6/5 Getting into Stanford, Oxford and other top STEM colleges

How do you compete with other high school students who are Intel winners or international Math Olympiad champions?

2011年新闻报道 芝加哥侨领谈教育: 子女优秀不需虎爸虎妈


如何选择SAT或ACT的最佳考场

不知道哪件事对你来说是更困难的:是回答棘手的多选题呢,还是就在等着这个伤脑筋的考试即将开始的时候你却想上厕所了。你想也许你现在就应该去一下厕所。可惜呀,你却不知道卫生间在哪……

标准化考试是令人非常紧张的事,比如SAT 1推理考试和ACT考试,学生都想尽量避免这些考试。考试时间长达几小时,虽说在漫长的折磨中会有些短暂休息。选择适合的考场会非常有助于你少分心,因而可把更多精力集中在考试上。一般来说,最好的考场就是你感觉最舒服的那个地方。以下五点可以帮你理解什么样的是好考场。

SAT

1.了解你的考场

避免选新地点,因为你要紧张地去找考场房间和卫生间位置。强烈建议要先熟悉各个位置,万一到时急于上厕所呢。方法就是如果可以的话,选择在自己学校的考场考试,或在不同时候多去几次考场去熟悉校园环境。

2.充足睡眠,好好休息

考试前一晚要休息好。充足的休息与清醒的头脑,比靠咖啡因强打精神要好多了。仅仅一晚充足睡眠,人就可以从绝望的状态变成充满希望。考试前夕要避免饮用大量咖啡。对一些人来说,饮用大量咖啡会使人不能享受放松的睡眠。早晨要少喝刺激性饮料,比如大量咖啡或效果很强的功能饮料。你已经够紧张了;没必要再加重紧张感。

3. 啊,不!你又来考了!

选一个你碰不到同学们的考场,因为这能减免你已有的焦虑——你在他们眼里是什么样的学术水平。了解到你所认识的同学们比你的考分高的时候,你就会很容易被吓到。与陌生人在一个考场考试还有一个好处就是你以后可能再也不会碰见这些人了。

4. 带些零食

有些人在紧张的时候就会饿。脑力活动,尤其是高强度的思考活动,是需要能量的。你的大脑想要糖吃,所以你可能会突然发现在考试中就饥肠辘辘。以防你需要补充能量,所以带一些零食。

5.海水不可斗量(或分数不代表一切,或不以成败论英雄)

在内心深处你要深知标准化考试分数仅体现了某些方面的智慧,并不能代表你在学术和生活中其他方面的成就。体积是在三维空间里的一种表示空间大小的度量方法。长方体的体积是通过长乘宽乘高计算得出的。三个数据都是需要的。你在标准化考试上的表现只是你能力的一方面而已。分数并不能体现出你的创造力、创作力、适应能力、建造和修理东西的能力,以及团队领导力和拥抱他人的能力。


高中生减压小贴士

现在这个时候,我的那些高中学生们多数都压力山大。他们奋力保持有竞争力的在校成绩,复习ACT或是SAT和SAT Subject,完成各种学校实践任务以及小测试和重要考试,奔走于他们的社区志愿服务,同时还要准备意向学校的申请。要在这样繁重的日程表里做到不慌不忙井井有条,对于很多学生来说都是个挑战。

这样颇为艰难的时刻,我总是不断提醒学生们要注意身体,注意在繁重的学习工作中减压。不希望他们在这准备申请的关键时刻感冒生病。以下是我分享给学生让他们插入每日行程表中的五条小贴士:

贴士1 – 短途散步

走路可以让头脑清醒,产生安多芬,减少压力荷尔蒙。

贴士2 - 深呼吸

深呼吸,或者在數秒內連做幾次呼吸,這樣有助於減少緊張感,舒緩壓力。深呼吸可以刺激副交感神經運動,幫助我們平靜下來。

貼士3 – 吃一些健康的零食

水果,蔬菜,堅果等這樣一些健康的零食能夠減壓並補充即時能量。比如香蕉。一根香蕉含有422毫克的鉀,有助於幫助人在緊張的時候降低血壓。

贴士4 – 音乐

聆聽古典音樂可以讓人平靜下來,降低壓力荷爾蒙水準值。這樣能夠減少焦慮感。

贴士5 – 大笑

大笑的時候人體會吸入更多的氧氣,身體會產生更多的安多芬,而安多芬可以讓人身體放鬆。

7/11晚讲座Getting to a High Place with a Small Ladder

Getting to a High Place with a Small Ladder

--A New Perspective on College Entrance --

Are you scrambling to make the most of your last school year before college applications?

Are you discovering that it’s hard to find research projects?

Did you not get into or are you worrying about getting into prestigious summer programs?

Do you want to get into dream colleges but have very limited resources?

不在好学区?学校资源少,没有太多AP课学?没有多少club挑选?一些“排名”高的大学录取你的学校的学生太少?

没有机会进到“好”的夏令营?没有机会进到大学跟着教授做研究?。。。

以上Joey都没有,但却有机会被加州理工CalTech 以及不少其他名校录取。他是如何利用身边的资源的?又是如何进行时间管理的?CalTech以往是不太给像King’s Academy 这样的学校“名额”的,他如何让CalTech 青睐?来听听Joey的分享吧。

Whether it’s from finding research projects or internships, preparing for math or science contests, forming clubs or non-profit organizations, or of course, preparing for the rapidly approaching SAT/ACT/SAT2/AP tests, you start (or maybe continue) to feel the pressure of reaching one of those distant, “glorious” Ivy League schools.

If you have already overcome the hurdles of junior year, the description above may sound strikingly familiar to you. If you have not yet reached that point, you may be feeling like buckling up for the ride ahead. This seminar can help anyone from middle to high school.

Speaker: Joey Hong is a recent graduate of The King’s Academy–a small private Christian school, and an incoming freshman at Caltech. If you were to skim through his college application, you would find that his high school experience was actually quite different from that of public school students.

Activities: The King’s Academy is unlike the notable public schools of Lynbrook, Monta Vista, and others around here, and therefore, he was raised in a very different academic environment. These are several things that he did in high school:

  • Founder of school’s math club and physics club
  • Participant in math and physics competitions
  • Volunteer work in math and programming instruction
  • Web-development  intern
  • Independent STEM research project

High School Reflection: How does your high school environment affect the college application experience? Can you have a successful college process without overwhelming yourself with stress? These are questions Joey can answer without hesitation.

  • High School is about discovering yourself, NOT molding yourself into the perfect college applicant.
  • You can get into college WITHOUT fixating on finding the perfect extracurricular activities.
  • You DON’T need to sacrifice all balance and fun for academic achievement.

In the presentation, he will be covering my own high school journey, and analyzing the things he did to get me to this point. he will discuss the impact of my school and how it made the college application process different. Furthermore, he will also be going over the things he believe he should have done differently.
