Program Description

TOEFL at the Tutorium
More than Great Scores—Great English

Excellent Preparation for the TOEFL iBT
Integrated listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

The intensive program offers excellent preparation for success with English in the TOEFL iBT and with English anywhere.

For example, Tutorium students

  • learn how to summarize information and state an opinion in both speaking and writing
  • learn how to find main ideas quickly and make inferences in both reading and listening
  • improve grammar and vocabulary while practicing all four skills
  • use technology to develop the four skills

And Tutorium students benefit from our integrated skills curriculum:

  • every class combines skills: reading with writing, listening with speaking
  • daily exercises combine skills: reading with speaking, listening with writing
  • courses at the high advanced level integrate all four skills

Integrated skills may be new for the TOEFL iBT, but they're not new for the Tutorium. Since the early 1990s our program has been based on integrated skills. Our curriculum is both current and proven, and our students benefit from our experience.

Institutional Testing Program (ITP) TOEFL
Students in levels 3-5 take the ITP TOEFL as a part of the regular intensive program at no extra charge.

TOEFL iBT Preparation Course

This is a part-time course that meets once a week in the Tutorium computer lab. The classes are small and led by a professional English language instructor who has extensive experience with the TOEFL iBT. Students practice all four skill sections of the test and receive individual feedback from the instructor. (This course is separate from the intensive program.)
