JUST A FEW OF THE THINGS YOU WILL LEARN
POWERFUL STUDY TRICKS
Grades are job #1. So we focus a significant amount of both books on how to develop skills and strategies for excelling in the classroom. Some of the tips came from the most successful academic tutors in America. We even reveal tricks some very…well, enterprising but highly successful students use to bump their overall GPA’s by as much as half a letter grade. Imagine turning all those 85-86% test scores into 90%’s.
Why You Must Choose Your Friends
There is a huge difference between choosing your friends and being chosen. The most successful high school students choose their friends. They choose friends with similar academic and post-high school goals. Students who allow other kids to choose them as friends often times end up hanging out with kids who will distract them from their goals. Both books provide insights and tools on how to win the social game with self-confidence and purpose.
Unique Non-Academic Activities That Colleges Love To See
Grades are not enough. The story of a 4.0 student who gets rejected by several colleges is a cliché. It happens all the time. Colleges want the well-rounded and accomplished students. We provide ideas and examples of incredible opportunities for achievement which can be accomplished quickly. A student’s high school story must demonstrate results beyond the classroom. We provide tons of examples of how to write that compelling chapter.
