Hi Michael,
How are you???
My name is Mariana. I took a TOEFL test last year and I got the score 78. I needed 79 to apply for MBA.
I tried to study own my on for almost half year. I had less than one month when I found your webside, even though I had studied your lessons for just one month they helped me a lot. I took the TOEFL test one more time last March 27th and I got the score 93. 🙂
Thank you so much for you help! Your lessons were really helpful for me!

I wish the best to you! God bless you!

Hi Michael,

Today, I received my TOEFL score. My overall score is 100/120. The break up is as follows:

Reading: 22/30

Listening: 25/30

Speaking: 26/30

Writing : 27/30

I want to thank you for helping me. I liked your STEALTH series. I liked your passion about teaching and you want everyone to succeed. I did not have much time to prepare. I was nervous but after watching your lectures, I was confident that I would do fine.

In the end, I want to tell you that you should be proud of yourself that what an incredible teacher you are. I am also a teacher but I teach Microsurgery which is little bit different from English and I commend the efforts you put in your students(including me) with continuous guidance through your newsletters and videos.
Please feel free to contact me for any questions and correct this letter.
Take care,
Syed Gillani, MD

Michael,

I can say that it’s very important to organize your time efficiently to reach your target score.
my first toefl was 72 and after 3 months I was able to score 84.
Therefore I think it’s important to have strategy in your study, by the way I want to thank you Mr Michael your tips were very helpful to me especially in speaking section because I scored 23.

  1. how about the listening part which im supposed to integrat with the reading ?!
    the problem is , i dont know where is my weakness points !
    once you finish your toefl test , two weeks after you get your score plus general description about your score , consequently , i still dont know where is my faults !!

  2. because first i was thinking that you are talking about Reading section
    and then i realized that the title is wrong , or maybe you meant the reading in the writing section “integrated”

  3. thank you sir for your videos , i think you have to change the title so the students not get confused.
    the title should be like this:
    INTEGRATED WRITING SECTION – AVOIDING TRAP or FINDING CONTROLING IDEAS.
    as i understand from you that , we should look for rhetorical cues and make them as our thesis and support them by examples and details ?!!
    i got 21/30 in writing section , and i need to reach at least 25 in each part of the ibt test ..
    thank you
