“I have been taking the Toefl Test for two years.  I took the test a total of 6 times.  I live in the US since 1999, I thought my English was good enough to study by myself.  I got so frustrated, I could not pass the 26 speaking score.  I always got 23 or 24.  Finally, I decided to take Josh McPherson’s online tutorial classes.  I had nothing to lose, I actually was ready to quit.   I took the test after my six sessions…I got shocked with my score, I went from 23 to 27!…it worked like magic.   Josh is awesome!” Ursula Connell


I’m an occupational therapist from Quebec and your advice was really helpful. I scored a 113 with a 26 on the speaking!
