参加希尔公益项目,让自己脱颖而出

参与活动还可由希尔美国专家组提供大学申请推荐信

 

一位美国名校招生委员会负责人说:中国学生的最大问题就是,此学生和彼学生之间没有差别。他们的GPA, SAT和托福TOEFL成绩往往都很好,但是申请材料一模一样,特长都是钢琴、跳舞、绘画之类,毫无特色;文书更是写得千人一面,观点幼稚,表达平庸,显示出他们想象力的贫乏和思维的格式化,像是同一个工厂生产出来的机器人。

一位美国资深大学申请顾问说,他专门手把手教中国学生如何申请到常青藤名校,百发百中。他说:哈佛每年会收到几万份学生申请,但是只有极少数可以被录取,被选中的往往不是成绩最好的,而是最特别的。他为中国学生做大学申请咨询,主要是协助每个学生找到他自己的独特性,打造自己的品牌。你想从成千上万份申请材料中脱颖而出,就得让自己与众不同。首先确定你喜欢什么,然后专注于这件事,不管它多么微不足道,在这个领域发挥你的特长,显示独特的自我。

一位儿童教育家说, 协助孩子发现自己的兴趣和特长,并鼓励他们在喜欢的领域不断探索和深化,这本该是家长从孩子一出生就该做的事,但是中国家长们通常做的不是让自己的宝宝变得特别,而是变得跟别人一样。别人家的孩子在学英语,我们也得学;别人家的孩子上钢琴课,我们也不能落后。跟别人一样,他们会更有安全感。

一位美国高中教导主任说,申请大学时,很多亚裔学生来问我:我该报考什么专业呢?我说:首先要考虑你喜欢什么。他们大多都回答,不知道自己对什么感兴趣,也不知道自己擅长什么。孩子无兴趣、无特长,家长要负责,因为他们错过了孩子小时候的各种敏感期,没有花心思去发现孩子天性中独一无二的部分,没有协助孩子放大自己的特别之处,把孩子从特别变成平庸。

有一句话说得好,人生下来都是原创,慢慢地活成了盗版.如何在申请高中、大学、研究生时,让自己脱颖而出呢?希尔教育致力于培养学生独一无二的领导力,帮助每一个学生打造自己的品牌,让学生脱颖而出。

为此,希尔教育推出了一些列公益活动,包括慈善活动志愿者、助理教师、俱乐部组织者等。所有这些活动一律免费参与。让学生在参与公益活动的同时,增加社会经验,提升其领导力,从而形成自己独特的背景,为高中、大学、研究生申请添加筹码。

公益活动一:青少年慈善家

有一颗热与助人的心?希尔教育为学生和学生家庭提供了多样化的慈善平台,让孩子有机会参与到希尔慈善活动中,成长为青少年慈善家。希尔慈善项目目前包括中国贫困学生助学项目、非洲贫困学生助学项目、以及贫困家庭医疗资助项目。通过捐款和募捐,我们就可以帮助一个学生支付一年的学杂费,其中包括书本,文具和修理桌椅。我们还可以帮助穷人改善健康状况。希尔教育与纽约Dr. Xu徐医生合作,徐医生每年志愿去非洲为当地人义务看病,并带上我们捐赠的药品,为改善当地落后的医疗环境尽绵薄之力。感兴趣的学员不仅可以通过希尔慈善平台捐款、募捐,更有机会与徐医生一起,去非洲参加慈善活动,或去中国贫困地区参加义教活动。

通过参与希尔的慈善活动,我们的学员不仅积累了慈善经验,并且通过在朋友、家人、同学、邻居里面组织募捐活而全面培养自己的领导力,成为一个真正意义上的“青年慈善家”。这种慈善不是一时的善心,不是一种短暂的作秀,而是坚持不懈的努力;不是一个心血来潮的创意,而是学生高尚品格的重要组成部分。在这样一个尊重慈善的社会里,这样的经历必将让孩子受益终生。

公益活动二:青少年作家

如果你喜欢写作,却苦于没有一个合适的展示平台,那欢迎加入希尔青少年作家俱乐部。我们可以在我们网站HillsEdu.com上免费帮学生创建编辑帐号,成为希尔青少年写作俱乐部的撰稿人。所有成员可以尽情投稿,我们还将定期举办征文大赛活动,对优胜者提供奖学金。

