Meet M., a dentist from Ukraine who decided to commit to coordinated private lessons after several unsuccessful TOEFL attempts. After 7 weeks of lessons with Jane, she did incredibly well, with the total score of 105 (Reading 25, Listening 28, Speaking 26, Writing 26).
We then asked her to share her story and some advice with other TOEFL students, and here’s what she wrote:
“Before I took lessons with Jane I had tried to pass TOEFL 4 times. My weaknesses were in reading and writing, and I had tried lots of things to improve my scores in those sections, but I didn’t have any results. I made a decision that I need a real teacher who can give me good advice and who can see my language mistakes. I felt that I had got my inspiration back after I started to study with Jane. I scored 25 in reading and I could never even dream about it before, my writing score also went up to 26!!! It was my 6th time taking the exam.
My advice to everybody: do not lose hope! Take all your positive energy with you, get a good night sleep before the exam day, remember all the tips from studying with your teacher and you can do it! Hard work always pays off.”
Congratulations M.! We’re proud of you.
