Thank you so much for helping me out with my TOEFL exam. My scores are: R-22, L-28, Speaking-27, W-28. Total of 105/120. Toefl exam last Jan 31. This is my first attempt and enrolling in your class is very crucial for making me ace my exam. I can finally move along with my next step in getting my licensure for me to work in USA. More power and God bless you always.
I still can't believe my scores when I saw it..Wow! Thank you so much.. I will definitely recommend you to my friends..

Hi This is Juliana or zjuliana5 on the Toefl Speaking Mentor website. I just got my score back and I got 26 on speaking section for a total of 113. I really want to thank you Jason for the Speaking Mentor service you provided. I registered for that service only FOUR days before the actual test and it really helped me to improve my speaking by knowing what the test markers really want! Those video tutorials are especially helpful and there are many practice questions available! I wish I have registered for it earlier or came across it earlier so that I would have more time to prepare for it. For everyone, I really recommend the Speaking Mentor service. It is very insightful and saves you a lot of time by knowing the right formulas for the speaking section. If I did not find out about the Speaking Mentor before my test, I'm sure that I won't be able to have that score. Thanks a lot Jason and thanks you so much for providing the Speaking Mentor service!

Hi Jason! My name is Sheryl. I am a Physical Therapist from the Philippines. I took the TOEFL IBT for the first time last 21 November 2009. I have to get a composite score of 63 for Reading, Writing and Listening and 26 for Speaking to pass the visa screen. After two weeks, the results were released today. I got a composite score of 78 and 27 for Speaking! I am so happy! I was really anxious about the Speaking Section, but your tips and tricks were really helpful and also the recordings from Voxopop. I promised myself to thank you if I pass the exam. This website really helped me a lot. Again, thank you so much!

Hi Jason, I just got my toefl-ibt result today, and I'm very happy to inform you that finally, I received the much coveted score of 26 on the speaking section! This was my second take, and although I got a quite high score (111) on my first take, I only had 23 on the speaking part which was not enough for a Physical Therapist applying to take the licensure exam here in the U.S. I didn't know you yet when I took my first Toefl and had a false sense of confidence that time that I could pass the exam since I was already working here in the U.S for about 8 months. But I found out the hard way that getting a high score on the speaking section does not solely rely on your working english skill. You had to have formulas and structure like what you have been teaching your toefl speaking mentor members. I wish I have known you before I took my first toefl, but nevertheless, Thank you so much for your help and website. I actually thank God for knowing you after a few days of subscribing to your program and told myself that I would write a testimonial once I get 26 on the speaking section. Getting a 26 on the speaking section for a foreign graduate PT like me is really an ardous task since it is almost 87% and based on the study released by the ETS, of all those who took the toefl-ibt for professional license purposes, the mean score was only 21, so I really recommend to my fellow PT's who will take the toefl to be well-prepared for it and seek your help. It really works once you put to heart what Jason teaches. Again, a heartfelt Thank you Jason!

Hi Jason! I just got my TOEFL scores! I got 28 in the speaking section and a total of 115!!
Your tips and tricks were very helpful! I was really worried about the speaking section, but thanks to your advice I became more confident. Your comments on our recordings were very useful to me, because they gave me the opportunity to understand the flaws in our answers and identify my mistakes. Therefore, I could focus on these aspects and try to give more accurate answers. I have recommended your website to all my friends, it is outstanding! Thank you very much for the help! :)

Hi Jason, this is Rosemary, one of the first set of people who subscribed to your Toefl mentor programme. My name in this forum is RANYANWU if you can remember. I took toefl on the 10th of October, and the result was just released today. I made 26 in Speaking. Since I met your website, I knew that I have found an answer to toefl. I had written toefl severally without hope or even knowing what the raters wanted. Thanks a lot Jason. My family and I are very grateful. This is a huge success to me in the ladder of my professional career as a pharmacists here in the U.S. After knowing your website, I incorporated your template in my practice and also used it in the exam. I made good in familiar topic/ fair in campus situation /good in academic based content. I am particularly happy making good in Quest 4& 6 which are the ones I used to be nervous about. It really showed that your templete for integrating in Q4 really works. Thanks a thousand time. I am sure that intending toeflers should not hesitate to consult your site for toefl preparation. Bye.