公益活动三:青少年商业领导者

想知道希尔学员James成功申请进入Princeton的经验么?商业实践经历在这里起到了关键作用。如果孩子对商科感兴趣,家长应该让孩子尽早培养商业领导力,为以后的人生发展奠定基础。希尔教育为学生提供丰富的商业实践活动,让学生有机会参与商业运行的每一个环节,包括市场营销、质量控制、技术支持、团队管理等。只要孩子有兴趣,都可以成为希尔商业实践活动的一员。

公益活动四:青少年俱乐部组织者

孩子有自己的兴趣?爱好画画?爱好体育?爱好计算机编程?不管孩子有什么兴趣,希尔教育都可以为孩子提供一个平台,让孩子组织成立自己的兴趣俱乐部,召集兴趣相仿的小伙伴,开展自己感兴趣的活动。希尔教育将为各种俱乐部免费提供活动场所、免费专业指导等服务。抢先报名,更可成为俱乐部的创始人,获得锻炼领导力的独特机会。

希尔教育为学生打造一个独特的公益平台,让学生脱颖而出。通过参与以上希尔公益活动,我们的专家还将为申请大学的学生提供推荐信,包括美国医生、教授等等。

Join FREE Hills Edu Clubs,Gain Incomparable Leadership Skills

A renowned enrollment professor once said:“a lot of academic advanced student’s biggest dilemma is that there is no difference from one student from another. Their GPA, SAT TOEFL scores are all stellar,but their applications are almost always identical. Often their aficionados of piano, dance, or other form of fine arts, with no pizzazz;the essays are also a dime a dozen, with juvenile viewpoints and mediocre expressionism, depicting their manufactured creativity and critical thinking skills, much like that of a factory produced robot.” 

A senior college application and advisement professor once said that he specialized in helping these academic advanced students in getting the academic advanced students into Ivy League colleges, with a 100% success rate. He said:“Every year, Harvard will receive tens of thousands student applications,but will only accept a small percentage of that number, and the accepted members are often not the ones with best scores, but the ones with the most individuality, the ones that are like no one else. ” When he consulted for the academic advanced students, he primarily focused on helping each student find his or her specialty, molding an individual into a brand. You want to break away from the mold that encompasses hundreds of thousands of students applying for college every year, and become a true individual among the modern youth. At first, a student’s interests and talents are determined, followed by focusing on these topics, no matter how seemingly miniscule, providing an outlet to harvest one’s talent, maturing it into a productive and blooming sense of self.

A youth educator once said that to help children identify a sense of self in terms of interests and talents, and furthermore encourage them to explore and evolve these abilities,this is something that parents should harvesting within children since birth. However, the academic advance student’s parents will often not only neglect this, but wish for their children to change into copies of other people’s children. “Other parents’ children are learning English, ours must learn English; other parents’ children are taking piano lessons, our children must not fall behind.” By having their children match that of others, the academic advance student’s parents feel a sense of security.

A high school counselor said that during college application submission times, students will often ask her “what should I out down as my major?” to which she replies “first figure what your interests are.” Often they will reply with uncertainty towards their interests and specialties. If a child has no hobbies or talents, the parents are responsible, because they missed out on several important and sensitive periods of their children’s lives. Without paying attention and care into such an integral part of a child’s life and supporting the development of the child’s sense of self, limiting the child into a future of mediocrity.

There’s a famous saying, “humans are born into originality, slowly trickling into counterfeit --- as parents, if we’re not careful, we produce counterfeit products.”


Hills Edu provides tutoring for various subjects over summer and school year, helping student with less than ideal scores and student want study ahead of time. The program creates a solid and healthy foundation for its students’ upcoming school years.

Hills Edu also provides high school students with assistance and counseling for their college application. (College Planning Consultation),with senior College Planning advisors and one on one consultation provided for student’s college application processes; securing the child’s interests and talents, choosing the most suitable school and career path, avoiding any troublesome paths.

