    Hi Michael,

    I want some information about your S.T.E.A.L.T.H. 7-step guide. I appeared for the first time in the test on 11th Feb and scored 108 (R30, L29, S20, W29). I am a 29-year old MBA applicant from Bangalore, India, and this score is sub-par compared to the average scores of my peers at top US business schools that I am targeting. My main weakness has come out to be speaking section and hence I want to practice comprehensively for next 2 months. I am planning to retake the test in late April or early May.

    My target score is 115+ with at least 26 in Speaking (and other sections).

    Please inform me details about how this course can help me achieve the target. I would also like to know the average no. of hours to put in per day and whether the course can be tailor-made to suit my requirements e.g. special focus on speaking, etc.

    Hi Michael,

    My sister is studying for TOEFL in Vietnam. I am thinking of registering this course for her. Her current score is 70 points and wants to get at least 100 points.

    Just a few queries:
    – Is it possible to improve to 100 points in 3 months? Since the last exam this year is 26th Aug (if i don’t remember wrongly).
    – How long does it take you to provide feedback on the writing, speaking exercises?
    – Can I register on behalf of my sister and then give her the account to access the course?

    Thank you,
    Tran

    Hii, I will be applying to US universities for PHD for admission in fall 2013. I need to get at least 100 in order to be eligible for teaching apprenticeship. I am trying to memorize Barron master word list( which contains 3500 words). I do read lots of novels (paulo Coehlo, Sidney Sheldon etc.), English newspapers. But, as somebody mentioned, it is difficult to speak like a native speaker. Although I don’t face any difficulties in speaking English, I am stumped by the 45 secs speaking section.

    Can you suggest some methods to get a good score in speaking section? English is the language of instruction in my university. But, because of my Hindi medium schooling, my command of English is not as good as what is expected of an average student of my univ. As I am an engineering major, I do stammer a lot when it comes to delivering a discourse on general topics ( that are not related to science or engineering). Do you have a list of probable topics for TOEFL speaking section?

  8. Hello Mr. Michael,

    I’m going to take the TOEFL iBT this July 28th, which is 2 months later. My old TOEFL score is really low (only 55/120). My intended university requires 80, but I really want to raise my score up to 90 or around 100. I bought a book online and daily practice by myself at home, but it doesn’t seem really work since all of my skills (reading, listening, writing and speaking) are still way too weak. I really need your help. Do you have any advises or solutions for this? And how does the course work? Am I going to practice directly with you through the internet and how is the payment method (I do have a Paypal account)? I only have 2 months to go, I don’t know if I could reschedule my test day or not, but I have to done everything within this summer to apply to the university as soon as possible.

  9. Olivia,

    My name is Jackson, I am a Brazilian who lives living in Germany where I am taking my PhD.
    I am really interested in your preparation course to Toefl.
    I took the TOEFl test once and reached only 72 points. I need to score at least 80 points in TOEFL to my PhD program.
    But at first, I would like to know if I will have personal feedback on my writing and speaking, in others words if you will correct my mistakes.

    Thank you
    With my best wishes.
    Jackson

  16. I gotta say I love your teaching materials a lot Michael! I only started for a week (on reading and speaking). I’ve done up to chapter 6 now, still keep moving on everyday. Honestly, I can feel my skills are improving amazingly by knowing more and more big words. I’m gonna tell my friends to take your online course. And when I reach 100 on Toefl iBT, I’m gonna tell you first! Thanks again 🙂

  17. Hi Mike,

    I like your genuine behaviours. I have taken TOEFL IBT score. It is 70. I got it February 2012. I must reach at least 80 but i wanna get over 90. My TOEFL date is 23 June. I know it is very little time for this degree. I am a hardworker. I need little tricks. I don’t need vocab things. I have to improove my statement skills and jog my memory for reading parts. Could you help me to do this score? Please be realist 🙂

    I want to take the exam at the end of November 2012. I know I will have to try my best, but just don’t know is your class right for me. Thanks for your help.

  23. Hey,

    I have PBT TOEFL test on 6th of June and I want to get 530. Is there any tricks or what should I do to get +530?
    Please answer me ASAP!

    1. Yes, there a few things that you can do to maximize your PBT listening, grammar, and reading scores. But I can not cover all those things in this message. In fact, it would take me a couple of hours to explain to you what those tips are. Anyway, good luck to you and consider using my TOEFL course if you find out that your score is not as high as you would like it to be.

      By the way, my TOEFL course helps all students improve their academic English proficiency no matter which version of the TOEFL they take. My TOEFL course will even help students who take the ELTS exam.

  24. Hello,
    I just submitted to your course and I got charged 2 times and I can not get to your lessons.
    Please help me with that.

    1. Sara,

      I refunded one of your payments, and cancelled one of your subscriptions so that you will not be billed twice should you decide to use my course for more than one month.

      Also, I sent you your username and password so you can get access to all the lessons in my TOEFL course.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  25. Hi Mick thanks for the response, I need 80 point to admitted in the University, I already purchased your course, and I don´t know how to get my password and user. In other hand of what you said in your response, I think that I can understand Reading Section, but have a little problems in the way of organized my Speaking and Writing. My grammar it is not bad but I have to remember it basically. I have full-time for my TOEFL prep, so I hope to achieve the minimum score on this exam.

    1. I have processed four payments so far today but none with your name. When did you sign up?

  26. The email with I paid is capechic@……. 😉

    1. Sorry about not to tell you the email, i didnt realize that it doesnt say my name.

    Hi! The last time I took the Speaking Test on the iBT, I ran into some trouble because I sort of stuttered initially, and the words just don’t come out right (not to mention that the pronunciation was also quite terrible). Any tip on how to reduce this sort of nervousness?

  28. Hi Mr. Buckoff I’m Zulayla from Uzbekistan, I have passed TOEFL 3 times and my scores are still love, my last one was 64 but as I witness and realize my reading section is always the same “I’m taking lower than 15 on the reading section for 3 times” Could you please, share some of your advice with me? What would you do if you were in my shoes?!! Thank you in advance
    Zulayla with great regards

    1. Zulayla,

      Here are my comments to you: http://youtu.be/6iydtYRjio4

      Thanks,

      Michael

      1. Hi Mr.Buckoff it’s Zu from Uzbekistan replying to your email answer. I liked the ideas you have shared with me, and blatantly they could work out. But let me tell you my current situation.
        I read a lot of books, I spend about 1/2 or sometimes 3 hours to read some of my books, it’s because I like reading a lot. However the problem is not about reading or vocabulary, I’m failing mostly to choose the right answers by thinking logically. I know exactly where am I failing and I know what question screwing me up but I don’t know how to increase this part.
        By the way, I have passed my third TOEFL about 2 weeks ago and already got the answer and it was 64 as I mentioned. I’m doing fine on my speaking, my last one was 23. Listening 16, Writing 15, and Reading is 10. Seems I should improve both other sections. Unfortunately, I registered for my fourth right after getting my result and the time limited for 1 and half month (I’m in panic). According to your answer, I should practice at least 3/4 months. Now I don’t have enough time to make my preparation in succession. And by the way what do you think, do I have to prepare all sections at the same day or each sections in different days?!! I’ll be one of your students and use your resources until the next TOEFL.
        Thank you for your answers.

        Zulayla

        1. One additional question, I couldn’t fine the name of my country in your subscribing wall to make a payment. My country Uzbekistan is not listed in your account, how can make a payment?

          Thanks,

          Michael

          1. Oh Mr. Buckoff, I’m surprised. Is that a permission to access your courses until August? ( it has written like this over there) or is it just to see how your courses organized? I couldn’t make any payment for your courses, frankly I could not understand it precisely. Please let me know about it !!

    Hi there!

    I’m from Ukraine, Lviv .
    I’m just find out that you can help me with the test.(http://onlinetoeflcourse.com/)
    I’d like to subscribe your service, but I have a few questions.
    1.I have a four weeks to prepare to the TOEFL. I can study for 10-12 hours a day. Right now my TOEFL score is 60. Can I achieve a 90-100 in this period of time (I’m teaching pretty fast) ?
    2.What’s the difference between 60 and 90-100 ?
    Waiting for your video response.
    Thank you , for improving this world!

  30. Hi, I would like to know do you assess writing task essays for toefl ibt?

    1. Kas,

      Here is my answer to your question: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iImHxwDf5BQ

      Thanks,

      Michael

      1. Hi,

        Thank you for your quick response. My question is if I get enroll in your toefl session for a month will I be allowed to take the 10 integrated and 10 independent writing tests? Also I appreciate if you kindly let me know will you give feedback on all these 20 tests and how long will the audio feed back take? My tests is in 3 weeks.

        Thank you.

        1. Kas,

          To keep from getting overwhelmed, I have a general rule which is as follows:

          You can take one speaking and writing practice test per day, each time getting audio and written feedback from me so you can make a few adjustments, review some recommended lessons, and then complete another practice test. On the other hand, since my vocabulary, listening, grammar, and reading quizzes and practice tests are computer scored, there is NO limit on how many you can take in a day since I do not have to grade them.

          So, you will be allowed to complete all 20 writing practice tests, and I will give you written feedback on all of them. However, it usually takes 1-2 days for me to evaluate your writing and speaking practice tests that you submit. For these reasons, it will be difficult for you to compete all 20 writing practice tests during this time frame.

          Thanks,

          Michael

  31. How many month i need? if i want to finish all your online course?

  32. Hello Mr. Michael,

    My name is Sam and I am 15 years of age. I toke my TOEFL test during my IGCSE exam ,therefore I was not able to revise properly for it. I received my first score and I’m completely unsatisfied with it(66). I toke 17 in reading, 18 in listening, 13 in speaking and 18 in writing.This score demotivated me and was a complete mental boost before my exams. I’m extremely disappointed with the score and I would be glad if I take a score of 90 or above in my next test. I honestly was very nervous during the test especially during the speaking task. I have seen most of your videos and comments and I’m interested in joining your TOEFL course. When do you suggest I do my next TOEFL test? In addition, in what do I practice in during the summer vacation?

    Thank you.

    1. Sam,

      I just sent you a audio file to your e-mail answering your questions.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  33. Ira,

    Are you one of my current students in my Online TOEFL Course? I do give written feedback to my students when they complete their integrated and independent writing practice tests. The written feedback includes a score and recommendations for specific lessons they should study to improve.

    However, I will NOT correct all the errors in their essays for only $35 a month. I do offer an additional error correction service for their 10 independent and 10 integrated writing practice tests. The cost to “edit” all 20 of their practice tests is a one time payment of $500. During this editing process, I will 1) show students what errors they are making, 2) how they can correct those errors, and 3) how they can avoid making those errors during the TOEFL iBT writing section. In addition, I give these students feedback on the organization and development of their writing. Within a period of 90 days, these students will be able to score 26+ on the writing section of the TOEFL exam.

    Here is a video of how my editing service works and this is what I will send when you send me your writing samples: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QL1gH-SE9w

    Usually, I can give you feedback within 1-2 days.

    Thanks,

    Michael

    Dear Mr.Buckhoff,

    I would like to know if you give feedback on the writing essays. If I will send you my essays for your feedback what will be your fee. Also how much time the feedback will take itself?

    Thank you,

  39. Hello Michael,
    I have just come across this website which I liked so very much. I would be so pleased if you replied my question (request): I have registered for the TOEFL-IBT for July 2012, actually I will take it at the end of July. I am kind of feeling not very self-confident in writing part. I was wondering whether or not it was possible for you to read my essays and make some comments on them. I am really really curious about my scores in writing, about what score I could get….Thank you very much.
    Kind regards,

    Meral

    1. Meral,

      That is exactly what I do for all of my Online TOEFL students: I read/listen and comment on all their writing and speaking practice tests. If you are one of my students, I will do exactly the same thing for you.

