Jane was the ideal person to guide our son through the college application process. She worked directly with him, which gave us that peace of mind that we could step back. Her insights prompted our son to reflect on and fine-tune the essay for the application to his first choice school, Emerson College. We were thrilled that Emerson accepted him and offered him a spot in the honors program! Jane’s expertise played a big role in that success.
Our son speaks constantly of the impact you’ve had on him. In the past year, we’ve watched him grow into a confident writer… and now a budding journalist! He’s also excelling in his 4 AP courses this year. Thank you, Jane, for your wonderful tutorials.Read about Parth’s AP writing class

I just got my acceptances to UCLA, Boston University, and George Washington! Your guidance on all my essays definitely played into those outcomes, and I just wanted to say thank you again!… I wouldn’t be packing for UCLA right now without your help!
Thank you so much for your help with my college essay! On top of all my offers, I was awarded a combined total of $348,000 in merit-based scholarships! There is no doubt in my mind that my essay helped me get into these schools, and I could not be happier with the opportunity and choice it has provided me with. You were an amazing help through the process, and I’m glad to have had the opportunity to learn from you.
Jane is a super patient and fun teacher who took the time to get to know me as a person. She designed assignments according to my many interests, especially art. During our lessons, we looked at many short stories and novels together and did close reading in order to fully grasp the meaning behind each piece of text. She helped me build my vocabulary steadily each week, which allowed me to become more precise with my word choice in my writing. One of my favorite assignments was reading Fahrenheit 451 with Jane and analyzing the deep meaning behind words that seem insignificant at first glance. Jane not only helped me with my reading and writing skills, but also sparked my interest in the English language itself.Read Jasmine’s success story

Jane is a fantastic consultant! She knows so much about the college process and goes above and beyond in sharing that information with you. She helped me brainstorm topics, make them more structured, eliminate unnecessary words in my essays, and more! She also reviewed my Common App and every other aspect of my applications to ensure that I submitted my highest quality work. She is extremely encouraging. When I started out writing my college essays, I had no idea what I was doing, but Jane helped me understand how to adhere to what colleges are looking for.
Truly gifted in the art of content development, Jane is my go-to education consultant and student mentor. As she counseled our international students through the college process, I witnessed her handle challenging, high-profile clients with grace. Jane is able to think big-picture in helping students fully develop conceptual storytelling elements, while fine-tuning diction and grammatical details to enhance the overall success of the essay. Most impressive is her ability to inspire students who come to us without any idea of the goals they want to achieve. I cannot recommend her enough!
