We're finally here! Conversation gambits! This is going to be a two-part podcast with lots of fire, so you better prepare yourself. How do you normally start conversations with someone you don't know? Are you limited to subjects? For example, from childhood to about 2012, I was limited to only sports. So, it was extremely difficult to speak to anyo…
 
It was a turbulent month (June). So much good happened, but there were also high-los. One issue I had this month was my expectations and how high they can be sometimes, ultimately fueling disappointment when it doesn't go my way. Well, let's just say I gave away a webinar for free to a student. This particular student had a key to another door. Thi…
 
Here's a follow-up from yesterday's podcast. The Integrated Task, which is far easier than the independent essay to most, is reviewed and he has a number of different phrases within his essay. The goal for any integrated task is to make comparisons, use passive voice, reported speech and especially a wide range of reported statements. So, hear my b…
 
Super grateful to chop up this podcast and give you the full coaching session with one of my previous students who was EXCELLENT at note-taking. So, make sure you get a pen, pencil, and put yourself in an entirely different vantage point of understanding the TOEFL Speaking questions.

This is a MASSIVE one. Understand with every high-sugar food, every complaint, every inhalation of cigarette smoke, and everything you do on a routine basis is charged to live's credit card. And what happens towards the end of life? Or maybe even when you're 30/40/50 years old? You're going to have to start paying back some of that debt, and that d…
 
We're back with a FANTASTIC breakdown of the speaking question 2. Some of you are still confused about how to take reading notes. I've heard a Thai student, who you will hear next month, state conflicting information. In this episode, I break down the reading, and we go really deep in detail about the others. Let's dive into it! Instagram ESL Podca…
 
Today we have an awesome, pre-recorded interview of an AMAZING CEO that gives a tremendous amount of perspective. In the last question about leadership, I was literally in awe about his perspective, and if we had CEOs like this at the heads of the biggest companies and small businesses in the world, we would truly be blessed. Let's dive into these …
 
WOOHOO! Big shout out to the wondrous Liliana, a student who I'm now coaching through TOEFL iTP. She got in contact with me over the weekend and needed help with TOEFL iTP, so I quickly set up a pre-diagnostic coaching session and I coached her through the particulars of grammar. A phenomenal coaching session here! If anyone is interested in course…
 
Boy, how often does this happen? Whether it's some of my coaching students, getting their score before disappearing (and not telling me what their score was); or the language institutes that I've worked for who get what they want (financially) before disappearing. How can you protect yourself from other's agendas? In today's podcast, I'll give you …
 
'It's pretty simple. If the ratings are up, my bosses love me; if they're down, I lose my job!' This reminds me of not only corporate America but most American jobs. If you look at the NFL, if you will the Superbowl one year and have a bad year the next, you could be traded. If you stand for human rights and take a stance, the owners of the team co…
 
Imagine starting your own business, is it better to borrow money from a bank or sell equity? In today's podcast, we talk about the advantages and disadvantages of debt, equity, and a number of other things in regards to borrowing money, personal expenses, and create assets instead of focusing on your income statement. TOEIC Webinar (Listening Part …

I'm grateful that she went through with the coaching and now we're just waiting on her result!

We have a tendency of waiting for people to take action on our dreams and what we want to accomplish. Honestly, here in Thailand, and over the past couple of years, I've always had to wait. It was a guy who promised so many projects and never came through. A company that said "we'll let you know when we're ready" and disappeared in the first week o…

I'm back with the good stuff! Today is the first day that I'm introducing the pre-sale to the reading course, and in doing that, I'm going to review a pretty difficult read down below. These are difficult from the readings I've done before because this is far more advanced, so you better brace yourself for this because it's going to get UGLY. IELTS…
 
When a situation arises in which we have to take action, our imaginative/creative side gets firing. Meaning, when we have to make ends meet or make a decision to act in a dire situation, we have a tendency to always finding our way out. After the situation comes and goes, we look back and say "how was I able to do that?" That's called our creative …
 
Have you ever made quick decisions in hurried situations? What was the result of them? How about in heightened and emotionally charges situations? You're not able to think clearly about it, and the problems that ensue would be even bigger than before. In today's podcast, let's break this down.By Arsenio Buck

