Importance of Attending a Workshop
A workshop is a great way
for someone to learn about a particular subject, learn new projects, and
methods in order to better you. Attending workshops can help students achieve success
in their academic environment by putting these skills into practice. Therefore,
if your child is having trouble studying, lacking organizational skills, or
just planning on what high school to attend, these workshops can help.
Here are a few suggestions from H.O.P.E Centre to get you on your way.
Evaluation High School Entrance Exams
Competition is stiff when trying to get accepted to your preferred schools, so getting a head start can increase the chances of success. We offer early intervention dates in order to prepare your child and work on their weaknesses. We conduct a series of Canadian based exams which evaluate your child on reading, language, mathematics, vocabulary, spelling, language/writing conventions, computation and numerical estimation. This will give parents an indication of where the student lies academically. Based on these results, we set the guidelines for our team to start working with the student.

Study and Organizational Workshop
Does your child understand how to study material and how to stay organized in doing so?<./p>Based on past experiences, we have noticed that most students lack studying and organization skills. These skills are of paramount importance for an individual in order to succeed academically, as well as in everyday life. This workshop allows students to specifically work towards acquiring and mastering essential organizational skills. The process results in the kids using these skills towards achieving personal and academic success.