Aside from the above services, Hills Edu also provides students with the chance to mold one’s individual leadership skills, helping every student create his or her brand, standing out, and blooming as young adults. Because of this, Hills Edu presents students with extracurricular activities, including volunteering work, teacher assistance, and club membership and leadership. All of these activities are free to join and lets students upon completion, builds up experiences, gains leadership skills. By forming an individual’s unique background, a student’s value is increased in the perspective of colleges.

Activity 1:Youth Philanthropist

Have a compassionate and helping heart? Hills Edu provides students and students’ families with many charitable platforms, giving children a chance to volunteer for the betterment of their respective communities, letting them become “young philanthropists.” Currently Hills Edu’s charitable subjects include help for Chinese students with difficult economic standings, relief for Africans riddled with hardships, and providing healthcare for families living in strife. Through donations and fundraising,we can support a student’s educational needs, including books, school supplies, and adequate desk and chair. We are also able to improve the conditions of the less economically fortunate. Hills Edu, in collaboration with New York’s renowned Doctor Xu,support African missions where volunteer doctors provide healthcare for the locals and put our donated medicines to good use,improving the detriment of a developing healthcare system in the area. Interested students can not only help the cause through donations and fundraising, but has the opportunity to follow a doctor into Africa to experience the volunteering activity firsthand, or traverse to poor areas of China to help and accumulate experiences and worldviews.
Through active participation in volunteering activities provided by Hills Edu, our students not only accumulate experiences in chartable acts, but through working with friends, family, classmates, and neighbors gain invaluable maturity in one’s overall leadership skills, becoming one’s true ideal of a “young philanthropist.” This philanthropy is not a based on a moment of charity, nor is it a short term relief, but based on an unrelenting perseverance”. Not only is it a creation of passion, it is an integral component of a quality student. In the society that we live in today that recognizes the importance of charitable acts, these sorts of experiences will have an impact on the course of a child’s entire life.

Activity 2:Youth Authorship

On our official website HillsEdu.com we provide student with free online accounts, becoming our students’ publisher. All members are free to submit to their hearts content; we also provide specific dates for contests, where winners are awarded scholarships.

Activity 3:Youth Business Leaders

Want to know Hill Edu student James’ successful application process into Princeton? Business experiences are integral in this field. If a child has interest toward business, parents should let children harvest this interest into marketable leadership skills, providing a decent foundation for the students to expand on in the future. Hills Edu provides students with an enriching experience and realistically marketable skills and activities, letting students a chance to participate in business activities and learn in every phase of a business process, including marketing, quality management, skill support, group management, etc. As long as the students are interested, their personal inclinations and skills may be harvested in Hills Edu’s business activities.

Activity 4:Youth Club Membership Organizer

Do your children have their individual interests? Do they love drawing? Sports? Computer programming and design? No matter what a child’s interests are, Hills Edu will provide a platform for that hobby to bloom into a future, giving them a chance to create a club according to their own interests. Gathering students with similar interests expands one’s horizon in an appreciated activity. Hills Edu provides, free of charge, a venue for these club activities and assistance from educating professionals. Being the first to grasp the chance to enroll, and grab the opportunity to be a club’s creator, gaining the incomparable experiences of leadership.

Hills Edu helps students create a unique and unprecedented platform for their interests and talents, breaking them away from the mold of what a modern college student should be. Through joining the previously mentioned activities, our professionals (renowned medical doctors, NYU professors, etc.) will also provide college bound student with the advisement they need to have successful futures and careers.

Biography

I. SUMMARY OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience stems primarily from the following two professional endeavors: an internship managing a branch for IvyInsiders that focused on the SAT I exam and part-time ESL instruction for an international CRO at which I also held a full-time position. I also tutored privately on a number of occasions while studying at Princeton - relevant topics included the verbal and writing sections of the SAT I exam, college essay composition, middle school English, and AP level English.

II. PERFORMANCE METRICS - IVYINSIDERS

My classroom students improved by an average of 120 points per subject, from 590 to 710. (Please be advised I was unable to filter the numbers by subject; in addition, these figures include classroom courses taught by a tutor I hired.) I also provided one-on-one tutoring sessions for 2 additional students, focusing on the SAT I verbal and writing sections; their scores grew by an average of 130 points per subject, from 630 to 760. Notable schools attended by my students include UPenn, NYU Stern, and Georgetown.

