APRIL 2016 – PHARMACY.
This month we are highlighting the success story of someone who’s TOEFL results surpassed her wildest dreams!
Franziska B. is a licensed pharmacist from Germany. She completed a 6-month internship at the University of Florida. And she wants to chase her dream of working in the US as a pharmacist.
Franziska’s challenge was rather unique among our students. But her commitment was nothing short of amazing. She would fly from Germany to Florida every time she took the TOEFL. As you can probably guess, it was really upsetting when she scored below her goal. Getting poor results is bad enough. Imagine flying across the world (multiple times!) only to be let down…How awful that must have been!
She wasn’t getting the scores she needed. But she was still scoring in the 90s every time.
So, Franziska started searching online for a solution. She had already mastered the reading and listening sections by the time she found NoteFull. She just needed to get her speaking and writing squared away. The pharmacy board requires that students get a 26 in the speaking and a 24 in the writing section. So she had her goals to work towards.
She then signed up for the 3-Step Speaking Mastery program. As well as some Tutoring Sessions with Nayyer and a Writing Review.
Franziska used her self-study program and our YouTube videos to build a strong study routine for herself.
“I left all my old books behind, the standard literature like Kaplan’s and the material from ETS, because NoteFull offers so much.”
She didn’t have an internet connection at her house. So, she was forced to study at a nearby cafe. Most students wouldn’t be able to study in such a noisy place. But she used it to her advantage. Dealing with the noise and distractions of the cafe was great practice for taking the actual test.
Working through the programs, Franziska found the teachers very helpful…
“The teachers are very motivating in the way they deliver their speeches in the videos. You can really feel their energy, how much they know about each question, and that they have personal experience taking the test. They also seem to know how the students feel. They can relate to their issues, their anxieties, and weaknesses.”
She also noticed that the tutoring sessions with Nayyer and the reviews helped her improve immensely…
“Reviews were also very helpful. For little money, only a few dollars- what you get is so much! It gave me confidence because Nayyer, he told me what was good and I could be confident about that and he pinpointed my exact weaknesses. He was always concrete and precise in how he graded it.”
On Their Way
On her first TOEFL attempt since she found NoteFull, Franziska’s results were incredible. She got a near perfect score of 114! This story just goes to show that hard work and commitment do pay off. If you use the right tools and put in the work, you WILL see TOEFL success!
We are so grateful that we got to be a part of your journey, Franziska. We can’t wait to see you living your dream in the US very soon!
“If something like this existed for pharmacy studies, everyone could be a pharmacist! It’s just the best thing for English studies that exists on the planet!”Reading: 29, Listening: 29, Speaking: 28, Writing: 28
