I thought I would provide an insider's look on how I am marketing and preparing my curricula for a college readiness boot camp seminar. I am uniquely positioned for this because I have the background of teaching at the college level for the last 12+ years and I have been helping people prepare for college via my small business of essay and college resumes.
Some of the content I am pulling together to speak from will include how to prepare for college for the Freshman and Sophomore aged-student – the ones who can begin studying and making big changes to their grades before graduation. It talks about:

I wonder if it would have impressed upon me the difference between a lot of student loans and no student loans – as I have said in previous posts, in college, I got all A’s and even my MBA was all A’s (just one B+ from the course I took in London – let’s just say traversing the Scottish countryside from the lowlands to the highlands in a rental car with my best friends was way more important than finishing that term paper…) but if I had applied myself in high school to at least a slightly more degree than I did, I could have received scholarships and more. I always try to focus this on my students now and a big part of why I am working towards my certification in Math Grades 7-12 in New York State is so that I can help other students on the cusp recognize their potential and try harder to do great in high school to prepare them for college.
What do you think about these seminar planning points? Do you wish you had had something like this when younger?
