Our success stories


Here's what our past test candidates say:

Hot off the Press ...  Gloria, a dentist, sat the OET (Jan.2020) - first time sitting this test -  and achieved an "A" in Listening  (450)  and  "B" scores in  Reading (400),  Writing (390) and Speaking (430). Her comments to me were:   "Thank you so much for your guidance"   and  " for all the preparation and reassurance you’ve given while coaching me in this first attempt.  "   Congratulations Gloria. 

A success story worth mentioning:  Dietitian  gets top IELTS scores but can't get a pass in OET writing. At the December 2019 test she passed everything (including writing) :  "Marg, I passed OET writing - B score - Thanks for your help!! "  Moments like these make my job worthwhile ... Marg. 

I DID IT.   Hi Marg, 

I  am very proud to let you know that I don't need to take English tests henceforth.    Yesterday I took my second attempt at PTE and passed it with the wanted score.  As you remember, last time I received 63 in the speaking part, but yesterday it was 90! Can you imagine my feelings?  I am absolutely happy to overcome this former obstacle.    I would like to thank you again for teaching and guiding me.

Hope you are doing well. All the best.    Marat   (4 Oct 2019)

Hello Marg,

Your tips are fabulous. They helped me to pass the speaking test last August.

I still remember your priceless advice. Thanks again  Hahn   (4 Oct 2019)

Hi Margaret ! I passed the OET! Thank you so much for all your help!    I’m sure it made a difference for me to pass the exam .  I’m really grateful for all  your help .   I told my friend to try OET instead of IELTS and to have classes with you.  Cheers,  Flavia     (21 Sept 2019)

Hiba just emailed to say she passed writing this time.  All clear to get registered with AHPRA.  (Sept 19)

STOP PRESS ... Email rec'd from Dr  Z -  gynaecologist:  I'm pleased to inform you that I've passed PTE with a score of 72. I followed your strategy and your advice. I will recommend you to my doctor friends to do PTE instead of OET. Thanks Marg for your continuous encouragement, advice and cooperation.  11th June 2019

Hi there Shahad ... this is great news ... IELTS Academic 7.5  is a great result.

Well done - you worked hard - and you deserve this.   Can you now enrol in your post-grad course?  cheers Marg

Email received 9 Feb 2018:
Dear Marg,

Greetings from Dar es Salaam. My husband and I have been in Tanzania for a brief visit catching up with old friends and doing a bit more medical teaching in a volunteer capacity in Moshi and Mwanza. We have spent 41/2 years volunteering in Mwanza and left 12 months ago. We leave for Australia via S Africa today.

I just wanted to thank you so very much for  tutoring K...........   . He has now passed and his writing grade went from a C to an A.

This will give him an opportunity to get his Australian qualification and have some time in Australia with his young family, however,they are hoping long term to resume work in Africa where their hearts really lie.

Thank you again for your excellent help and caring approach.

With best wishes,   Susan

Dear Marg     Happy new year!

I ve got 4 B's in OET.

I received results on 22nd of Dec. Apologies for taking time to inform you.

This was my first attempt and I only participated in your Workshops. Thank you very much for your guidances. All 4 workshops were full of information on the test and teaching was very well focused. All these helped me to pass this barrier.

Kind regards  [Received 2 Jan 2018]


Dear Jan,    Thank you again for your tasks and advice. I got 4 Bs in OET this month. I am now able to register as a physiotherapist. I will introduce you to my friends in need.    Best wishes,     David


Hello Margaret, I’m dropping you a message – I’ve passed the OET!  Thank you so much for your help.  You helped me a lot to build up confidence.  Yuki.  Dec 2, 2017

Hi Marg, I got 4Bs .Thank you so much for your help.It would be impossible with out your program. I really appreciate your help and guidance .Thank you again and again.  regards, Nadee   Nov 28, 2017

Dr Ekram rang to say - after attending the 4-day Workshop last month - he has now passed the OET - at last!  One very happy man!   We wish him all the best as he embarks on furthering his medical career in Australia.  26 Sept 2017

SMS received 25 Sept 2017.  Hi Marg, this is Chloe who was in your 4-day intensive OET workshop last month.  I passed!  I just wanted to say thank you for your help during the workshop.  I didn't feel really well after the test so I thought I wouldn't pass the test but  tada!!  I passed!     As you told us during the workshop, the reading part was easy but the writing part was quite tricky.  Thanks to the tutor in the speaking workshop [I am not sure about his name name but he said he used to be a Doctor doing IVF)  because the writing part was about a woman who had seen a gynaecologist and had had a few cycles of IVF.  If I hadn't asked him what IVF was, I wouldn't be able to pass the writing subtest!  Anyway, many thanks to you for all the help during the workshop. The workshops helped me so much and you are a great teacher! Wish you all the best.  Chloe.  
Editor's note:  This was Chloe's first OET test - she scored A for Speaking; B - Writing; B - Reading;  B - Listening.  

 Dear Marianne,
I have got the results just now, and fortunately I have achieved a B in speaking. Thanks for your help. I am so happy that I could pass another step and without your help it was impossible.  [🌹] [🌹] [🌹]    Maryam    [1 Aug 2017]