      Cheers!

      Michael

  40. Hello, my name is Emiliya I would love to ask u some advises about how to get good scores . I’m about to take Toefl after 2 month and have to get 80 scores ! I’m actually staying in US could have any meeting with native speakers but I know for me it doesn’t work ! I already took a Toefl 1 month ago , and my scores were really bad! I have a big problem with reading part, please help me give me some important advises how to memorize new words and have an idea while I’m reading ! I can not to catch the main idea !!! thanks in advance 🙂

    1. Emiliya,

      Here are my comments to you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2TSd7N2VyM

      Thanks,

      Michael

  41. Dear Michael,
    I would really appreciate if you could TEACH me how I could actually pass TOEFL exam with a score of 84 minimum. I’m a former nurse who graduated from a foreign nursing school in Baku, Azerbaijan. I’ve been leaving in US since 1998. I’m currently about to graduate from a Pre-med program in Moorhead, Minnesota. I have earned all A’s in all my English college courses.
    I recently had my nursing diploma evaluated and I was allowed to take an ENCLEX-RN exam to practice nursing in US. Unfortunately, I have to prove that I speak English and have to get minimum of 84 on TOEFL iBT exam.
    So, my question is: how in the world I could possible pass this exam when examination room does not fit for such “EVENT”? I took TOEFL exam twice and both times a failed just by couple of points. The atmosphere during the exam is absolutely unacceptable. I never had to experience such unpleasant moments during my school experience in my local college. Both times when I took this exam I pay $ 170 registration fee and I think I deserve to have at least semi-pleasant and quite atmosphere which is suitable for any exam.
    Not once I have had an exam in my college where students were talking loud to the professors or just simply talking out loud which was causing a huge disturbance and discomfort to others. I simply do not understand if TOEFL is set up in a way to fail people purposely or just nobody really cares how many people’s life are being left behind the doors. It is understandable that money for the exam is taken immediately when one signs up for the exam but where is the proper, suitable exam atmosphere?
    Dear Michael I understand that fixing this problem is not in your power and I’m not asking you to either. I’m just at crises right now and not sure if it is ever going to be possible to pass TOEFL at Prometric exam center. I’m not alone just as many of my friends are straggling with the same problem.

    Sincerely
    Dina

      Thanks,

      Michael

      1. Dear Michael,
        Thank you so very much for taking time and answering my question.
        You really made my day today!!!
        I was thinking about the ear plugs several times but wasn’t too sure if they would allow me to have anything in my ears during the exam. But I’m still going to try!!! I hope they won’t make me leave all my belongings in the car like they did last two times.

        Thank you very much again!!!
        Sincerely
        Dina

    2. Dear Dina,

      I am totally agree with you.
      I have had a similar situation with an IELTS in Toronto, Canada.
      I have had a chance to see a total disaster during the exams from their examinants two times.
      I have tried to pass the IELTS twice, but my effort and the scores were the same.
      My aim was to get on IELTS overall score 7, but I got 5.5.
      Everything depends on an examinee, but significant role play there the examinants.
      Many an educational institutions offer English courses(TOEFL,IELTS,ect.)here.
      From my experience 95% of them have method to “brainwash” your English knowledge.
      This is a total money making business.
      Unfortunately the sistem in North America is set up to make you fail, or put you down right away.
      They don’t need smart educated people here to make the world better, peaceful and nice.
      They just want to keep all immigrants below a middle class and do not even give them a chance to be satisfy who they are.
      Thank you for reading my comment here.

      Sincerely,
      Mr.D, Slavic Linguistics.

      1. Dear Mr.D,
        I hope you didn’t give up on getting your desired score!!! I totally understand how frustrating it could get when you study for a test and the results are still lower than you are aiming for. I wish you to be a bit more patient and keep trying.
        There is nothing else that will make you happier but the score you need when you finally reach that point!!!
        Just think of mountain climbers when they reach the top of the mountains. Try to picture how they feel and imagine yourself in their position. The flow of an adrenaline through their bodies and the satisfaction of getting to the top!!!
        So, good luck to you and don’t look back at little failures!!!
        My best wishes to you!!!
        Sincerely
        Dina

  42. Hello Michael:
    I have taken the TOEFL several times and I can’t reach the required score for the reading and listening sections. I got 20 for reading and I need 23 and 21/22 for listening and I need 25. Since the TOEFL does not show you your mistakes and just give you the scores I find myself having trouble finding the mistakes that don”t let me reach the desired score. And one more question. When you say read for 45 mins every day you mean without taking a break?
    Thank you very much.
    Daniela.

    1. Daniela,

      Here are my comments to you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZfX-xyJvHD4

      Thanks,

      Michael

      1. thank you for responding…I am having trouble copying and pasting the scores…any advise?
        What I meant to say was that because I don”t have the option to see the test anymore I can’t tell where I make the mistakes…I already follow most of your steps…:-)
        Thank you again.

        Daniela

        1. Daniela,

          I just got your scores by e-mail. I will do an analysis of them when I get some free time.

          Thanks,

          Michael

  43. Hi Michael,
    My name is Hoang and I am Vietnamese. Last week i took a TOEFL test and i only got 89 on that.
    (R23 L22 S17 W27 Total:89)
    I do not think that speaking section is my problem since I have talked with native speakers many times and I think that I can fully express my ideas when I talk to them. However, the report says that I have difficulty in grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary. I believe that this happens because I do not usually use the mic to speak. Last time I recorded my speaking task and it was terrible. Do you think that I can improve my score in 1 month????
    Btw, I also appreciate if you can show me how to improve my reading and listening skills, too.

    1. Duy,

      Here are my comments to you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hkcgxNxobE

      Thanks,

      Michael

      1. thanks u so much for answering my question. This is a great video and I will probably join your course to improve my speaking skills. I am going to sign up for the TOEFL test next week and I will choose to take the test in the right time in order to take your course.

  44. Hello,

    I would like to thank you very much for your precious sit, and I would like to be one of your students, but unfortunately my country is not listed in the pay pal form.
    I am Egyptian, a candidate PhD student,and hopefully to join the TEOFL course immediately.
    Thank you in advance.

    1. Hanan,

      Egypt for whatever reason does not use Pay Pal. What about Western Union? Does your country use that? Some students have paid me using Western Union.

      Thanks,

      Hanan

      1. Yes, it will be OK with me to use western Union in personal, cause of the online service does not work in my country, so, I have to go to the nearest branch and full the form with details about the receiver, could you send me the receiver details?.
        Thank you

        1. Hanan,

          If you cannot use Pay Pal, you can pay me by Western Union. If you use Western Union, the minimum requirement is that you pay up front for 3 months of my TOEFL service. The cost is $105.00. Here is my contact information in case you should decide to wire me $105.00: Michael Buckhoff / 13509 Buena Vista Drive / Hesperia, California 92344. Once you wire your payment, E-mail me the MTCN or pin number that Western Union gave you so that I can receive your payment. After I receive your payment, I will create your username, password, and enrollment key to The 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT. CLICK HERE to read in more depth about your payment options.

          Thanks!

          Michael

          1. Hi, Michael

            Thanks for sending this information, and I wonder if it is possible to pay for the service for one month only and I will transfer the amount by Western Union.
            Thanks

  45. dear sir
    I want to score 80 and my score now 59 how can i improve

    1. Thank you, this my question too

    2. Mimi and Hanan,

      Here are many answers to your questions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYpXvzcOCKk

      Thanks,

      Michael

  46. Hello,

    I got 69 from TOEFL 3 months ago and I need 80 until 6th of July. I had to register because I have conditional acceptance from really important university for me. Actually, I know what is my problem but I’m doing it continuously. For listening section, I always give wrong answers on “Interference, Speaker’s implication and Rhetorical Function” questions. For writing section,I always get confuse about major and minor ideas in a paragraph like writing a major then continue to it with unrelated minor. I mean, my connections are weak in a paragraph. And for speaking, I got 18. How can I improve my speaking score?

    I will be glad if you help me about these problems.

    Thank you very much.

    1. Ozlem,

      Here are my comments to you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4IWMCf8GrU

      Thanks for contacting me!

      Michael

      1. Thank you for answering my question. I have really short time before taking the TOEFL and I’m not sure, you have 2 weeks program or you don’t have? Could you inform me about it?

        1. Ozlem,

          There is not a two week program anywhere on this earth that will move your TOEFL score from 69 to 80. It will be a 2-3 month battle that you and I must fight. Eventually, you will solve your language problems and increase your score, and, when you do, you will be proud of all the hard work you had to put in to realize your TOEFL goals.

          I look forward to working with you!

          Michael

  47. I know but I already studied for TOEFL last 3 months. 69 was 3 months ago. The problem is that I studied on my own and now I need some tips and feedback on my speaking and writing. That is why I’m going to apply your online course for 11 days. I hope it will be good for me.

    1. Ozlem,

      OK. I got it. I can especially help you with your speaking and writing. Join now and start completing my speaking and writing practice tests so I can give you feedback. My rule is you can post ONE speaking and writing practice test per day while you are subscribed to my service.

      Michael

      1. Is there any different payment type? I have to wait with paypal and you know I have no time. I had to change my credit card on paypal that is why I cannot pay for your course now.

          Go to my FAQ’s page at http://onlinetoeflcourse.com/?page_id=43 . I answer your question under the heading “credit card.”

          Thanks,

    Hello Michael!

    I’m Adriana from Colombia. Currently I’mliving and working in Lebanon. I decided to present the TOEFL iBT test so I canbe able to postulate for a Master’s degree in Geneva. The thing is that theyrequire a pretty high score! (100), and although there is some time before theexam date (September 29) I got to confess that thinking that I should obtainthat score puts high pressure on me.

    I have already started watching videos,and as I am in a foreign country, I have the opportunity to practice my Englishsomehow, I’m not that shy speaking but I’m pretty conscious that I make lots ofmistakes and there is still a long way to go in terms of my learning process, I’mespecially worried about my academic vocabulary, and my grammar.

    I don’t want to write too long, I haveappreciated a lot the videos that I’ve watched of your advices and I’m creatinga study plan. I would think to take some lessons with you, that’s why Icontact you so you can give me your advice. Thank you in advance! And greetings fromLebanon! Adriana

    Hi Micheal,

    I just want to thank you for all those words of encouragement and
    support. I passed my 2nd toefl with a total score 102 { R25, L26, S27,
    W24. My first attempt was 87 {R19, L23, S24, W21} and i was very
    discouraged and disappointed but you encouraged me to keep fighting.
    I needed a score of 89 {R21, L18, S26, W24} for my pharmacy
    certification and you really helped me to achieve that.

    Thanks a million and remain blessed.

    Best regards,

On average my online TOEFL students improve their score between 5-10 points for each month that they use my service. Thank you for contacting me, and I would like to invite you to become one of my newest students.

    If you are ready to reach your TOEFL goals by working hard, I am ready to guide you through your journey.

    Thanks,

    Michael

    Hi Michael

    My name is Adriana Rincón and I am a student of Ph.D of science in Costa Rica. I need to improve my toefl scores. I presented toefl IBT on May of 2012 and I drew 60 points. I need to draw near 83 points to have a scholarship that allow to make a pasantia in U.S.A and improve my economical situation.

