Ontario Certified Teachers Make the Difference

"The teacher was highly knowledgeable in the subject matter, as well as the test taking strategies. She was available on an as-needed basis for individual help before and after class. I was most impressed with her ability to relate to my child and the friendly environment she created. We were extremely pleased with our interaction with PREPSKILLS INC. and the staff."

No Price Too High to Give Kids an Edge

"Congratulations on being featured in the National Post article "Taking them Private", November 25, 2002. Competition for entrance to private school is very intense. The skills and strategies that Alex learned were extremely useful and transferable across all disciplines. The SSAT simulation at the end of the course helped him build confidence and gain a better understanding of HOW to take the test. The money was very well spent! Thank you!"

PREPSKILLS Courses Go Beyond Expectations

"Thank you for your kindness and efforts in teaching Sean and Stephen. The PREPSKILLS® course has been a wonderful learning experience. The boys enjoyed the classes. They said that the teacher was very nice and the lessons very thorough and fun. They also enjoyed being with others focused on the same task. The children have truly benefited from the knowledge they have attained."

UTS Standards of Excellence

"What can I say - my wife and I are very pleased at the SSAT test results - 99th percentile! A special thanks to my son's teacher, for his effective and skilled instruction. We think your course made a very tangible difference in the outcome. When we compared the actual SSAT results with my son's scores on your diagnostic test, (written just ten weeks before) we could see the improvement... about a 75 total scaled points increase! For UTS Middle level testing, he exceeded the cut-off scaled score for boys by 24 points and placed in the top ten boys accepted!"

The Spirit of PREPSKILLS

"You are truly wonderful! I started the SSAT process late and you were very helpful, kind and supportive. Thanks for being so accessible and answering my questions promptly, accurately and efficiently. The teacher was excellent. We were offered admission at De La Salle, Havergal, and BSS. Now the challenge is choosing which one! From one mom to another - I want to thank you for all your encouragement and advice, regardless of the outcome! Great quality people at PREPSKILLS®"

"I chose PREPSKILLS® because I felt the individual/small group instruction and coaching would help our son focus better, learn the material more thoroughly and leverage his preparation for the examination. Scott's confidence in himself and his ability to complete the test well increased noticeably. He enjoyed learning the specific strategies for approaching the SSAT test and we know he will employ a more strategic approach to test writing skills in the future."

"My son did the SSAT program on the Internet using the EPREPSKILLS real time on line tutoring. We are very very satisfied with this result. We really really appreciate what you did for him. We think we are very lucky to get help from you. He was also very well prepared for the interview. You did a great job preparing him for all possible questions, especially since he has only been in Canada for a little over a year. He received the 95th percentile overall on his official SSAT!

Kenneth Tan, University of Toronto Schools

"It is difficult to gauge how much Prepskills affected Kevin and Sam's SSAT score. I know it helped as far as getting them used to the examination structure. This allows them to be calm and not feel like their lost at the beginning of the exam thus giving them advantage of time (more time to do work rather than trying to wonder what to do and what is expected). It also helped them in managing the time in writing the exam itself.

"My daughter Natalie was the last group of potential UTS students to write the UTS proprietary format entrance exam. The following year, UTS started to use the SSAT, aligning itself with other private schools.

Cotroneo Family, De La Salle College

"Our experience with Prepskills was nothing short of fantastic. Prepskills put together a comprehensive training and study package for our daughter Olivia that gave her the confidence and skills to complete her test. When we first received the SSAT practice test we thought we could go it alone and never considered hiring a tutor, but Olivia was overwhelmed by the test. Prepskills came in and sent us a wonderful tutor named Samantha. Samantha made Olivia feel comfortable and was able to help Olivia in her trouble areas, we experienced a 30% improvement from the practice test.

Tracy Siklos, Mother, Oakville

"I just wanted to write in to thank you for our recent experience with your company. From Alexandra in the office, who really went out of her way to accommodate our special circumstances and basically designed a custom program for us, to Sandra, our teacher, who was excellent and so helpful with my son, we are very pleased and appreciative. We were in a new and unique situation for us applying to a US prep school (private independent school), and your people really came through to help my son prepare for his upcoming SSAT/ISEE exam.
