Relax, It's Time To Take The GMAT
Test PrepNY/SF Improving Test Scores Through Mindfulness And Yoga For The Mind
Bara Sapir, a former Princeton Review instructor and a 20+ year veteran of the test prep industry founded Test Prep New York nine years ago. She earned a Masters degree in Education from the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York, an MA in Art History and a BFA from the University of Michigan. She is certified in NLP, Integrated Life Coaching, Reiki and Hypnotism. At TPNY, they first identify each test-taker’s comfort zone and patterns of error. They then customize a program for each student and then address their issues with anxiety, stress, or concentration. Relaxation and visualization tools are used to tap the subconscious mind, which can help clients reach scores they were unable to attain after training with big name test prep companies.
“At Test Prep New York, we’ve seen clients whose scores improved 30 percent when they addressed their anxiety issues,” says author Ms. Sapir. “The hard science research indicates a student’s score can be compromised anywhere from 12 to 35 percent as a result of test anxiety. This means the difference between a disappointing score and a solid, high score and between rejection and acceptance.”
Congressman Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) described mindfulness as “Being in the zone. You can train your mind to be in the present moment through these practices.This is really powerful stuff to help school kids who we yell at to pay attention, but we never teach them how to pay attention.” TPNY shows test-takers how to pay attention and enter “the zone” in order to achieve their highest scores in the 23 (and counting) educational and admissions tests.
