Feeling nervous or overwhelmed by the thought of taking the TOEFL iBT exam? The problem at this point is that you're scoring too low on practice exams to be admitted into your preferred college or university. You struggle with analyzing academic texts and writing stellar academic essays. You have difficulty with active listening skills, effective note-taking, and understanding varied accents. Oftentimes, you lack confidence and feel pressured to think quickly when speaking in English, resulting in lots of grammar and pronunciation mistakes. Overall, you simply don't know how to best prepare for the questions on your upcoming TOEFL iBT test.

What scares you most is the fear that you'll get rejected from your dream university due to a low TOEFL score. Without your desired TOEFL score, you will be unable to further your education in the USA and reach your future career goals. You fear that ultimately you will not be successful in achieving your dreams and becoming your best self.

Rest assured, you are not alone!

With my help and guidance, you will master the four aptitudes of reading, listening, writing, and speaking needed to ace the TOEFL exam. You will learn useful listening and test-taking skills. You will improve your academic writing, and gain confidence when speaking in English.

Ultimately, you will be prepared to succeed on the TOEFL exam and gain admission to your preferred universities in the USA!

About Catherine H.

Hi there! My name is Catherine, and I help ambitious ESL students who want to study abroad in the USA get accepted into their dream universities by preparing them to achieve mastery on the TOEFL iBT.

I have my Bachelors Degree in Anthropology, and am almost finished with my Masters in International Education Leadership. In 2018, I earned my TEFL Certificate and began teaching English as a Second Language in the USA and then Taiwan. My passion is in helping students who want to study abroad in the USA, which is why I became TOEFL teaching certified to help my high-intermediate and advanced ESL students pass this important entrance examination!
