THE COLLEGE ADMISSION LANDSCAPE TODAY

Getting accepted to college today is harder and more competitive than it has ever been.  The best universities in the country routinely receive more and more applications each year than the previous.  While there are many factors that determine admission, no single factor gets a foot in the door quite like a high standardized test score.  The GPA, extracurricular activities, community service, unique life experiences - all of these are important but with one crucial difference.  They're a lot more difficult to change or cultivate.  A good GPA takes years of hard work and concentration and requires perseverance in both good and bad classes.  There's no magic formula for guaranteed success.  With standardized test scores, however, the story is different.  With the right commitment, preparation, and mindset, a score can change in a matter of hours and elevate a previously sub-par candidate to acceptance status.  Of all the factors driving the decision to accept or reject, none is more subject to change and improvement than the standardized test score.  This is a fact.

WHY CHOOSE YOUR EXAMINED LIFE? 

What parents want more than anything is the peace of mind of knowing they've done everything they could to set their children up for good lives.  This is exactly what YEL provides - peace of mind.  Peace of mind that your child is receiving personalized, caring attention and the best test preparation available.  Peace of mind that your child is building the confidence and skills needed to dramatically improve test taking abilities.  Peace of mind that your child is maximizing his or her chances of admission to the nation's best universities.  And of course, peace of mind that you have done what you could to ensure that your legacy, hard work, and achievements are carried on to the next generation as well.  

WHAT IS THE YEL DIFFERENCE?

The test prep industry is vast and much of it corporate.  Tutoring centers like Huntington, Kaplan, Sylvan, and a slew of others have established test prep machinery and have become masters at grinding students through it in order to maximize billable hours.  There's no real personalization or investment in your child that occurs there.  Your child is just like every other child, exposed to the same program, receiving the same level of attention, and overall, of not much significance or importance  At YEL, however, it is different.  It is not about quantity but quality.  Each student and each session is unique.  The YEL tutoring experience as a whole is much more than an education in test taking, strategies and tips.  Rather, it is a relationship that addresses the needs of the whole child and ensures that each student leaves each session feeling more confident about the test, about his or her abilities, and about the future in general.  It is a profoundly competent and convenient experience, but one that is also efficient.  Results and improvements become tangible right away.  By investing in YEL test preparation, you are both maximizing your child's chances of getting into a top tiered university and providing a tutoring experience unlike any other.