    I drew the scores as I show: 16 in reading; 13 in listening; 14 in speaking; 17 in writing.

    Please, help me to improve my english. How is your course? How much it cost? Explain me all about your course. I am interested to do it. I appreciate your support.

    with regards

    Adriana

    1. Hi Andrea, i think you have to improve much harder than me, and my advice is to read from toefl books , for example GRE you can download from internet, thank you

      1. Grisknack,

        Hi there! You are the one with whom I crossed paths with at my You Tube channel, right?

        Michael

  67. Elad,

    Yes, it is possible that I can help you increase your score by ten points. However, you need improvement in just 13 days, which makes it difficult.

    My pronunciation and speaking lessons and practice tests will help you to achieve your goal of 26 or higher on the speaking, and my writing lessons will help you to reach 24 points. My best guess is that you will need 1-3 months to reach your goal. I am most worried about your writing score since a score of 21 indicates that you have problems with your sentence structure and word choice. It is not easy to eliminate these kinds of problems in two weeks.

    So what do you think? Heck, your investment is only $35, and I will help you as much as I can if you are willing to work like a maniac to realize your TOEFL goals.

    Sign up and begin my course with a heavy focus on my pronunciation, speaking, and writing lessons. As you complete practice tests, I will let you know if you need to study additional lessons.

    All the best to your high-scoring TOEFL success!

    Michael

          1. Rosalie,

            Based on the information you have given me, I think you will need to create a Pay Pal account BEFORE you will be able to make your payment.

            Michael

    2. Rosalie,

      If you have questions, you can contact me right here. I will help you to resolve your concerns. I am a great problem solver!

  75. Hi Murali DIVI,

    I hope you come back to this page to read this message. After you made your Pay Pal payment to register for my Online TOEFL Course, I created your username and password and e-mailed you all the information to start my course. Unfortunately, your yahoo E-mail was undeliverable. Could you E-mail me another E-mail that I can use so I will be able to contact you?

    Going to bed now, but I will check my E-mail first thing in the morning,

    Michael

    1. Mike, please send the login info to mkdivi@gmail.com.

      Thanks

      1. Murali,

        I sent resent your login information to your E-mail account. Please check your spam folder if you did not get the message. If I remember correctly, you have two e-mails: your personal e-mail and your pay pal e-mail. That you have two different E-mails could be the source of the confusion. Anyway, please come back to this web page after you confirm that you do have access to the lessons in my Online TOEFL Course.

        Thanks,

        Michael

  76. Hello, i need to improve my score in the Toefl test, i scored 70 and need 85 or 90. please how do i start the course, my exam is on the 28th of July. Thanks

    1. Rachael,

      You will need to go to my “Join” page to register for my Online TOEFL course. Here is the link: http://onlinetoeflcourse.com/?page_id=68

      Thanks,

      Michael

  77. Hi Michiel,
    I did contact you before.Actually I am planning to enroll in your course from next week but I have one question for you.I am currently working so approximately how many hours study a day is required to gain score of 90 from 70 including speaking – 26,writing -24,Reading -21,Listening – 18.

    Thanks,
    Tithi

    1. Tithi,

      Of course, I can not say exactly how many hours you should spend each day since each student is different. However, based on your goal of improving your score from 70 to 90, and, since you need to score 26 and 24 on the speaking and writing sections, you will most likely need to use my Online TOEFL Course for 3 months. Ideally, you will be spending 2-3 hours a day at my course for maximum benefits during this time.

      I can get you ready to meet your TOEFL goals, but it will be VERY hard work for the both of us. Are you ready to battle the TOEFL?

      Thanks,

      Michael

  78. Hoang,

    I am very sorry but no scholarships are offered. Priced at only $35 for 170 hours of instruction, my Online TOEFL course offers you the chance to have your pronunciation, speaking, and writing practice tests evaluated by an iBT TOEFL specialist at no additional charge. I have taught many students from Viet Nam before, and I will be happy to help you.

    All the best to your high scoring TOEFL success!

    Michael

    Dear Mr Michael Buckhoff,
    I’m currently a student in Vietnam. I’m going to go for a Toeft IBT test in my country in some months for pursuing my future education. I’m so lucky to be introduced to your website which offers toefl online courses. After exploring the information, I know that everyone has to pay for a course from you. I wonder whether you can offer me a “scholarship” so that I can have a better chance to get access to the course. I know this will be hard for you. I don’t have a bank credit, and I do want to be trained through your website. After thinking about this a great deal, I venture to send this email to you. I hope to hear from you soon.
    Thank you so much and have a nice day.
    Hoang Nhi

  80. Dear Mike,
    Today I registered the system. However, information such as user name and password login to the system can not reach to me. And I tried different things such as used Paypal again. So paid repeated. Therefore I want to learn my user name and password and the cancellation of second payment…
    Thank you
    Regards
    Alpaslan KUMAŞ from Türkiye…

    1. Alpasian,

      I refunded one of your payments and canceled your profile connected to that payment so you will not be double-billed at the end of the 30 day cycle should you decide to use the lessons in my Online TOEFL Course for more than one month.

      Also, I sent you an E-mail containing your username and password so you will have access to the course.

      Thanks,

      Michael

      1. The same as him. I just registered, but when PayPal redirect for your page it redirects for a absent page. Let me know my login and pass ASAP.

        Thanks

        1. R. Silva,

          Sometimes, after making a payment, Pay Pal fails to redirect a customer to the “welcome page.” I do not know why.

          However, I do know that you signed up for my Online TOEFL course, and I just subscribed you so you can have full access to all 330 of my TOEFL lessons.

          Welcome R. Silva! You are my newest student.

          Michael

  81. Joanna Kuźniewska,

    Pay Pal notified me that you have subscribed to the lessons in my Online TOEFL Course. However, my Online TOEFL Course does not like the E-mail address you used at your Pay Pal account. It says it is invalid. Do you have another E-mail address I can use? Please answer quickly so I can give you access to “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT.”

    Thanks,

    Michael

  82. Hi Michael
    I need to take the toefl exam in order to complete my pharmacy license. This is going to be my first time taking the exam, and I hope it will be my last time too. I already sent you a payment via paypal yesterday under the name of Maurice. I would really appreciate it if you can guide me how to get an access to your course.

    1. Rasha,

      You must have joined my Online TOEFL course last night while I was sleeping. When I woke up this morning, I received an e-mail notification from Pay Pal that you had joined “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT.” Therefore, I just created you username and password so that you will have unlimited access to all the lessons in my course. In fact, I just sent you an E-mail containing that information.

      Please let me know if you have any problems logging on to the web site.

      Thank you for becoming one of my students!

      Michael

  83. I need to speak to you.
    I will appreciate if you can send me your phone

    1. Rajiv,

      I prefer not to give out my phone to my Online TOEFL students. Currently, there are 210 TOEFLers enrolled in my Online TOEFL Course. If they all had my phone number, my phone would be ringing off the hook, and I think my wife would kill me.

      E-mail me at mbuckhoff@aol.com, and I will solve whatever problem you may be having.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  84. Hi Michael,

    I have just sent you the payment via paypal, so could you please guide me to access your course ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Murat Gül

    1. Murat,

      Yes, I just got notification from Pay Pal that you paid to get access to all the lessons in my Online TOEFL Course. A few minutes ago, I created your username and password and sent you your E-mail so that you will know how to get access.

      Welcome to “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT”

    1. Mohini,

      Can you e-mail me (mbuckhoff@aol.com) your Pay Pal receipt so I can check my records? Pay Pal did not notify me of anyone with your name who signed up to take the lessons in my Online TOEFL Course. I did have three new sign ups, but no one with your name or e-mail.

      Thanks,

      Michael

    2. Mohini,

      I just resent you your username and password so that you can begin studying the vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, listening, reading, speaking, and writing lessons. Let me know if you have any trouble logging on.

      Thanks,

      Michael

      1. i cant access

        1. Mohini,

          I reset your password and your username so you can begin the lessons in my Online TOEFL Course. I e-mailed you the information about 45 minutes ago. Therefore, you should be able to have access to my lessons.

          Funny thing is that someone on July 13, 2012 with your last name “Ray” signed up, but s/he had a different E-mail address and a different first name. I sent the new sign up all that information. By chance, did you have someone else register you to my Online TOEFL Course? That might explain some of the confusion.

          Thanks,

    this is an Italian student who is studying to pass the toefl ibt. I have already taken the test one year and a half ago and my score is 80: 19 R, 17 L, 22 S, 22 W. My goal is to reach a score of 90-95 so as to apply to an American University. I would love to raise my reading and listening scores. I think of re-taking the test at the beginning of November, what are your suggestions?
    Thanks for your time.
    Sincerely,
    – Andrea

    1. Dear Mr. Buckhoff,
      I am going to register to your class this monday. I would need to improve also my speaking and writing scores.

    It may take me up to 24 hours to issue you your password and username, especially if you sign up when I am sleeping. I check my E-mail two hours every morning taking care of new sign-ups, and recently submitted pronunciation, speaking, and writing practice tests.

    I look forward to having you as a student.

    Hi Mr. Michael:

    My name is Victor and I am peruvian. I am planing to take the ibt TOEFL test on ! August 4th. I got 80 in my first exam because i was not familiar with the toefl and I did not manage my time during the exam. However I need more practice and I want to join your course.

    Will I be able to get the password and username inmediatly after the payment? or I have to wait, if that how much?

    Thanks

    Victor Becerra

  89. Hi Michael,

    My name is Meryem. I took the TOEFL Test 2 weeks ago and got the score 93. Actually, my target score is 100+. I am going to take the TOEFL on the 4th August again. I came across your TOEFL lectures on Youtube and decided to keep studying with your preparation program. I made the payment via Paypal half hour ago. Now I am waiting for getting my username and password to log in. I also need your further instructions how to benefit from your online lectures.
    I also want to give you some further information about what skills I need to improve for the next TOEFL Test. Writing is my strongest skill. I got 27. Unfortunately, speaking is too problematic for me. Reading and Listening skills depend on my effort. The more I study, the better score I could get ( I think ). But what you recommend me to develop my speaking skills.

        Thanks for your quick respond,
        I’ve just one more question. As you advised,I need to study your subjects for two months but I’m working and I can just study almost three hours a day,what do you think? Is this enough?
        Thank you
        Arthur

        1. Arthur,

          Studying three hours a day will help you to complete all sections of my course except the vocabulary section. You may need an extra month for that section of my Online TOEFL Course. However, if you already have a strong base of academic and basic vocabulary, you may not need to spend that much time in the vocabulary section of my course.

          The bottom line is this: You can proceed through the TOEFL lessons in my course as fast or as slow as you like, and, during that time, you will have unlimited access to all lessons and practice tests.

          Michael

  96. Hi Michael! I took the Toefl and my score is 84. In one week I will take it again. I need at least 90. My problem is the reading section. What can I do in one week? Do you have some materials for the reading section??

    to buy those 7 lessons, but it is said that I have to pay 35$ each

    Hi my Michael, how are you ?

    So, i’m emailing you to show you my reality. The fact is that i have a exam on August 25th and i need minimal 80, in the worst hypothesis, 72. I’m not sure if i can do it, but will try.

    That’s will be my first try and i don’t have exactly the responsability to reach the desired score at this opportunity. It’s more a test for me have a ideia of the exam. The exam “for true” will be in probably in January and my aim is reach 110+ and better than that : effectively enhance my english. I’m confident that i can do 110+ in six months of hard word with regular study.

    My aim with this email is narrow our relation, because we probably will work together for a long period and i need the better of your guidance during this period, since i’m depositing my money and my confident in you and your course.

