Jane Kristoffy - Right Track Education

Nothing is more exciting than seeing a student achieve personal success.

Kids can accomplish anything in a “best fit” academic program.  With a sense of belonging, and inspiration from like-minded peers and mentors, students accomplish anything they set their minds to — I’ve seen it first hand!

As an Educational Consultant & Strategist, I’m passionate about helping kids thrive, academically and personally.  My mission is to help students find their “best fit,” and their gifts.  

Over twenty years in my roles as teacher, coach, guidance counsellor, school administrator, volunteer, and parent have taught me ways to encourage perseverance, good work habits, self-efficacy and self-advocacy in kids — among other things.

Testimonials

The Interview Skills session was so much more than just interview prep - it really was LIFE prep. I know my daughter is a smart, kind girl, but I also know that people don’t always see her qualities because she can be shy. As a mom, I can only “nag” so much about looking people in the eye, speaking up, having more presence, etc. It was so helpful having someone ELSE teach her these important lessons! I could tell she found this session eye opening. It will have more benefit beyond just the interview process. I told Jane she should consider starting up a “finishing school” for kids to learn exactly what my daughter learned in this session. Thank you Jane, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your help, insight, and wisdom. A. Leung
The energy and enthusiasm our son Jack had when telling us about his Time Management session with Jane warmed our hearts! Jack is super motivated about school right now and the support Jane provided for him is key.

We can't thank Jane enough for sharing her knowledge, experience and expertise with our teenager, and she is exactly the right person to help him find his way to a meaningful post-secondary experience. Thank you so much Jane. We deeply appreciate everything you are doing for Jack! Anne & Steve K.
Engaging Jane Kristoffy was the best decision we could have made regarding our daughter’s admission process to the Independent School System. Coming highly recommended, Jane’s professionalism, dedication and in depth knowledge of the two school systems were immediately apparent. Not only did she prepare our daughter for the application process, exams and multiple interviews, more importantly she became an educational mentor to our daughter by helping her develop scholastic skills that will benefit her throughout her educational journey. We strongly recommend Jane to any family looking to engage an educational consultant. We know we made the right decision choosing Jane, as our daughter will be starting at her first choice independent school this fall. Again, thank you Jane! Rose & Andrew Martyn
Our son Dylan worked with Jane to prepare for the SSAT and to apply to high school. This was an all-new process for our family, and Jane made it seamless and anxietyfree. She helped us with every aspect of the process and readied Dylan during the group sessions at her home. She provided valuable information and study tools and techniques all while being a compassionate and patient teacher. She provided encouragement and confidence to the Dylan during this stressful time in his 12-year-old life. He most certainly would not have been as prepared for the SSAT without her and our application process not as smooth or complete. We are happy to say that Dylan scored well on the SSAT and got into his first choice school! If only the rest of high school would be so easy :). N. and S. Amato-Gauci
Jane has helped two of our children with both SSAT prep and Interview prep with excellent outcomes! Our son and daughter learn very differently and had very different needs. Jane was able to effectively customize her approach to meet the requirements of both. The SSAT prep (both workshop and one-on-one tutoring) prepared the kids and provided them with strategies to successfully complete the test and her interview skills workshop ensured that the kids were confident and prepared for the high school interview process.

Our son worked with Jane in private sessions to prepare for the grade 6 SSAT and to prepare for the unique interview process at UTS. Jane was fantastic throughout – she very quickly identified our son’s strengths and weaknesses, tailored the SSAT preparation specifically to his individual needs and abilities, and was very flexible, scheduling only as many sessions as she thought were really necessary. The SSAT and school interviews would be stressful for any 11-year-old, but thanks to Jane, our son walked into the exam room and into the interviews feeling well-prepared and confident, ready to do his best. He did very well on the exam, was invited to the interviews at UTS, and ultimately was offered a place in grade 7, starting next fall. We would recommend Jane to anyone. Carolyn Koziskie
Jane worked with our family last fall as we prepared for our son’s transition to high school. We appreciate her expertise in school programs and the various application processes. Jane provided us with thoughtful recommendations and we made our decisions with confidence. We could not have done it without her help! J.W.
Student feedback: “The interviews workshop was so good. It prepared me very well for all my admissions interviews. The recording of my practice interview was an excellent tool to see how I sounded and ensured that I did not fidget.”
Parent feedback: “After participating in Jane's interview preparation course, our daughter was poised and  confident ‎and ready to face her high school admissions interview process.”  T.G. and K.G.
Jane's course was instrumental in preparing our son for the SSAT test.  What she offers is a clear knowledge of how and what to study for this specific test format and a time-line to keep a busy family on track.  Liam actually looked forward to the study sessions, amazing for an 11-year old boy, and she gave him confidence.  As a teacher I felt her feedback was relevant, encouraging and individualized.  Without a doubt, this course beyond anything else we did, was key in Liam's success.  Our son was offered a spot at UTS but even if he had not been accepted, he would agree that the process of studying with Jane for this test enriched him academically and even more importantly, gave him confidence.  Make this session part of your SSAT process!