Hello to all! Today is a special! One of my students had asked me to do a review video for a mini-test within my course, so here it is! I wanted to share this with everyone to show you all what's available within the course. This was the 4th exercise with 25 questions, and because she got about 8 questions wrong, I break each of them down for her. …
 
We're back with an amazing TOEFL iBT Membership Sneak Peek. In today's episode, I have a wonderful Venezuelan dentist who submitted her Integrated task, and I'm here to help her in putting the structure together. So, because she had received a 17 in her writing, being the lowest of all bands, I was a bit nervous to see her writing. However, after s…

Let this be a dose of self-awareness for a lot of you out there who are probably making the same mistake in regards to your speaking sections. My wonderful student, who I'm coaching, sent me one of her speaking evaluations. Now, because it wasn't up to par, I walk her through the entire process, break it down, show what she said, and gave her a hug…
 
One of my students told me to quickly make a video before her test, so I decided to make a follow-up video breaking down how to use these specific variations in a sentence and how to choose the best answer.

When we look at factors that cause us the most stress, it could be things as little as doing boring, repetitive tasks. On the other hand, being promoted, dealing with large sums of money, being responsible for other people's lives and WAITING FOR PEOPLE can be the most stressful things. In today's podcast, I break down the different factors and you…

There's a fine line between the two. Businesspeople don't have much of an imagination. They often climb the corporate ladder, deal with bureaucracies, and don't make much noise. With entrepreneurs, they have to see what isn't there, and that's the beauty of the imagination. When I had first become a solopreneur, I didn't know how to manage my team …
 
After years of hard work. Not hard work in regards to the physical aspect of what the term may mean, but times when I just wanted to give up. My personal development podcast back in 2016 wasn't excelling whatsoever after 3 years. I created an ESL podcast, and two years later, I got my first online client. During these times, I created a joint podca…
 
When it comes to assessing risks, what do you do? Whether it's everyday risks, such as buying something that you really need but you're hesitant because of the job market. Or perhaps even risks in the stock market? Well, there are ways of getting around it, such as buying a share + an option to hedge against the risk. That way if the price falls, y…
 
I had a WhatsApp message a half-a-year ago and it sounded like an amazing individual who was really interested in coaching. So, we got on a call and here she was, an adorable 22-year-old girl who needed help with her TOEFL iBT. Here's the full coaching segment and how I ran through a number of different questions for her, giving feedback and making…
 
Seriously, when people speak about patience, you have to think of it as baby steps. In an American football analogy, you're not going to constantly hurl the pigskin to the endzone. You need to establish the running game. You need to get others involved, pick up the small yards, and work for the bigger plays. This is what life is and what you need t…
 
Welcome back to another TOEFL iBT Speaking segment! This debut first on IG, so if you're interested in seeing the videos, be sure to follow my IG link down below.

Just went I felt that I was down and out for the count (boxing reference), I literally gave a free class to a student, and little did I know, she had a magical key to someone else. This someone else had an even more magical key....and that person had the key to Eldorado!By Arsenio Buck

So, I had gotten a message stating, "the translator told the committee last year that you were hard-selling and you talked about "products" too much." When I got this message, let alone from someone who has never given a presentation before, 12 months later, I was dumbfounded. I needed to sit down and dissect what was actually said and look at it f…
 
Much of the time, the question of scaling comes down to what you are providing online. What are you adding to the digital marketplace to grow your business? To serve more people? To enable your service and revenue to scale? A lot of structure and scalability tactics come down to what you are doing online. In order to enable your business and revenu…

When I stepped on the gorgeous Bamboo Island which was part of the Krabi Islands tour, I didn't care about photos, cameras, phones, or anything. I literally wanted to sit down on the beach, dig my feet in the most gorgeous sand in the world, and watch those turquoise waters rush over me. This is called being mindful of everything: the sounds, natur…
 
Think about, when COVID had first erupted last year, how prepared were you -- financially? Good chance that you were on the outside looking in. Meaning, when everything shut down, you put all your eggs into one basket (your main income stream) and then POOF! Gone! How about the second, third, fourth, etc.....times that the economy in your country h…
