JULY 2018 – PHYSICAL THERAPY.
Jaldhi S. is a student of ours who practiced Physical Therapy in Michigan.
Thankfully, Michigan doesn’t require a certain TOEFL score to work in her field. But her and her family were planning on moving to Texas.
And unfortunately, Texas did require that she take the test…
Jaldhi wasn’t worried though. She spoke English regularly at her job. And lots of her patients told her that she had a strong grasp of the language. But it would be much more of a challenge than she thought…
She was able to hit the listening score she needed on her first attempt. But her other scores weren’t high enough (Reading: 20, speaking: 23, writing: 20).
“I took my first exam in May 2017 in the middle of packing to move to Texas! Not only was I taking care of my 5-month old daughter at that time, but also my son and two other children as well. I hadn’t practiced for it at all, I just figured that since I can communicate well in real life, that would be enough.”
She tried taking the test again the next month and saw similar results. She simply had too much on her plate with the move and taking care of 4 children.
There wasn’t much time to study during the fall months because she was too busy setting up her new house and taking care of her kids. Before she knew it, it was January 2018. She realized she had very little time left before her Texas Physiotherapy License Application expired.
So she started to look online for a TOEFL solution. And that’s when she found NoteFull…
She chose to start with our Complete TOEFL Mastery program. Although it was a great resource for her, she didn’t have very much time to study it. And it was hard for her to find and fix her weaknesses without any direct support.
When she took the TOEFL again in February, her scores hadn’t improved at all.
Jaldhi was running out of time. And she was still just as busy as before. Thankfully, in April she found out about our One-on-One Tutoring sessions. She signed up for 8 of them and worked with Mathew and Nayyer throughout April and May.
“I put my daughter in daycare on the days I had classes, so I was able to have 3 hours to study. One of those was for tutoring, and the other 2 hours were to practice what I learned. That’s all I had time for every week! But Mathew and Nayyer showed me that I was repeating parts of my answers, and that I didn’t need to panic about the timer. I should see it as my friend, just guiding me. When I studied by myself, I would just practice the same question over and over and over. For the writing, I learned that although my content was good, I was making too many spelling and punctuation mistakes. So I focused on improving those areas.”
Having blocked out time to study, she could really focus on improving her English skills. By the end of May 2018 she was ready to defeat the TOEFL!
On Their Way
On May 27th, 2018 Jadlhi finally passed with great scores! After months of struggle she was able to take her speaking score from 23 to 29. And her writing score shot up from 20 to 27.
Now that she had her dream scores she could continue working as a Physiotherapist in Texas! Her advice to anyone studying for the TOEFL who doesn’t have much time is to sign up for tutoring. You’ll find out what’s holding you back and how to get better on it.
