1. What is the difference between the various assessment packages?
College Major & Career Exploration – This package will assess your personality, personal strengths and areas of interest in order to determine suitable college major /occupations that have high potential for providing a fulfilling career. The consultant will work with you to search the colleges which are best for that particular major of your choice.
Learning Style & Multiple Intelligences – This package is very helpful particularly for students in Grades 4 to 8 in understanding their learning styles, strengths and potentials. The consultant will provide an analysis about the children’s preferred styles of learning or processing information and will give tips on how they may learn best. This will enhance their learning potential, school performances, and the parent and child relationship. This information can also give you an idea on what types of career and environment your child may enjoy.
College Major or Career Path Change – For return clients who have done the personality and interest inventories assessment with us before, the consultant will re-evaluate the previous reports and re-identify your new interest and passion with you together. A 1-on-1 meeting can be arranged for new clients who are considering a career change and are looking for consultation. However, they may need to take certain suitable inventories tests before the consultation meeting can take place.
