I have always believed that a structured review for the NPTE could help achieve a successful examination. I have tried reviewing by myself and failed the first time. It was not easy, but I kept my will strong, I always believe that something good will happen. Until one time I had a call from one of the staff of JROOZ, where it all began.
I started at JROOZ as they were starting to promote NPTE review. I stayed with them from the start up to present until I passed the NPTE. Under their review program, I was able to come up with innovative means to prepare myself for the NPTE. It took me just a little time to realize what I needed to prepare. With their very accommodating staffs and assorted original references readily available for use, my experience with JROOZ is worth it!
- Jose Vivian G. Corre, PTRP, RPT (Clinical Supervisor Fatima Eye & Rehab Center)
I was privileged to be one of the 10 scholars of Grandison Management and JROOZ Review Center who was sent to Culver City, CA, USA last May 23, 2011 to take the May 25 NPTE-i.
I started out with JROOZ last June 28, 2010 and originally was part of Batch 2. I was fresh out of a non-PT related job, with no credentials whatsoever, unaware of all the processes and steps needed to pursue a career in the US but armed with just the determination that I wanted to pursue and take the licensure exam. Considering my long hiatus from the physical therapy field and my lack of credentials JROOZ helped me by guiding me as to which step to take in order to start processing my papers.
JROOZ provided me with lectures, review materials and all other resources to jump start my review. JROOZ kept us together, motivated and pushed us to continue on reviewing, provided the constant guidance and reminder for us to focus and make use of all the resources provided to us.
I’m a full-blooded, loyal JROOZ student, through and through. More power JROOZ!
- Alyssa Ingrid M. Tumulak
Five years of school as a Physical Therapy student, four months of review from an “unknown” review center. All eyes were on us as we take on the challenge of being the first batch of JROOZ Review Center Davao. Criticisms arise due to uncertainty of passing the board exam because of the “new breed” of review center. Words have been spoken, feelings were hurt and the damage has been done. All they had to say was “Bakit dyan kayo? Di naman kilalang review center yan eh. Sigurado kaba dyan? Alam mo na ba to?”. Words that made us feel the hunger for success. For them to eat those words, we had to pass. And for them to feel guilty, we had to exceed the performances of other “known” review centers.
Four months I have been with JROOZ and 4 months I have been spending my review with such fun and excitement. We are a family. Destined for success and ordained to be an inspiration for others. That’s my motto as I entered JROOZ Review Center. What more can I ask for. Great facility, up to date library, friendly staff and most of all great and beautiful lecturers inside and out.
Indeed success is the best revenge, but there’s better. We don’t do this just for revenge but we do this for ourselves. Love for self and passion for work makes everything possible.
- Carl Dominic Duy, PTRP (San Pedro College – Batch 2011)
We all have the equal chance to pass the board examinations. The trick is making it easy. Reviewing for all the subjects needed to be able to pass the board examinations is definitely a difficult task. JROOZ provided me with the best strategy to know what topics should be prioritized, when to study it and as funny as it may sound how to study it (be it songs, mnemonics and drawings).
JROOZ helped in building my endurance to actually sit down, read, and analyze 400-500 questions per day. It is an advantage to have that mental toughness to make it through numerous questions, to analyze each one and select the best answer possible. Equipped with a very intensive coaching program JROOZ built my self-confidence week by week. Alongside a very conducive environment for learning, the best lecturers there is and the right review resources, JROOZ is your best choice.
JROOZ made it easy for me!
- Jerrar Ingalls, PTRP (DCU Batch 2011)
They say people make good or bad choices, depending on how they play their cards. For me having my review here in Davao together with JROOZ review center was a good…no, it was the best choice I’ve done in preparing myself for the PT local board exam.
The lecturers were the best, they supported and motivated us to achieve my goal and that is to pass the local board with ease and confidence! And they’ve taught me one lesson that I will never forget and that is to “Constantly challenge yourself” for you to become a better Physical Therapist of tomorrow.

