We could not have gotten through the college application process without the help of Nick. Nick helped my son every step of the way, from helping him make a college list, showing demonstrated interest to schools, advising on how to approach teachers for letters of recommendation, and helping with the college applications. His assistance with the college applications included structuring the activities list to display my son’s strongest strengths, providing invaluable insight on the essays to help my son stand out from other applicants, and structuring the resume for those schools that allowed a resume to be submitted. Nick was also instrumental in helping my son with a passion project to help him stand out from other applicants. All these efforts resulted in my son being accepted to all of his top college choices. I cannot recommend Nick enough to anyone that is about to apply to college! I am so thankful that we found Nick.

Grateful for Nick's guidance during our first time navigating the college admissions process. He helped us organize and provided valuable guidance and input on college application process and as a result, assisted with selection between several "dream" schools. Thank you Nick!

I felt like I have grown as a writer through my 5 months of working with Nick. His attention to detail and knowledge made me more prepared to apply for college than I ever was before. He helped me to write the greatest supplemental essays and even helped me to become a published writer. If you want to maximize your chances of admission to a prestigious college, this is definitely someone to work with.

He’s a really good counselor and prep instructor. I would highly recommend him to anyone, he has helped my son though the application process tremendously. He is very organized and created a plan with my son to find out which colleges to apply too and how to tackle the supplementals easily.

Our daughter Lucia achieved an above average score on her PSAT as a Sophomore in high school. She was determined to do better on her SATs than the PSAT indicated. After researching and meeting several potential SAT/ College admissions tutors, we chose to work with Nick Mosca. We immediately liked his energetic, positive vibe and his methodical, insightful approach to tackling difficult subject matter. Through Lucia’s junior year and into the pandemic lockdown Summer, Nick met Lucia at first in person and then virtually via Zoom meetings. He coaxed her into talking about her favorite and least favorite subjects, her strengths and weaknesses, clubs, weekend activities etc. He pinpointed areas of improvement and introduced test taking strategies. Lucia took copious notes and would review them before taking practice tests. The final result? A score greater than 200 points above her PSAT. We are ecstatic at the results they achieved together. We feel Lucia’s confidence has strengthened and college prospects have widened. Now Nick with his invaluable insider knowledge is helping Lucia edit her Common Ap essay as well as the many supplemental essays reguired by many colleges. We highly recommend Nick and can’t say enough good things about the service he offers. Thank goodness there are capable people like Nick that help young people through this process. He is well worth the investment!
