Mena S.R:26, L:30, S:26, W:25
MAY 2014 – PHARMACY.
NoteFull is happy to introduce you to May’s Student of the Month: Mena S. from Egypt!
Mena is a pharmacy tech with dreams of working in the United States as a licensed pharmacist. He took his first TOEFL last March and got great results: R24, L26, S23, W22
But he quickly found that getting the scores he needed would take a different approach…
Mena was working as a pharmacy tech throughout his TOEFL journey. He also had a family at home. So, his challenge was finding time to study. He would take the test as often as he could without much study time in between attempts. It was hard for him to find a balance with everything going on in his life.
Like many students, he thought he would be able to pass the TOEFL if he just put a little effort into it. But he quickly saw that it wouldn’t be that easy. He needed help. And thankfully, he knew where to get it.
Mena’s solution was teaming up with NoteFull. He signed up for the 3-Step Writing and 3-Step Speaking Mastery programs, and then he stepped it up a notch. He registered for the 12-Step Writing and 12-Step Speaking Mastery programs. Both with tutoring sessions and reviews. With his new resources, Mena started studying 10 hours a week.
The reviews turned out to be very helpful for him when it came to the Writing section. He learned valuable lessons about how to improve his grammar and sentence structure. They also helped him to write with clarity. These new skills allowed him to score higher in Writing than he ever had before!
For the Speaking section, tutoring sessions were the key to Mena’s success. The instructor helped him identify his weaknesses. They focused on what he needed to work on the most. Often times students aren’t sure what or how to study to improve their scores. So, they end up studying everything. Tutoring sessions were a great help to Mena because the instructors showed him exactly where he needed to get better.
“I have never dreamed that I could get ‘good’ in crazy questions 4 and 6, but I did it with the NoteFull tips in tutoring and reviews.”
On Their Way
In just 2 months of signing up with NoteFull, Mena earned his dream scores! Needless to say, Mena is very excited to take the next step on his career path. And eventually earn his FPGEC! Great work, Mena! You did it!
Here are a few of Mena’s tips and words of advice for you:
- “Record your answers and listen to the way you speak under TOEFL conditions.
- If you’re stuck at 23 in the Speaking section, try reviews and tutoring.
The bottom line is: do not give up or lose your faith…these courses will save your time, money and effort. To be honest with you, I didn’t believe that at the beginning, but here I am, I passed after just 2 months of starting the reviews and tutoring. You can do it, you will do it. Study with passion.”Reading: 26, Listening: 30, Speaking: 26, Writing: 25
