PrepEssentials Testimonial Highlights


Jenny, University of Toronto Schools

"I thought that PREPESSENTIALS™ was a great course, and gave you a chance to try out new ways of doing things that you never might have thought of before. It was very interactive ( for the most part, but the less interactive aspects of the course were informative and satisfying in their own way), and the hands-on experiences, scenarios, and situations really gave me a new perspective on different kinds of leadership and how to use them effectively. PREPESSENTIALS™ was a great course."

"I just wanted to write a quick note to say thank you again for giving me the opportunity to participate in the Prepskills course PREPESSENTIALS™. It has really helped boost my self confidence in essay writing and has diminished the stress that essays have always caused me! Our teacher was excellent and I really enjoyed our class discussions. Although it was a solid two weeks of work in the summer, I nonetheless did enjoy myself and do feel that it has benefited me for the future."

Anne Cheung, Mother, St. Clement's School

"I was very impressed with the material covered. Veronica thoroughly enjoyed the classes and said it was the ‘best program’… I couldn’t believe she said that! Veronica developed more confidence, and she improved on her thought processes. She can always reference her experience at this program... I also think the teacher Veronica had was terrific, and that made the difference."

"Both boys really enjoy your program. I was a bit surprise of the amount of the daily homework especially the first week. However, the boys did not complain.

Janet Qi, Mother, North York

"My son attended PREPSKILLS® SSAT workshop and PREPWRITE™ two years ago. Not only has he improved academically, he has gained confidence and familiarity in taking the SSAT exam as well as private school application/interview process. He has told me that he enjoyed the PREPSKILLS® sessions because he felt challenged by his peers and that the discussions were interesting. He felt he had learned a lot from the sessions. Now, two years later, he asked if he could take a PREPSKILLS® program again in the summer while normally he would hate tutorials of any sort. He sure knows what is good for him!"

Susan, Parent, Etobicoke

"We found the PrepWrite program to be both comprehensive and thorough. The step by step teaching on the foundation of each type of essay and the opportunity to practice and critique each one was very helpful. Ms. Julia was very flexible in tailoring the program to specific novels/topics and this made the program interesting. Her positive attitude and enthusiasm for creative writing were reflected in the way she taught each session. Her constant encouragement and development of editing skills made for very productive and valuable sessions."
