Introduction: My team and I specialize in helping high-achieving students area with all aspects of the college admissions process. In fact, of the students who signed up for comprehensive counseling with my team, 95% of my students were accepted into their top choice college. My expertise stems from having been an admissions reader for Northwestern University, the UC system, as well as Claremont McKenna College. My experience reading applications for each one of these schools has greatly influenced how I work with students. I am a current member of NACAC, WACAC, and IECA. Through these organizations, I have built up my network as well as gained incredible insight into the college admissions process. I know what colleges look for, and can tell you what will makes a student stand out in the eyes of the admissions committee. I start working with students as early as 8th grade to determine how they should plan the high school journey from course selection, to extracurricular activities, to academic competitions and enrichment. Here are reasons families choose to work with me: - my experience having read through thousands of applications for a variety of schools. - my knowledge of hundreds of hidden gem colleges throughout the country - my experience with financial aid and scholarships -- $20,000 annually in merit scholarship awards - experience developing student identity and brand from early on

Joyee and his staff at Thinque Prep have played an integral part in my son’s academic journey. Staring with a comprehensive SAT/ACT prep course the summer before Junior year, this program raised my sons scores substantially, and helped cultivate more focused study habits, inspired confidence, and prepared my son for a rigorous Junior year filled with AP classes. The course culminated with a seminar that taught the students about the college application process, and how the admissions faculty evaluate the whole person, not just the test scores and GPA. During the Pandemic, Joyee offered remote tutoring and sessions with AP US History, and AP Language and Composition, which he then received and 4 and 5 score respectively. The summer before senior year, Joyee mentored my son through his essay writing process. He applied to a variety of public and private schools, and Joyee’s tutelage gave my son the framework to hone his thoughts and create meaningful essay prompts. My son will be attending UCLA in Fall 2021, with a Herb Albert Music scholarship. He received 10 acceptances and multiple scholarship offers. I wholeheartedly believe he would not have achieved this goal without Joyee’s help and expertise over the last few years !

We diligently searched for the right company to have our son do ACT test preparation. Thinque Prep has been exactly what we were looking for! Joyee developed a strategic plan for our son that included taking practice tests each week, followed up by individual one on one sessions with Joyee and Michael. If you follow the plan the scores will definitely increase. We like that Joyee is attention to detail and thorough in his approach. Thinque Prep also administered a Career aptitude profile that assisted our son in selecting an eventual college major. Working with Thinque Prep has been an overall positive experience! Our son will be attending Harvard in the Fall.

I would like to rate Joyee highly because he is not afraid to provide proper direction even my son's ideas didn't match. Joyee really wanted to see my son succeed and showed us the correct path. Thanks Joyee. I would highly recommend him.

We'd looked at a lot of options online, and were really frustrated because there were so many pushy sales people trying to sell us services for $300-500 per hour. What kind of family can afford to do that? I'm glad that we found Thinque Prep because they offered guidance at a reasonable price. They helped with essays, guidance, and most importantly, they structured the process so that I didn't have to spend all day nagging my kid.

The College Admissions Experts were so kind and really wanted to see the students succeed. From giving advice to helping one-on-one, I was able to learn so much about the college admissions process and become much more confident in my personal essay.
