Thanks for working with my twins! Their essays are great! You have done a wonderful job! They would not have been able to [get into Duke and JHU early decision] without your help.

Anna-
A huge THANK YOU for all your support back in August. I’m delighted to confirm that [our son] will be attending Dartmouth! Thanks for your impact!
– L.

I got accepted into UChicago! Undoubtedly that’s my dream school! I cried so much. Thank you so much!
– B.

Hi Anna! Your help really paid off. I got into Columbia! Thank you for your patience, your skills, and all of your time and careful help. You are excellent at what you do. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

We are very happy with the experience and [Stanford acceptance].

Hello Anna,
Not long ago, I found out that I was accepted to Washington University in St. Louis under their Early Decision plan! As much as I think it was a mistake, I am far too happy to make sure. So thank you so very much for your help on my common app essay; I am sure it made a huge influence on the admission officers.
Thanks!
– J.

I just wanted to let you know that I was accepted to Johns Hopkins! Thank you for all of your help!! It wouldn’t have been possible without your help!

You rock! You helped my daughter “knock it out of the park” during EA round. This afternoon UChicago sent CONGRATULATIONS! I can confidently say you helped make her next 4 years.

Thank you for your patience and persistence assisting [our daughter] in gaining Ivy League admission potential. Yesterday she received notice from Georgetown University that she has been accepted under Early Action. Looking back to last summer and her essay phobia, I am not sure she could have exemplified without your assistance. Georgetown has turned out to be her “safety school” and she has subsequently trimmed down her list of additional applications submissions to a manageable handful. Go figure, Georgetown as a “safety.” I am nonplussed! I have recommended your services to several of our relatives and friends with teenagers in Junior year.

You have helped make my daughter ecstatically delighted over the initial result of her college application season.
Thank you with all our hearts,
The C. Family

[He] is enjoying and flourishing at NYU. Although it was a tough decision – Carnegie vs NYU – I know he made the correct one. I personally get hung up with overall ranking. However, NYU’s math and economics is very competitive and also highly ranked. A big thanks for helping him. I continue to recommend your services. Be well and speak again. Hopefully for grad school!

Dear Anna,
I would like to take this moment to thank you for all the wonderful things you made me accomplish. I am more than grateful for your help and I am really, really glad I found you. I wouldn’t have such a wonderful story to tell if it wasn’t for you. You made me tell it. I couldn’t have made it without you. I will be eternally grateful for your kindness and help. They were essential for the success of the essay. Please let me know what else I can do to thank you. I hope you have a wonderful trip, and once more, thank you for everything.
Kind regards,
G.

I would like to thank you again for helping [our son], he got an admission notice from Johns today. It is great to see him make his dream school become real and I would like to share this happy moment with you.
– J.

You made what can be a very stressful process fun and enlightening for her and we are very grateful.
– L. D.

The final result was engaging, unique, and judging by the acceptances, effective! Anna skillfully helped my child move past his “writers block” and the problem of not knowing where to start. She provided a realistic schedule with stepwise exercises that helped my child to generate ideas, and to find a comfortable and effective writing style – not always an easy thing for a Math/Science guy. Anna took the time to understand my child, his interests, his unique experiences and how to inject his natural dry humor into his writing. And last but certainly not least, she helped with the editing, tactfully helping him to recognize sections of the essay that needed to be reworked or elaborated upon. Anna was tremendously helpful at every stage of the process.
–Valerie M.

I have noticed a positive change in him this last week since he started working with you. He has really enjoyed the process so far. He seems so relaxed and happy and he is spending more time downstairs with us.
…You are amazing! This is nothing close to what I had expected. I knew you would help him get a decent essay, but this is exceptional! I am so thankful I found you!
– M. S.

Morgan sent me a copy of the essay and I think it is amazing. It truly reflects who Morgan is.
– L. M.

Thank you so much for helping her. She is loving working with you. The essay is amazing and also memorable.
– C. C.

I read the essay. Had tears in my eyes (although she will tell you I always cry so that won’t mean much to her!). I really like the work you both are doing.
Thanks again for everything,
S.

Is it possible to continue to work with him until he has the required essays for UT-Austin complete as well? I won’t mind the additional fees, you are definitely worth it!
– Marcey

I was accepted into their Honors Program!!!!! I also received their trustee scholarship! I am going to be a neuroscience major. I truly believe that your help on my essays is doing the trick here more than anything so thanks so much! I hope you and your family have a safe and happy holiday season!!
– S. R.

Thank you so much for your help! You made the process much easier and less stressful 🙂
– Kathie L.

You helped [our son] a lot. We really appreciate it, and he likes the way you teach.
– L. P.

It has been a pleasure working with you and without your help, everything would not have progressed so smoothly. You have provided me with valuable guidance and your advice never failed to enlighten me. I really appreciate your time and effort throughout these three weeks. Thanks Anna! I wish you all the best! 🙂 Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year! 🙂
– B. C. 

Hi Anna!
I just want to thank you for all the help you gave me. Your advice and guidance really helped me to write an essay I felt reflected myself.
Thanks again!
Warmly,
C. R.

It was a very productive and insightful experience. Anna is very familiar with the college application process and her expertise shows in the kinds of areas she chooses to focus in. She draws out all kinds of personal experiences as possible essay topics which builds an intimate connection between tutor and student.
– Jack Z.

Thanks for everything, this was a great experience for him! He learned a lot about writing and this will help him with future writing assignments. I will definitely be referring you to family and friends!
Best,
M.A.H.

Anna was wonderful! Very understanding and patient. She helped our story come alive! Very satisfied with end result.
– Shireen

We loved working with Anna. She was prompt with replies, very willing to help. She didn’t write Julia’s essay for her, but got her to free write and then helped her organize her ideas into a superb essay. She got many compliments on it. It came from her heart, but Anna pulled it out and helped her to shape it. We were lost and had no idea what to write or how to write it. The proofreading help was also invaluable as were Anna’s suggestions about how to improve the essay. The essay is from the essence of the student, not canned and not from Anna.
– Lori N.

Anna has been a tremendous help and did an amazing job throughout the whole process. She took time to know my child and bring out the best in her. Anna was very flexible and generous with her time and we could always count on her for honest feedback on the essays. Anna went above and beyond to help my daughter.
– Rao

Your guidance has been invaluable in helping her choose a topic that [reveals] different and unique parts of herself and shaping [it] into a really good piece of writing. Thank you so much.
Take good care and again, thanks so much.
– S. H.

Anna,
Thank you so, so much for all of the help you have given me with this essay! The whole process was completely stress-free and I’m very happy with the end result. Also, thank you for always working with my schedule and putting up with my constant texts. Having this essay out of the way is definitely a weight off of my shoulders and I couldn’t have done it without you.
Thanks again!
– E.

Thank you for your help Anna. [My daughter] was very happy to work with you.
Thanks again,
A. D.

Anna is a very kind and brilliant tutor. She helped to improve my son’s writing skills in very short period of time. She is very supportive during the very stressful time of essay preparation. She is someone you can trust to do a superb job as a tutor and you can enjoy working with as a person with great humanity.
