From Parents:

"Your college prep worksheet is very helpful for me as I have never gone through this before and find the process somewhat overwhelming myself!"

"Thank you so much for helping Sarah. It made the entire process less painful! I know that she enjoyed her sessions with you. We did meet our goal. Most of her applications went in the mail today!"

In the memo line on a payment check: For: Great Help!

"Dear Susan, The help you have given Kayla has been invaluable. My husband and I appreciate it a great deal. You do an incredible job helping kids not only in improving their grades but their confidence as well. Wishing you a happiest of holidays!"

A printed card sent by a parent had this quotation from Mother Teresa, "We feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop." This was handwritten from the mother of three students: "And you are helping make rivers flow for these kids...thank you."​

"Thanks again for all your help. You will always be our angel that came into our lives at the perfect moment. :)"

“Thank you, Susan! You shared our happiness when our kids achieved short-term tutoring goals, when they were accepted at every prestigious college on their lists, and when they received scholarships to their first-choice schools. It wasn’t always easy-breezy, but by planning ahead and following your guidance, their high school junior and senior years were relatively calm and well-paced although packed with activities and expectations. We’ve loved sharing your contact information with parents of high school students, and we’ll continue to highly recommend your valuable expertise and manageable, results-based approach to tutoring. Hugs and love from all of us!”

From Students:

"I got in to Western. My mom cried when I told her. Thank you for everything!"

"Thank you! I was pretty nervous at some points but you couldn't have been more correct when telling me that it would all work out. I really appreciate all of the work you did with me. I don't think I could have done it without your guidance."

"You're so excited about what you do that it makes me excited about it!"

"One thing I forgot to mention in my note is how much you improved my writing as a whole. I believe your tutoring taught me more about writing than my English class ever did. Maybe that's because I liked you better as a teacher than I ever liked school. Thanks for everything."
