Preparation for TOEFL

Prepare

TOEFL test is not a test of how well you know English, it is a test of how well you know TOEFL.

Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is a standardized test to measure the English language ability of non-native speakers wishing to enroll in English-speaking universities. It is accepted by most academic institutions globally, including the top universities in the world.

The TOEFL test is a barrier that stands between you and your future dream university. It tests for specific language skills used in the academic environment which can differ to a great extent from what we consider ordinary, every day English.

Knowing what to expect in an unfamiliar environment is the first step to success. A well-structured, detailed and comprehensive preparation will go far in helping you get the tools and skills you need to overcome this challenge and move on with your life.

 

Improving your skills

Everything can be learned – and TOEFL skills are no exception.

 

Successful preparation for the TOEFL test consists of building up your core strengths and working on your weaknesses in order to be ready for both the test and the academic life that awaits you tomorrow.

The 4-hour long test consists of four different sections – Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing. A successful preparation will take you through each of these sections, taking care to teach you the essential skills and ways of looking at problems so that you may solve them successfully.

You will learn how to structure your answers, what details to pay attention to, how to practice on your own at home, how to take smart notes, how to improve your essay writing, among other skills. You will also learn tricks and tips I have learned over the years to give you that extra edge you need to get the score you desire.

The lessons

Every lessons is tailored for you specifically, according to your abilities and goals.

The lessons are structured in a 90-minute format, with each one taking you through one or more test sections. All lessons are tailored towards your personal and academic goals  and take into account your strengths and weaknesses, with the ultimate goal being that the you become more than capable of tackling all four sections of the test.

The lessons are either held in person in Belgrade or online through Skype. I usually work with individuals, but groups of up to three people are welcome as well. I am more than happy to say over 90% of my former students have achieved their goals and have been admitted to their preferred university program, based on their TOEFL results.

Student Experiences

Despite my high proficiency and years of living in an English-speaking country, I doubt I would achieve the high results I had without taking classes with Stefan. The classes always went very well and in a relaxed atmosphere.

Branko high-scored with 104 after only a few classes, with an amazing 28 in Speaking and 26 in Listening!

Branko, 23, Architecture student

Even though I speak English rather well, I felt stressed about taking my TOEFL exam. I reached out to Stefan to help me achieve the best results possible. We quickly realized that there is room for improvement in the writing and speaking, and spent most of the classes focusing on those sections. He helped me gain confidence while speaking, taught me to better formulate my answers and gave me important writing strategies. Stefan is a very positive person, a skilled teacher and a vital part of my TOEFL success story. My TOEFL score was 109 – Writing 25, Speaking 24, Reading and Listening 30 Thanks Stefan!
