Hi! I'm Kirstyn of TOEFL Land and I've helped hundreds of students achieve success on the TOEFL writing section.
Here's what Nazila had to say about her TOEFL Writing experience after classes with me:
"Kirstyn showed me that TOEFL can be not a big deal. You can get the score you want if you know what to do and how to do it. With her help and the new confidence that I gained, I went in and I took the test again and this time I not only managed to finish my essay, I even had extra time to edit my essay. And I scored 28 in the writing section, which I'm very happy about."
