News & Announcements:

January, 2017  --  Come join our new community on VK (the Russian social networking site).  We will be helping each other in English, so this is for all TOEFL test-takers, not just Russian speakers.

https://vk.com/club137640912

December, 2012  --  ETS has now put out a companion book to its "Official Guide to the TOEFL Test."  This new book, titled "Official TOEFL iBT Tests with Audio -- Volume I" contains five authentic tests that have been retired by ETS.  Therefore, between these two books, a TOEFL student will now have a total of 8 tests worth of material.  The links can be found on the "What you need..." page of this site.

October, 2010  --  I have begun helping students with the writing section of the GRE (Graduate Records Exam), which is required for most graduate programs.  If you or a friend needs feedback and/or live assistance with your issue and/or argument essays for the GRE, please let me know.

October, 2009  --  I have just created a YouTube  account, which you are welcome to visit. I will be posting my own video tips as well as welcoming TOEFL students to submit their own videos.  You can record yourself for 45 or 60 seconds, answering a TOEFL speaking question, or talk about your experiences with the TOEFL exam.  Here's the link:  http://www.youtube.com/user/TOEFLprofessorCOREY

May, 2009  --  Because of the increase in demand by students, I will start lessons at 8:00 AM (Pacific time) rather than 9:00 AM, Monday through Friday (weekend lessons will still begin at 9:00 AM).  This will provide more flexibility to students when scheduling lessons.  However, the maximum lessons for one day will remain at 7 for now.

April, 2009  --  Check out the free sessions being offered on the TEACHER JAMES site --  http://teacherjames.com/studyhall2.php?id=1.  Each week they will release one new class, and then on Saturday I will be present during "office hours" (between 9:00 AM and 10:00 AM Pacific time).  I hope to meet you then!

August 27, 2008 -- I have digital materials now for both the Paper-based TOEFL (PBT) and the Test of Spoken English (TSE), so I can coach students in either of those two tests in addition to the iBT.

April 20, 2008 -- Because of the popularity of the online classes, it has become necessary to create a new policy, which I will call "MAX-3."  Since I am now teaching as many online classes and lessons as is possible, I will have to limit the amount of lessons I can schedule for any new student to a maximum of three (3) per week in order to be fair and allow for everyone to receive lessons.  This policy will apply only to NEW students and not to those who have already purchased and scheduled lessons.  If a student needs to "cram" for an upcoming exam and needs more than three lessons in a week, I will be offering a special package on the "Shop Now" page called the "Intensive One Week Special" which will allow for up to seven hours of lessons on any given calendar week (Monday through Sunday) for a flat rate (currently $250).

September 1, 2007 -- We are officially announcing the partnership between teacherjames.com and myself to offer a 4-week comprehensive iBT class online.  Check out my new "Online Group Classes" page to learn more.

August 13, 2007 -- I'm officially introducing the "Referral Reward" system.  If you are a current student and you tell one of your friends, classmates, or colleagues about my site, you could be eligible for a reward yourself.  For each new student whom you refer to me (who signs up for a minimum of 5 hours), I will credit YOUR ACCOUNT with one free hour of private lessons to show my gratitude!  (If you have already completed all of your lessons and taken the TOEFL® test, but you still refer a new student to me, I will be happy to credit him/her with one free hour OR send you $25 in credit through PayPal if you have an account there).
