SSAT Testimonial Highlights


Ernest L., The Academy for Gifted Children - P.A.C.E.

"PREPSKILLS has really helped me these past months in preparing for the SSAT. When I first took the simulation test I got a score of 1920. When I finally took the SSAT I got a score of 2121 out of 2130! PREPSKILLS is not like any other SSAT prep class I know of. My teacher was very enthusiastic and supported me all the way, and the way PREPSKILLS teaches is helpful and it lets students absorb information easily. So in all PREPSKILLS helped me prepare for the SSAT. Thank you!"

"Hello everybody at Prepskills,

As a proud mum, I want to thank you all for the dedication in preparing my daughter for her SSAT exam.

She did really well, and decided she did not want to apply to UTS, but to Branksome Hall and to the York school, and she was accepted at both.

"Dear Joanna,

No matter what definition of success children's growth is best supported and geared by, education is obviously the best way to satisfy what they need. Those needs are up to us to discover, then we are able to help them as much as possible to grow at their pace and in their own way.

It's true that "Learning well doesn't always mean scoring high", and scoring high does mean learning well.

"I really wanted to thank you for all your help with the SSAT preparations as it has made all the difference. My SSAT score in math was 797, in verbal it was 722 and reading was 686. I also found your essay coaching to be very useful. All the schools I have applied to have called and asked me to come for an interview, including Upper Canada College, University of Toronto Schools, De La Salle and Crescent. Furthermore, I found that the PREPSKILLS SSAT preparation also helped me do well in public school entrance exams.

Seyon Rajadurai, Upper Canada College (UCC)

“Initially I wanted to apply only to UTS. After taking the time to speak to me and my mom, you encouraged me to consider UCC and Crescent too. I was accepted at UTS, Crescent and UCC. I went through the Prepskills program a couple years ago and now I am in Grade 9 at Upper Canada College. My achievements at UCC have been unique and the last few years at the College will be years that I will never forget. I am taking Advanced French and Extended Math courses at the school this year and I doing quite well academically at the college. I am an avid participant in the various extra-curricular activities that UCC has to offer, including the U-16A basketball team and the U-16A Soccer team. I only got these opportunities thanks to you, as I would not even have applied to this school if it weren't for your advice. "

"Prepskills was invaluable in preparing our son Sam for the admissions process at UCC. His instructor was excellent. She showed him what material to expect on the grade 6 admissions exam, gave him strategies to use for writing the exam, and provided several practice tests so that he felt familiar with the testing procedure on test day. Prepskills also helped him prepare for the interview process with practice mock interviews and helpful tips on how to prepare at home for this critical step, his first ever interview. The results speak for themselves, he was accepted for admission into grade 6 at UCC. Our previous experience with Prepskills was equally successful. Our older son, Max, received excellent advice and training for his interview process for grade 7 admissions to UCC the year before. We would like to thank Joanna and her dedicated knowledgeable instructors for helping our sons successfully navigate the admissions process."