    Hi Michael

    I’ve given the TOEFL only once and without preparation. I got 102 (28 R, 29 L, 23 S and 22 W). My aim is to score above 109. How will your course help me achieve that?

    Regards

  103. Good afternoon mr. Michael! This is my first time to join tyour online course. I`ve already made my payment. When will you send me my username and password? how long does it take. I really want to start quickly today. Would you suggest me also methods to improve my reading and listening skills? Thanks

  104. Hello!

    I’m from Armenia.I wonder if I can have access to your course.I’m not sure whether Paypal is used in Armenia or not.Also I would like to know when is it useful to take the course?how many months before the exam day?
    Thanks!

    1. Ani,

      Thank for your questions about payments and duration of the lessons in this Online TOEFL course.

      First of all, according to the Pay Pal Web Site at https://www.paypal.com/worldwide/, your country is allowed to send money worldwide to other countries although I think there may be some limitations. You will find out what those limitations are when you create your Pay Pal account. Keep me informed throughout the process, and I will work out something that works for you.

      Second of all, how long you should take this course before exam day depends on 1) what your current English proficiency is and 2) how high of a TOEFL score you want to get. Since most students are at varying levels of English proficiency and also have different TOEFL goals, I can not easily answer this question. Still, let’s consider a typical student who joins my Online TOEFL Course.

      Case in point, suppose you have a current TOEFL score of 86 with scores of 22, 21, 22, 21 in the reading, listening, speaking, and writing sections of the exam. Moreover, let’s suppose you wanted to score higher than 100. Based on this situation, the student would need to begin preparing 3-4 months before the actual exam in order to reach this goal.

      In addition, your motivation, your attitude, and how frequently you practice on a daily basis can have an impact on either shortening or lengthening the 3-4 month window of learning that you will need.

      In the final analysis, every student is different when it comes to preparing for the TOEFL, and I can promise you that, if you are ready to battle the TOEFL, I am willing to help you reach your goals no matter how long it takes. My Online TOEFL Course is packed with 330 lessons, and you will be able to get feedback from me after completing pronunciation, speaking, and writing practice tests.

      All the best to your high-scoring TOEFL success!

      Michael

  105. Hi Michael,

    My name is Chillie. I just signed up for the 7 steps course. I took the Toefl test last two months ago and I got 61. (12,11,23,15–>Reading,Listening,Speaking,Writing) I need to improve it to at least 92 points as the college requires. I know it sounds impossible, but I really want to get into the college that I want. Could you please help me about this? I think I have about 4 months for preparing for the test. Is it possible for me ?

    Thank You,

    Dear Michael,
    Not to your surprise, I am writing about your TOEFL IBT courses. Well, let me briefly introduce myself. I work as a research assistant in division of English language teaching. Badly need to get a high score in TOEFL (at least above 105 and above 110 would be perfect) to get my PHd degree in the USA as I will be applying this fall. It is the first time that I am taking this exam and I will sit at the end of the month as I am short in time for application procedures. I started studying reading and listening sections… Anyway, not to make it longer, today, I came to see that I need a professional help in order that I can get a high mark as you are the expert in this field (my comprehensive research let me says so) and I need to save time.

    What I need is that I want to make sure (although I listened that it does) that your course does not only offer feedback session, instructions as well such as introducing each section, speaking and writing samples, steps for writing and so forth.

    Finally, I quite much appreciate if my identifying information (name, country, occupation) would be kept anonymous.
    Hope to hear from you soon Michael and thanks for creating such a world which leads to enhance people’s life for better and even save it!

    Sincere regards,

    Sarah

How many full length test do you have? Does $35 include practice tests? As I do have much time do you have a fast track program?

    My name is Adil ******************, emailing you from *************. I’m writing in reference to seeking your assistance in regarding to a personal matter. I lost all my vision when I was 5 years-old. I took my education at a blind residential school where there were no special equipments for the blind to use. Despite the challenges I faced during my studies, I focussed more on my personal efferts to learn. After I obtained high school deploma in 1994, I found myself alone with no services for the blind at all. I kept teaching myself by myself. As a result of that, I learned braille grade 1,2 in 3 languages, )English, French and Arabic(.

    An American friend of mine is presently working on helping me to obtain college education in America. I decided to take the Toefl and then do fundraising to pay for my college studies over there.

    My request is to help me study for the TOEFL with a discount. also, I hope you can advice me of what to do to reach this dream.

    Dear Professor Michael,

    I am Hoda, an architect and aim to pursue my education and experience to an advanced level. This demands to study in the USA. I am planning to apply for the Fall 2013 semester, which requires me to get high score in TOEFL IBT very soon. I am not the person who reads a lot, as I am more interested in craft work. I started to read extensively for around a month now. I took a placement test at AMIDEAST month ago, on which I scored:

    Listening: 17/30
    Structure: 22/30
    Reading: 24/30
    Writing: 4.5/6
    Total: 547/677
    Please note that I entered this test without doing any prior preparation. I have decided to take this test one day in advance.

    I bought the Official guide of TOEFL and the Value Pack month ago, I worked upon the Reading and Listening sections till now.

    I can not read quickly. I took from seven to ten minutes to read the comprehension. It is too slow.

    I tried once to take a full IBT test, but I felt panic from the Speaking Section, I could not imagine the one way conversation method. The idea of not talking to a human back and forth.

    I am the kind of person who perform lower than my real academic level in the tests.

    Sorry for taking too much, but I would appreciate your advise.
    How long time do you expect I need to be very well prepared for the TOEFL IBT Test?
    Do you think I can get a high score?

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

    Hi Michael,

    I’m a current TESOL student studying in *******. Even though I was already in TESOL program, I still need to pass TOEFL iBT(79/80) before I graduate. Actually I took comps already, but I didn’t pass it because my English writing is terrible. So my adviser require me to pass TOEFL iBT before retaking comps. I know how hard to pass it. It takes long time to prepare, but I only have one quarter to prepare it. I feel so stressful. I evaluated your online program 7steps to pass toefl test, which is a pretty good program to help students learn well. It contains a series of learning strategies, so I’m thinking about to use it to pass TOEFL.

    Based on my situation, could you give me some advise? Also, is there any discount for ********** students?

    My name is Alex, I took the exam few days ago and I got 74 (R.19, L.19, S.18, W.18). I´m planning to apply for a law master degree, where the scores requested are really high, I need at least 100, so I want to know if you can help me to accomplish this score, in all your experience as teacher I would like you tell me how many hours a day I need to study your course???, How long do I have to take your course???
    On the other hand, I do not have pay pal, so I´m planning to send you the payment by westerunion, so I would like you give me an e-mail in order to send you the westernunion´s invoice, where the packet will be send.

    I have no problems with the writing, reading or listening parts. However, I have some serious issues with the Speaking because of my bad pronunciation and the way I talk. Could I subscribe to a program which is more focused on the speaking part i.e. receiving individualised feedback on my speaking responses etc. ?
    What would your remuneration be for that exquisite service?

  120. hello Mr Michael,

    I am having a problem with the toefl test..I’ve already taken the toefl IBT test and my score was 54 but the university wants 71, then I took the toefl pbt test 3 times and my scores were as following ( 477)(473)(497)
    listening (51)
    structure (48)
    reading ( 50)
    this is my last score which is 497/677
    The university wants 530 minimum.I studied this book(longman).I am going to retake it again.My grammar is not improving in all three tests they are always 48 and also after i studied this book.
    So what do I have to do to get a score of 530 minimum.Which books do you recommend me to study? please help me.
    Thank you so much
    regards,
    Sara.

    1. Online TOEFL Course

      Sara,

      Improving your TOEFL iBT score from 54 to 71 is no small task, and, even though you are studying TOEFL books, you are still not making the progress that you seek, right? I do not know your entire language background or history, but it sounds like you might be suffering from TOEFLitis. In fact, you may be putting the cart before the horse.

      First of all, what does it mean to suffer from TOEFLitis? TOEFLitis, a term I coined a few years back, refers to a language learner who becomes obsessed with the TOEFL exam, often at the point of neglecting to achieve significant progress in second language acquisition. Instead of talking to native speakers on a regular basis, these learners almost exclusively learn their English from test preparation books. They may not read magazines, newspapers, or books, and they seldom take time to listen to news broadcasts and music in English. Learners suffering from TOEFLitis are too busy to watch scientific, history and other forms of documentaries on television. Focusing too much on test preparation and not enough time on authentic language acquisition, these learners hit a language wall. They wonder why they can not make progress.

      Second of all, what does it mean to put the cart before the horse? It refers to focusing on TOEFL iBT test-taking strategies without having first acquired the basic vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, listening, reading, writing, and speaking proficiency needed in order to use the language at the most basic level. Learners who put the cart before the horse often have wide disparities among their language skill areas. For example, maybe they can read proficiently but are unable to carry on the most basic conversation with a native speaker.

      Third of all, Sara, the way you will need to beat the TOEFL to reach your goals is to put down your TOEFL books for a while and focus on the basics. Now I am not criticizing the Longman book you referred to in your comment. Heck I use the very same book at California State University, San Bernardino. But there is a time and place for everything, Your 490+ TOEFL score indicates that you still have some genuine language problems to solve. The real question is this, “Are you willing to solve these problems?”

      To conclude, I recommend that you use my Online TOEFL Course for three months: the first month focusing on studying my vocabulary, pronunciation, and grammar parts; the second month concentrating on the listening and reading sections; and the third month making an honest effort on improving your writing and speaking proficiencies. After working harder than you have ever worked in your life and after having gotten back huge amounts of constructive audio, video, and written feedback from me after your completion of pronunciation, writing, and speaking practice tests, you will have achieved the following milestones:

      1. A working knowledge of 1,700 basic and college-level vocabulary words

      2. A high intelligibility and speaking proficiency undistracting to native speakers

      3. Improved mastery of basic and complex grammatical structures

      4. Enhanced listening comprehension proficiency for academic lectures and an effective note-taking system

      5. Better comprehension and concentration, including achieving a reading speed of 300+ words per minute with 80% comprehension of academic reading passages.

      6. More coherent organization of writing with fewer errors and a lot more development of ideas

      7. Clearer, smoother, and more organized speaking

      And after having achieved these objectives, I have a sneaky suspicion that you will also have improved your TOEFL score as well. And guess what? It will be a lot higher than 71!

    Reading…..5
    listening….15
    speaking….19
    writing….15
    The university requires 71 for the toefl ibt and for me this test was very hard…
    So please can you tell me what I have to do to score 71 minimum… I know that I have to improve my reading but the problem that I dont remember the vocabulary or the definition for a word after learning the words and for listening which movies or lectures do you recommend me to listen to.
    How I can improve my score before 20 of the comming september because the university will start and I have to do this test again… I know it is a short period.

    Thank you for your help…

  127. Hi, Michael,

    I watched your video on wwww.youtube.com for many students about improve toefl score. You mentioned that test taker should read 45minutes every day. I believe that this is very important for us to improve reading ability. However, could you give us some details for how to read a book. I have some unknown vocabulary in every page, should I skip these vocabularies as long as I can understand the main idea? Or should I look for the dictionary? Some of these words are out of the TOEFL words, should I still need to remember these vocabularies?

    By the way, I want to know some policy of your service. How many speaking audio could we record which you would give us the score? And the writing section as well. I heard one of your worker named Nathan said only one audio can be scored every day? Is that correct?

