September News from ColPrep Tutoring
Welcome back to school! We are excited to celebrate our 12th year supporting Chapel Hill-Carrboro and surrounding area students! We look forward to working with your family to provide private tutoring for classroom subjects, private or group test prep, or college application and essay support this school year.
In some general news, we are happy to announce that we are donating a portion of our profits to local Parent Teacher Student Associations this calendar year! When you sign up with us from now until the end of the calendar year, you'll be asked which school your student attends, and we will donate $5 to his/her high school's PTSA fund.
We are also happy to share that Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools are offering the PSAT on October 16th to all juniors and to sophomores who register and pay by September 6. We offer a PSAT strategies seminar to help prepare juniors for the test, and we are happy to open the seminar up to any sophomores who might be taking the test this year as well. There aren't many seats left, so register while spots remain! High scoring juniors can qualify for National Merit Scholarships, so it makes sense to prepare for this test!
We also offer pre-ACT Previews and Assessments to 10th grade students taking the pre-ACT in October. Our specialists are happy to meet with your student to share general strategies for approaching the test, some guided practice, and tips for improvement. We are happy to schedule private PSAT sessions as well.
College application and essay work is in full swing and we are loving it! Thanks for giving us the opportunity to work with your families during this exciting time. Senior families, if you would still like to register for college essay assistance, you can do so here on our site.
I'll close this note with a testimonial from one of our families who spent the summer working with our tutors. As always, we are very grateful for your referrals and support. Feel free to email or call at any time with questions about how we might best support your student this school year.
I can’t thank my son's ColPrep tutors enough for the huge difference they've made in his test scores! When he started working with them, he was struggling in several sections. In addition to helping him build those skills, they've also taught him the strategies and tools needed to conquer the ACT and SAT. His test scores have increased significantly and we couldn’t be more thrilled!
