“Elizabeth, the information you provided at last evening’s session was very helpful. You have provided us with a roadmap for high school, and for that we thank you! We will keep in touch for advice as our child progresses through her high school years.”

“Three years ago, we started looking for a College Advisor before our oldest child graduated from eighth grade. We just wanted someone to tell us ‘how it works.’ In Elizabeth, we found a college expert who genuinely cares about the success and well-being of our daughter.

Initially, Elizabeth met with the three of us to explain college entrance requirements and what to strive for over the high school years, in order to maximize our daughter’s college opportunities. After each semester, Elizabeth was available to help her decide which classes to take, what activities to keep or quit, and how to make truly informed decisions. Elizabeth went on to work with our family until our daughter was admitted to her first choice school, Arizona State University, Honors College, with a nice scholarship!”

“Even with all the hardships Nathaniel went through this past year, he did extremely well and also matured a lot. He has been admitted to several colleges, one with a very generous award. We will continue to seek your counsel until we make a final decision about where Nathaniel will get the support he needs to thrive in college.”

“Although I have many great college opportunities, I have decided to attend SDSU and major in Dance. I couldn’t have done this without your support and guidance.”

“I am so thankful that we applied to a wide range of schools per your guidance. There are many students in our school district that did not do so, and have fewer or some even no options for a 4 year college this fall. Many will be going to community colleges, which are already overflowing with students. Almost all of our son’s friends (many of them with superior academic and extracurricular achievements) did not get accepted to schools typically perceived to be within their range. We have much to be grateful and we appreciate how you systematically and caringly shared your college admissions wisdom with us.”

“Today I got into both University of California Davis and University of Chicago, and received merit aid at both! I’m really happy and proud. Thanks for all your support as I don’t think I could have done it without you.”

“The greatest reward is to know that you have actually affected a young person’s life in a positive way. This is the reason I started working in education and continues to be the source of my boundless motivation and energy.”
