Achieve The Score You Want With TOEFL Tutoring

Dedicated Private TOEFL Tutoring Online

The dedicated professionals that Varsity Tutors finds for students are carefully vetted through interviews, academic background checks, and multiple tutoring simulations using different student scenarios. Potential tutors who make it through the rigorous process are some of the best tutors around.

Some of the characteristics and skills that are carefully screened during this process include:

  • The ability to identify areas of struggle
  • Communication and teaching skills
  • Adaptability
  • Overall personality
  • Personal TOEFL performance
  • Expertise and knowledge in all sections: Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing
With Varsity Tutors, you also get access to the exclusive Live Learning Platform, an online learning resource that allows you to attend online courses face-to-face with a skilled instructor. The platform also has interactive study guides and practice exams.

Boost Your TOEFL Score

A higher score on the TOEFL means that you have a strong understanding of English and can speak, write, read, and listen to the language at a university level. It isn't always easy getting to this level of knowledge, which is why working with a TOEFL tutor can benefit you.

Private TOEFL tutoring can be focused on any areas that you are having difficulty with, including the ability to give adequate oral responses to questions. This highly focused method of learning allows you to skip over areas that you have already mastered to focus on boosting your scores in your weaker areas.

Best Ways To Prep For the TOEFL

One of the best ways to prepare for the TOEFL is with a TOEFL tutor because you get interactive, personalized attention that isn't available when you study alone or use pre-recorded lectures and study guides. During a short first meeting, your tutor will get to know you and your preferred method of learning.

For example, if you are a visual learner, they can incorporate flashcards or diagrams to help you with vocabulary words. Personalized lessons help students focus their time and energy on the areas that they need the most work. Our interactive platform allows you to get your questions answered immediately with the use of Instant Tutoring. Simply log on and get connected with a skilled professional instantly.

How much does a TOEFL tutor cost?

A common question we see is, "How much will private TOEFL tutoring cost me?" We often answer this by encouraging you to give us a call to get a customized free quote. Many factors go into determining the price of private tutoring or taking a TOEFL class.

For instance, if you need to meet with your instructor a few times a week, you will pay a different amount than working with your mentor once a week. The best way to know the exact amount you will pay is to reach out to a professional Educational Director by calling the number on our site or clicking "Get Started" above.

How do I choose a TOEFL tutor?

Choosing the best tutor can be a complicated process when you are doing it alone. We can help.

We use advanced tutor matching to find the mentor who would best suit your specific learning needs. For example, if you are easily distracted, we can match you with someone with a lot of experience in using multiple techniques to keep students interested and engaged in the material. We make sure tutors are results-driven and take an adaptive approach to education, so you can feel at ease knowing you are being matched with the best tutors in the field.

Are TOEFL tutors worth it?

Yes, working with a TOEFL tutor is a worthwhile investment. Private tutoring can not only teach you TOEFL subjects, but it can also help you learn valuable study and time management skills that you can use in your future studies.

Tutoring can help you learn more information than you would by studying alone; it could also lead to a better paying job when potential employers observe your ability to speak, read, and write a second language fluently. And, with the Live Learning Platform, you have access to numerous extra study resources and the ability to go back and re-watch any of your previous sessions if you need a refresher. Reach out today to get started.

How can a tutor help you master the TOEFL?

Typically taken by non-native English speakers, the TOEFL exam is a test of proficiency in the English language. For those whose first language is not English, there are a large number of institutions that require TOEFL score reports. Many colleges, universities, and employers may ask for your TOEFL scores as well when you apply for a job. Scoring your absolute highest on the exam can greatly improve your likelihood of being admitted to your top-rated program or being offered a position with your preferred employer.

The TOEFL exam asks test-takers to perform a wide variety of tasks, such as writing essays based on a given topic, reading excerpts of academic texts, listening to a recording in English, and stating an opinion on a particular matter using spoken English. Learning a new language can be difficult enough, and for many students, an exam such as the TOEFL presents multiple challenges, including attaining a sufficient command of the English language and developing a familiarity with the intricacies of the standardized exam format.

Online TOEFL Tutoring review by Manutej
We worked on the student's upcoming test which involves writing, reading, listening, and speaking. We did a brief review on each of these topics by doing practice. I gave him advice on how to approach and handle each of these sections appropriately to maximize his score.

Online TOEFL Tutoring review by Walter
Most of the time spent was getting the student set up on the computer to take practice tests and locating where he needed the most work. All of the sessions until this Saturday's test will be spent on his weak areas.

Online TOEFL Tutoring review by Abbi
Since we went over writing and reading comprehension last time, we did some listening and speaking exercises. She did well and on the last listening exercise. I recommended she first do the easy questions/ones she could recall quickest and found that when she did that she built her confidence and got all the questions right. I think she will continue to improve.

Online TOEFL Tutoring review by Ryan
Today was an introductory session with this student. We worked almost entirely out of her TOEFL textbook with reading comprehension exercises. We worked on vocabulary building (I had her write down the definitions of at least eight unfamiliar words) as part of that. I gave her some tips about TOEFL reading (i.e. inferring meaning of words from their context) and told her a bit about the speaking portion of the TOEFL. Her reading ability is fairly strong and she got most of the answers correct without hesitation. She doesn't have a lot of time to prepare of the test but I feel confident. To end the session I gave her a homework assignment of reading another TOEFL reading exercise from her book. By her next session I will have my own copy of the TOEFL book.

Online TOEFL Tutoring review by April
Today I had the pleasure of meeting the student. We discussed our plan for her to excel and pass the exam. I assisted her in setting up a study calendar, to help her with organization and time management. The next tutor session we will work on reading/listening practice questions and discuss her study schedule.

Online TOEFL Tutoring review by Adam
Began work on TOEFL, using a study guide. Today was spent with an overview of the entire test and an in depth look at the reading section. The student finds TOEFL questions more manageable than similar SAT questions, mostly due to the vocabulary difficulty.
