预告下周六家教实例讲座Parenting seminar on next Sat by Dr. Peter Jiang from 12-1:30pm
Author of the book Dream college admissions made possible  
A reflection and advice from a Chinese parent with Ivy league college students. Here is the seminar introduction with Dr. Jiang’s own words: ”My wife and I are first-generation immigrants to the United States. We did not have formal classroom experience in this country. It took us many years of trial and error to navigate the American educational system. If our children can do it, so can any student in America. It is our sincere hope that our reflections provide some guidance for all present and future parents in preparing children for their dream colleges.” At the end of the seminar, you can purchase his book onsite and there will be a book signing in the classroom.
