This is Michael Buckhoff, founder and materials writer for Better TOEFL Scores. Below I have posted a TOEFL or ESL related video to help you to improve your English proficiency. Enjoy!

www.bettertoeflscores.com Michael Buckhoff, founder of the 7 Step System to Pass the TOEFL iBT, answers a question from a visitor to his TOEFL Blog “Hi michael, I think I have found the right place finally. I am really struggling in the reading and the listening skills, I have already taken the toefl test 5 times now and my scores in the reading and the listening are always 11-14 however, the writing and the speaking skills are not as bad as reading and listening 17-19. I really need your help to get at least 80 to get my scholarship. I am waiting for your response. thanks”

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


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.

  3. Hello Michael,
    My name is Elena /Helen/ , I will sit TOEFL September, but I am scared. My teacher told me that I need more and more and he always push me with a lot of pressure, he says that Im not ready and etc. Maybe this kill my enthusiasm and knowledge. Although I know English almost perfectly and my level is C1 I still dont believe in myself. I definately need advice or a talk, how to deal with this, and how not to pay attention to the rude comments from my teacher’s side? Thank you in advance, my email is earth_angel_666@abv.bg just in case.