III. TEACHING STYLE/PERSONAL STATEMENT

Whether teaching a classroom or tutoring one-on-one sessions, I learned that connecting with and engaging your students is of utmost important. IvyInsiders provided a curriculum that encouraged participation and fostered a "beat-the-test" mentality that many of my students appreciated. On top of that, I frequently tried to apply the strategies I taught to relatable, everyday scenarios, sprinkling in some humor where I could. During my one-on-one tutoring sessions, I would allow my students to apply newly-learned reading comprehension techniques to magazine articles they were interested in. This was especially effective when I later tutored AP level English and college essay composition.

As a teacher, I believe my personality and ability to engage students is what sets me apart. As a marketing professional at GENEWIZ, I had the opportunity to structure and teach an ESL class for the Chinese employees. I applied much of what I learned from my previous experience to constructing this course: for example, to help improve my students' oral English, I focused on interesting (and sometimes controversial) video content to drive interest and facilitate discussion. In addition, I scheduled occasional field trips (for Chinese trainees in the USA) to provide more interesting environments for them to practice their skills.

In conclusion, I have experienced firsthand the importance of establishing trust and encouraging engagement to effective teaching. Even as a student, I gained an avid appreciation for the teachers that made me truly care about the topics they taught. Here, I'd like to invoke one of my favorite quotes: "Is it what the teacher teaches, or what the student learns?" In order to align the two, both parties must be on the same page.

数学教育的特点

--- by Prof. Zhao

我们常说数学是重要的. 但她道底有多重要呢? The Washington Post 的专栏作家Valerie Strauss在她最近的文章中指出: It is crucial to our economic survival that we do better in mathematics and science. 鉴于数学在经济和科学发展中的重要性,数学教育一直是中等教育的重中之重。数学在中等教育中的重要性也反应在下述几个方面:数学教育惯穿于整个中等教育之中;数学包含于几乎所有考试中, 比如 NJASK, HSPA, ACT, SAT, 等等。此外,数学成绩也是大学申请材料的一个重要组成部分。因此, 学好数学是轻年学子通往成功的必由之路。

尽管数学的重要性,一个现在普便接受的观点是:美国的中学数学教育是失败的。近期的 The Washington Post 直接指出,美国的前10% 的学生的数学能力仅相当于亚洲中等水平学生的数学能力。这一令人失望的现实表明,在这个全球竟争的时代,你的孩子很可能已输在了起跑线上了。自然,在学生积极努力学好学校所授知识的同时,努力提高孩子的数学能力就成为在于他人竟争过程中胜出的一个重要手段。

IvyLeague Educational Services 是一个以补充学校教育不足为己任的教育服务机构。其目的在于帮助学生在在激烈的竟争中取得优秀的在校成绩和优秀的SAT成绩。这些好成绩是申请进如好大学的先决条件。此外, 提高学生的数学能力并使其在与他人竟争的过成中处于领先地位也是我们的一个重要任务。

我们多年的教学实践表明,当前的学校数学教育存在下列问题。首先, 缺乏合格的教师。, 有些教师的能力不能胜任其所承担的教学任务。这已是许多学生家长的共识。其次,几乎所有的教师都不教授学生用正确的和逻辑的方发完成作业。 其直接的结果是学生的作业看上去向涂鸭。研究表明,这是学生在考试中犯粗心大意错误的一个重要原因。再次,学生举一反三的能力差。这些问题是导至学生(甚至是数学很好的学生)在各种数学考试中不能取得好成绩的一个重要原因。有鉴于此,我们的数学教育专家对不同学术背景的学生设计了三种教育方案。

