strongly recommend people who are seeking to obtain a score of 7 or
higher in IELTS to work with Tish immediately. Prior to a lesson with
Tish, I took IELTS for few times and I always obtained either a score of
6.5 or 6 in writing task. So, I took lessons with Tish within 2
weeks. After that, I finally got a score of 7 in writing. Tish is an
excellent teacher with good communication skills which I always feel
comfortable and productive during and after each lesson. Thank you so
"Myself and a friend of mine suddenly found ourselves in a weird situation
where we had only 2 weeks to improve our IELTS writing score from
notoriously repeating 6.5 to the required 7. A decision was taken to
ask an expert for help. If it hadn't been for Patricia, I doubt we would
have achieved our goal of scoring 7 in writing. She has been consistent, very
motivating and worked precisely on our mistakes. As a result, we've both
got 7 in writing after just 2 weeks extensive training under Patricia's
control. I am advising her to my friends as well."
"My name is Hoang (Henry) Le. I was desperately in need of obtaining
IELTS 7.0 overall for migration purposes in August 2009. Having failed in a few attempts, I decided to
contact Patricia (Tish) for IELTS writing and speaking lessons. I chose her among a number of qualified
IELTS/English tutors in Brisbane due to her outstanding profile and extraordinary experience as an ESL
teacher and IELTS examiner. What a decision! The effective lessons and critical feedback she gave
helped me to secure IELTS overall band 8.0 (R: 8.5, L: 8.0, W: 8.0, S: 8.0). Thank you so much for help Tish!"
"I wanted to say how thankful I am for your
support and language feedback. I believe IELTS test is not just a simple
English test but it can change peoples' lives. "I've been
studying the test for 8 months and received my feedback from various
people who have absolutely no knowledge in the IELTS. You are such an
expert in that area and do know what to expect in the writing. "Now, I can stay in Australia. I love Australia and it became my second home."
previous three IELTS test attempts I did well enough with reading and
listening, but got stuck with 6.5 in writing and speaking. While reading
and listening skills could be readily improved by self-learning and
doing exercises freely available on the web, the advance in writing and
speaking required a feedback from an experienced tutor. Moreover, both
writing and speaking are evaluated subjectively and one needs an IELTS
expert to learn the specific things which are necessary to impress
examiners. My acquaintance, who managed to pass IELTS quite easily,
recommended me Tish’s courses.
"I am very glad that I took his advice
because finally, I got my 7 scores. YES-IELTS is exactly the place for
somebody like me who needs 7 in all IELTS modules but cannot reach it
because of the gap between 6 or 6.5 and 7 requirements.
"The courses are
exceedingly targeted and give all the tricks needed for success. I
regret only that my overconfidence prevented me from going for Tish’s
tuition from the start of my IELTS preparations. It would have saved me
so much time and trouble."
"You are an
excellent IELTS teacher! You corrected my writing to a whole new level.
It just sounds better with all your polishing!"
"I have completed my courses in the uni and just lodged my application
for the permanent residency. Thank you for the help with my IELTS which
is very important and critical to me. Wish you well and every success
of your business."
my name is Antony Shelly and, I just finished my Bachelors in Nursing.
For the registration purpose I needed a score of 7 in all
modules of IELTS. In three of my
previous attempts, each time I got a score of 6.5 in writing. I did not have a
clue where I was going wrong in writing, until one of my friends suggested Tish.
On my very next attempt I got a score of 7.5 in writing. She exactly
pointed out the mistakes that I was making and suggested strategies to correct
"Tish provides classes according to
your requirements. She is quite flexible with her classes. If you think you require more
training, then I would recommend the whole package which she offers to all
students. Moreover, Tish is quite friendly: someone you can easily get along with which makes the learning environment
more relaxing and comforting.
"If anyone is experiencing or having doubts about
his or her writing skills, then look no further - just go to Tish. I can definitely
guarantee that you will pass with flying colours. Thank you Tish for giving me
your valuable advice which really paid off."

Tish! If it had not been for your feedback, I couldn't have hit a band 8
in the writing test. Scoring a band 8 - particularly in the writing
test - is no easy task. All the same, with the tips given by Tish, I had
a firmer grasp of the writing test and knew what areas I needed to work
harder on and pay more attention to.
"Tish possesses relevant and
invaluable experience in marking essays, and because of this, she gave
me feedback and suggestions that helped me improve very quickly and
pointed me towards a higher level, enabling me to get a higher band
"If you want to improve yourself or want to learn the basics of
IELTS writing from scratch, Tish is second to none. I'm sure under
Tish's expert guidance, you will make a marked difference. Start
preparing for the test earlier, and you will attain your goal very
about Tish from Dominic Cole's website (which is most recommended by the
way) and actually I feel that taking lessons with Tish was one of my
smartest moves on my way to sit the IELTS.
"She has been most helpful in diagnosing my weaknesses as well as my skills.
"Her remarks have been always much detailed and well put in such a way that has always been effective. Thanks Tish."
