This Week at Options: Supplement Writing, Canadian Application + Video Interview Workshops, English 12 Provincial Exam Prep + SAT/ACT Core Skills Boot Camp

Here is what’s happening at Options Solutions this week:

Wednesday, January 3rd – Saturday, January 6th (West Vancouver)

Our Core Test Skills Boot Camp classes allow students to prepare for the ACT and/or SAT exam(s) while also building essential academic skills. Students develop their abilities as active readers, learn fundamental grammar, and increase their understanding of essay structure and math concepts. On-going classes prepare students for the ACT and/or SAT by teaching test structure and test-taking strategy. At the same time, students learn skills that translate into success at school in reading, writing and math.

Thursday, January 4th (South Granville)

The application process can be complicated and confusing. Our Canadian Application Workshops are designed for students who want assistance completing their Canadian university and college applications in a constructive and supportive environment. Our educational consultants will lead students through completing the application process step-by-step and answer any questions that arise along the way.

Thursday, January 4th (South Granville), Friday, January 5th (South Surrey), Saturday, January 6th (West Vancouver)

Many Canadian post-secondary programs require a written supplement as part of students’ applications. Our Supplement Writing Workshops help students complete the supplemental writing portions of their university and scholarship applications, including essays, personal statements, activities summaries and resumes. Our writing coaches help participants brainstorm appropriate topics, plan essay outlines, and expand draft documents. We also offer editing advice to ensure students stay on topic and answer each university’s essay prompts concisely and effectively.

Saturday, January 6th (South Surrey)

After working with students on provincial exam prep for many years, we have broken down the study process into a few steps and created a number of programs to assist students with their preparation. Start early & attend a Kick-Start Session for the English 12 Provincial Exam. This 2-hour session provides students with an introduction to exam content and format, literary terms, and strategies to tackle the essays and multiple choice questions.

Saturday, January 6th (West Vancouver)

Our Video Interview Workshop prepares students for the video interview components of university applications, such as those required by the commerce programs at UBC, the University of Toronto, and York University, as well as the engineering programs at the University of Toronto and Waterloo. The session will include a presentation that outlines the main components of video interview requirements, as well as a practical guide for successfully completing those videos.
