It bridges the gap between content learned at school and the test-taking strategies and skills required to maximize the scoring potential of every student we work with. This course is best suited for your child as it provides additional exercises and skill building over a longer period of time. Students find that proper preparation and skill-building over time leads to greater confidence with practice over time, leading to the greatest score increase and success.

“Part of the preparation I do with students is have them give a quick ‘elevator pitch’ to each other. I ask what they remember about each other’s pitches. If no one remembers what you said, you are not creating a lasting impression. Therefore, you want the student to be authentic, poised without sounding coached, self assured, transparent and engaging.”

~Joanna Severino, Educator, Founder & President, PREPSKILLS

Practice your elevator pitch until you master it, in order to portray your best unique self in a memorable way to school administrators.
