“Samantha went above and beyond. I asked her to review my essay draft, and I was impressed by how much passion she put into her job and how much she helped me. Besides leaving general comments and notes with crucial suggestions on my paper, she made feedback videos to explain how I could improve my essay. Using videos made her lesson more personal and made me better understand what she meant. Finally, she suggested websites or exercises to make my writing more compelling and, at the same time, reflect on how I truly wanted to show myself to the admission reviewers. I believe I made the best choice to choose her as my essay advisor, and I am confident that with her valuable help, I will have more chances to get into the college of my choice."Nick S.
