Pauline Cullen

Inspiring and Best-selling IELTS Author

I was a language teacher for 12 years before becoming a professional test writer in 1995. I have over 25 years’ experience of writing test materials for high-stakes language tests and have written 6 IELTS preparation books, including The Official Cambridge Guide to IELTS, and two vocabulary teaching apps. Since 2012 I have been active on social media answering questions, giving feedback, and writing posts about the most common IELTS problems and helped many to finally reach their IELTS goal.

My free book, The Key to IELTS Success, is based on everything I have learned about IELTS and language teaching. It is the first in a series of books that will help you put into practice the language, skills, and advice in all of my books and apps. Welcome to the page, please get in touch if you have any questions.
