An opportunity that may interest students who are preparing to apply for Grad School. The University of Washington Women’s Center offers a GRE Preparation Course and also Basic Math Refresher Course regularly throughout the year.

The GRE Prep & Basic Math Refresher Course are each four sessions, each session lasting 3 hours and offers the following benefits to the participants: > Increased confidence in their ability to succeed on the GRE Test > Thorough preparation for the content of the GRE > Strategies for the test day & practice using them beforehand > Practice tests > A small classroom setting with personal attention given to each student > An experienced instructor, Renee Agatsuma has a proven track record of success of over 8 years of elementary, middle, high school and college-level mathematics instruction. She has also been teaching and tutoring students test prep (SAT, ACT, IB, AP, Math Olympiad) in the hopes that students can achieve their dreams and along the way find math enjoyable as a subject!

Just wanted to pass along a quick thanks to those who have worked to put together the page http://prehealthblog.shoreline.edu/2014/02/25/national-eating-disorders-awareness-week-info-session-th-at-12/. Also, if you don’t mind, may I suggest an additional resource to further help those challenged by eating disorder issues.
