THE ADMISSIONS LANDSCAPE

Standardized test scores remain a critical factor for admissions and scholarship decisions, even within an expanding test-optional landscape. Each and every year, low scores prevent countless deserving students from being accepted to their top-choice schools. Committing to a preparation plan that maximizes these scores can make the difference between acceptance and denial, between free money and a steeper price tag for college.

METHODS

Our highly attuned instruction creates a sense of ownership over the process, laying out the framework to meet or exceed a student’s potential while promoting intellectual and emotional growth, improving study skills, building self-esteem and fostering character traits that will outlast the test preparation process.

We place extraordinary emphasis on the mental/psychological components of preparation. Poor performance is often the result of an overwhelming sense of pressure, intimidation, and anxiety. We understand the way negative thoughts and self-doubt sabotage progress and prevent sustained attention to the task at hand. By teaching metacognitive strategies and the management of emotions- and by defining success incrementally- my approach helps to build a resilient and reliable mindset that replaces fear and anxiety with sureness and focus, empowering the student to apply all he or she has learned calmly, confidently, and consistently.
