In addition, go to my You Tube Playlist of TOEFL Study Guides to find study guides that I have recommended for students over the last few years.

You can begin your lessons today, tomorrow, or whenever the time is right for you. If you are not sure which study guide will work best for you, leave a comment on this page with the following information:

  • What is your current TOEFL Score/English proficiency, including a breakdown of subtotals in reading, listening, writing, and speaking?

  • How much time are you willing to study daily to improve your academic English proficiency?
  • How many weeks or months can you devote to preparing for the TOEFL iBT exam?

Based on the information you provide, I will recommend a study guide for my Online TOEFL Course to help you reach your TOEFL goals.

    Hi Michael,

    My toefl score was 66 (Speaking 18, Reading 17, Writing 17, Listening 14). My minimal goal is 22 in speaking and 21 in the other, it will better if I get 94.

    What plan of study do you recommend me? I have about 2-3 hours per day for study.

    Regards.

    Hi Michael,

    I am going to take IBT TOEFL in 24 March. I need to get at least 95 in order to pass the requirement for the scholarship. I never take the IBT TOEFL before, but last year i took the paper based TOEFL and scored 549. I have difficulties in writing correctly and speaking fluently. I think, I need a course that can help me generating ideas on writing and speaking topics. Hope your courses can help.

    Thanks,
    Rika

        Hi Michael,

        Thank you for your response, but the problem is I do not have that much time. Can I finished this 90-days course by doing 2 days lesson each day?? So I will finished it in 45 days.
        Approximately how much time needed for one day lesson as stated in your outline?

        Thanks
        Rika

I took my TOEFL test on 26th Aug 2012 with 65 in total(R-18, L-13, S-20, W-14) and going to take test again on 02nd Mar 2013. I have done with many listening and writing topics from official site of TOEFL-ibt even I’am little scared to take the test how can I over come this, is i require more practise. I would like to know that this site could offer 1 month online classes to get out of my fear and good score above 90.

    Dear Michael,
    My name is Jaksanapong from Thailand. My previous score is 69, Reading 17, listening 16, speaking 18,
    writing 18. I have tested TOEFL for 3 times that I got 51, 61, and end up with 69. I need higher scores in every parts.
    For reading part, Sometime when I read a passage, I spend too much time for repeating reading and can’t understand it in one-time reading.
    For listening, I think this part is my major problem. Sometime, I can’t focus on major point of materials that It makes me choose wrong answer.
    For speaking, I know a answer in my mind but It isn’t performed well when I speak out,. I also have problem with integrated parts that require listening skill.
    For writing, Integrated part requiring listening skill still doubt to me. My writing skill is also limited by using good grammar and sentence structure.

    Well, My Goal is 90 and I have 1 month preparing for next test. I’m interested to begin your courses for improving my TOEFL scores. I would like to know which courses will work best for me.

    Thanks,
    Jaksanapong

    Hi Michael,

    I am planning to take online TOEFL course. My previous score is 88. Reading-21, listening-20, speaking-26,
    writing -21. Though I gave it another time to improve I ended up getting the same range of score.I want to improve in reading and listening as well as in writing too. I was able to understand what they speak during listening but some how I end up answering wrong to the questions. My aim is to score 100 and up. Hope this course would help me getting good score.

    Thanks,
    Keerthi
