Our son first began working with Nancy for his High School ISEE/SSAT tutoring. He re-engaged with Nancy for his SAT tutoring and college application process.
It was particularly remarkable to us, how Nancy re-connected with our son, at this new developmental stage and they resumed their relationship flawlessly. Her ability to intellectually and emotionally meet him where he now was, to value and respect his individuality and his interests, was extraordinary.
Her keen understanding of high school students and the stress and anxiety that often accompanies the college application process, coupled with her bandwidth of knowledge of specific schools/majors, within colleges/universities, the nuances of the common app essay, supplemental essays, activities sheet, and much more, provided our son with a level of support, calm, consistency and confidence, during a complicated process.
By creating spreadsheets and shared Google docs, Nancy kept our son accountable in meeting numerous deadlines, thereby empowering him to own the process, which significantly reduced his stress and anxiety.
Nancy is also an incredible collaborator and was always respectful of our son’s in school college counselor’s recommendations and opinions. This approach resulted in our son submitting the strongest applications possible.
