TJ Prep Course &
TJ Prep Writing Intensive
I have learned that you need to be a well rounded, brave student to get into TJ, not just a student who is intelligent and has good grades. You have to research a lot before looking into the school as a choice and make sure you know what they are aiming for and what their beliefs are. I also learned what type of students TJ is looking for and what to avoid and write in good essays. I would definitely recommend this class to people who need it because it was very helpful to me and I learned a lot from it. I would say that you learn a variety of things in this class and it improves your essay writing a lot.
I have learned about what TJ is looking for in our essays or what it takes to get into TJ. I have also learned about the importance of having a strong background and relationship with teachers (recommendations) to get into TJ. One weak link can mean the difference of getting in and being rejected. I would say this class provides students the details on how to make your essay stronger and more "efficient" to get out all of your personal information (reasons).
I knew a lot of the stuff that was being said but the way the class was organized helped me a lot. It made my thoughts more clear and straightforward. The things taught here also probably will help me with future essays, like college essays. One of the things that I didn't know before was the Mastery and Performance based orientations. I would recommend this class, it made me a lot more confident with my writing, and provided me with a lot of needed practice.
I learned how to write a proper resume, and how to write a good essay. I would recommend this class to others, because it improved my writing skills by a lot. Though I wish it would have gone on longer, day wise.
I have received admission into TJ! Thank you for guiding me to success on the TJ writing test!

I can't stop thinking how much I value your edits/comments to my son. He needs to hear them badly and he can follow the ideas when you point out to him. I haven't seen any other teacher give him such helpful and honest feedback. So I really appreciate it. Thank you.
Dear Dr. Wu, today I was offered admissions to TJHSST. I am very happy and proud, and I would like to thank you for your weeks of effort preparing me for the test, even after the class was over. Thank you very much.

I think the class is good and very helpful. I enjoyed the class and had fun, and I learned a lot from it. I think this class is near perfect. I would definitely recommend it to someone who needs a TJ writing class.
Carl, Student, 8th grade
Ms.Wu and Mr.Allen are great teachers! In this class, we can be productive and have fun at the same time, which are two qualities I think a good prep class should have. I enjoyed this class. The feedback and lectures were helpful and I would recommend this class to someone who wants a TJ writing class that is interesting and productive at the same time.
Kevin Xue, Student, 7th grade
I think that you guys did a pretty good job on how you organized the class, and what to teach us because we are still in middle school, but you made it so that we can learn about high school things and still actually understand it. I think that this class is very good preparation about how and what TJ is looking for.
