How would you verify the number of times a private method is called?

The above is great if you just want to make sure a private method was called, but what if it is in a loop and you need to verify the number of times it was called?

Isolate.Verify.GetTimesCalled is currently not available in the NonPublic API.

This problem can be solved using DoInstead:

public class UnderTest
    public  void TestedMethod()
        for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++)
    private void SubjectMethod(){}

[TestClass, Isolated]
public class UnitTests
    public void Verifying_TimesPrivateMethodWasCalled()
        int counter = 0;
        var underTest = new UnderTest();
        Isolate.NonPublic.WhenCalled(underTest, "SubjectMethod").DoInstead(c=>


        Assert.AreEqual(5, counter);