Ma. Patrocinio Salcedo, PTRP
I’m Ma. Patrocinio Salcedo, I graduated from Southwestern University many years back, that was approximately 12 years ago. I left PT and had a life outside my course. I became a wife and a mother of two kids and had worked for many companies that gave me knowledge and skills outside the medical field. For some reasons, I feel I had this calling to go back to PT and I did. Last February 2011, I decided to apply as PT volunteer at Visayas Community Medical Center. There I met fellow PT’s who also planned of enrolling at a review class. It is where I knew about JROOZ. Since at that time JROOZ is offering a big discount for group of four reviewees. So we enrolled together with my co-PT volunteers. At first it was not really easy for me, I admit for years I never really opened or read books related to our profession. The work experiences I have were all related to sales and marketing. I find it hard to absorbed and retained information given by lecturers. But that was only for the first few days of my review. I could not believe JROOZ help me regained my confidence and knowledge, which was hidden from years of non-practice.
JROOZ provided us with almost everything to make us ready for the big battle. We are provided with top caliber lecturers from well-known schools of PT. The lecturers are very well versed and knowledgeable about the topic that they were assigned to discussed. Aside from that JROOZ also has latest books which you can borrow, although I had some of it before but it was an old edition and my colleagues says the information are already obsolete. JROOZ also provide as free reading materials already printed on paper. They also spend a lot money to provide us with e-books for very important topics and reviewers. And they also spend time and effort extracting from the reviewers the topics, which the lecturers feel, are related to local boards and necessary for our practice here in the country.
Though JROOZ will provide you with all these, we also need to have self- discipline, time management and prioritizing things to study. And with perseverance, determination and above all faith in GOD, I made it through. And with the strong support I got from JROOZ Review Center and its staff, from the first day of our lecture down to the day of our board exam they were always there boosting our confidence, encouraging us when we feel down with our post lecture scores, their fun and effective ways to stimulate our minds, and of course their prayers. The encouragements and prayers of my parents and the love and support of my husband and kids inspire me and made me pass the exam. The atmosphere in JROOZ is also very warm and friendly, the staff, lecturers and my co reviewees which make it easier for me to cope and go along with my review. I have JROOZ and the staff and their dynamic men and pretty ladies lecturers, to thank for. I am now a PTRP…next step…RPT!
Good luck future PTRP’s, you really made the right choice of choosing JROOZ to attain your goals. Thank you and God bless!
I am Sharlene Alba, My required score is 5.5 and I got a score of 6.5. My trainer is Ms. Grace but Ms. Janina did my final coaching. I had my review from November 12-23, 2012 and took my exam last December 1, 2012. Before I took the intensive review at JROOZ, I did a self review wherein I borrowed IELTS advanced book and cd from a library. It wasn’t easy because I didn’t take it seriously since nobody is supervising me but at least it gave me a background somehow. When I started JROOZ training, Ms. Grace taught us almost everything that we need to learn. It is indeed true that we should not underestimate IELTS because it’s not that easy. Having trained will surely help us pass the test. Tips especially on Reading and Writing helped me a lot.

I am Katherine Hinggo Businesswoman, I feel like I’m at home whenever I go to JROOZ for my review. This is basically because the instructors are very approachable. Another attribute that I find very positive and beneficial is their utmost concern for their students to pass.
- Katherine Hinggo, SEPTEMBER IELTS PASSER
JROOZ Review Center has helped me pass my IELTS exam. Their intensive and tailored review fitted right in to my schedule and desired time. I would have to say that if I did not take review classes, there could have been a big chance that I failed the exam and failing would hinder me from getting the scholarship in Korea that I am currently undergoing now. The staff was very friendly and supportive. They helped me every step of the way. It was very convenient for me.
- Karla Patricia Colmenar
My consultancy firm recommended JROOZ in my preparation for IELTS. I never had a second thought to enroll here. The schedules are definitely flexible, fitting for all the candidates who work and wants to review at the same time. It also trained me on how to attack the questions through test taking strategies. Also, the review materials were so helpful. The staffs are very accommodating and will assist to your needs as much as they can. They would not just treat you as their reviewee but they would also make you feel that you are a part of the family. Thank you very much JROOZ.
- Rose Ann Dellomas
I have been with Jrooz for only a short time but their IELTS program has helped me a during the time I prepared for my exam. They have very qualified reviewers who are always ready to share their knowledge and to teach those who are eager to learn. They also have various practice tests that will definitely hone one’s test taking skills. Most of all, they have very friendly and welcoming staff who never fails to ease one’s anxiety. Jrooz truly provides a good training ground for those who really want to excel. They do it not in a dictatorial manner but learning is done in a relaxing and comforting environment. Thanks Jrooz and thanks Miss Dianne for the heartfelt support.

