Not afraid of Virginia Woolf or math formulas!

I have worked with a number of students on preparing for the TOEFL, as well as for other standardized tests. The TOEFL written and spoken answers to questions require following prescribed formulas and giving very topic-specific responses. As the prep books recommend, it is essential to be sufficiently experienced in English in order to score well on the test. I have worked with students of all ages and levels, from preschool through graduate school. While I have expertise in teaching reading, literature, writing and creative writing, I also have experience in tutoring math subjects. I think ma [more]

For the speaking and writing sections, I focus on creating answer templates, improving pronunciation and organization, and using transitions correctly. [more]

Learn English to succeed at what you really want to do!

TOEFL is a game. Play it to win! Having a good grasp of English is not enough to achieve a high score on the TOEFL. You also need to understand the structure of the test, how it is scored, and what strategies to use to get the best score on each task. I can help you prepare most efficiently and effectively to get the score you need in the TOEFL game. How can I improve my English? It's a good question and one I have been asked hundreds -- if not thousands -- of times. As you probably know by now, there's no one answer, no "magic bullet", and no app to learn English while you sleep (at least not [more]

I strongly emphasize oral skills--speaking--as the essential basic requirement for learning English (or any language), with reading and writing to follow aural-oral comprehension and ... [more]