    Thanks

      1. Michael,

        I am really impressed by your prompt response. That’s sounds good: One speaking audio and one writing everyday. I have used many TOEFL services before, and few of them work for me. I hope I could get higher TOEFL score with your help.

        Thanks.

        Maggie

        1. Maggie,

          There is no “hope” that you will get a higher TOEFL score. You will score higher. The real question is this, “How high of a score will you be able to get and how much time and effort on your part (And mine!) will it take for you to achieve that result. Do not give up until you reach your goal. Oh I could tell you a dozen stories about amazing students who did not give up until they met their goals.

          P.A.C.E. Positive Attitude Changes Everything

          Read this article about one of my former students: http://www.bettertoeflscores.com/attitude-is-everything-when-you-decide-to-take-an-online-toefl-course/7278/

          Michael

    2. Maggie,

      Yes, Nate is right. Only submit ONE speaking and ONE writing practice test per day while you are one of my students. Submitting more than that will make it difficult me to help all my TOEFL students, all of whom want their speaking and writing practice tests scored in a timely manner.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  128. Dear Mr. Michael
    I am new student. Please advice how I can find out the question of independent speaking topic from your online course, so I can practise in VOXOPOP. I’ve tried to look for it from my online course and in The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT VOXOPOP but I can not see it.
    I long for to hear from you. Thank you.
    Yours Sincerely,
    Fong

    1. Fong,

      Watch this video to find out how to find the independent and integrated speaking practice tests. There are a total of 50, and they are very easy to find:

      Thanks,
      Michael

  129. Hi Michael,

    I have posted my two-part response for the Pre-Test yesterday.
    Could you please critique them when it is convenient to you?

    Thanks!
    Fiona

    1. Fiona,

      I listened to your two-part pre-test last night. Wow, you have a very natural sounding tone in English! It is not easy to acquire that type of tone. How did you get to you current level of speaking and pronunciation proficiency?

      Keep up the good work!

      Michael

      1. Michael,

        Thanks for your nice comments! The study abroad experience gave me an opportunity to immerse myself in an English-speaking environment and to improve my language skills.

        I will keep up the good work with your help!

        Fiona

        1. Fiona,

    I’m unable to open some videos in the Reading part, for example lesson 2. Please let me know, how can I open them?
    and I got 2.8-3 score in diagnostic pre-tests(low intermediate).
    I’m practicing on lessons that you recommended me, but I need more practice to speak fluent and without grammar problems.

    1. Azi,

      Some of the videos and lessons at my site require the most updated versions of certain plug-ins that you will need to download in order to view my lessons.

      Download flash video: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
      Download javascript: http://www.java.com/en/download/index.jsp

    1. Hafed,

      I already recorded audio files of the 1,700 words and have created audio links to those words in TOEFL Vocabulary lessons 4-6.

      Thanks,

      Michael

  142. hello Mr Michael,

    Thank you for your replay.I don’t know if you remember me. I told you about my problem in the reading and remembering the word and I told you that my score in the toefl ibt was 54 and I want to improve it and to get 71 minimum. My question is if I followed the 3 months plan and I take the toefl ibt again after this plan will I be able to score 71 minimum.If I want to sent the money(bank transfer) how many days it will take to receive the payment?

    Thank you again for your help

    kelly,

    1. Kelly,

      I remember that I prepared a video answering some of your TOEFL questions about my Online TOEFL Course and particularly that you were interested in making improvements in your reading proficiency.

      There are no absolute certainties when it comes to getting a specific score on the TOEFL iBT, but, if you practice regularly at my Online TOEFL Course and follow the plan I have set forth, you have a good chance of reaching your goal in 90 days.

      Concerning how long it will take you to wire transfer the money, I think I will be able to receive it within 24 hours, after which I will create your username and password so that you can have three months of access to all the vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, reading, listening, writing, and speaking lessons. During that time, you can post ONE speaking and ONE writing practice test per day, and either my TOEFL iBT specialists or I will evaluate those practice tests, helping you to see what score you would get, why, and what lessons you should review at my Online TOEFL Course in order to improve.

      Making improvements in your speaking and writing proficiencies is a gradual process, but, if you are willing to complete the practice tests on a regular basis, I will be able to help you improve.

      Thanks for you additional questions, and I hope to have you as one of my students soon!

      Michael

      1. hello Mr Michael,

        Thank you for your help and you really give me hope that if I followed your plan I will be able to reach my goal.I will work hard to improve my score.I will send the money to the same address that it is provided in the FAQ page and then I will email you and give you the pin number that they give it to me.Thank you again for your help

          Kelly,

          Like countless others who have come before you, you will pass the TOEFL. The real question is, “When will you reach your TOEFL goals?” Your hard work, regular practice, and motivation will help you reach your academic English goals.

          Just remember this one thing: no matter how difficult it may seem, never ever give up on your dream. Eventually, your dream will become a reality.

          Michael

  143. where can I find the audio book for vocabulary?

    1. Yasmin,

      In my Online TOEFL Course, I think you are referring to my TOEFL Vocabulary Lesson 3, which is an e-book containing 20 lessons to help you learn some basic vocabulary for the TOEFL iBT. Go here to get access to that lesson: http://stealth.bettertoeflscores.com/mod/page/view.php?id=9

      Thanks,

    Please help me, I´ve paid but I can´t access, what could be happening?

  145. Hi I tried to subscribe and just paid by paypal just now. I hope I could get feedback from my speaking and listening as It is so hard to learn it without any feedback, thank you.

    1. Februwaty,

      I just created your username and password so that you now have access to all 330 lessons in my Online TOEFL Course.

      Regarding feedback with your speaking, I recommend that you immediately complete the pronunciation pre-test so that I can diagnose any problems you might be having with vowels, consonants, syllable division and grammatical word endings, word stress, sentence rhythm, intonation, thought groups, and blending.

      All the best to your high-scoring TOEFL success!

      Michael

  146. Hello Mr Michael,

    I sent the money by bank to the address in the FAQ page and the pin number that they gave to me was sent to your e-mail.So can you please check your e-mail

    I hope that I can reach my goal with your help,
    thank you,

    kelly

    1. hello Mr Micheal,

      I am sorry about all these question,I forget to ask you how much hours do I have to study each day to reach my goal which is 71 minimum? My previous score was 54.

      I appreciate your help
      thank you again,

      kelly

      1. Kelly,

        I suggest two things to help you in your TOEFL progress: that you use my Online TOEFL Course no more than 3 hours a day and that you also take time each day reading magazines, newspapers, and books; listening to news radio and music; and spending time speaking English to native speakers. You want to avoid TOEFL burnout, and you want to keep your mind fresh, which is why I make these two suggestions.

        Your goal as you study the lessons in my Online TOEFL Course is to achieve the following objectives:

        1. A minimum score of 80% on the vocabulary final exam for all 1,700 TOEFL words that you study in my course.

        2. A score of 5.1/7.0 on the pronunciation post-test.

        3. Mastery of all grammar lessons and practice exercises, including lesson 7.

        4. Scores of 85% or higher on the listening practice tests.

        5. A reading speed of 300 words per minute with 80% comprehension.

        6. Consistent scores of 22 to 24 points on the independent and integrated writing practice tests.

        7. Consistent scores of 24 to 26 points on the independent and integrated speaking practice tests.

        Once you have achieved these objectives, it is likely that you will be able to achieve your TOEFL goals. And most importantly, you will have developed a highly functional form of English that will help you in academic, professional, and personal situations.

        Michael

        Yes he did, I saw it now.Thank you
        He gave me 3.8 to 4,do you think that this score is good?

        thank you,

        kelly

        1. Kelly,

          By the time you complete my Pronunciation Pre-test, you will want to score higher than 5.1/7.0. A score of 3.8/7.0 means that you will have pronunciation difficulties when completing TOEFL speaking tasks, and the TOEFL iBT human raters are going to score you lower because of that. Therefore, work hard and complete all my Speak Clearly lessons until you can comfortably pronounce all the sounds in each exercise.

          Finally, based on your score, you should consider using my additional speaking and pronunciation service: http://stealth.bettertoeflscores.com/mod/page/view.php?id=434

          Michael

    Hi Michael,
    I just got your message.
    With score of 94 I had read 28, list 23, speaking 23, writing 20. With 89 I had 26, 20,22 and 21.
    I have to take the test no later than the end of this october. Do you think it’s possible? Is it too hard?
    I would like to know how much it costs per month and if I can stop taking courses after one month.
    Thanks.

    Hi Michael,

    My name is Vincent Lin,
    I am very interested about your online TOEFL courses, but my vocabulary skill isn’t good, of course, neither other skills.

    Will you suggest me go improving my vocabulary before join your classes?
    Or, I can just go ahead to join your classes straightly.

    Thank you for helping,

      I e-mailed your pre-test to Nate, who should have scored it. Did you get your comments from him? From now on, please record all your responses at my Voxopop Discussion Group.

      However, I do realize that the Voxopop Discussion Group was not working a couple of weeks ago for 2 days, which is why you might have submitted the pre-test to me by e-mail.

    Hello Mr. Buckhoff,

    I just came across one of your toefl videos on youtube. I’m a turkish university student and i’m thinking about taking the toefl test on the 13th of october. I learned english in the united states when i was in elementary school ..i studied 3rd 4th and 8th grade in the US. I’m pretty comfortable with my english BUT i really want to get a score above 100. So my question is do you think there is hope for me?

    Thank you very much for your attention

    Selin from Turkey

    PS: my english teacher in the 8th grade recommended that i should take intensified english classes in high school

  179. Hello Mr.Buckhoff

    I am a Bachelor student from Albania, and I am going to take my Toefl test on 6th of October. Today I found out one of your videos on youtube and I will begining to watch each one of them for sure, but I wanted any last advice from you on how to use the remaining time to the fullest. I have studied english for so many years yet there is a lot of thing for me to improve but I can say that I am truly,madly, deeply in love with this language. I am glad I found you, and I would be more than happy to follow any of your last advices so that I can score a higher. 🙂

    PS. Or is it to late to ask?

    1. PS(2) I was so enthusiastic to write that I have done mistakes all the way :/

    2. Maria,

      There is not a lot you can do in four days to make a difference in your score. However, go to http://www.TOEFL.org and review the “Inside the TOEFL” videos as they relate to the speaking and writing portions of the exam.

      Good luck!

    Dear Michael

    I have taken the Toefl exam today, I Think my average score will be between 70 and 80. I hope its not less than that. Tell me why I may talk this course with you. The first reason for me is that your course is online and so I can practice any time on your test, Is that right. My question is; Will 35 dollar will give the opportunity to access your practice tests or there will be an extra charge for them. I have finished Cambridge and long man tests. but long man test seems to be a not a toefl prepration martial. In Cambridge exams i use have between 17 and 24 out of 30. The worst scores are always in reading tasks.

    I need you to evaluate my writing and speaking.
    I like your way of teaching but I don’t like broadcasting my private practice online (YouTube) . If you have a placement test I will be happy. I can start now because I will take the exam next month.

    also my top reading speed is about 230 wpm but i do get stuck on the questions, eventhough i do have large vocabulary though. besides i cant read at least 300 wpm, or else i cant understand what im reading. the fastest speed reading that i have is about 230 or so i quite get the main idea. My normal reading speed is maybe about 200-220 wpm, which is quite normal.

    i also bought a toefl ibt book guide, but when i began doing the reading and listening parts of the practice tests, i got a grade around 50%, and i dont know what it went wrong? would you help me in some way other than your online toefl ibt prep course? What do you recommend me to do?