Preparing for my IELTS examination at JROOZ Review Center was a fun experience for me. The review center was great, it had an interactive approach of teaching towards their students were in they are challenged on thinking and exposing them to new ideas. I really learned a lot from my 2-week review from them, they started me with a diagnostic test to evaluate my strengths and weaknesses and workout my weak points in the four phases of the IELTS examination. However, I was not good in all areas, so the teachers, Ms. Jaz and Ms. Crisna really gave their best to help me by teaching me strategies on how to pass the exam as well as bring out the confidence in me. I am so glad that I was able to reach my target band score and this will really help out with my career job in the future. I am certain that the students who are currently reviewing at JROOZ will achieve their goals too!

I recently took the TOEFL IBTand fortunately aced it! I could not thank. JROOZ Review Center, the instructors and my co-reviewees enough for being of great help to my success. The instructors were very friendly and approachable so I never had a hard time in feeling at ease during my review. The mock tests and activities were very comprehensive too. I especially like the “hot seat” activity wherein I had to answer some TOEFL questions in front of the instructors and the rest of the reviewees . At first of course it felt so awkward, but I then realized that it was of my own advantage because it helped me gain my confidence when I took the actual test. The mock exams also give me test taking strategies which were very useful when I took the actual test. I felt that it was a bit easier than I expected. The instructors used to tell us that TOEFL means USA but I say JROOZ means passing the TOEFL. I’m so proud that I am a part of JROOZ Family.

I cannot imagine taking and passing the TOEFL if not because of JROOZ Review Center. I had my own reviewers and thought of reviewing for the TOEFL IBT all by myself since I am a working mom.However , I always end up setting my reviewers aside. Thank God, I found JROOZ Review Center here in Cebu. The center gave me a schedule that suits me best as a physical therapist and a mother of two. My review experience was amazing! I was more than ready when I took the actual test because I was not only equipped with the knowledge and test taking strategy but above all I had the needed confidence. Thanks to my instructors who had extended their help from grammar to speech until the technicalities in TOEFL. I salute JROOZ Review Center for a job well done, not only to me but to most of my colleagues.

I am Joanne Que from (United Methodists Home and Services). By the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, He gave me a score that was more than what is being required. I passed. To God be the glory! My heartfelt thanks to you, to Nappy (sounds like a gay name), to Sir Gerar, and to Ms. Dove for helping us on how to answer the questions properly. Let’s all congratulate ourselves for the job well done. I’m praying for the success of my colleagues, and God bless to those who are going to take the exam. May the God of hope fill all of us with all joy and peace as we trust in Him. Thank you so much and Merry Christmas.

I cannot thank JROOZ enough for not only giving me the proper skill set to pass the TOEFL exam but also making me a confident individual especially when speaking the English language in front of people. Also, I passed the exam with flying colors and had results higher than I expected especially on the speaking section.
- Ryan Nartia, PTRP
I am a Physical Therapist, and one of the things that I needed to do before taking my National Physical Therapy Exam in the United States was to take the TOEFL exam first. I joined JROOZ Learning Center to prepare for it. It was really difficult for me along the way because I needed to get a passing grade of 26/30 in speaking, but JROOZ taught me very well. They gave me the techniques to answer and how to speak efficiently to get a score of 27/30. Finally, now I can focus myself in preparation for my National Physical Therapy Exam. Thank you JROOZ for the help that you gave to achieve my dreams.
- Rhod Carbiero, PTRP
Undoubtedly, JROOZ-TOEFL-ibt review program has given the opportunity in fulfilling my “American Dream”. With its top caliber TOEFL-ibt lecturers, I was able to learn various test-taking strategies and techniques in attacking this life-changing test. They were extremely helpful and it did augment my English proficiency skills most especially the speaking part. After all the hard work and support of my TOEFL mentors, it all paid off. I am very happy and proud to receive my passing TOEFL scores with 29/30 on the speaking part.
My special thanks to the Jrooz Teachers for their invaluable support and imparting to me all the knowledge they have that brought me in this stage of success. You are really a part of this great achievement in my life and career. I will forever be grateful.GOD BLESS and MORE POWER to JROOZ TOEFL TEAM.