提高数学技能方案 . 从根本上讲,提高学生的数学技能是撤底解决当前学校数学教育中存在问题的根本方法。数学技能是指顺利完成数学活动的一种活动方式,往往表现为完成数学任务所需要的动作协调和自动化. 简单的说, 数学技能是指看到问题便知道是什么问题以及怎么解决和具体解决这个问题的能力. 这正是大多数学生所不具有的。在提高学生数学技能方面,我们的教育专家遵循教育学基本原理和数几十年教学经验, 在教学中有效指导学生理解和掌握有关数学的基本概念,基本技能,和基本方法. 针对性地设计作业,采取比较、思辨、改错、判断等方法,加以专门突破和强化,并在后来的练习、复习时,设计有关练习,有针对性地给予弥补。我们的实践表明,这是一个非常有效的方法。经过一段时间的学习,我们的学生在学校的数学成绩均名列前矛。不仅如此,他们的数学表现也得到了学校老师的高度评价。

随堂跟进方案 众所周知,学生的GAP在大学申请中占有极大的比例。因此,如何保持较高的GPA也就是家长们所关心的一个问题了。我们的随堂跟进方案就是为解决这个问题而设立的。这一方案具有即时性特点:随时跟进学生学习进度并给予及时引导。在帮助学生掌握所学知试的基础上,帮助学生提升学习信心,调整学习考试状态,改善学习习惯,从而达到帮助学生提高和维持高GPA的目的. 目前,参加此学习方案的学生均保持A或A+的成绩,既使有的学生原来的数学基础较差。

SAT Math应试培训方案 SAT 考试培训是我们的一个重要的工作。其目的是使考生能在最短的时间内取得最好的成绩。为达此目的,我们的教育专家采用了基于教育学和心理学的教学方案。第一,我们严格地准确地讲述有关概念,方法,和技巧。教师掌握学生每阶段的学习效果,根据学生测试结果制定针对性教学方案,使学生的考分提升更为显著。 这一策略成功地解决了考生会不会解题的问题。第二,我们的复习材料要比真实的SAT 考试略难。我们的学生在试后反馈中都说"考试内容太简单了"。这一策略确保考生能自如地应付千变万化的考试内容并从心理上战胜SAT. 第三,诊治粗心大意。对几乎所有考生来说,粗心大意是他们取得高分的拦路虎。在长期的教学中,我们研发了一个极其有效的克服粗心大意的方法。这一方法的掌握,使得考生在SAT 考试中成功地打掉了这只拦路虎。这些方法的综合应用确实取得了惊人的效果。刚刚过去的金秋10月份SAT 数学考试是验证我们的教育理论和教学方法的季节,也是我们享受胜利的时刻!在SAT I 和 SAT II 考试中,我们所有学生的数学平均成绩是790。近70%的学生取得800满分成绩!

教育引领成长,学习铸就未来. 读书要读好书,求学要跟名师. 如果你认同我们的教学理念和教学方法. 为了你或者你孩子的辉煌未来, 让我们一起精心地和有效地 准备吧。

Biography

Dr. Hayes holds a Ph.D. in U.S. History from Rutgers University, where he earned membership in Phi Alpha Theta, the national history honor society, was on the dean’s list, and was awarded numerous fellowships and awards. He currently works at Rutgers, where he is the Director of the Department of History’s Undergraduate Writing Program. In that role, he is responsible for helping undergraduate students develop their writing, critical thinking and research skills. He helps them hone their grammar, sentence structure, mastery of vocabulary and organization. They learn how to make solid arguments and write strong, clear theses, skills that are applicable to writing in any field.

With nearly a decade of teaching at the college level, he also has several years’ experience teaching the SAT and SAT II. He has led hundreds of students to success on the SAT, with dozens scoring well above 2100. Score improvements of 300 points or better are common and achievable with student dedication. Students he has taught and tutored have been accepted to schools such as Columbia, Yale, Princeton, the University of California at Berkeley, Rutgers, Vassar, Harvard, Brown, Boston College, New York University, Vassar, the University of Virginia and many more of the nation’s top public and private colleges and universities.

In addition to his expertise in writing and language, he excels at teaching the SAT II Subject Test in U.S. History, as well as the AP U.S. History Exam. His approach to history engages the students by bringing the information to life through the telling of stories and exploring the lives of people who lived during the times we discuss. Emphasizing broad themes throughout American history, he helps students move away from the view that history is simply facts to memorize and forget. He breaks down these exams into manageable parts and presents simple strategies students will use to overcome their anxieties and intimidation to succeed on the tests. Ample supervised practice and mock exams ensure that students will be absolutely comfortable come test day.
