2. Information about your Subscription Service with Michael Buckhoff Publishing

It is YOUR responsibility to cancel this TOEFL service at your Pay Pal account when you no longer need to use it. Once you cancel your subscription, you will no longer have access to “The 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT.”

Welcome to my 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT. You are a subscriber to my TOEFL iBT service, which means you will be charged a minimal fee of $38.00 per month until YOU cancel the service. Most users (depending on their English proficiency and TOEFL goals) use my service for 1-4 months. While a subscriber, you can take ONE speaking and ONE writing practice test per day, all the while getting feedback from a TOEFL iBT specialist.

Of course, you will not need to use my service forever, so it is YOUR responsibility to cancel the service before the next payment cycle starts. You will notice that, when you are logged on, your name is displayed along with a date. For example, if you see the name Michael Buckhoff (Payment billing cycle starts on Dec 3, 2011 and continues monthly until YOU cancel.), it means that my first payment of $45.00 for using this TOEFL service starts on Dec 3, 2014. It also means that, to avoid being billed for the next month, I will need to cancel this service by January 3, 2015. If you wish to use the service for the month of January, do nothing. You will be automatically billed.

When you are ready to cancel this TOEFL service, do the following:

Log in to your PayPal account, click “Profile” at the top of the page, click “My Preapproved Payments” in the Financial Information column, click “View the Agreement” next to the merchant agreement you want to cancel, click “Cancel” or “Cancel automatic billing” and follow the instructions.

Or, while logged in to your Pay Pal account, type “How do I cancel a recurring payment?” in the search box to get more detailed instructions on how to cancel your service with Michael Buckhoff Publishing.

Once you cancel the service, your log in, E-mail, and user name at http://www.stealth.bettertoeflscores.com will be automatically deleted, and you will no longer have access.  At a later date, you can rejoin this TOEFL service, and I will create a new user name and password for you.

  1. hi, dear
    I am a pharmacist, I got 66 in toeflibt score reading 14, listening 16, speaking 19, and writing 17 what is the best plane for me to get 93( reading 22, listening 21, speaking 26, and writing 24)

  2. Hi!

    I’m pursuing to get a Alternative Teacher Certification, so I must score 26 in the Speaking part.
    I took the test about a month ago. (19-Reading, 20 points – Speaking, 20- Listening, 15-Writing).
    I have to mention that It was difficult to make the test when others testers were speaking. Well…it’s the first time I took a test like this.

    I will take the test again by July.

  3. Lorely,

    There is no need to complete all of the steps in my Online TOEFL Course. Focus mostly on the writing section by completing independent and integrated writing practice tests. In fact, send the first writing practice test by e-mail so I can give you an overall assessment of your writing. Copy this message I am writing you now to remind me that I will assess your first writing practice test. You may also need to study the grammar part of my course, but first let’s see what kinds of problems you are having, and then I can tell you where to spend most of your time.

    In addition, start completing some independent and integrated speaking practice tests as well by sending me 2-3 speaking responses weekly. I will give you some more direction after I can see what your problems are with speaking so that you know which pronunciation, language use, and topic development issues you are having.

    Congratulations on already having achieved excellent academic English language proficiency, and I will help you improve your speaking and writing more.



  4. Hello Michael,

    I just enrolled in your program. I already took the Toefl exam in January and I got 105 with 30 in listening, 30 in reading, 24 in speaking and 21 in writing without preparation. The fact is that the University I want to integrate requires me to get 25 in writing and 109 overall.
    I must take the Toefl before the end of June.
    Should I complete every steps of your program or should I concentrate myself on my writing weaknesses ?

    Best regards,


  5. Hello,

    I got 76 on August 1, 2015 (R: 22, L: 18, S: 15, W: 21). Moreover, to avoid a decrease in my level I was continuing reviewing TOEFL reading and listening exercises, so I believe I have the same level as before (in reading and listening, at least). Nevertheless, I need to make an improvement because I will require 88 on August/September.

    Could you give me some suggestions or a plan to achieve 88?


  6. Javier,

    I listened to your pronunciation pre-test and commented on that. I also listened to one of your practice tests. Practice, practice, and practice! E-mail me when you have questions about my course.

    Happy Holidays!

  9. Hello sir,

  10. Dear Mr Buckhoff,
    My name is J and I am a therapist who graduated from a foreign country. I passed toefl ibt year 2005 after my nth take. Some three years ago, I tested my English proficiency through retaking the exam and scored very low. It was a frustrating experience. One of the many reasons why I decided to enroll in your course is because I wanted to improve my grammar, sentence construction, articulation, pronunciation, and everything else. At work, whenever I talk and wanted to explain therapy goals to my clients, I couldn’t explain whatever I had in my mind since it takes time for me to think the exact words to say, thus, I feel I’m not so very effective therapist to clients and that doesn’t help my confidence. Besides that, I wanted to move to another state for a better opportunity and one requirement is to pass the toefl ibt. I need 24 for writing, 26 for speaking, 18 for listening, and 21 for reading. Please help. Thanks.

  11. Hi,
    I want to know my best package and strategy of learning because I took the PBT and get 583 points and I want to get 100 on the the Toefl IBT I will take on July 11.
