ACT Science Booster

Designed for juniors just beginning ACT prep as well as those who have been practicing but feel like they're in need of a fresh approach to the ACT Science section. This workshop arms students with easy-to-grasp strategies that enable them to quickly scan passages for key pieces of information, predict certain types of questions, and save time while answering more confidently.

Speaking events: I love 'em.
Got a particular need? An idea?
Let me know.

Here are a few events I've done in the past:


Think Before You Post: College with a Digital Footprint

This workshop is all about raising students' awareness of how their activities online can bring about consequences, both positive and negative, in everything from college admissions to job interviews to the US legal system. Check out some sample slides.

Next Stage: Considerations for College-Bound Artists

This workshop is about expanding families' awareness of the different types of opportunities and requirements for participating in the arts during college. The length of the presentation is scalable, depending on the space and audience members present. Check out some sample slides.

 Get Started, Write Now!

The essay presentation has two different versions: one for helping students who are just getting started, and one for those who are looking for ways to really strengthen the material that they already have. I like to do group critiques of a couple of different sample essays, as well, to give families the perspective from the other side of the admissions desk. I also spend some time on how to write and manage the supplemental writing, which is often a piece left out of many college essay workshops. Check out some sample slides.
