Too much

ESL students frequently have trouble learning about the correct use of "too" as a modifier, using it as a stronger form of "very". This error leads to comments such as the following, which came from a student evaluation:
"I think everything was right for this course. And the teacher was too good for us."
(At least, I hope it was the usual error and not a self-esteem issue.)
