Adriene Donkin-Verschuren, Richmond Hill

"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."

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."

Kevin, Father, Richmond Hill

"My wife and I are actually very glad we signed the kids up for this program because we noticed that their essay writing skills have quadrupled in quality. They are writing so well now and this is all specifically as a result from Prepskills and the sessions with Tony, their teacher. We gauged this from the time they finished the last school year (2008-09) until last week (2009-10 school year). The work is day and night! Thank you."

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!"

Daniel Zhou, University of Toronto Schools

"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.
