I want to write and thank you for your help with my son’s SSAT exam. He had a huge improvement from his initial exam scores. He was offered a place at St Georges but we ended up picking Prince of Wales Mini instead. Once again, appreciate your guidance.
The feedback you provided after this SSAT Prep program was very helpful! [My daughter] worked very hard on her math and her writing and she scored well enough in the SSAT to get accepted at both YHS and CHS… Your program was very helpful because you identified challenge areas as well as areas of relative strength, and you provided specific feedback, which ended up being very motivating for her!
You will be pleased to know that my son did much better on the SSAT than his diagnostic test. Your efforts paid off.
Our son really enjoyed the course, which is saying something, as he is not predisposed to enjoying anything even distantly related to school. He spoke quite highly of you as a teacher, too; something that is beyond rare for him.
I thank you, as does our entire family, for providing such a positive experience for him.
It means a great deal to us.
I wanted to say thank you for the quality education you are providing to my daughter at Pear Tree. Thanks to your classes and guidance, she is more confident in her math skills and seems to be on the right track to build a strong foundation for math in high school.
My son really likes your approach to the class, and he is looking forward to the next class.
My daughter came out of her second session with you and said “I just learned so much math!” – she was really excited. Thank you for being such a good teacher!
It occurred to me that I never got back to you about the boys’ admission. They were both successful in getting into Southpointe Academy in Delta, BC. Thanks again to you and Laura for all your help.
Paul has been working with our son on his preparation for an overseas school entrance exam since September 2015. The test demands strong writing skills and comprehension ability. Our son has been improving due to Paul’s strength in encouraging and guiding our son’s critical thinking and analytical skills. Equally important is Paul’s ability to connect with our son by engaging him with good questions and seeking smart responses. Finally, as a consummate educator his willingness to listen to parents’ concerns and effecting the desired outcome put us as parents at ease. We are pleased with our son’s progress and we look forward to more of Paul’s positive input to our son’s preparation for the exam.
My son relates to you and your teaching method.
Thanks Paul. He was telling me about the vocabulary in the car. We appreciate all the techniques you’ve shared with him. You were a great match for him, and I know he learned a lot.
My son still treasures your assigned readings from last year. I can’t begin to express how much impact your sessions have had. I think he was little disappointed he couldn’t continue the sessions but he’s been lucky to have awesome teachers in the program this year to keep him engaged with school.
