Throughout a child's life they continually look to their parents for education, guidance, and support. These days, it seems parents have to take on roles that are larger than life. We understand what a daunting task it is to help your student through each phase of their life, especially when they embark on the path towards college.
At Veritas Education, our services go beyond the student, as we know behind each student is a parent guiding them. Our services range from academic assistance to bridging the gap between cross-cultural and cross-generational communication. Join us at our workshops!
College Application Workshop
Time: 7:30 - 8:30 pm ET
Want to know the key factors that will help your child stand out in a college application? How has COVID19 changed the application landscape?
In this online workshop, we will focus on the following:
What top schools are looking for?
What we can do to better prepare ourselves/students?
How to craft an effective college essay that will stand out?
What can parents do to support their child in this critical and stressful process?
Why is it getting harder to get into a top school?
What changes do I need to know as a result of COVID19?
Through this workshop, we hope to encourage students to think holistically about themselves when applying for colleges and writing college application essays. This requires a willingness to examine oneself and understand our motivations for doing what we do.
We do this by focusing on self-understanding and self-appreciation while dealing with some of the questions that students and parents often ask us about the application process.
Dr. Wu and The Veritas Team are excited to share their expertise, as well as tips to make your application stand out from the rest.
Join us to learn more insight into the application process, and gain ideas for practical steps you and your student can take to better prepare for this journey.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused massive changes in our education systems. Now, parents and guardians may feel anxious about the upcoming school year, seeing their children facing virtual learning and reduced school hours. With their kids currently stuck at home all day, how can parents best encourage them to continue reading, writing, learning, and developing these skills more effectively?

“What’s the point of going to Harvard if you don’t have a dream? [I think] the number one thing is putting yourself in situations where even you say: ‘Man, this stinks.’ Because once you say it stinks, that means you have an obligation to do something about it.”
