“Sharon helped my grandson through the whole college admission process, starting in his junior year. She helped him select colleges that might be a good fit, helped him fill out his application forms and get them in on time, and even helped him edit his essay. She was a godsend. Don’t know what we would have done without Sharon.” – CC, Hopkinton, MA
“From the minute we first spoke to Ruth Ann, we knew that she was a subject matter expert and would be able help guide us on the journey to find the right school for my son. Her experience and thoughtful recommendations made a huge difference in our ability to properly chose and vet the school my son ultimately chose.” – MC, North Carolina
“We began working with Ruth Ann at the start of my daughter’s senior year. We had gone through most of the college process but hit a road block when it came to completing some of the questions on the Common App, writing the supplements for the individual colleges and preparing for interviews.
From my perspective, it was priceless. Not only did Ruth Ann help my daughter present her “best self” to the colleges, but she also built up her self-esteem. She helped her consider different things to write about and look at things from a different point of view. She kept my daughter on task so she had things completed before they were due. She took the pressure off of me having to be the person working with my daughter which helped the whole process run so much more smoothly. Ruth Ann had a great way with her and my daughter enjoyed the time they spent together.” – JS, Hopkinton MA
“I feel blessed that our daughter was able to work with Kim! She took the collective anxiety about college admissions off our shoulders. Kim is extremely knowledgeable. She asked thought provoking questions which enabled my daughter to narrow down her college choices, complete her applications with confidence, present a comprehensive and organized activity list, finalize her supplemental essays, and reach out for interviews. Kim’s insight was invaluable.
Kim was completely accessible to my daughter (and to me) and responded quickly and thoughtfully to each question we posed along the way. Although Kim works with many students, my daughter always felt like her priority. Her positivity and encouraging nature added a level of enthusiasm and confidence that my daughter needed.
Above all else, and what I appreciated most as a parent, is Kim’s true passion about what she does. Kim is clearly vested in her students’ enjoyment of the process and the excitement that comes along with presenting their “best self” to colleges. I cannot wait to have her work with my son!” – DA, Hopkinton, MA
