Who Will Check Your Essay?

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

  • I’ve been helping students prepare for the TOEFL for about a decade, and in that time I have read more than 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 dental 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 in Canada. 
  • I have received TOEFL teacher training from ETS, the creators of the TOEFL.  I update this trainingevery year.  You can see my ETS certificates from April 2019,  December 2019November 2020, January 2021, and June 2022
  • 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 as a researcher and textbook writer (TOEFL & TOEIC) for Hackers Education Group, one of the largest publishers of TOEFL books in Asia.
  • My YouTube Channel, Test Resources, has more than 73,000 subscribers. 

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.

August 2022


Michael provides the right advice right away. His resources, templates, and detailed instructions helped me to write a nice essay within the time limit. I got a 28 in writing and 113 in total which is the best score I’ve gotten so far. Thanks so much Michael for your help!

-H, Korea

I have good news! My last TOEFL writing score was 26. That’s my best score so far!

-H.K, Japan

Great news! I just passed the test and got 25 in writing! I like how you quickly identified the key problem in my writing which was hurting my score the most. Once I became aware and careful about that, I saw the results.


Thanks to your support, I achieved 104 (R:29, L:29, S:22, W:24) points on the TOEFL. Thank you for your advice on my practice essays!

-S.M., Japan

I just wanted to let you know that my writing score increased from 21 to 25 with your help. Although I couldn’t get your speaking evaluation, I watched all videos and helped me a lot. My speaking went from 20 to 24.  Thank you very much!! I am very grateful for all your help. 


I got 28 points in the writing section. My total score was 109 (28/30/23/28). My score dramatically improved thanks to Michael’s essay evaluations. I am convinced that following Michael’s strategy is the best way to improve your TOEFL score.


September 2022


I am honored to announce that I received my dream score on the TOEFL. I got 119 on the test (29 on the speaking section). I would like to thank you for the tips you have provided on your channel. I used your template for both tasks of the writing section and scored 30 out of 30. Moreover, your collection of sample essays was a valuable resource to improve my essays and arguments. Initially, I could barely write 300 words for the independent task of the writing part, but thanks to your sample essays, I was able to write 440 words on the test day (310 words for the dependent task).

-A.I., Iran

On September 10 I took my test and I  got my required score for the NABP. Thanks a lot for your help. Finally this nightmare is over. Once again, thank you. 

-A.K, Pharmacist

I would like to let you know that I got 104(W30,L28,S22,W24)on Sep 16, so I achieved my goal! I genuinely appreciate your help. My writing skills improved thanks to your dedication, which has been useful for not only TOEFL but also for my daily work.

-Y.S, Japan

I just wanted to update you on my S and W scores: 30 and 28! I also got 117 total 🙂  Thank you so much for your help with writing. Thanks to you, I was able to get back on track with my writing score! 

-C.K, Korea

I am writing this email to thank you for your helpful materials. Thanks to your essay evaluation, sample essays, templates, and grammar tips, I was able to increase my TOEFL writing score from 20 to 28 in a month!
