Test Prep Sanity at #DadChat

Category: #DadChat

Elie Venezky and a very limber lady!

Everyone knows the stress that standardized tests cause both students and their parents. We’ve got THE expert on this subject this Thursday at #DadChat from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 -10:00 p.m. ET.  Elie Venezky (@PrestigePrep) has been helping families prepare for standardized tests for over 14 years.

His new book, Test Prep Sanity shows parents how to prepare their children every step of the way, from when to start test-prep to how to find the right tutor, right down to what students should eat and wear on test day. We will be giving away THREE copies of Elie’s new book – and, as usual at #DadChat, you’ll have to earn them! If you can’t wait, click on the cover image, below, and buy it now!

Elie Venezky founded Prestige Prep in 2001 and is currently its Educational Director. He finds standardized tests fascinating and will talk about them with just about anyone. Contact him at (917) 579-0635 or [email protected].

When he’s not tutoring, Elie is an aerialist. He has performed trapeze, lyra and aerial dance in Europe and across the United States. He lives in Brooklyn.

And, during this #DadChat ONLY, if you buy the book on Amazon/Kindle, I will send you a free copy of the PDF and fully reimburse you the $2.99 Kindle cost – via PayPal – when you send me the purchase receipt: [email protected]

    Sounds like fun.
    I’ll be sure to stretch thoroughly first.

      Especially if I’m doing the “holding” – lol…

    Never met an aerialist before…on a separate note, I’m curious to hear if there will be discussion around accessibility. What I’ve seen in many cases there are great resources out there, but they are too costly for the people that need it most, which only widens the education gap we see in this country. Having been through this process (I was lucky to have been gifted a test prep course), it’s just something I’m sensitive to and take the opportunity to encourage discussion on this whenever possible.

      I dated an aerialist once – really! Ask that question, Eric! Elie is completely open to this discussion and you know how free-form #DadChat is!

        Unfortunately, I will be on a plane during #DadChat this week, so maybe I can catch up with Elie separately or you can ask on my behalf. Would be great to get the rest of #DadChat to provide their PoV as well.

          Don’t they have wi-fi on your plane? You can schedule tweets with your questions if you want, Eric. The transcript will be posted right after and Hashtracking is back up and working great, I hear!

    I’ve unfortunately done business with Elie a while back. He shouldn’t be trusted and is a cheat.