    Thank you once again

    Dear Michael,

    I am retaking TOEFL early November, and I want to score more than 100, as on my first TOEFL iBT I had 76 and I didn’t liked it. My weaknesses were in reading and listening. It was early in the morning when I was taking the test, wherefore I couldn’t concentrate on the reading part.

    I tried to subscribe for your 7 step system, but didn’t work. as the country I live in, was not on the PayPal registration list. I live in Kosovo, so do you have any idea how can I get your online instructions, and pay with my Kosovo card. And do you think you can help me score above 100 on my second time taking TOEFL iBT?

    Thank you in advance,

    Good evening, Michael,

    I’m a new user of your course. I’ve absolute confidence in the way that you provide the preparation, I want to state my case here to give me your advice.

    I’m ESL student in NYC, I studied English for two years, actually one year in focus. My TOEFL score is 69. I took the exam without any preparation for the first time last week to know where should I focus. I have to get 100 within 6 months to apply for Master’s degree In Laws here in the U.S. What do suggest for me? How can I get this score? Is it possible to obtain that in six months?The biggest problem that I have is Writing. what stressed me is that I’m good writer in Arabic!

    I’m waiting for your response and I’ll do what it takes to get the score.
    My score is attached.

    Best,

    I really do appreciate your comment and hope to follow it strictly. I do have plan for free reading and watching tv for more than 2 hours a day. I started doing this after your suggestions in one of your videos and I like this way of learning.

    My another question is how much time do I have to spend on your course in average to get the plan done within 4 months? Also, how can I take the advantage from the skill that I have in listening to close the gap between listening and other skills.

    Hello

    I am going for another Toefl test on December. I’m Brazilian..First toefl IBT test, I got 86.. unfortunely university requests 100. I need study to reach it .

    So, in one month , because the test will be on December , which kind of study can I do with your “teaching system”?
    I see in your website in the table (or board) there are, among others , 50 hrs of Pronunciation, 14 Speaking .
    Can I go for all in one month ?

    Thanks in advance

  227. Hi Michael, so I took the exam on the 19th of October- Reading 23 (got better, previous test I got 21), Listening 22 (the same as last time), Writing 22 (last time I had 24- my independent writing is 4.0-5.0, but integrated writing what bothers me 2.5-3.0), and speaking 28 (last time it was 29). I NEED 100 and up, and I keep getting 95 (96 last time). I don’t have much time, as the deadline for one of the universities that I am applying is January 1st, but I also study for my dental boards, that is exactly why I thought just to hurry up with my English test and concentrate on the Dental exam (which is in February, 2013). Could you please let me know what do you think would be the best strategy in my case? As I said I need 100 and up. Prompt answer would be much appreciated 🙂

      1. Thanks for your response Michael. I actually took a month of your course, I was concentrating on the reading, and I did get better in it (2 points, not bad at all). Thank you for that! And I know your course works! The only thing is I would like to know, in your opinion, if I study 1 hour a day, do u think I can reach my goal by Dec 15? I mean I am going to read and study for my dental boards a lot of hours a day in English, but I am talking about your course an hour a day… I’m just so confused at this point, and with all this studies, I think I’m going to go crazy. I need an advice from you, from a person who has a lot of experience with international students.

    My question is: what do you think is the best way for me to achieve a better score studying with your system? I took the toefl test one month ago receiving an overall score of 76, 20 reading 18 listening 20 speaking 18 writing. I am really worry due to the fact I have to take the exam again in one month, and I have to get an overall of 87, 21 reading 17 listening 24 speaking 25 writing… what do you recommend me to focus on?

  236. hey michael, im still having trouble on the reading section of the toefl ibt. see i bought the toefl ibt book guide and began doing the reading section practice test but every time i do the section, i always get around 50% and ive done it over and over and i dont know whats wrong. i read the passages pretty fast but i seriously dont know what im doing wrong. I do get an idea of what the passages are about. I really dont want to go back to the IEP courses. I really need your help in some way! I dont want to fail the toefl once again. Im sick of getting 12-14/30 on the reading section. i just want to increase this score. For me seriously the questions are hard to analyze and the answer choices are really similar. I really need a guide or something related to the reading section that helps me to improve my score. Im really disappointing and dont know what to do…I do read on a variety of topics but when i answer the questions i dont know whats wrong. :'(. Ive done a few of your step 5 reading exercises and i do good on it and also on the listening part. Please i REALLY NEED YOU TO HELP ME! I BEG YOU MORE THAN U CAN EVER IMAGINE…I really wanna start college on january.

    ps: i really wish u could come in person to help me lol. I really need some extra tutoring or something.

    1. by the way, im afraid to get the same score as last time, and i dont want that to happen again. i really get stuck on the questions and answer choices. D: i seriously dont know what to do! I dont want to freak out. I just want to pass the toefl with at least a 71 in some way for the university of louisiana at lafayette.

    I got my toefl scores today and my score is 93. Speaking was my biggest concern and I got 26 in speaking.
    But as I took the test first time, I got nervous in the starting and my reading score dropped to 20. I got 23 in listening and 24 in writing. Is 93 a good score?

    Thanks for your encouragement and advice.

    1) Do i get to read the passage anytime in the reading section or it appears only once before the questions starts?
    2) The Score in real test could be less or more than the practice tests given in ETS, Barron’s books?
    3)How Speaking Section and Writing Section is scored? I am giving practice tests but how do i know how well i have scored?

  241. Hi Machael,
    I’m one of your students, and I took your course for a month, and then canceled it, as I had an exam, and I was hoping I’ll do as good as I need to, but unfortunately, it didn’t happen, so I signed up for your course again a week ago. Last time, I wrote Integrated Writing Test 1 and 2, but I didn’t pay for the evaluation, so I know that Nate graded it as 21. Now I would like to actually pay for the evaluation to see where I am going wrong. Do you keep the records? Or as soon as we cancel the course the history deletes as well? Please let me know if you can find it or I have to rewrite it. I used the same e-mail address in September, 2012.
    Thank you
    p.s. also I submitted integrated writing test 4 two days ago, I believe, but still no news.

    1. oh I just checked and saw that the evaluation has been done, I just never got an email, which is weired. But thanks anyways 🙂

      1. Armine,

        Maybe one of my teaching assistants who scored your essay forgot to send you an e-mail. Keep up the good work. The more writing practice tests you take, the more feedback you will get, and the better you will become.

      1. Hi Michael! Thank you for all your reply, despite your busy schedule you are always prompt in answering and I would like to thank you for that. I am planning to pay for the evaluation, cuz I really think that will help me a lot, but for now I would like to focus on what I am doing wrong at this point. And as much as I can evaluate it myself, my weakness is note taking. Can u please help me in telling me how I can improve my note taking. I noticed that I am just losing my focusing in the middle of the lecture, I guess im trying to write what I just heard and by doing so I am not paying attention to the rest of the lecture. So thats one of the reasons why my integrated writing is so bad- i just don’t know what to write cause i didn’t hear it:) Anything you can suggest me?! Thanks a lot

  245. hello professor , if i take your speaking and writing test, are you going to grade my speaking and writing skills and correct my mistakes or just i have to read the boring steps to help improve my writing and speaking by myself. are you going to improve my English structure, run on sentences and grammar mistakes or you are going to evaluate my essay and grading it fairly. last question, if i want to take your seven steps, how much do i have to pay, and how can i pay, i need a score of 80 over 120 ,can you help me to reach my goal or not. i wish you reply soon and thank you.

    1. Ali,

      Thank you for making a comment at my Web Site for my Online TOEFL Course called “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT”. After reading this message, I hope you will have a better idea about my course, especially relating to speaking, writing, grammar, cost, and method of payment.

You will have to read/watch the post/videos for all these lessons by yourself.

To see what type of feedback you will get after completing a speaking practice test, go here: http://www.voxopop.com/group/9ab94679-8dc8-4498-81b0-1cf35000d9be

Moreover, you will have the opportunity to complete 10 independent and 10 integrated writing practice tests. For your payment subscription of $35, your essays will not be corrected, and you will have to read some recommended lessons based on your score. However, you can take advantage of an additional error correction service should you wish private 1-1 video correcting of your essays. This service costs $500.00, which allows you to have all 20 of your essays to be video-corrected by a trained TOEFL iBT writing specialist. Watch the following video to learn more about how this error correction service works: http://youtu.be/tAfvB_Xt2i0

      Your essays will be fairly graded according to the TOEFL iBT independent and integrated writing rubrics:

      http://www.bettertoeflscores.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/explanation-about-your-integrated-writing-score.pdf

      Grammar: Thousands of grammar lessons will help you to improve your sentence structure, word choice, punctuation, grammar, and all the other important areas to help you use both basic and complex grammar accurately as you complete speaking and writing practice tests. You will need to complete all these lessons by yourself.

Here is my contact information in case you should decide to wire me $105.00: Michael Buckhoff / 13509 Buena Vista Drive / Hesperia, California 92344.

      Reaching your TOEFL goal of 80 depends on you and you alone. I can certainly provide the materials and practice exercises to help improve your academic English, but you must use the materials regularly–if you want to improve. When you have questions, you can e-mail me and I will do my best to answer your questions and to help you solve as many language problems as possible.

      All the best to your high-scoring success!

      Michael

  246. hey michael this is diego once again from guatemala and i was just wondering if you can please make a video on how to answer each type of question of the reading and listening section so i can get a general idea on how to answer them the best way possible when I take my test. Im taking the TOEFL on Dec 14 and i just need a guide to answer the toefl reading and listening section (because you already know that in those 2 areas is where i get stuck).

    Thank you once again for your help,

    Diego

    1. Diego,

      I haven’t any listening lessons that cover that, but you have given me a good idea of something I need to include in my course.

      On the other hand, I do have several reading lessons that will help you to identify the different reading questions types and the strategies for answering them:

      Lesson 2: Vocabulary, Pronoun Referent, and Paraphrase Question Types http://stealth.bettertoeflscores.com/mod/page/view.php?id=34

      Lesson 3: Insert Sentence, Detail, Negative Detail, and Implied Detail Question Types http://stealth.bettertoeflscores.com/mod/page/view.php?id=35

      Lesson 4: Infer Rhetorical Purpose, Summary Chart, and Schematic Table Question Types http://stealth.bettertoeflscores.com/mod/page/view.php?id=36

      Keep up the good work!

      Michael

  251. Hi Michael.
    I was interested about your TOEFL online score.
    Last month I took TOEFL IBT test, actually it was my first time test, and I got only 55 which was :
    Reading 12
    Listening 8
    Speaking 18
    Writing 17
    The problem is I have to get above 90 score, because its the minimum score for study Master degree in Business major. But I didn’t have enough money to pay 35$/month, do you have some discounts for it?
    any idea? I am looking forward.

    Thanks

    1. Elaf,

      Here are my comments to you:

      Thanks,

      Michael

  254. Thank you Michael! I really appreciate your support and all your help! I have an exam on Dec 7/12, so let’s cross the fingers! (I need at least 100- and last time I got 96, if you remember me mentioning it before). I won’t stop working on myself till than and I really hope I can get at least 26/30 on my Writing section, thanks to your tips. I know I`m still not there, but I hope 5 more days of studies will make me do good. I just wanted to say thank you one more time, I am very happy that I chose your 7 step system and You for my preparation for TOEFL IBT! 🙂 I recommend you everyone! THANK YOU!

    1. Armine,

      You are very welcome! I am delighted to have you as a student, and your hard work will be the recipe for your TOEFL writing success. Just keep at it: taking as many writing and speaking practice tests as you can, all the while getting feedback from me or from my TOEFL writing and speaking specialist Jacob, who like me has an MA in Composition with a supplemental emphasis in TESOL.

