Student Spotlight

This week’s spotlight falls on Manzar from India…

My IELTS journey to inspire

Hello everyone,

I want to share my journey with all the aspiring IELTS students, to encourage them and help them to sail through the frustrating period of attempting IELTS Test and not getting the desired score.

I attempted IELTS GT twice before approaching Andy and consistently scored 7 in writing. Writing was the pain-point in my case, as it is for most of the students.

Andy’s approach of conducting sessions is quite unique and easy to follow through during and after the session.

Step-by-step dissection of your written essay and correcting it live. At the beginning you are introduced with the mistakes of your essay with general examples end following that we have to correct the essay with Andy’s guide and help.

This way we can release and locate our own mistakes.

Overall the sessions are very useful, working on your writing skills with Andy not only improves writing skill but also helps in reading and listening skills.

Andy ensures the sessions are very productive and not robotic.

He is also flexible in re-scheduling and session rates based on the number of session bought


I would like to share my IELTS score

L: 9

R: 9

W: 7.5

S: 8.5
