Here are what some of our parents have said about our workshops:

Brad and I cannot say enough about Emily and the help she provided to Lauren. I believe she was a huge part of why Lauren got into her “reach” school.”

“The college application process has been a smooth one during Eric’s Senior year. Working with you on his essays/applications were a major part of creating that smoothness. He was completely finished with applying to his top choices by November. He was accepted to 2 of his top 3 schools early in the school year. That allowed him time to relax & encouraged him to continue working hard on his grades. We are SO grateful he worked with you! Thank you Emily!!!!!!!”

-Jackie (Edmonds, WA)


“Tristan is going to attend University of Washington. He was accepted into the honors program. He was thrilled as this was his first choice. … University of Washington offered him Direct admit to his major- the computer science and engineering program. This allows him to bypass many prerequisites and not have to compete and apply to get in during his sophomore year. Emily, I can’t thank you enough for your help in Tristan’s success. I was so happy that we were introduced to you. You are a true professional. Thank you for making him work hard to focus his thoughts through the maze of essay writing! Thank you!”