      You may have noticed that over the weekend, I just added 20 more independent writing tasks to my Online TOEFL Course, thereby bringing the total number of independent writing tasks to 30. And all of the writing tasks I use come directly from ETS’s Web Site.

      I admire your tenacity in that you will not stop working until you reach your goal. It is that type of attitude that will drive you to success not only for the TOEFL but also for life in general. I wish you all the best as you continue to solve a few more language problems over the next five days. Like you, I will also keep my fingers crossed when you take your upcoming TOEFL exam.

      Lastly, thank you for making your recommendations about my course. A TOEFL teacher is only as good as his students, and you are a great student. Keep up the good work, hold you head high, and keep a consistent study routine over the next few days. I recommend that you continue to post speaking practice tests daily so you can keep yourself prepared.

      All the best to you high-scoring TOEFL success!

      Michael

      1. Michael, to be honest I’m not practicing Speaking section, as my score is pretty high 29/30, that’s why I am just focusing on my integrated writing right now. I read books- so that should take care of my Reading part, listen to your “listening practice tests” and writing the essays. I live in Canada and I’m married to a Canadian, and I work here as well, so I speak English all day 🙂 My biggest concern is the integrated writing. You did go over my essay yesterday, so today I’m going to work on myself, and maybe tomorrow will send you another essay to edit. I know how busy you are, but PLEASE respond as soon as you receive my essay (so far you edited 2 of my essays and you responded pretty quick, I’m just freaking out 🙂 ), as I have few days left, and this is my last chance to get into school in 2013 (I did my dental exams, applied to university, the only thing that is missing is TOEFL IBT)…Anyhow thanks again Michael, you are great!

        p.s. Students who read my comments and not sure if they should take this course- JUST DO IT! It’s totally worse it! The price for the course is so low and the results are great! Good luck everyone!

    My name is M@#$%^&*. I am a Msc Student in #$%*&(). Also I am research assistant in the same university. I want to take my government scholarship and it needs 85-90 in Toefl IBT. I took test once and my score is 65 in January 2012. Before test I prepare 2 months by myself when I did test at home I took 85 and up. But After I disappointed about Toefl so I gave up to study. I attended language school in #$%&^*(* for 2 months in 2011 and in America for 3 months. But they were not only exam preparation, they were General English. These courses just help my speaking skills. My mainly question is how many weeks i need to take my goal point in Toefl. I need my score before February. Is it possible?

    I am so thankful for your constructive feedbacks/evaluations. My typing speed
    is too slow and not accurate too. I am focusing to improve. I have not gotten
    chance time for editing. I now feel I had to find the 7 Step System before 3
    years. I started preparing in 2009. Most important thing my reading is so poor.
    I spent so much time for improving reading skills, but I still get lost when I
    read long paragraphs. I do not expect better scores on other sections because I
    have not provided time for them. I have shared some my weakness with Michael.
    If you get an opportunity to speak with hime, please discuss about me. If you
    would to like to hear about my struggles in improving English, I will share
    with you in the future.

    Thank you so much again.

  259. I have been preparing for the Toefl test for months. I set a goal that I must receive more than 100 points in this essential test(writing 27 speaking 25 listening 27 and reading 28. I plan to take this test next one and a half year. My problem is that I can’t take good notes and I can’t organise well. In addition, my speaking skills are also quite bad, especially my fluency.(My pronunciation is good). The Toefl speaking section is so difficult due to its wide variety of sample answers which really confuse me. I have great difficulties accomplishing well speaking section 4 and speaking section 6. Can you possibly give me some useful tips? Thanks a lot.

  260. Dear professor,
    I just received my Toefl score today. I only have 77 (reading 17, listening 20, speaking 19, writing 21). I need more than 80 to apply for a master program in the u.s. I think i did not prepare well enough for the test( i study at home). I also have a problem with my pronunciation and i do not have enough time to reponse to the questions in the test. I intent to take the test again in the end of January. Do you think it is possible for me to get over 80 for next time. What should I practice professor? Thank you so much!

  261. Dear Sir,
    I am not native american and I have to get at least 90 scores on ibt TOEFL. I have test on next Friday. I took toefl last saturday, which was Dec.1. Now I have a one more week. I’m not good at reading and listening. How can I improve it? I read books but I think the book that I read are not academic so during toefl test, if passage is not interesting, I lose my interest and do not pay attention. how can I improve my score? I took toefl in January this year and it was 58. I took toefl class for 2 months but Im afraid that I could not improve. My speaking and writing are better than listening and reading; however, I want to improve too. Help me, please.

    Dear Buckhoff,

    My name is Carlo #$%&^*()*&. I just joined to your TOEFL course, but I have a question: how many times could I do practice tests with your feedback? Thanks for all and I hope for hearing back from you soon.

  268. Hi Michael,
    I have spent so many hours in the net trying to find a place to prepare myself for the Toefl. I traveled to Manchester UK(two months) because I bought an Exam Course Preparation but in the end I realized it was just a kind of fake. Now I need to prepare myself for the Toefl and I think this is the right place. I do have some troubles with my reading and understanding, sometimes I need to read twice or three times the text to understand the meaning. I must take the Toefl iBT in March next year. Do you think you can help me? Thank you!

    1. Hugo,

      Here are my comments to you: http://youtu.be/igJTGYVJ1mE

      1. Hi again Michael, thanks a lot for your quick reply, I really appreciate it.
        I have to say that I am very surprised because of your personalized video, it is just awesome! this is the first time I feel so confident about learning English. I did mention I’d like to have the Toefl in March next year, but I see now that it can take a bit longer. This is not a problem I just want to learn English and get a good score in the test. I’ll be glad to be one of your students. I’ll stay in touch Michael, I’ll finish to read all this information.
        Thanks again and enjoy your holidays 🙂 oh by the way nice to meet your son!

        1. Hugo,

          It was a pleasure to meet you also.

          Thanks,

          Michael

  269. Dear Michael,

    First of all thank you very much to be a hope with your study schedule. I discovered your study technics a bit late.

    I have subscribed STEALTH program for a week. As the results are seen below I focused on reading and listening section.

    Test Test Date Reading Listening Speaking Writing Total
    TELXMLFri Apr 27 10:22:12 EDT 201212 14 19 22 67

    Test Test Date Reading Listening Speaking Writing Total
    TELXMLSat Dec 01 10:09:18 EST 201221 19 19 18 77

    So that I progressed, but I can’t get my goal at least 87. I have only 1 – 1,5 month to retake

    the TOEFL exam. So I need a custom made program, I trust you that you can help me to reach my target.

    I have been studying your lessons and I am about to finish the first 200 vocabulary practices. Everyday I read different subjects on recommended websites one hour. But I need a custom made interactive program. I am determined to pass with flying colors. I
    need your immediate touch.
    I feel myself fortunate to be a your student. Even I would achieve needed score, I aspire to improve the language by using STEALTH.

    For now, thank you very much for your kind attentition.

  271. Dear Michael,
    In all of the payment options described on your blog I did not find the option of Debit card.
    I am writing from :agos Nigeria. Debit card payment seems the best option for me. How do I do? I really need to join your tutorial as my Toefl test is just 5 weeks ahead.

    Thanks
    Emma

    1. Emmanuel,

      If you cannot pay using Pay Pal, you can also pay using Western Union. Go to my FAQ’s Web Page at http://onlinetoeflcourse.com/?page_id=43 to learn more about that option.

      Thanks,

  272. Hi Michael, I received my TOEFL score today. Just to remind that I took the test on December 7th. Unfortunately I did not get 100…:( I got 97. Which is not bad, but I needed 100. This is the breakdown. Reading 22, Listening 22, Speaking 28 (all 3 sections are marked as Good 3.5-4.0) and Writing 25 (both independent and integrated writing are marked as good 4.0-5.0). Any comments/suggestions? I`m glad that my independent writing got better thanks to You and your course, as before I was scoring 22-24 on writing task, with INTERMEDIATE on integrated writing and GOOD on independent. Many thanks for that.

    1. Online TOEFL Course

      Armine,

      Congratulations on your strong score report. Most students would love to be in your shoes for sure. But there is no passing score on the TOEFL, and, as you know, different institutions have as many different requirements for the TOEFL as I have running shoes in my garage. And I’ve got a lot of shoes!

      Based on your results, it looks like you will have to improve more in the reading and the listening sections. Your speaking score is 28/30, so it will be nearly impossible to do much better than that. Likewise, your writing score is strong at 25/30 pts. It may be possible to increase your writing score by a few more points, but I still think you will have to spend more time completing some reading and listening practice tests.

      Use a TOEFL book if you have one, and begin taking reading and listening practice tests and then

      1) Review the test, and make sure you understand which answer is correct and why.

      2) Then, especially focus on your incorrect answers to figure out why the answer you chose is wrong.

      Doing this type of reading and listening practice test analysis will help you to develop better test-taking strategies.

      Of course, hit it hard right now with your extensive reading of 45 minutes each day while you are trying to increase your reading score. Read, read, and read as much as you can: newspapers, magazines, and longer books—anything you can get your hands on. Even keep a vocabulary journal to keep track of unfamiliar words you see. Of course, you can also use my Online TOEFL Course to increase your reading speed to 300 words per minute or more, which is always a good thing in your reading adventures. Faster readers have fewer distractions than slower readers so you will be able to more confidently complete the reading section of the test if you have a faster reading speed.

      Similarly, you will need to hit it hard with practicing with listening materials. Again, spend time listening to news radio and watching news and documentary programs on television. Your whole purpose with your listening practice is to make your ears faster and faster until listening to spoken English becomes as natural as listening to you native tongue. And, as you know, it takes a lot of practice to become bilingual in your listening comprehension skills.

      However, you have proved with an incredible score of 28/30 on the speaking section that you can reach near-native proficiency, which is why I think you will be able to do the same with your listening and reading proficiencies. The key here is to get really and I mean really serious with preparing for the reading and listening parts of the exam, and I suspect you will be able to slay the TOEFL monster once and for all.

      Keep a good fight and stay the course!

      Michael

      Online TOEFL Course

      1. Hi Michael! THANK YOU for your kind words and support!!!! I will continue to read books and watch documentary programs to increase my score in reading and writing sections. A month prior to the exam I will get back to your amazing course and get some help from You! Wishing you and your family Happy Holidays!!! See you in 2013! 🙂

  273. HI, Michael, i got my results for the exam i took on 7th of December. I scored 94 (R20,L20,S29, W25). Thanks for your help. With your speaking and writing tasks i improved my score for many points, And as Armine i need more than 100 for the schools i am applying too.

    Hopefully this time will do better. Is there any books with listening and reading exercises that i can study ? Please advise.

    Thanks again!

    Dear Buckhoff,

    Actually, I registered TOEFL in 2003 and I got 510 or 180 score but As you know, the system of Toefl examination completely changed, for that reason I haven’t take part in TOEFL yet. But if I study very hard, I can believe getting 80 above. On the other hand I will follow your training program

    Best regards

    —————————————————————————-
    Dear Buckhoff,
    I am writing this message from Turkey. I have just subscribed to TOEFL training program. I need a special help, hence; first of all I must hit the books and I must follow your training program. At the end of this program I hope I could get 100 score

    Best regards

  276. Dear Michael,
    I received my toefl score yesterday.I got 77(R17,L19,S19,W22). But I need 92 and I want to know how many months I should study for getting 92.

