“The training sessions with Paul helped me stay confident and comfortable during the test. It was a moment of joy and proud when I received my score of 108/120 with 28 in speaking. Thanks Paul for all your guidance.”
Shivani’s story is simpler than most. She contacted me in July 2016, with only 3 weeks until her TOEFL test date.
She had never taken TOEFL before, so this was her very first test.
In our TOEFL Speaking Evaluation, I evaluated her at about a 23/24 on TOEFL Speaking.
Like many other students who study with free resources from places like Notefull, she was using templates and sounded robotic in her responses.
So, we worked together for a total of 3 weeks. In that short period of time, Shivani worked super hard and completely transformed her responses.
Here is the message I got from her 10 days after the exam:
When we asked Shivani to write about her experience, here is what she said:
As a first time TOEFL test taker, I was determined to get 28 in speaking. I took speaking classes with Paul, who helped me in every possible way to secure what I was aiming for.
Paul helped me in improving my umms…. and uhhs… He also made me aware that I’m using some formal words in my conversation which could prevent me from getting a high score.
In just 5 sessions, I became very confident with all six types of questions.
The training sessions with Paul helped me stay confident and comfortable during the test.
It was a moment of joy and proud when I received my score of 108/120 with 28 in speaking.
Thanks, Paul, for all your guidance.
Great job, Shivani! And best of luck with your future career!
