Course Description

Do you want an overall score of 100+ on the TOEFL iBT? Are you ready to successfully prepare for the Revised TOEFL iBT Exam?

We have the TOEFL iBT course for you!

This is a COMPLETE Course with 2,000 5-Star (*****) Reviews and 2021 course updates!. We do not teach a surface-level course that tells you the basics of the exam. To truly break down and simplify the questions for you so that the test becomes easy requires the depth of explanation we give. I teach you as if you were taking a full in-person course that would require extensive training. Based on our style, our students often increase their scores by 10 – 20 points. We do more than tell you what to do; we SHOW you how to do it. If that is what you have been looking for, this course is the right one for you.

I have been a dedicated TOEFL iBT Instructor for more than 15 years. Learning the TOEFL iBT is a challenge because it is not simply about knowing English but actually requires test strategy and tactics that have proven results. In addition, the TOEFL iBT is an online exam, so your taking this course will allow you to study in the format that is best for the exam.

Note: Speaking Test Possibility (Limited Space – Conditions Apply): (1) 20 Spaces available each month, and (2) Student must have proof of completing the entire course to be eligible. The speaking test space is limited, so this is not a guaranteed benefit.

NEW UPDATE: Every section of our course has been updated. We have revised our course to reflect the latest question formats and strategies necessary to succeed at those questions.

What You Get From This Course

  • Over 150 Lectures (Over 60 Hours Video Teaching)
  • Strategies and Tactics for Each Section
  • Instructor-Led Examples of Mastering Each Section

Course Benefits

Accelerated Course Syllabus

This accelerated course is for those students who are already familiar with the TOEFL iBT and do not need the extra lecture that show application of strategy. Some students desire a more streamlined course and this arrangement is for those students. Of course our recommendation is to do the complete course from start to finish.  We tend to give a lot of examples of the explanation of strategy and for some students this is more than they need. As a result, we have created an accelerated syllabus.

TOEFL Reading: Trap Answers Review

In this lecture, we breakdown the different Trap answers that you need to watch out for. In the specific strategy lectures for each question, we point out for you when these traps make an appearance.

5
Detail Question Strategy Introduction

We have now updated our strategy for the Detail Question, so that it reflects some of the news ways the TOEFL test designers are trying to word and challenge you. Please watch these videos and learn exactly how to do this question type.

6
Detail Question Strategy Application

NOTE:

For the first question that I analyze in this strategy application, a student could have read that next sentence because of the word "But." A sentence that starts with the word "But" is connected to the previous sentence. However, the keyword sentence had ALL of the keyword language and most importantly, it has the language "quickest where" that directly connects to the answer. A person would be perfectly fine in reading that next sentence. I probably should have explained in the lecture that although it would be appropriate to read it, it actually is not helpful because we have the language that points directly to the answer. I actually did this mentally, and forgot to take it from my head to the screen. One last point: when the next sentence starts with the word "But" yes it is connected; however, the word "But" indicates conflict with the keyword sentence and will likely not provide helpful information. This is why I don't really consider it on the same level of "this that these those" for pointing to the answer in the following sentence.


We have now updated our strategy for the Detail Question, so that it reflects some of the news ways the TOEFL test designers are trying to word and challenge you. Please watch these videos and learn exactly how to do this question type.

If you want to simulate test pressure, put a timer in effect. Very often students question why they perform well in practice and badly on the exam. The reason why is because they do not simulate test pressure.
