I’m quite hesitant to email you: is this the right time to purchase the writing module?

Hi Kim,
I know you’re in a mournful situation now. I’m quite hesitant to email you because I don’t want to sound insensitive.

However, I summoned my courage and decided to send you this inquiry:

is this the right time to purchase the writing module? How does it work?

I desperately need some review materials for listening, writing and speaking. So please help me.


Fear of Failing  ExamsDear N,

Thank you for your kindness and consideration. I appreciate your sensitivity and your courage to take care of yourself and your needs. And for helping me to see that I was not clear about my limitations at this time.

The work that I do, what makes CELBANPrep different, is that I put my heart and soul into all that I do. Right now my heart is broken, and my mind is coping with the loss. This means that I am not able to do activities that require deep human connections like answering emails, and hosting Speaking Conference Calls and other live webinars. As long as people are patient and compassionate with me when it comes to emails and webinars (CELBANPrep Speaking ~ individually or in a bundle) all is well.

But I do have wonderful staff! I have amazing Writing Coaches that have worked with me for many years, and are exemplary in the work they do when working with people on CELBANPrep Writing Level One. So while I am reducing my workload, they continue to work with those people who continue to seek support with their writing skills.

Because NOW is the time to prepare for writing! It can take between 3 to 6 months for IENs to prepare for CELBAN Writing. (And doing so will also help anyone taking the IELTS as well.)

Where I was unable to put on any sales in November, as I was focused on planning the memorial and coping with the news, in considering your request I modified the CELBANPrep sales for December; there will be one each week until Christmas. (None of the sales include CELBANPrep Speaking at this time.)

I will resume my work with tutoring for Writing Level Two, and CELBANPrep Speaking (individually and in bundles) in the new year. At that time I will create a sale for CELBANPrep Speaking for anyone who subscribes to either of the writing bundles that will be on sale during December. C0UP0NSm

Please note, that there will be limited seats for anyone accessing the Writing sales in December: only 5 seats are available for each one. Access to the CELBANPrep Reading and Listening Study Bundle Sale is unlimited.

N, I just want you to know that I admire your courage to write me and to ask me, despite my situation. It is this kind of thoughtful mindfulness that I see in those IENs that become LPNs and RNs. You have characteristics that will allow you to obtain your dreams of life in Canada; not because you are aggressively ambitions, but because your ambition is tempered with compassion.

Thank you for providing the inspiration to remind me that even though my daughter is no longer with me, I still have a value and worth in the world.
