Hello, everyone! Here's a full video from my TOEFL iBT Course!

Voicemails could be tricky for note-taking. We live in a world now that we don't get many voicemails, but instead we get Whatsapp voice messages, or other messages on other social media platforms. So, when you do get them, sometimes we listen for 1-5 minutes and can't remember anything. So, it's time to prepare for effective note-taking! Also, dead…

So, in today's wonderful video/podcast, I break down three speaking evaluations from a student of mine. There are different areas she needs to improve on (introduction, conclusion, etc), but I emphasized adding in some pretty awesome linkers. If you state an idiom, it's great to use a connect such as "in other words," to sum up exactly what that id…

BOOM! She's now a pharmacist in my native Las Vegas! …
 
So grateful to bring you this amazing coaching session. First, I have a wonderful student from Saudi Arabia who had bought my TOEFL iTP Course, and shortly after, she bought some coaching hours. Because she's 13 points away, she cannot afford another slip up, so in the first coaching session, I introduced EVERYTHING to her that will benefit her gre…
 
Sometimes when we make phone calls with friends, we kind of just "wing" the conversation, meaning it's just random chit chat. However, the reason why you don't make phone calls in English, even putting them off, is because you're afraid, right? I've been there. I was terrified of calling ANYONE about ANYTHING when I was younger, and in today's podc…
 
When it comes to budget cuts, the Fat Cats -- those who make all the money, including the CEOs managers and others that make a lot of money -- are the ones that say "let's fire employees" without any empathy.

We're back with another phenomenal video! In today's lesson, we're going to be deep-diving into the amazing Milky Way Galaxy. Please note, the question at the end is absolute BS.

When you're at a business conference, there are a number of ways you can start a conversation.

So, when it comes to this particular essay, there are a number of ways that you can present ideas in: chronological order, sequence, and highlighting. However, it's still important to have two core ideas in your paragraph so you don't lose track and give a bunch of…
 
In life, most people need a mentor/coach. When it comes to business, often times they're not exactly sure where they need help before it's too late. They could be very money-centered and driven by success in a monetary way, but they're lacking in their marriages, learning, personal development, and many other categories. So, in today's discussion, …
 
Check your energy. Really, over the last couple of days, I realized that my energy has been very low in terms of working out.

In today's podcast, we dive into just that!…

Wow, for the first time in my life, I had someone call me "thief," which is totally untrue. The most important thing is how I reacted to the situation. Because this is my personal business, this could be a dire situation, but based on requests, actions, follow-up and repeating information from this particular client, it's all about how you handle d…
 
Who are the first ones to get their salary at any job? Those who are expendable. I realized that even working part-time for the tutorial center here in Thailand that only I should be in charge of my finances. When you deal with people who aren't very empathetic, you're putting yourself in between a rock and a hard place, meaning with no opportuniti…

Season 7 wrapped up; Season 8 on full throttle! Welcome to the 8th season of my podcast! In general, most podcasters take weeks, maybe even months off. For me, this is part of my life. It's like taking a break off from something I absolutely LOVE to do, and because this isn't a podcast where I host other people, it makes it much easier to do -- the…
