second sentences. Also, it is better not to provide your opinion in this situation, because you will discuss everything and then give your opinion at the end.

  5. Hi Ben Adams, is their any review from student about your writing ideas? I mean some one
    take the IELTS.
