Live Group Classes with Jaime Miller

Live Zoom Classes for Advanced Scores

Meet with Jaime Miller and ambitious students
live, every week to discuss score-maximizing TOEFL iBT Speaking or Writing responses.

The recommended deadline to register is Monday October 11 (so you have time to prepare).


Who is this for?

If your career is waiting until you get advanced scores on TOEFL iBT (especially W24+ or S26+), and if you need to study more productively on a weekly basis, then you’re invited to register for live classes with Jaime Miller. Below, you will see a schedule for Writing classes, and then another schedule for Speaking classes.

Students in class tend to be foreign-trained pharmacists, physical therapists or nurses. A smaller number of students are applying for competitive educational programs (example: LLM, PhD, or Masters degrees).


How is this different?

This isn’t like a class you might have taken for TOEFL iBT at your local library… and this definitely is not like studying for TOEFL with a family friend. The majority of Jaime’s students are pharmacists, physical therapists, nurses and ambitious applicants for competitive university programs (like LLM’s, MBA’s or PhD’s).

All sessions are guided by Jaime Miller, who has focused on how to escape TOEFL-hell since 2010. She’s an American. She’s taken the TOEFL iBT. She’s watched countless people succeed whose scores seemed hopeless. Also, she was named “Best Personalized Instruction” by Intelligent Magazine in their 2021 article for Best TOEFL Prep Classes.

If you succeeded in university because you had a structured plan, then you need to get out of the chaos of YouTube with all its conflicting advice — and start following a structured approach to getting your TOEFL iBT scores.

 


What is the prerequisite / course material?

In university, you had to buy certain textbooks for various classes. If you didn’t read the chapters assigned by your professor, you could not knowledgably participate in class discussions or submit certain assignments.

This is similar, but in this case, the textbooks are e-courses. If you need an improvement in all 4 sections of TOEFL, then you should buy access to all 4 of the “Understand How to…” e-courses in Step 2. However, if you only need to improve your Speaking, you can skip the Reading/Listening and Writing material.

The preparation material are my e-courses:  Understand How to Get S26 and W24.

 


When and Where?

To make sure you get opportunities for feedback, you and up to 10 other students will meet live in a Zoom room with Jaime Miller.

The benefit of meeting once per week is that you can organize your schedule to prepare, practice and fully benefit between sessions. As a result, you can be prepared with your questions and activities to show and get feedback on.

You need 10-15 hours per week to attend classes and do the preparation activities.

Does your schedule conflict?

The recordings of each class will be available to watch online for 1 week.

However, if you do not attend, you’ll miss opportunities to participate. In order to receive feedback on your assignments, you must attend classes. As a rule, Jaime does not give feedback on activities outside of class, so if you cannot attend, you will not be able to submit your activity via email  and get feedback.

 

Feedback From Real, Past Students:

 

If one of your main goals is to finish with TOEFL as soon as possible, you need to prioritize attending these Monday classes.

Talk to your boss. Talk to your family. Figure out what needs to change so that you can attend live.

 


What schedule leads to the biggest improvement?

About 6 days before each class, you’ll get a reminder email that explains how to prepare. You should finish watching the associated lectures (which will take about 5 hours) within a couple of days. That way, you can spend 3-4 hours on the 2-3 days before a class practicing and preparing your assignment to show in class and get feedback on.

On the day of the class, at the right time, you’ll log into the Zoom room. During our live class time, you’ll be able to use your microphone and webcam to communicate with Jaime and other students.

Note:  You need to join Zoom via a computer. During classes, Jaime will often share her screen so that everyone can look at an assignment for TOEFL iBT Speaking or Writing.  You want to attend class through a computer with a large screen because you will struggle to see if you’re looking at a phone or tablet screen.

 


The Benefits of Attending Live Time with Jaime Miller:

  • You will be motivated to re-watch and keep absorbing the valuable information in the video recordings… at whatever schedule is the most convenient for you (whether that’s all in one day, or broken up over a whole week)
  • Each class, we’ll focus directly on feedback, and waste no time getting to the important stuff.
  • You will have multiple chances to share your activities for TOEFL with me in the group, and get my feedback and suggestions about how to keep improving.
