"Hi, my name is Veronica Pang and I’m currently attending UTS, also known as the University of Toronto Schools. Let me tell you this. I’m not part of the administration there, so I really have no concrete idea how they decide who to let in, but I do have the wealth of the actual experience on my hands, and I am here to share it with you.

Alexandre Nossovskoi, Western's BMOS program

"I am delighted to say, that even though I did not gain entry into all of the schools I had in mind, PREPSKILLS undoubtedly gave me the push in mathematics that I needed (brought those marks up into the 90s), increased my essay writing speed (English marks hit the 90s) and taught me many important skills concerning multiple choice tests (at least a 50% increase in speed and an immeasurable gain in the amount of intuitive logic one has when writing these tests.)

Sara Thorfinnson, Northeastern University

"When I realized that I wanted to go to Northeastern University in Boston starting next fall, I also realized that I would probably have to write the SATs. The Prepskills SAT preparation course greatly prepared me for writing the SATs. The one on one teacher-student environment allowed for the individual attention needed to improve my weaknesses.

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."

Jenny, University of Toronto Schools

"Frankly, when I was first introduced to PREPSKILLS®, I thought it was just another preparation program that parents send their kids to in a frenzy, afraid that their own preparation plan wasn’t strong enough. After experiencing the benefits of PREPSKILLS®, I realized that I was partly right- the PREPSKILLS® staff taught me things that my parents would never have even thought of teaching me, but it was better than what even commercials described other programs as.

Blake Barbieri, Kleinburg

"Hi my name is Blake, I really liked PrepSkills because it did exactly that it prepared me for the SAT’s. Being a Canadian student I was unaware of how the American questions would be asked. But through constant practice prepskills had me saying “oh another one of those questions”, I believe this really helped me on my SAT test."

Arasan Thangavelu, University of Toronto Schools

"Prepskills was a great experience. It did not feel like tutoring but at the same time my classmates and I learned a lot of things. Our awesome teacher taught us the concepts thoroughly and very well. They also provided a lot of helpful links. Their simulation tests felt exactly like the real one and after we finished it we set goals to improve ourselves. Their second stage seminar helped me prepare for the interview. Overall, the Prepskills course was fun and productive helping me getting into UTS!"

Nicholas Torkos, Pace University

"I took the Prepskills SAT preparation course in an attempt to help get myself ready for a May 2009 SAT. I entered the class knowing the general layout and basics of the test, but lacked actual practice. The course was very thorough, as we dissected the SAT bit by bit. I learned countless techniques and tricks which I used to my advantage on the real SAT, and managed to score a full 200 points higher than my initial score. The teacher was a great pleasure to be around, and was able to assist me with any questions or concerns I had. The materials and booklet provided by the course is a goldmine in SAT knowledge and secrets.
