"Incredible. I cannot effectively describe what Linda has done for my children with college preparation and tutoring. She helped one of my sons outline all his essays for college applications. He had the information and with Linda's assistance he was able to successfully format his stories and personal life events into creative and persuasive essays. My son, Patrick, was accepted to schools and offered scholarships at schools that were his "reach schools" in addition to the ones that were within his SAT achievement scores. Linda helped keep him on track so all his applications were complete prior to senior year. What a relief and confidence-builder for my son.
Thank you, Linda!!"—Judy, Chester, NJ
"The summer before my senior year I worked with Mrs. P to write my college admissions essays. At first I was skeptical because college admissions essays are supposed to be individual and I was worried that she might want me to give generic answers. However, Mrs. P encouraged me to express myself and be genuine. We created detailed outlines so when it came time to write I had all the information in front of me and was putting my words to it; making it my story. Upon talking to school officials, I received great feedback about how my essays were a deciding factor in my acceptance. I was admitted to several schools that were originally thought to be out of reach for me and I have Mrs. P to thank for that. Thank you!"—Patrick, Chester, NJ
"I don't know what we would have done without Linda's help. She made us feel less stressed about the entire process of applying to college.
