Where are those keys?

      Are you forever mislaying keys or forgetting important information or appointments?  “I know I put that paper down somewhere?  But where?”

      Even more daunting is the task of memorizing required information for coursework or credentialing.  Forget the names of the bones in the body – I’m lucky if I can remember how many there are (212?)

      Now imagine learning the contents of the Periodic Chart of the elements in just a few hours, if it were necessary. By heart, so that you could repeat it backwards or forwards at will.

      Impossible?  NOT!

The New TJ Test – 2017

It seems as if a year doesn’t go by that TJ isn’t tinkering with the admissions process: removal of quantitative comparisons, paragraph reordering, on-site SIS (student information sheet) administration, holistic evaluation for 2nd cut, SIS math challenge.  The changes appear to be good overall, but it does keep those of us in the test preparation business on our toes.

HSPT Review

I was happy to receive the following today:

Hi Kate – I realized I never followed up with you about my daughter Allie Vasquez and her results on the HSPT. She worked with you in the Fall of 2016 to brush up on a few areas in preparation for the HSPT in early December. I’m happy to report that she scored in the 99th percentile, received a scholarship to both O’Connell and St. John’s and was also accepted in the St. John’s De La Salle Scholars program – which she will be attending in the fall!

Thanks so much for all your work with her – not only did it improve her performance on the test, but I believe it gave her more confidence overall in her work as well as her test taking abilities. I suspect we’ll be seeing you again in a few years as she gets ready for her college admissions!

 

All the best,

Karen
