Writing Should be the Easiest Part of the TOEFL® . But…

Many students take the TOEFL again and again to get the writing score they need. This is horrible because the writing section should be the easiest part of the TOEFL for most students.  The problem is that most students don’t get sufficient feedback when they practice for the test.

Who Will Check Your Essay?

I will! My name is Michael Goodine, and I am the founder of TOEFL Resources.  I personally check every essay.  Here’s a bit of information about me:

  • I’ve been helping students prepare for the TOEFL for the past ten years, and in that time I have read about twenty-five thousand TOEFL essays from students.  I know what works, and I know what doesn’t work.  My students have entered Ivy League business schools, have qualified for pharmacy and detail licenses and have gained admission to undergraduate programs all over the world.  I work with all kinds of people!
  • I hold a degree in English Literature from beautiful Dalhousie University.
  • I have received TOEFL teacher training direct from ETS, the creators of the TOEFL.  I update this training several times every year.  You can see my ETS certificates from April 2019,  December 2019, and November 2020.
  • I am obsessed with TOEFL writing, and have written several research articles about how the test is scored.  Check out my detailed study of the e-rater software  and an update from 2020.
  • I worked a researcher and textbook writer (TOEFL & TOEIC) for Hackers Education Group, one of the largest publishers of TOEFL textbooks in Asia.
  • Note that TOEFL is a registered trademark of ETS. This product is not endorsed or approved by ETS.

I like to think I’m an expert when it comes to the TOEFL writing section.  I want to use that expertise to help you reach your goals.

Thanks a lot Michael. You might not know this, but you have helped a whole lot of people. Your videos are amazing and your templates helped me greatly. Especially since I studied alone and have no experience. I just received my score (101). I am immensely grateful. You are sublime.
