Hello and welcome. I’m Peter Wright, the founder of TOTAL-IELTS.

I’m a former IELTS speaking and writing examiner with the British Council and IDP and have worked as the IDP Resident IELTS Expert in the Philippines. For many years now, I’ve specialized in IELTS teacher and student training.  

I’m a DELTA qualified English teacher and I’ve been involved in TEFL for over 30 years. I’ve worked in quite a few countries with organizations such as International House, IDP Education & British Council.

I set up this website for IELTS candidates who need to achieve a target score in order to pursue their life goals. The samples, tips and strategies were developed and written by the TOTAL-IELTS team. For practice materials and additional information, I’ve included links to the IELTS test partners’ websites.
The Total-IELTS team hopes that you find this website useful and wishes all IELTS candidates the best of luck.


"I find it hard to believe that Total-IELTS is sharing such high-quality content for free. Their well-organized vocabulary bank and structured books for writing tasks 1 & 2 made my preparation significantly easier. Their selected idioms proved very beneficial, and their content played a substantial role in my Writing (7) and Speaking (7.5) scores. I'm eager to promote them everywhere."
