Paul has been terrific for our seventeen-year old son. As parents new to navigating the college admission process, he has been insightful and a great resource. He always has great advice on the next step and alleviates our anxiety that we've missed any. Here's what our son says about Paul. "Paul makes things simpler than the teachers teach them so you understand them much better. He reduces your stress so you can learn new concepts for the SAT and ACT and helps you complete school assignment too." But best of all is that Jack says, "Paul knows how to joke around but still gets the work done." I would sum it up by saying Paul had been awesome for all of us.
We met J. when our son was attending BCC in his last three years of high school. J. worked with us relentlessly for those long and difficult three years. Our son was coming from a different school system and the transition proved to be a very difficult one. While our son loved being in an American educational system, he was hardly equipped for the kind of freedom students enjoy in large high schools where you can basically choose your workload and a wide range of courses. J. came to our rescue. No other words for his help! He was our light bearer in those three years. He tried each and every possible strategy for our son and for us to cope with a bright but indolent teen ager with transcultural issues. He was our in-between with the school administration who, despite the multicultural student body, had the hardest time at understanding where our child was coming from. He helped us having our son tested for any disabilities, he listened to us talking, complaining, worrying... he listened and took mental notes of all our statements about our son. He listened to him as well, always! Every trimester J would try a new strategy with and for our son! At some point, I remember him telling us, once again, "It's a going to be a new, clean slate, a new beginning this semester, do not worry, we are going to succeed!" To which, I recall telling him, "But with all these slates, we are building a ROOF!!!!!!!!!!!" He laughed so hard... and we understood that, indeed, this man was made of pure gold, for he NEVER gave up on our son. After our son left the school, J. came to our house and helped us with college applications even after his duty as Counselor had long ended.... I doubt you need more of our reflections on J. He is the perfect counselor for any student, but in particular for those who need real, actual, serious and caring advice! our son has the fondest memory of J. and for all the good reasons! our son graduated from college in Politics, he is a wonderful and well-adjusted young adult. Much of what he is today is J.'s merit for he helped us to see our son from a different perspective and to respect him much more than we knew how to do before meeting the BEST COUNSELOR on Earth!

I hired Jovonne to advise me with my graduate application to a top five global university. It had been over 20 years since I last attended college, so I really had no idea where to start. Before I began working with her, I took a shot in the dark and wrote a statement of purpose and essay. Jovonne quickly determined that while I had a lot of good themes, my documents were missing much of the content admissions committees wanted to see. Since she attended multiple top global universities and reviewed many graduate applications, I trusted her judgment. I refocused my efforts based on her feedback and guidance, and more fully developed the themes she knew the committee would be looking for. I devoted a lot of time to improving my application, and when it was done, Jovonne did a superb job of editing my final product. She is an outstanding writer. A couple of months later, to my astonishment, I was admitted to my desired program. I honestly never expected to be admitted, but Jovonne pushed me to âaspire higher.â Itâs really a dream come true, and I could have never done it without Jovonneâs expert guidance. I absolutely and without reservation recommend Jovonne for anyone who seeks admission to a top university.
