Economics Major at Harvard
My favorite part is hearing the students get excited about success they have had. I am currently working with a mentee who is trying to set up a program at his school where students will visit seniors at the local nursing home. Hearing him talk about his passion for the project, laying out the project plan together, and trying to help him succeed has been extremely rewarding.
Computer Science Major at Cornell
One of my mentees has brilliant technical skills, and he wanted advice on how to market himself. I helped him find competitions so that he can show off his work, and aided him in creating deliverables to support his projects, like engineering notebooks, blog posts, etc. We're still in the process of building a story around his profile, and it's exciting to see the parts come together.
Student, Class of 2020
My mentor, Zane, has been very helpful in helping me get organized and has made it easy to think about what ideas I may want to pursue in the future. For as long as I have been part of the program, Collegevine has been helpful in preparing and organizing me for the events in my life.
Parent, Class of 2021
Wanted to start planning for college early. The assistance, aka motivation she gets from her mentor who is currently attending her dream school is doubly helpful! I want our children to be successful and I think CollegeVine has a plan in place to help them. It’s remarkable that they are using students attending some of the best schools mentoring our children.
Sophomores and Juniors
Want to get a higher score to reach your college goals? We’ve boiled the SAT down to a science. The CollegeVine SAT program is designed to help you improve your score as efficiently as possible by tutoring you on the areas that will drive the biggest score increases.
99%ile score, University of Pennsylvania
I'm committed to breaking down the perception of SAT and standardized exams as impenetrable. Rather than test a student's general knowledge, the SAT overwhelmingly tests students' knowledge of the SAT itself. And because this knowledge is purposefully made hard to come by, I hope to impart the strategies necessary for students of all backgrounds and circumstances to succeed on the SAT.
99%ile score, Swarthmore College
Helping students improve their performance on the SAT is really important to me because I remember exactly what it was like to incessantly stress over my standardized test performance and place undue pressure on myself. I remember struggling with the fact that I felt like a "bad" test-taker always falling short. Then, I found the right test strategies and methods that worked for me. I want to help other students see their potential too and make lessons as enjoyable as possible.
Parent, Class of 2020
Our son's SAT score went up 100 points after 6 sessions. He is planning on additional sessions before taking the exam again.
Student, Class of 2020
I felt that CollegeVine has really helped me understand the SAT’s method of asking questions much better than ever previously.
Juniors and Seniors

Engineering Major at Stanford
I enjoy working with CollegeVine students because I love seeing my clients grow throughout the process of writing and learning how to present themselves in a compelling application. Being involved with everything from their interview prep to their school selection has allowed me to develop strong mentoring relationships with them and pass on some of the critical advice and aid that I was able to receive in high school.
Neuroscience Major at Yale
What I love most about working with CollegeVine students is the personal relationship I build with them through our work together. The application process necessarily involves learning and expressing important truths about yourself; in sharing those with one another, my students and I form connections in a matter of weeks that most people take years to cultivate.
Student, Accepted to Yale and UPenn Class of 2022
The most important aspect wasn't just the text editorial support, but the mental and emotional support and understanding. Especially from my coach Adam Kershner, who really made me feel understood and went the extra mile to let me feel like I put my best foot forward.
Student, Accepted early to Yale Class of 2022
I literally LOVE CollegeVine. The support you provide is unparalleled. It keeps me very calm. Knowing that I have a team of supporters rooting for me every step of the way is SO nice. I really appreciate it.
Parent, Son Accepted ED to Johns Hopkins
I wanted to thank you for all the help as my son K got early admission into Johns Hopkins. He may still need some support as needed but essentially the work for apps is complete. I wanted to let you know that it made a huge difference for Kavan. They were very thorough and professional. Thanks again and Happy Holidays.