Hi there! I just found out I got 29 in speaking. I can't believe it. Thank you Jason. Your tips were very useful. Those three full speaking tests that were available on speaking mentor were very important for my success. I realized that passing the Toefl has nothing to do with language skills. The secret is to know exactly how the Toefl is set up and what it requires. So, more tests you can take more chances you have to pass the toefl.

Got the latest result of my TOEFL IBT last month. Finally, I got the passing score of 26 in speaking, 25 in writing and the total score of 89 which is the passing score for my credentialing. Thanks a lot to my mentor Jason who has guided me from the very start I joined the forum and learn from his tutorials both in speaking and writing task. It was a dream come true to pass the elusive score of TOEFL. Again, a million thanks!
Venus - USA
Thank you, Jason!!! I just checked my new Toefl score, I am so excited. It is my fifth time taking toefl and besides three times rescore. Finally I got the 23 speaking score, altough it is not high compare with other students but it is enough for me. Your tips help me a lot, before I always think the speaking score depends on speaking ability and information you could cover, but I found I was wrong. It was really frustrating when last time I got a even lower score 17, because that time I have stayed in America for a while and I almost repeat most of the information in the test. It's so lucky for me to find your website, this time I tried my best to stay calm and speak slowly ,finally I made it. I should know you early, it will save me a lot of time and money. Thank you!

Hello Jason, I want to thank you for your tremendous help! I passed TOEFL (speaking section 27) two weeks ago, it was my second time. Your tips and sample tests were extremely helpful!
Lena - USA
You're doing a wonderful job. I didn't practise from anything else but your site is quite informative rather much more than ETS sampler! In short duration it gave me a clear idea of the pattern & how to answer for TSE. I got my scores yesterday, well...reading & listening were both 29, writing 28 & speaking 26. It's all with your help. Thanks a lot once again!
I am very grateful to jason .this website really helped me with toefl... I got 111 in toefl ibt..and the best part was 28 in writing and 27 in speaking. I owe it totally to u!! am very thankful of having your guidance and have suggested ths website to all my friends. Best wishes,
I AM VERY HAPPY!! Finally I made it! after many times taking the toefl I got the 26 in the speaking part. I am glad that I discovered this web site, and it was the main source to prepare for the speaking and writing parts. Thankyou, Jason for your wonderful Toefl Speaking and Writing Mentor programs. Thankyou also for being with us, students who are willing to have high scores in these two sections. You are an amazing english teacher. For all students, do not give up, try again until you get the score that you need. Practice all the topics in Toefl mentor programs, follow all the tips and you will be OK. Good luck for all of you.
Hi Jason. I took the TOEFL IBT on October 25th for the first time. All I did was self-study & getting tips from 2 great sites - this & another one. Then, I got the following scores: Reading=28, Listening=26, Speaking=27 & Writing=27.
I finally made it!!!! I've got my result yesterday and got the score I needed on speaking. Thank you very much on your techniques and tips! I would definitely say that your tips really helped me. This is the 7th time I've taken this exam and I'd say I've read all TOEFL iBT books available but nothing worked. My writing, reading and listening are always over 25 from the previous exams but my speaking was always 24 as well. Imagine how frustrating is that?! I was on my way of giving up and felt so depressed. Then my co-worker mention your site to me. I subscribed to your speaking mentor 10 days before my scheduled exam and I tried to remember all your outlines and make it a point to follow them. I was more confident and focus during the exam. Although I haven't received the result then, after my exam, I was more confident ever than my 6 previous exam. True enough, I passed (with a speaking score of 26)! Thank you very very much Jason. With this exam finally over, it opened more opportunities for me....

Took the Jason Renshaw's Mentor subscription. It is the best. His grades on my 6 speaking topics on the 3 tests helped a lot to identify my weak areas (which of course was Question type 4)... I just got my result: Reading : 27 Listening: 27 Speaking: 27 Writing : 28 Total 109 Happy because this was what I wanted :-)

Hello Jason- I got my TOEFL scores. I got 28 in the speaking section! Your speaking practice test was very helpful for me. I listened to my responses and your suggestions several times. I think that your advice how to organize the speaking responses helped me a lot. I practiced several speaking tests using your advice before my actual test. During my real test, I used your great tips. I was confident and I knew what to expect from the listening part of the test. Thank you again for your great program! It helps to get good results! Regards,

