College Admissions Workshop

May 24, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Gain insider expertise on how to succeed in the college admissions process from Eva Gelman of College Quest and Alex Freedman and Gus Mattammal of Advantage Testing.

We will discuss the steps for a successful college application, common questions about the process, and the standardized testing required/recommended for admission.

Advantage Testing of Pittsburgh develops individually tailored programs that are designed to complement a student’s schoolwork and achieve a consistent strategy for success. We offer both test preparation and academic tutoring, including the development of custom curricula for students who seek academic enrichment beyond what their schools may offer.

Byrd Scholarship, and the Harvard Book Award. While at Harvard, Alex also founded the Fantastick Theater Company, serving as Musical Director and as President, and earned the Arthur Smithies Prize for Outstanding Contribution to Kirkland House. As a tutor, Alex has instructed nearly 1,000 students from all over the world. He is deeply committed to the idea that all students can become better thinkers; whether learning the content of a standardized test or deciphering a complex differential equation, his students have discovered that learning can be rewarding and enjoyable.
