Tuition found on the respective school websites or TACHSinfo.com. If the listed tuition was for 2021-2022, we increased it proportionally by 5% to account for inflation. This is an underestimate in 2022.Pie Chart of $3.8 Million in Scholarships Awarded to 8th Grade Students of John Zaborskis and associated tutors in 2022

 

Most lessons were online for the past year. Our results show that our online lessons were just as effective as in-person lessons, if not more so.

This is a sum of over 3.8 million dollars in academic scholarships. Most students made all three high schools on the TACHS and were accepted to at least their first choice. One parent told us her student did not make any schools. Many were accepted to the Honors and/or Scholars programs to schools such as Kellenberg, Archbishop Malloy, Moore Catholic High School, and many of the best schools in the NYC area above.

 

About 16% of the students in the program earned over $100,000

The average award of all 98 students was over $39,688 in scholarships over four years, which was better than previous years when all lessons were in-person. If a student received a scholarship, his or her individual average was $99,729! The median of those students was $79,380. Since the median and average are relatively close, this shows that scholarships were mostly symmetrically spread throughout the students.

39 out of the 98 students earned a scholarship over $10,000. This is about 40% of the students.

33 students earned at least $25,000 in combined scholarships. This is about 1 out of every 3 students or about 33.3%.

24 students earned at least $50,000 in combined scholarships. This is slightly less than 1 out of every 4 students or about 25%.

16 of those students earned at least $100,000 in combined scholarships. This is about 1 out of every 6 students. About half the students who earned over $25,000 earned over $100,000!Many students earned multiple scholarships. If they took only their largest award, they saved a combined total of over $2,545,800 or over $65,000 on average.

Investing in your student’s education will yield many times the returns over their lifetime, whether it allows them to get a better job, earn more in their career, save time at a task, or solve novel problems that make them and those around them happier. Most of my students have earned many times their (parent’s) return on investment in only 6 months to a year. I teach all lessons in a way that shows how the material will be used in the future. What students learn in 7th grade are the building blocks from which all future math, science, and other material will be built. What they learned in high school admissions lessons will pay dividends throughout their entire lives.

John Zaborskis and associated tutors have helped students earn over $12.8 million in scholarships.

Preparation for the rigorous high school entrance exams in New York such as the Test for Admission to Catholic High Schools and High School Placement Tests has already begun. Contact me to talk about how we can get the best results from your student. 6th and 7th grade is the best time to start, not only because of the impending high school entrance exams but also because grades in school in 7th grade matter heavily for entrance into most high schools. Above all, most topics in algebra, physics, chemistry, math, and calculus rely on concepts learned/mastered around 7th and 8th grade.

Slightly less than half the students who we prepared from 2018-2022 earned at least one scholarship. 117 of them earned over $10,000 in scholarships and 36 earned over $100,000 in scholarships.

Start Preparation for the High School Admissions Exams Now

Before the first lesson, I like for all high school admissions students to take a practice test to identify areas of focus, compare to future tests, and suggest tutoring groups or individual lessons. After that, we will have multiple TACHS, HSPT, and SHSAT practice tests before the actual exams. To start lessons, register for the First High School Entrance Test for 6th and 7th graders at the link below. If it is May or later, register for the next TACHS or HSPT practice exam.
