Go from below 20 to above 24 in TOEFL speaking and get into your dream university program! 

Becoming an advanced English speaker and using academic English on the TOEFL exam is like climbing a mountain. For every new vocabulary word you learn and are able to pronounce properly, another slippery exception makes you trip and fall.

After taking the TOEFL test already and perhaps not getting the score you need, you can see why so many people in your shoes feel like giving up and turning around halfway up the mountain. 

The good news is that getting a high TOEFL score doesn’t have to be such an uphill struggle anymore.

The problem is, when you watch TOEFL Youtube videos and take other courses with hundreds of students, they don’t focus on your individual needs, strengths, and weaknesses.  You don’t really know what mistakes you’re making and how to improve your speaking and writing skills because nobody has given you personalized attention.

What you need is to practice and activate your knowledge! Because as soon as you begin learning the structure of the writing and speaking responses for TOEFL, you’ll realize you already know enough to start practicing and taking action steps to prepare for this difficult test.

Before I became an English teacher, I was living in New York City searching for a job as a Spanish teacher.  I bombed the interviews (in a bad way), though, and knew I wanted to improve my Spanish.  So, I moved to Spain.

When I arrived in Spain, it was sink or swim. (Or in my case a triathlon).  I ended up getting a placement in Galicia and had to navigate through the waters of Spanish, Galician, and Portuguese.

Pretty quickly, I fell in love with the Galician language and realized – if I wanted to get a job in Spain, I would have to pass some serious language exams. 7+ years later and after many language partners, courses, and private language teachers, I passed the Galician C1 exam and the Spanish DELE C2 exam.  

A Ph.D. (that’s another story), a sweet online teaching gig with the US government and 234 students later, I decided to package my approach into an easy-to-follow course with teacher support for frazzled learner and busy TOEFL takers everywhere. And I’m excited to share it with you!

TOEFL Power-Up Program:

Speaking and Writing Intensive

  • The daily language exercises that are sent to your email inbox daily from the google classroom.  Each assignment has a deadline to submit it by telling you exactly what to practice, so you can finally set aside the textbook and focus on engaging tasks that lead to real progress, really fast.
  • Methodology: We will focus on what is called “student output,” which is the idea of the student actively practicing the language as much as possible rather than passively consuming the language.  We will listen to your responses, transcribe them, and improve them so that you can see what a high-scoring response looks like.  The same is true for writing. We will begin writing essays from the get-go and understanding how to improve the paragraph structure. 
  • Teacher Feedback:  We will be working together on Whatsapp through private messages and in Google docs.  I will be helping you with speaking, pronunciation, intonation, and linking your words so that you sound as fluent and natural as possible.  We will also work with the ETS rubrics and check-lists so that you can see where you fall on the rubric and what areas you need to improve.  
  • Support: You can ask questions, share great resources, and motivate each other through the course.  The group is reduced in size so that the chat doesn’t become flooded with hundreds of annoying, random messages.   Also, you will be given topics to practice in Whatsapp, it will help you make speaking a daily habit. 
  • Monitor your Growth: We will be using some statistics and data from a fantastic website that will show us if we are improving in the areas of: speech rate, vocabulary diversity, pauses, repetition, phrase length, and grammar. The data will give us an idea of how to improve our speaking.

  1. What is included in the daily language tasks? 

Every day, you will be given a speaking task based on a TOEFL speaking prompt or an essay prompt.  We will be working on both the integrated tasks and the independent tasks.  We will break these tasks into smaller, more feasible assignments.  

2. It is too expensive. I can’t afford it. 

It costs more than the big TOEFL company offerings because you’ll be getting more feedback and more support.  Additionally, it is nice to work with a smaller group so that you don’t feel so overwhelmed by large numbers of students.  You’ll have more time to participate and you’ll improve faster. 

3. I am afraid I won’t be motivated. 

You will receive a study planner to help you focus on your goals and stay accountable.

4. How can I pay for it? You can pay by credit card. 

  • 😀 Also, I make it more fun for you by giving your positive comments to motivate you to help you build your confidence when you speak! 

✅ Whatsapp classes are useful for those who have the discipline and motivation to improve their English, but who need a guide to lead them down the correct route. I can also make some audios for you to listen to and practice repeating for pronunciation, which is useful if you need specific vocabulary for your university career.