    Thanks,
    Anna

    1. Online TOEFL Course

      Anna,

      Most students who use my Online TOEFL Course increase their overall score 5-10 points for each month that they use my course. Keeping this in mind, my best guess is that you will need 2-3 months of solving vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, listening, reading, writing, and speaking problems before you reach 92.

      Merry Christmas!

    Hi,

    I took TOEFL test this month and scored 105(R28,L30,S23,W24). I didn’t know well about the minimum score in individual section as I prepared for it by my self and the book I followed mentioned nothing about it. However I have heard that a score of 26 in speaking is required for some courses. I want to pursue PhD in engineering. Is this score of mine going to be enough or do I need to take the test again?

    Hi Sir,
    Actually it is not my recent score, I gave my TOEFL exam in 2010 and I scored 63, I didn’t get Ph.d admission at that time what ever the reasons. Now I moved to usa and my husband is a post doc at lsuhsc. His boss gave me this offer, and I finally came to know that my TOEFL score is less and I have no time. The committee is going take decision by Jan end. I have 18 days left to my exam. This is my last chance b’coz my husband is going to change his visa status to H1b by 2013 mid. At any cost I have to change to f1. I have to score minimum 80.
    I think I am doing doing in listening and reading, I mean not 100% but ok. After listening to ur reading stratagies, I was really impressed, I came to know where I am doing mistakes. I was really scared abt speaking and writing. I was not even trying to practice the speaking and writing b’coz I was really panic of those two sessions. I don’t go out and speak to people here.

    Hi Michael my name is Diego and, recently, I did the TOEFL iBT exam because of I want enroll into a PhD on Netherland. I need a score of 93 at least; however, I got 69 with 22 on reading, 15 on listening, 17 on speaking and 15 on writing. In contrast, my girlfriend obtained 77 with 19 on reading, 23 on listening, 18 on speaking and 17 on writing and she needs 80 and 20 on speaking. We will retake the exam on March 2013. We asked for a preparation course for TOEFL on Tronwell and they said me that this course costs 1.000 dollar, which is so much money!!! . I am wondering if your course can help us to increase my TOEFL score with the purpose of get a 93 and 80 (20 on speaking) score, respectively. I know that I am in a bigger problem than my girlfriend. What do you think?? Do you think that you can help us??

    Thank you very much

  282. Hi Michael ,

    Can you describe to us your daily class schadual ? and do you have live classes ?

    1. Mohammed,

      There are no live classes because I teach students who live in more than 50 countries and in many different time zones. In a nutshell, all of my 530 lessons/practice tests are online as PDF files or videos. And with the exception of the pronunciation, speaking, and writing modules of my course, the vocabulary, grammar, listening, and reading practice tests are automatically scored at my web site.

      On the other hand, either my TOEFL iBT speaking and writing specialist or I will evaluate and comment on your pronunciation pre-tests and your independent and integrated speaking and writing practice tests within about 24 hours after your completing them.

      I am going to give you a free pass for the next 24 hours so you see how my Online TOEFL Course works. During your preview period, do NOT try to complete any practice tests nor should you attempt to join my Voxopop Discussion Group.

      Go to the following web site to preview this course: http://stealth.bettertoeflscores.com/login/index.php

      1. Type in toeflguest1 for your username.
      2. Type in toeflguest1 for your password.
      3. Then, under “My Courses” at the top right of the web page click “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT,” and you will be directed to a new web page.

      Merry Christmas!

      Michael

      1. Hai Michael,

        I tried using that username and password that you have mentioned before. I click the link and tupe toeflguest1 for username and password. It didn’t work up. Any suggestion? Because I’m interested to join your class but I really need to see how your Online TOEFL Course works.
        Thanks in advance,

        – Kiki –

        1. Kiki,

          I have already locked that username for free access. However, to preview my Online TOEFL Course, go to

          http://stealth.bettertoeflscores.com/login/index.php

          1. Type in toeflguest2 for your username.
          2. Type in toeflguest2 for your password.
          3. Then, under “My Courses” at the top right of the web page click “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT,” and you will be directed to a new web page.

          Keep in mind some things as you preview my course. Your pronunciation pre-tests, your speaking practice tests, and your writing practice tests are scored within about 24 hours of your completing them.

          Currently, I have 40 independent and 10 integrated writing practice tests, but I am in the process this month of adding 30 more integrated writing practice tests. In addition, my Online TOEFL Course offers 300 independent speaking practice tests and 20 integrated speaking practice tests. Eventually, I will add more integrated speaking practice tests also.

          To keep the price of my course inexpensive for everyone, my rule is that, while you are subscribed to my Online TOEFL Course, you can complete ONE speaking and ONE writing practice test at my web site each day, and I will make sure your practice tests are scored in a timely manner. Rest assured, whoever scores your practice tests are trained TOEFL iBT specialists who hold at least a MA-TESOL/Linguistics/English Degree from an accredited University in the United States. Therefore, you are in good hands.

          Of course, do NOT complete any practice tests at my web site while you are previewing my course.

          Once you have taken a look at my course, let me know so that I can “lock” that password.

          Happy Holidays!

          Michael

          1. It works!!!! Currently reading Step 1:Super-size Vocabulary.
            Will surely subscribe and sign-up for the online course in January 2013. Many thanks, Michael and have a wonderful holiday season!

            Best,
            Kiki

          2. Kiki,

            I will keep the toeflguest2 username and password active for a few hours today for you, but I will have to lock it by tonight. I suggest you read the introduction to each step so that you have a general idea of how the course works.

            And if you like my course, send someone else a link today. Tell them that the password and username will only be active for a few hours so they will need to log in quick if they want to preview the course.

            Happy Holidays!

            Michael

  283. Ngo,

    The course lasts as long as you need it—usually until you reach your TOEFL goals. I have enough lessons and practice tests to keep you busy for 4 months or so. When you do longer need the course, you simply cancel your subscription at your Pay Pal account. A lot of students like my course because they want to be able to post their speaking and writing practice tests online, and they know that someone will evaluate and comment on those practice tests. If you diligently use my course daily, you can expect about 5-10 points improvement in your TOEFL score each month that you use it.

    If you do not have access to the Internet, do NOT take this course because it is fully online, so not being able to go Online 2-3 hours each day will greatly affect your learning process.

    Merry Christmas!

    I have just looked your blog on toefl online course. I am interested in the course and intend to sign up for “the 7-step system to pass the toefl ibt” course.

    Dear Michael:

    I am one of your students for the TOEFL online course, I have been working in a lot of the lesson, but my priority is WRITING, since the last time I took the TOEFL, my grades were: R 26, L 26, S 27 and W 20!!!! I really need to improve my writing since I need to get 27!!!

    I think my problem is that I don’t concentrate as I need to, and get nervous because of vocabulary, wondering if I am writing a word correctly or not.

    What can you advise me???

    Hi Michael. It looks really worthy course. I have questions related to 7 steps course to pass IBT.

    First, can I start randomly. For example, I do writing, or reading before complete vocabulary?
    Second, related to vocabulary work, Do I have to finish all quizzes like from 1-500 word and get 85% before jumping to next 500 words?

    Third, about Voxopop plug, and speaking exercises, how can I find the questions related to speaking?
    Forth and last, there are 48 lessons on speaking practice, do I have just practice the lessons vocally, or you want to hear my voice at the Voxopop plug?

    Thank you

    yesterday I received an information through my friend in Canada

    know I got 85. That’s why today I am unsubscribing from your service,

  307. Hello Michael,

    I would like to ask you for a tip how to solve a question: “What is the main purpose of the PARAGRAPH?”
    I know how to deal with the simple purpose question, however I do not know how to apply that strategy to the paragraph question.
    Do I have to read the whole paragraph and match it with the given answers or read the answers first and find them in the text?

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Kate

    1. Kate,

      Here are my comments to you:

      Since you are asking me a rhetorical question about the TOEFL, I think you will probably get a very high score on the TOEFL iBT. Being able to read at a rhetorical level is a sure indicator that you are advancing your reading proficiency and your critical thinking.

      Good luck!

      Michael

  308. Hi Michael my name is Paris, im going to retake the TOEFL IBT test in 2 weeks i’ve never tried your course before my actual score is 79 and i need 93 for my prospective school ,so my question is what are the chances of getting that score in 2 weeks?

    Comment on your video: Online TOEFL Course Comments to Sammy: “I prepared a 30-day study guide to help you pass the exam.”

    Today I took TOEFL for the first time, I really don’t know what to expect from the exam, I didn’t find it very hard, however, the reading part kind of scared me, cause I’m not much of a reader or something.

    My first essay had around 175 words, and the final one had around 312.
    I used Longman’s material, It didn’t help at all! because the complete tests provided by longman don’t have anything to do with the actual exam, I feel very worried regarding my score.

  310. Hi I’d like to get an acess to 7step system to pass toefl ibt test as a guest. How do I log in as a guest?

    1. Sam,

      I will open up my course for a few hours today so you can take a look:

      Go to the following web site for Guest Access: http://stealth.bettertoeflscores.com/login/index.php

      1. Type in toeflguest2 for your username.
      2. Type in toeflguest2 for your password.
      3. Then, under “My Courses” at the top right of the web page click “The 7-Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT,” and you will be directed to my course.

      While you are a guest, do NOT attempt to take any practice tests.

      Respectfully,

      Michael Buckhoff

  311. hi Michael

    this is Mansour how are you
    i just want to inform that i reached Step 2 from your amazing course 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT currently in Speak Clearly Lesson 25 after i go to Voxopop Discussion Group specially the pre test to make the record it gives me this message (Oops! There has been an error. Sorry about that. The error has been logged, so we’ll look into it and fix things up) in this case i will jump to Lesson 26 to saving time after they fix the problem i will get back to Lesson 25 to make the record.

    thank you.

    1. Mansour,

      Try using a different browser and see if Voxopop works better that way.

      Thanks,

      Michael

      1. will i tried another browser but unfortunately it was the same no problem until they fix the problem i will jump to the other lessons to save the time currently im in lesson 41
        thank you

        1. Mansour,

          Voxopop is working fine right now. I think it is a problem from your computer. Sometimes browsers crash, and it takes a couple of days for things to correct themselves.

          Meanwhile, send me audio files of your speaking tasks to my E-mail address.

          Thanks,

          Michael

    I took the toefl about a week ago and felt insecure in the speaking section again. I’m not sure if I’ll get the score I need. If I don’t get 105 I plan to take it again in late February.
    Could we work on a plan together? Let me know how you normally work as well as fees.

    I know it sounds like an impossible task to complete, but I do have

Here is my contact information in case you should decide to wire me $105.00: Michael Buckhoff / 13509 Buena Vista Drive / Hesperia, California 92344. Once you wire your payment, E-mail me at mbuckhoff@aol.com the MTCN or pin number that Western Union gave you so that I can receive your payment.

I need to take that test before May, so do you think that I will have chance to prepare myself for that test. I already took toefl test but I had only 1 week to prepare myself for that test so the scores were. Reading 7, listening 16, speaking 23 and writing 11. Can you please write me back.

    Thank you so much, Ana

  317. Hello, I checked your website, and have some much interest in your course.
    I also need to improve my score ASAP but don’t know how to improve more.

    My last score in July was R16 L19 S19 W21 and total was 75.
    My present score this January is R 19 L 15 S 20 W20 and total 74.

    I feel this term’s Toefl became harder but I’m not sure.
    I had studies abroad and had many chances to use English, so somehow I had some confidence to get a better score….. but see…

    I need your help and your comments:)
