What parents say about Impetus Coaching?
Here are a few words from some of the people we’ve worked with
“Melissa was a joy to work with. She helped me develop an interview technique that allowed me to properly express myself in a way that felt natural. Prior to working with her my interview answers always felt forced, and she played a key role in helping me overcome that. I thoroughly enjoyed my sessions with her, thinking through complex questions from multiple angles. Because of working with her I felt far more comfortable at interview. I am delighted that I worked with Melissa, and would strongly recommend doing so to anybody else” – Economics candidate who successfully reapplied to Cambridge with the support of Impetus Coaching, after being rejected first time around.
“We wanted our son to feel prepared and confident about the interview process at Cambridge as we had no idea what to expect. Melissa was great at relating to him and helping him to talk about his subject in a very natural and comfortable way. He also learnt how to deal with nerves on the day and different ways to come up an answer. The combination of one to one coaching and attending a group session for a day, helped him to normalise the whole process. We highly recommend Melissa, her coaching and group programmes” – Parent of Cambridge mathematics applicant
“The workshop builds skills and confidence, and sends the girls off with a plan to develop further. It was a pleasure to see the girls appreciate what they can do and how they can improve” – Oxbridge Coordinator, St Albans High School for Girls (The Sunday Times Independent School of the Year 2016)
“The coaching session proved entirely useful! I’d had a problem with nerves and trying to deal with them – I felt as though they were holding me back from performing well during exams, interviews or any situation dealing with pressure. The session offered me advice on how to recognise these fears and then how to cope with them, the techniques I’ve learnt have already proved successful and I’m sure they will carry on doing so in the future!” – Workshop participant
“An excellent part of preparation for interviews, dealing with stress and confidence building, whether for specific applications or more general personal development” – Careers and Higher Education Adviser, St Clare’s, Oxford
“Melissa gave our son excellent support in his preparation for interview , building on his strengths and, in particular, developing his confidence. He became much more comfortable with the process and he learnt a lot about himself which will stand him in good stead for the future. Melissa was also very thorough in her feedback to our son and ourselves” – Parent of Cambridge economics candidate
“I wanted to thank you so much for all your guidance. I recently received an offer to read Biochemistry at Oxford and am totally over the moon. I doubt I would have been successful without your advice and the confidence you brought out! I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am and how valuable the experience was for me” – Workshop participant
“An excellent day, well put together with lots of invaluable advice and activities. Impetus does all the hard work, and delivers exactly what is required, and then some! Score = 10/10” – Oxbridge co-ordinator, Tudor Hall School, Banbury
“I am emailing to thank you once again for your help with the interview preparation 🙂 I have finally received my official acceptance letter, and so I figured I should tell you that I did get an offer from Cambridge for Engineering starting in October this year. I even managed to get into the college I initially wanted, so you do deserve a big thank you:)” – Workshop participant
“The approach and methods used by Impetus Coaching really challenge the students honestly to examine their own strengths and weaknesses, and to develop the attributes which will enable them to succeed at interview. My students were motivated and enthused by the workshop. It changed them, and it showed them how they can change themselves” – Head of Sixth Form, Ashville College, Harrogate
