T-O-E-F-L I also like to stand by a poster at the door when students are leaving my class- The last thing they see is the affirmation on the poster: "I know more today than I did yesterday, t am preparing, I wilt succeed." Some students want a handshake, a high five, or a hug. Others just smile and say good-bye Some hang by the door, and I know that they need to talk. Every excellent TOEFL prep teacher I know is also a very good counselor. You probably are, too.
