Simple TOEFL Hacks
Hey I’m John, the founder of Study With It – the site that helps people prepare for the TOEFL.
I help people solve tough problems and defeat standardized tests. After years of focusing on the hardest tests – the SAT, IELTS, and TOEFL, I’m happy to give you all of my insights, hacks, and approaches.
Let me show you how to attack the TOEFL. And win.
My TOEFL iBT training program is intense but it’s also fun. It’s totally self directed – not dripped – so jump in there and start building the skills you need. There are a bunch of freebie lectures that you can check out right now, so definitely try before you buy.
The TOEFL is hard. Don’t take it twice.

FAQ: Ask John Healy
Updated April 17, 2018
I am an English teacher. Will this course help?
Yes. If you are an online teacher looking to expand your service offering, test prep is a lucrative and rewarding business. There are lots of hacks out there who don’t know the test, who don’t take the test, and/or who have no teaching credentials. You’ll learn a lot from my teaching methodology and approach to lesson planning and pacing.
How long is Clear Strategies & Tactics?
There are 99 videos with an average watch time of 7 minutes. So that’s about 12 hours of video content. I suggest that you spend at least another 20-40 hours in mock tests and practice tasks. With supplementary exam materials and all the other free goodies I have for you, best to think of this as a hard-core 1-month assignment, or, if you’re planning ahead, 1 hour per day for 3 months should give you enough prep time to make very significant advances in your core skills.
What about my English level?
Good question. The course is completely in English, so if you’re a low beginner, you will find it difficult to understand. Check out some sample lectures to make sure you understand me. I am a professional ESL/EFL instructor, so I do modify my speech (slow down slightly). Check out an example of my English speaking style here.
What about the courseware?
The training program has worksheets and pdfs and other content that you can use at home to build skills. What’s more is a library of fantastic digital resources that will expand your library of tools and help you build TOEFL skills faster.
If you are preparing for the TOEFL iBT exam, you need to gather insights into the test. The TOEFL is a high-stakes test that requires planning, preparation, and strategic thinking. Gathering all this intelligence online is soul crushing and time consuming. You need a great coach and a great training program.
Do you guarantee results?
Inasmuch as a teacher can. I don’t want to be coy, but it really depends on the amount of work that you put into your training. I’m giving you all the tools you need – all of them. If you are looking for more personalized training, I do offer private coaching, but tbh I’m pretty expensive. If you are unhappy with the course, please let me know and I’ll give you a refund.
Do you have a "TOEFL System"?
Yes. You will be taught a systematic approach to analyzing input (question prompts, text, listening material) and applying task-specific approaches to output correct responses. For example, you will learn how to use time cues to structure your Speaking answers.
