And, finally, I have updated our guide to the independent TOEFL essay. This version reflects everything I have learned over the past 14 months about writing solid essays and about which strategies are easiest for students to grasp. Next, I plan to update all of my videos about the speaking section. Stay tuned!

I’m happy to report that I have finally finished the 2017 edition of my guide to the integrated TOEFL essay. While the question itself hasn’t really changed since last year, I have learned a lot more about writing good essays and about which strategies work best for my students. I’ve tried to include all of those things in this new video. I hope you like it!
I will be working on new versions of all of the videos in my channel, so stay tuned.
Well, this is an old video that I made a few months ago, but I forgot to post it here on the blog.
The video demonstrates how to structure an integrated essay using the templates included on my site that I’ve been perfecting and modifying over the past few years. It uses an example from the “Official Guide” to walk students through the process of crafting an excellent introduction and three good body paragraphs.
Check it out! The method works. Really!
I’ve uploaded a new video! Finally!
This one is all about how to write an independent essay that will score more than twenty-five points. It is similar to my earlier video, but includes slightly more complex strategies for advanced students.
Let me know what you think.
