My Favorite Study Plan for “Stuck” TOEFL Scores

Since 2010, I have guided stressed-out pharmacists, physical therapists, nurses and other ambitious students to develop the native-speaker-like English that unlocks advanced scores on TOEFL iBT. 

I only recommend studying all 4 sections of TOEFL iBT at the end of a training program with me — not at the beginning. When you’re new to studying for TOEFL (OR if you’ve been studying but you didn’t see the results that you want), then you need to change how you use your time. Over many years, I developed the study plan that you will see in the video below. 

In the video below, I take notes on the handout. I encourage you to either print it or handwrite the diagram in your notebook. With it, you can watch and take notes. 

After you finish watching and taking notes, you can predict what I would say is the most logical next step for you to study. 

You can see my pricing for e-courses and bundles by clicking the pictures below and exploring.

"Ok but must I follow that plan?"

Statistically, the most likely answer is yes. 

There are students who easily score 26 and higher on Speaking but struggle to get Reading or Listening 23 — but those kinds of students are a statistical minority. How rare? Usually only 3% of my students (or 1 in 30 students) in my experience. 

"... but we are going to talk about MY situation, right, Jaime?"

Sure! If you are interested in The Partnership, my all-inclusive option, then I’ll do a free Guidance Session and Feedback on your Speaking. During our that complimentary consultation, I’ll look at your Score History with TOEFL and ask you a bunch of questions about your situation. 

You’ll find the directions for scheduling that at the bottom of the page that describes The Partnership.
