I've always cared about expanding my english vocabulary and grammatical skills. I find it comes in quite useful for a professional career. The assistance I received gave me the confidence to excel in my professional and personal life. Lois has expanded my knowledge of the english language and I would recommend her to anyone seeking assistance or just looking to expand their knowledge of the english language.
Working with Best College Admissions Counselor has been a wonderful experience! He has helped with the process of applying to grad school, from researching schools to submitting my applications. As a student, I feel confident that working with Best College Admissions Counselor was the best decision I made in order to achieve my goals and I strongly recommend them to anyone who would like assistance with the college admissions process. Thank you so much!
I worked very closely alongside Cindy Chanin during the college application process and am able to say that my experience was truly amazing. After countless hours of hard work and dedication on both ends, we were able to create a beautiful personal narrative, a collegiate resume, and school specific supplemental pieces etc. Cindy was the an incredibly supportive and inspiring mentor through this process and without her endless guidance and wisdom I would not have been able to acquire the incredible results that I did. Cindy was exceedingly professional, responsive, and punctual throughout my time with her. I cannot imagine what the college application process would have looked like without Cindy in the picture, she was my hero, and I'm so grateful to have met her as someone I look forward to having in my life, beyond.
Sarajane tutored my son for the October 2015 ACT. He was enrolled in Elite Prep all summer and seemed to be stuck in a score rut in the 30-31 range. Sarajane stepped to push him into the next range and he achieve a composite score of 33! She was very well organized, attentive to his particular needs and extremely personable. We plan to engage her again for SAT subject tests and overall college application planning. We are lucky to have find her!!
Our daughter has only done one session with Marissa at InSight so far but we are thrilled with how it went. We thought we were hiring an SAT tutor but Marissa is so much more. She is very experienced in the whole college application process as well and is coaching our daughter on how to apply for -- and get accepted to -- her favorite schools.
Its been a year since I have used the services of Future Expectations and upon reading the great reviews, I remember that I never shared the wonderful experience that I had with these guys. They helped me to focus on what really mattered even when my personal life seemed to be in shambles and now I am just where I want to be in my college education and also with a bright future ahead. I am truly grateful for what they have done and I hope that you too will be able to benefit from working with them.
I would highly recommend Great Expectations College Prep for anyone with a child planning to attend college!! I've had two daughters go through her program. From SAT/ACT prep to the college application process. Jennifer and her staff gave my girls the confidence and knowledge to take ownership of the college process. Jen and her staff gave all the tools my girls needed to do their best on their tests and guide them through the schools that best met all their needs. The entire process was VERY easy, without stress and my girls happy. I'll be using them for daughter no. 3 in a few years.
Nick strikes a great balance as a counselor and tutor. Though he's incredibly knowledgable in his field, he retains a certain approachability, a down to earth quality, that renders meeting with him simultaneously productive and enjoyable. I used to dread working on my college applications and studying for my ACT, but by being a tutor AND a friend, Nick made the whole process a lot less of a chore. With his help, i got into my dream program at New York University and am incredibly excited for the fall. College Prep and Education and general need more folks like Nick Soper.
I found Francesca through a mutual friend when I needed help in my Psychology courses at Azusa Pacific. English is not my first language and while I understood the material, I was finding it difficult to pass the assignments because my English was not good. She was very honest from the beginning that her Psychology experience was limited, but I hired her anyway and am so glad I did. She always understood my material and had no problem helping me with small and large assignments. She even assisted me in a college level statistics course that I could barely understand in the beginning. My grades worried me so much, but after working with Francesca, I have nothing to worry about anymore and will graduate with my Bachelors in Psychology in December 2017. I am so grateful to her and all the hard work she put in with me. She has an excellent personality and I don't know if I would have made it this far in my degree studies without her.
Teri is so knowledgable and helpful! She really helped my daughter identify the right colleges for her, gave her great advice and help with her essays. She is warm, and easy to work with and I would highly recommend her to help you in the college application process! 😊
Debbie is wonderfully enthusiastic and inspiring! Not only did Debbie do an outstanding job at helping our daughter with the college application process, but she also helped build our daughters confidence along the way. The whole college application process is quite stressful, and Debbie was able to break things down in such a way to help our daughter cope with the stress effectively She was always available to answer any of our daughters questions, or parents questions as well. I found Debbie's help to be invaluable
Rand was exceptionally helpful with my son's college application procedure and ultimate school selection. His expertise and guidance made my son's college search experience much less daunting than it could have been. Rand's approach is all encompassing. He is well versed in the entire process, utilizing lots of college app resources, his terrific writing skills and his funny, warm personality. During his junior year, my son (Scott) and Rand worked closely together to develop an entire strategy which included test prep, application paperwork, and a compelling personal story that would be relevant to each of his college choices. Rand's style also helped to increase Scott's confidence, allowing him to understand that he would be fine at any of the schools he chose. This helped make my life easier as well - that first senior semester is extra stressful for everyone (Scott ultimately was accepted at his first choice, but he really believed any of his choices would have been great too). I would highly recommend Rand, and believe his help could benefit other college bound juniors and seniors.

We know that no two students are alike. This is why we offer a variety of services that allow you to choose how you approach your college admissions process. While some of our students utilize all of our services, depending on your year in school, you may only need a transcript review and advice on classes; another student may really need an assist with essay writing; while still another may want us to put together a calendar of applications. Whatever you want, we tailor a program to fit your needs and your timetable.
