From Students:

Audrey B.

I want to thank you for the help you provided me in the college process. I appreciate the time and effort you put into helping me. Your advice was one of the integral elements guiding me through my applications and your feedback was an invaluable tool. It was so helpful to have someone who fully understands the application process and what admissions is looking for. I am grateful for your honesty, as it only through honest criticism that I could improve my writing, yet you never distorted the idea or message I was trying to convey. Thank you.

Jeremy K.

I am learning more about writing techniques by working on these drafts than I have in English class in most school years.

Taylor A.

I love the way this essay has turned out. Thank you for helping me with everything. I appreciate all the time you spent working with me.

Alexandra H

Thank you so much for all your great corrections and advice. I can’t believe my essay is finally done and I could have never done it without your help. You have been so great and understanding through this entire writing process.

Chris F.

Your help was really valuable to me. I wouldn’t have been able to make it through all the writing I had to do for my applications without your help. I know that you helped my writing to improve and it has shown in my school work the rest of this year.

Aaron T.

MIT ACCEPTED ME EARLY ACTION! Thank you so much for all your help with my essay writing and college planning in general. You have no idea how much you have helped me.

Your support made this very intense and confusing process much more manageable. At first we were nervous about contracting with you because we live in Maine and were quite far away. But we called the references you provided, and they all were extremely positive. Over the last year working together, we found you to be extremely knowledgeable, always patient and professional. You always called us back promptly and took as much time as we needed to go over information and did exactly what you said you would do, when you said you would do it. Your “Dry Run” exercise was a very useful reality check. In addition to your admission advise, your financial aid advice but us in the best position during our base year. Also, we know how to look ahead and budget for the next fours years. Noah, just got accepted ED to Bates and we are very pleased with the financial aid package. Thanks to you, there were no surprises!! We wholeheartedly recommend the service of Programs for Education to families with college bound students.

You really have done a terrific job coaching Jon. I also see the evidence in the AP History and English papers he has written this semester! His writing is clearer, more concise and written in a much more mature “voice”. As agonizing as this college essay writing process has been for him, he has grown and benefited from it. Many thanks…

…would you be available in the weeks ahead to review Madeline’s draft essays for her college applications? You were so wonderful with Parker – now a senior at Haverford College in PA, and we would be thrilled if you could do it.

…Thanks for all your tremendous assistance and guidance toMadeline.

Alan C.

…Ashley is now a graduate of Harvard with a major that you recommended for her way back when she was a high school junior, (economics and international studies) one that she never had even thought of, but was just right for her. Not pre med as she, her teachers and I thought would be her destiny. In fact, she admits that if she had it to do all over again, Harvard would not have been her first college pick. You were right there too Eric!
