OCTOBER 2018 – PHARMACY.
Naghme O.Z. is a pharmacist from Iran who passed her FPGEE in October of 2016.
She needed to beat the TOEFL so she could get her license here in the US.
Once she was done with her FPGEE, she started to look for programs to prepare…
Although her English level was intermediate, Naghme’s challenge was that she knew nothing about the TOEFL. She didn’t have the slightest idea of what to expect. So she was terrified that she wouldn’t be able to pass. Especially since she needed a 26 on the Speaking section…
All of her friends recommended NoteFull to her as the best source for the TOEFL. And after looking through several other options for a solution, Naghme finally decided to study with us.
She signed up for the Complete TOEFL Mastery Program, one-on-one tutoring, and reviews. Studying for 3 to 4 hours a day, she covered every word of the Complete TOEFL Mastery Program.
“I was like a toddler, and I can confess that with the help of Joseph and his powerful TOEFL package, I could learn how to walk…I did not know anything about the TOEFL, but with the help of this package I learned everything about the TOEFL, and I improved a lot. I finished the package and then purchased the ‘Beginner and Advanced TOEFL Vocabulary’ which helped me to develop my vocabulary.”
After she went through both programs, she decided to see how far her skills had come. She took the TOEFL for her first time and scored a total of 78. A great first score. But she was far from her dream score…
So she chose to go back through the Complete TOEFL Mastery program from start to finish. Only this time she was studying from 8-12 hours each day!
Naghme found that our study schedule helped her improve a lot. Breaking her study sessions into 2 hour parts for each section of the exam gave her a plan of attack for each day.
In October of 2017, she signed up for our October Group Class Series. These classes turned out to be a crucial part of her success. She put every ounce of her effort into learning and mastering each point in the series. And her scores greatly improved as a result.
After the class series she signed up for one on one tutoring. These sessions helped her find her weaknesses and showed her where she needed to improve.
Come February 2018, Naghme took another Group Class with us that helped her scores shoot up. She learned the importance of drilling exercises to really boost her skills.
On her next TOEFL attempt she was able to get a 93! But it still wasn’t good enough. Thankfully, she made a friend in the February group class who she could practice with: Mehrnoush. The care and support they showed each other was invaluable to Naghme’s success.
By this time, she could get the scores she needed in each section of the test. But not on the same attempt! She was dealing with so much frustration. Many students wouldn’t have been able to keep going. But Naghme didn’t give up…
“Even though I got frustrated many times, I never gave up because I had decided to fight for my goal. I decided to keep practicing more and more to master the strategies. After several months of hard studying, focused work and more importantly, commitment to every single point of NoteFull strategies, finally, my dream came true…”
On Their Way
Thanks to all her hard work and dedication, on her final TOEFL attempt Naghme finally did it! She got the scores she needed in all 4 sections for a total of 98.
“I definitely know that without Joseph and NoteFull, I would not have been able to pass this exam.”
By the way, she was able to score that high even though she was sick that day! Imagine what her scores would have been if she wasn’t…
Congrats, Naghme! Well done 🙂Reading: 23, Listening: 24, Speaking: 27, Writing: 24
