TOEFL

I helped many students in Russia to prepare for the TOEFL. I know the requirements for the test and usually focus my work on improving the skills in grammar which are necessary for writing and speaking. Also, I work on the structure of the sentences and essays for writing part (which most students find difficult to learn by themselves) and improving speaking skills as during the test participants have very limited time to answer the questions promptly.

My tutoring experience helped and I believe still can help many students to pass TOEFL successfully.