Hi Jason, I just got my score today and I am so happy! You are my angel, I pass my test! Thank You!
My score for speaking is 27 and my writing is 25. God bless you and Thank you!I bought almost every toefl book that you can imagine. In addition, I paid so many tutors in US and in abroad and attended an english class. However, none of them was able to help me understand what Toefl raters want. I took the test multiple times and I always ended up with a score of 24 in speaking, when I needed 26. I was about to give up, until I learned from a friend about Jason's Toefl Mentor. Jason helped me understand how to answer the speaking. I want to let everyone know that Jason knows what he is doing. The pattern he has to answer the speaking and the writing helped me to realize my dream. He is a very good Toefl teacher. My family and I want to Thank Jason from the bottom of our hearts.
My name is Gloria, I am from Colombia and I am currently living in Miami Fl. I came to this country 3 years ago and since then I've been trying to validate my career as an Occupational Therapist; in order to do so, the first obstacle that I had to face was the TOEFL (I took it 10 times). I did everything to get the 26 score I needed, I bought hundreds of books, took online courses but nothing seemed to work as I expected because my highest score was 23. Only 2 weeks before my 11th TOEFL attempt I found this page and I decided to do the TOEFL Speaking Mentor. After that, and thanks to Jason, I understood that my problem was not my vocabulary, pronunciation, fluency or intonation but my approach to answer the questions. Jason's advice was extensive and thoroughly explained making my answers not only more creative but also conciser. After practicing for a few days following Jason's recommendations, I took the test and I got the score I needed (Speaking 26). Now I am ready to step up to the next phase on the road of my professional life. God Bless you!

Hi Jason, This is lsuryap from NY would like to thank you for the service you are providing for the aspiring students and other professionals who are in need of higher score in TOEFL. My speaking score made me to write this thanking letter. I was in need of 26 in speaking for my licencing exam, for which I have been struggling for last 8 months. Lots of attempts, failures, frustration and pain. While searching on net I found this website and your services and videos, then I tried to follow your tips, surprisingly in only my 2nd attempt ( after following your tips ) I got my score (Speaking 26). Before that I used to get 23/24 in speaking, I applied for rescoring for 6 times but there was no change, I didn't know where I was going wrong. But your tips helped me a lot. I have recomended 2 of my friends to use your services and to follow your tips. And I request all my online friends to follow the tips and use Jason's services. I really appreciate for your help.

Hi Jason, I just let you know that I got 26 in the speaking section (required 24) :) I found the TOEFL speaking mentor website a useful and unique source for practicing the actual exam: example topics, comments and tips are very relevant to the TOEFL speaking part.
Marco - USA
Two weeks ago I saw your lecture. At that moment I was really unsecure about my Speaking skills .
This video helped me so much ! I just followed your advice and structure throughout the entire speaking section and everything went great!! And today I recieved my TOEFL score and it is.... 110!! For my speaking section I even scored a 29!! That means almost perfect!! Thank you very very very very much for these great tips!! Greetings from the Netherlands!!
Hi Jason. My name is Aya, and I'm from Japan living in the US. I've been taking TOEFLiBT since November 2006 and the best score I was able to achieve on the speaking part was 23. (Once I received 24, but after rescoring it went down to 23.) I needed 26 on the speaking part for the Pharmacy License, and after I found this site in June and following your advice, my speaking score went up to 26 on 08/22/2009 test. Until I found your site, I studied using so many different TOEFLiBT study guide books, but none of them were really working for me...a lot of these books are not practical by going way over the one minute speaking limit or not considering what the question is really asking for. Your detailed instruction is reflecting the answers the ETS is actually looking for, and that's why I was finally able to pass this test. 3 years, 15 times later, finally I was able to get these magic numbers. (I wish I found your advice much earlier =)
Thank you so much again, Jason!!!
Aya - Japan/USA
I had already thought about the structure of my answers when I came across your videos. They made me realize that examples are important, an aspect I had completely overlooked.
Thanks to that priceless addition I got 27 in the speaking section and a total of 117. I am sure you are helping a lot of people... :)
Jason's tips are crazy! I heard 'em out on the eve of my toefl.. Mind you, I thought I was going to be jacked in the speaking section.. and i ended up scoring 28 on the speaking! 105 total! Hail English Raven! (=
Jason...... thank you very much, you helped me alot. I followed your instructions and I scored 26 in the speaking and a total score of 105 . you helped me alot in both the speaking and writing sections........I love you man
