☼ i was so frustrated with myself after i received my evaluation report from celas.

Hi kim! i am pleased to hear how you value us your students.*:) happy I have been learning a lot from the lessons 1-5 which i did not used last celban exam.Unfortunately, i was so frustrated with myself after i received my evaluation report from celas. It was hard for me to accept because i did got high marks with the other three areas tested, except for my writing which is only 6. It was a friend that i met in the bus told me about your site, to be honest as a new resident here in canada i felt helpless. I dont have any background and idea about celban , and also i have been discouraged with ielts after many attempts. I am just so glad and inspired from the stories of your students on how you touched their lives.  Im excited for the up coming lessons that i will be learning from you and at the same time feeling nervous for the exam this october. Hoping that  this time il be much ready to face the battle. *:) happy  hoping for your  guidance and help kim for me to achieve my goal.*:) happy G.

MP900444313Dear G,

I am so glad that you were on the bus that day! I am so glad you have good friends to direct you!
So many people become so deeply discouraged from a score that is not accepted by the  provincial college of nurses, for you that would be CARNA: such deep heartache, so much disappointment, so many feelings of defeat. But you forgot to celebrate the amazing thing:  you passed on THREE skills! You got the coveted 10 in CELBAN listening!  If you can do that, you can do anything! We simply need to get you to the point where you have turned all of your weaknesses with your writing/grammar/punctuation into strengths! Having a writing coach for your writing tutoring will make all of the difference!
In reading your sentence, “I am just so glad and inspired from the stories of your students on how you touched their lives.” I have to tell you, the feeling is mutual! It is in watching people grow, seeing self mastery when it comes to grammar and punctuation, seeing weaknesses turn to strengths and strengths turn into confidence that I am inspired. And reading your e-mail, that these stories have motivated you and encouraged you to continue on in your dream of being a nurse in Canada, well that makes my heart sing!
This time when you enter the testing center you will not be going to battle! This time you will be going in with grace, poise and confidence. And with that grace, poise and confidence you will be able to perform to the best of your abilities. Fear and nervousness will have no place in your heart or your mind for it will be filled with light and knowledge!
That is our goal!
