Student of the Week: Wilbert J.

Student of the Week

Each of the 7 weeks of summer, MEK Review teachers nominate a student to be awarded Student of the Week. This student is chosen due to his or her amazing performance, inspiring improvement, or great attitude in our Summer courses.

For Week 5, our teachers nominated Wilbert from our ACT Advanced course!

Meet Wilbert

Wilbert Joseph, ACT A studentWilbert is taking our ACT Advanced class, and consistently leads the program in high scores. Out of a possible 36, he’s already reached a total composite score of 35 several times in the past few weeks.

When he’s not dominating in the classroom, you can find him bringing the same intense energy to playing basketball, lifting weights, or even playing some ping-pong.

As he closes in on earning a perfect 36, we are inspired by his ambition, hard work, and focus!

Quote from Wilbert:

“I like the outgoing and energetic teachers that make class interesting. I also really like the quiet and clean environment that the entire building has; it makes for a great testing environment.”

Quote from Wilbert’s parents:

“Practice makes perfect, and repeatedly taking tests at MEK has improved Wilbert’s score.”

Quote from Wilbert’s teachers:

“Wilbert is a very disciplined student who treats every practice opportunity and test session with the maximum focus and effort. His efforts have led to a visible skill improvement and his flexible problem solving is evident from his class participation.”

– Pranav Gupta, ACT Advanced Math & Science Teacher

“Wilbert is a diligent student who has consistently performed well on tests. He also has done a great job of taking feedback that I’ve given to him about his essays, leading him to receive more than one perfect essay score!”

– Rachel Erwin, ACT Advanced English Teacher

“Wilbert is an actively engaged student who has displayed a high level of motivation to improve himself as a student from the very first class. This, coupled with his excellent classroom demeanor, has made Wilbert an absolute pleasure to teach and watch grow.”

-Mac Porter, ACT Advanced Reading Teacher

Way to go, Wilbert!

We’re so proud of our hardworking Student of the Week. We can’t wait to see what you’ll accomplish next!
