She got to know him, and was able to push him to be more introspective and show more of himself in his essays. She also was great about keeping him on task during the process -- it was really helpful to have her serve that role, vs. being the nagging parents. Wendy was much more effective!! Most importantly, our son developed a wonderful relationship with Wendy -- she was willing to help at all hours. Couldn't recommend her enough!
Kathleen W. was a fantastic tutor for my teenage daughter. She was very qualified, prepared, nice and comfortable to be with. She helped proofread and organize her college application essays. My daughter now feels confident with her work. I recommend her to anyone. If we find we need a little extra help in the future, she will be the one that we will call.
I hesitate to wax poetic about Phoebe, however, because when you find someone amazing it's best to keep quiet otherwise she'll get too busy and won't have time for you!! However, Phoebe was extremely busy when I reached out in desperation and still she made time to work with my high school senior on his college application essays, a mere 2 weeks before he needed to have them completed. And her response time and communication skills are outstanding.
