"I'd had an upset stomach all morning - and sweating and worrying and afraid to check [my son's] recent [ACT] test score. I finally got up the courage to go online and get an early report. I was overjoyed - tears streaming down my face. I cannot tell you how happy, relieved, excited, etc....I am. I called my husband to tell him and he was going to text [our son] to let him know. He will be so excited! Thank you, thank you - a million thank yous. (and a big hug) You are the best!"
Julie, parent of 11th grader (ACT prep)
"[My son] got his ACT scores back and got a 33. We were all very happy. Those couple of points will really help him with the top tier schools he wants to apply to. We all agree the increase would not have been possible without the tutoring ... We really appreciate all the help. I am sure you will see us in 3 more years when my younger son starts preparing for the ACT."
Elizabeth, parent of 11th grader (ACT prep)
"A quick note to let you know that [my son] got a 35 [up from 32] on the ACT. We are so grateful for your help. Thanks and best wishes."
Mark, parent of 12th grader (ACT prep)
"[My son] was very impressed with the session today and thinks that you are a great tutor. It was the first time I've seen him confident about preparing for an exam. Thank you so much! ... Thanks again for working so well with my son."
(and later ...)
"I can't thank you enough for all that you did to help him achieve a qualifying score to join [the U.S. Marine Corps]. It would not have happened without you."
Frank, parent of young adult (ASVAB prep)
"I just wanted [to] say thanks for tutoring [our daughter]. She had nothing but good things to say about you, and appreciated your understanding just how busy her schedule is! We are also really pleased with the results ... she can cast her net more widely and entertain other options, something that her father and I are really happy about."
Jeane, parent of 11th grader (ACT prep)
"You are amazing!!!! I can't begin to thank you and when [my son] sees [his edited personal statement] tomorrow, he will be so totally grateful. Wow!!! You so concisely organized all thoughts and it reads a TON better. Thank you again and I am sure you will hear from me again."
Jane, parent of young adult (GRE prep, personal statement, resume)
"[My son] got a lot out of the session today and was very pumped up on the way home. It's very nice to be reminded that you can learn new concepts if someone has the time and patience to work with you! ... Thanks again for everything, Jana...you are our oasis in the dessert!"
"I am so proud of [my son] these past few weeks ... I know this is helping him find his inner strength. I don't want to sound like a broken record, but I sure do appreciate what you're doing!"
"Your help has been invaluable and enabled [my son] not only to get caught up ... but also to actually grasp the concepts! JANA, YOU HAVE BEEN WONDERFUL! Please know that I will heartily recommend your services whenever I have the opportunity to do so."
Kevin, parent of 11th grader (Alg 2)
