Success Stories

For Organisations

The retiring founder/CEO of a $10 million business required support to coach his executive team to effectively sustain and grow the business operations. We developed a unique “group coaching” model that enabled the executives build core skills and effect a proper organizational structure that enabled the Founder exit the business fully and facilitated continued growth.

For Professionals

A newly promoted Sales Executive required coaching to assist with challenges around growing sales and establishing her team. We developed and established a new sales process and structured the team for growth. I also identified and focused on developing core Sales and Team Management skills. The result was a 300% increase in average monthly sales and recognition as Salesperson of the Year.

For Students (GMAT/GRE)

Hear what some of our students have to say:

I worked with Total Ascent over a period of 8 weeks. My Tutor created a study plan for me, which guided me through the GMAT process at a time when I was feeling very overwhelmed by the sheer volume of the course content. In the week leading up to each session, I would go through the many practice questions Total Ascent sent me, and this would then be used in the sessions. My tutor was a great teacher. Aside from having an in-depth understanding of even the most complicated GMAT problems, he was also very good at rendering the concepts less abstract and more relatable to his students. He was incredibly patient and encouraging, and more importantly, he was driven by a very genuine desire to see his students succeed. Working with Total Ascent gives you much more than just practice questions and solution sheets. Students can count on the Total Ascent team for holistic coaching and support through the daunting GMAT examination process, and for a personalized plan at their individual pace that will get them the results they seek.

Total Ascent was just the kind of tutoring I had been looking for. I came across them after having a bad experience with another Lagos based company. I had the pleasure of having a Tutor who was extraordinarily patient with me and went above and beyond to ensure that I clearly understood the concepts being taught. I particularly liked that he solved questions WITH me, not FOR me. The Total Ascent team were always able to provided question banks at my request which I really appreciated. Total Ascent has a genuine commitment to ensuring that their students ace the GMAT. With their help I exceeded my target score of 680 and scored a 690!

‘’I started working with Total Ascent 2-weeks before my scheduled exam date because I realized that I still had some content gaps that needed to be covered. The team at Total Ascent were extremely organised and professional (this was crucial with the short timeframe I was working with). They wasted no time getting a schedule to me and I began an intense program. The Verbal lessons were particularly helpful because they focused on the key areas tested on the test (previously I had struggled to cover all the content). I was also surprised at how much I was able to improve my Quant score in such a short time too. This improved my confidence greatly and meant I was a lot less anxious during the actual exam. I’m really glad I invested in these classes and would recommend them to anyone taking the GMAT!’’

“The outstanding thing about my journey to business school with Total Ascent is not just the quality and depth of the GMAT coaching, but the emotional support I enjoyed from the team (Ronke & Tosin). With Total Ascent, it was not just about teaching me to pass the GMAT, it was about getting me into my desired school. The team listened and emphatised with me; and proffered possible solutions to the challenges I faced at each stage. Even though I did not get my desired GMAT score, I got into my desired school, a considerable amount of funding and graduate assistant-ship opportunity”.

‘’Total Ascent provided an excellent opportunity to gauge my preparedness for GMAT and understand what I needed to do to improved. The Total Ascent team also provided me with excellent tutoring, mentoring and useful resources to aid my preparation. With Total Ascent, I was able to improve my score to 650 and pursue admissions to all my target schools.’’

‘’Total Ascent provided a great learning environment with wonderful facilitators and helpful team mates. The Total Ascent team helped me to build my confidence and prepare well for the GMAT. I had taken the GMAT twice before without success but with Total Ascent’s assistance, I improved my score by over 100 points and gained admission to the school of my choice. The Total Ascent team even put me in touch with one of their former students, who had gained admission to my school the previous year, to help me with getting financial aid and preparing for the transition to Business School-it was a truly wonderful experience working with Total Ascent.’’
