About Birkenhead English

Hello! I'm Jane Birkenhead.

Let me tell you a bit about Birkenhead English and how I can help you to reach your target TOEFL scores.

Whatever your reason is for doing TOEFL, I can help you. However many times you've taken the TOEFL exam and whatever ways you've been studying, I will discover what's holding you back, and help you to succeed.

Birkenhead English is my own company which I set up so I could work directly with exams students. I offer TOEFL tutoring in private lessons, online self-study courses, writing and speaking feedback and TOEFL score analysis.

I am here to work with you for your TOEFL success.

I started working with TOEFL students in 2015. Since then, I’ve taught thousands of hours of lessons, and worked with hundreds of students from different professions, countries and language groups. I've created my own exclusive TOEFL resources which I use with my students in private online TOEFL lessons.

I'm known for being thorough and for my attention to detail. And also for my friendliness and my positive attitude!

This is what other students have said about me.

You were so patient with me and you never gave up.

Something that I really appreciated was that you took my recordings seriously, making sure you understood what I was telling you and making it easier for me to understand my mistakes.

I wish I had taken lessons with you earlier and I 100% recommend you.

Success Stories

 

One of the things that makes me happy about you is that you think about your students.

I feel that you are all the time thinking of your students and worried about what is happening with them.

Honestly I’ve never felt this with an online tutor, or with any of the professors I’ve had in my entire life.

 

 

Quirenia, pharmacist

Meeting you gave me hope and relief. Speaking with you was eye-opening and inspiring.

For the first time, someone has told me exactly what to do. Thank you for addressing all my concerns and for your lovely comforting smile.


 

 

Meriet, pharmacist

I feel that you are interested in helping students. You took that course and I’m so glad you did.

You told me my real struggles and what kind of things I needed to work on. I was very surprised by that and I felt like I had been walking around with a mask on. Like I was trying to take TOEFL but not addressing the problem properly.

Your Personalized TOEFL Lessons

At Birkenhead English, your TOEFL lesson is entirely devoted to you. We go at YOUR pace and we focus on YOUR weaknesses.

In lessons, we use video conferencing technology which allows you to record every lesson for review later. I share a variety of carefully prepared resources and, if you need them, I will create extra resources especially for you. Everything is organized to help you study effectively and you'll get my detailed feedback for everything you do in lessons and for homework.

I work from my calm, quiet home office where you will have my undivided attention for your entire TOEFL lesson time.

All you have to do is come prepared to your lesson, do your homework and practice, and I can help you succeed in TOEFL!

Here is a list of my qualifications and experience so you can check me out:

Did you know that ANYONE can call themselves a TOEFL teacher? They don't need qualifications or experience of the TOEFL exam. There are no industry checks to make sure people are genuine.

If you are serious about getting your TOEFL scores and achieving your dreams, you owe it to yourself to work with an experienced, trusted professional.

Look at every TOEFL tutor's qualifications and experience before you decide whether to work with them.
