Change Your Approach and Get Results
Sherlen really works on the weaknesses that you currently have and creates a very effective plan to correct them. I had a lot of grammar mistakes and accent problems. Although I had 23 in speaking in my first TOEFL exam ,with repetition and studying hard, I ended up scoring 29 in speaking after 4 months. Sherlen has very unique strategies that help not only for English language proficiency but also for teaching the brain how to make connections for a fast progress. She will help you and give you feedback on your answers but you need to work with her to really benefit from her knowledge and her ways of teaching. It’s all about precision and doing your part of this equation. She really cares for all of her students and if you really suffered a lot from this stressful exam, it would be amazing to start working with Sherlen. I really appreciate the effort and the warm support that I had from Sherlen and Steve during this time when TOEFL exam results were very critical for my life. If I didn’t meet them when I first moved to the US, it would be hard for me to pass the exam in such a short time.

I just wanted to share my experience of the group lessons with Sherlen. I didn’t attend group lessons with others, but she is really great! What I like about her is that she gives feedback to everyone in each lesson. There is a weekly plan for all of us to follow. It’s organized and useful as you can learn from your mistakes and from others’ mistakes as well.
The accent reduction also helps to correct your pronunciation and intonation for speaking clearly for 26.
First of all I want to take my hat off to teacher “Sherlen” for her patience and effective guidance during my review. Here is my story…After trying several (around 6) TOEFL online review courses, I finally found ESA. The Nursing commission in the state of Washington requires me to have a TOEFL speaking score of 26, and I got it. It took only 1 test. I passed the test without any dificulty and I got a speaking score of 27. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to especially my teacher SHERLEN and of course to JAMIE MILLER in providing consistent support throughout the review.
M.I, an Egyptian pharmacist
Hi all…I want to share my experience with all of you. I just passed the Toefl exam with the required scores and got 28 in the speaking section ??. I was struggling in the speaking section for a year and a half and the exam was a nightmare for me. I was so disappointed and I lost my self-confidence. But last month I decided to join the group lessons with Sherlen Solen Tanner. It was the best experience ever for me. I honestly found my self there. She was able to put me on the right track and she increased my self-confidence to a great extent. She taught me how to be relaxed and calm while answering the speaking section and I think that what I was missing in the exams that I had before. Being relaxed and confident in the speaking section increases your ability to concentrate and speak clearly. The most important thing in the group lessons is the idea of speaking in front of other people who will analyze your answer. This helped me a lot to overcome my fears of that section. I am so thankful to her and I recommend her lessons for everyone who needs to pass the Toefl. Again thank you Sherlen Solen Tanner for your effort.
