“Start preparing for college in grade six (around age 11),” says UC San Diego Director of Admissions Mae Brown. Starting early with high-quality and encouraging guidance is a key success factor for competitive high school preparation. (Read ThreeEQ Founder and Chief Mentor Jason L. Ma 馬良傑老師’s Forbes article “Why to Start Preparing for College in Sixth Grade”.) We at ThreeEQ care deeply about our mentees/students.

We are passionate about helping our youngest students, who are high-achieving middle schoolers, develop the fundamental academic, interpersonal, leadership, high school preparation, and some proactive college preparation skills. This process enables the students to thrive in challenging academic environments and social contexts. We nurture the exploration of your child’s interests and the expression of his/her authentic self. Our personalized, nurturing, strategic, and pragmatic guidance focuses on grooming your child as a future leader. We inspire him/her to dream bigger and to take concrete steps to achieve his/her goals.

Our personalized mentoring will focus on shaping the beginning your child’s story. We will guide your child to realize his/her authentic best as an achiever, upcoming high schooler, and whole person—giving you and your family a head start in unleashing your child’s full potential.

Among the world’s top experts in unleashing the full potential of young leaders, and blessed with an uncanny ability to motivate, inspire, and help young people, Mr. Ma has personally and successfully guided (1-on-1) and transformed the lives of hundreds of middle school, high school, and college students through the years (see testimonials).

Developing Good Habits and Fundamental Skills

We are aware that, malleable and young, your child is still developing his/her habits and sharpening fundamental academic and interpersonal skills. We capitalize on these precious few years to help him/her internalize good study habits and time management skills. We are sensitive that middle school heralds the onset of puberty and all of its attendant social and personal drama. Our life coaching helps your child develop effective conflict management tools to facilitate his/her relationships with you as parents and his/her peers. We focus on strengthening your child’s oral and written communication skills as well as his/her emotional and social intelligence so that he/she can navigate complex social and academic contexts with confidence and ease.

Excelling at School and Beyond

Middle school is an important dress rehearsal for high school, and we strive to optimize your child’s academic performance. We help your child select a rigorous yet balanced course load—including electives and foreign languages—that complements his/her strengths and interests. In addition to excelling in the classroom, your child and you can strategize with us to develop his/her leadership and interpersonal skills through extracurricular, volunteer, and community activities. We help your child commit to meaningful activities that he/she can continue in high school and beyond—activities that enable your child to grow and assume greater leadership capacities. Finally, we work closely with your child to begin preparing for standardized tests and academic competitions, if applicable.

Applying to Quality Private, Boarding, or International Schools and Summer Programs

If your child is aiming to gain admission to quality private, boarding, or international schools and summer enrichment programs, we provide personalized counseling and coaching to ensure that your child and you as parents present yourselves confidently and authentically on paper and in person. Working closely with your child and you as parents, we help research and suggest an optimal set of schools to which to apply. We provide your child with guidance on standardized testing and perspective on the best summer programs for personal and academic development. Our service is comprehensive and includes guiding your child in crafting high-quality applications, resumes, and essays, as well as securing strong recommendation letters from his/her teachers. Most important, we unleash your child’s full potential and help bring out his/her authentic, best self that he/she, you, and your family will be so proud of!


With Mr. Ma leading the charge, we can positively transform your high-achieving child in the process and help prepare him/her for the upcoming four years of high school. We pride ourselves in delivering truly high quality and making a significant difference to your child’s results. Take advantage of the distinctively effective and inspiring guidance from ThreeEQ.
