Fluency and coherence Lexical resource
Is capable and willing to respond at length to each question and utilises some linking devices effectively (and, so and because). However, they are repetitive and a number of pauses are also evident. Manages to discuss each topic with an adequate range of language which allows some precise meaning to be conveyed ('from time to time' ,'negative impact', 'I live faraway').
Grammatical range and accuracy Pronunciation
A good mix of simple and more complex structures ('I'm very fond of taking', 'if..') are employed to good affect but with errors ('If I could have not finished', 'if I had to choose I will', 'no one is answering anymore we all connected'). There is a range of pausing, stress, intonation and chunking but it is not sustained and some portions become fast and hard to comprehend. Accent has very little influence on pronunciation in general though.

​Jenny and Nigel are much more than online tutors, they are real mentors and coaches; approachable and always there when one needs help. I consider myself extremely lucky for discovering iPass website just in time for my IELTS preparation. 

Not being aware of the complexity of the test, I booked a slot for the following month, which left very little time for quality preparation. But then I enrolled on the IELTS 7 course which was a solution to my problem, providing me with all the necessary studying material. 

Even though the website and the course itself were impeccably organized, Jenny’s and Nigel’s help was the key. Besides providing professional guidance, these incredible guys gave me strong emotional support and helped me stay confident when I was about to start panicking. 

Through Skype sessions, video messages and corrections of the written work and by promptly responding to my emails, they proved to be dedicated, responsible and reliable teachers and persons. 

Finally, I got a score of 7.5 which was more than enough for my Canadian Residence Program Application and I am thankful from the bottom of my heart to both of them for making it possible. Keep up the good work!
