The New York Times

HERE we go again. At Harvard, Emory, Bucknell and other schools around the country, there have been record numbers of applicants yearning for an elite degree. They’ll get word in the next few weeks. Most will be turned down.


What tutoring and the education system

DOES NOT teach your child...

Here are some questions to ponder:
Is your child disenchanted with the education system?
Should information flow in just one direction?
Should students be the ones asking the questions?



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."
