Erika entered our life 3 years ago and completely turned my daughter's academic life around. My daughter has become an enthusiastic and inquisitive student. Although shy, she has become extremely resourceful about getting help from teachers and counselors so she can succeed in school, thanks to Erika's encouragement and example. I could go on for hours, but I'll cut to the chase - Erika is worth her weight in gold. She is intelligent, fun, creative and extremely responsible as a personal tutor.
As October neared of my senior year college applications were coming quick. I was lost in where to start my
applications or even choosing what schools to go to. As an only child I was alone in the process and needed
help… desperately! I called Erika because I had tutored with her before (went from a C to an A in Spanish).She
not only helped me write my essays for college, but she also helped me narrow down colleges to choose.
She helped me make lists of what I needed to accomplish (I'm a terrible organizer) and helped me with my resume and exactly what to write about. I thought I was the most uninteresting person and that I wouldn't be admitted anywhere. She helped me realize that I had many stories to write about and helped me narrow down exactly what I should write. Because of her, I was admitted into Baylor University with a $24,000 scholarship. Also using the Common application, I was admitted into North Western University and using the UC applications, UCI and UCR. I only applied to four colleges and was accepted into all of them.
I really enjoyed your personal statement!
Thank you so much for your help on my college apps. I could never have done them without your constant support and encouragement of your honest commentary. I really appreciate it!
"Oh, by the way I got into Caltech and UChicago on early action ;) 100% acceptance so far! Thanks for everything"
I got chosen for regents in Berkeley EECS, which is the top 1 percent of the major. I just wanted to let you know and thank you for your help.
I just wanted to update you on where I got accepted! I was accepted to UCI (Honors Program), UC Davis (Scholarship and Honors), UC Santa Barbara (Regents Scholarship), UCSD, UCLA, UC Berkeley (Semifinalist for the Leadership Scholarship), and Rice with the Trustee Scholarship (18 grand per year). I was also waitlisted to Johns Hopkins. I am very excited and am in the process of making a decision between Rice, UCLA, and Berkeley. Once again, I want to thank you for all your help. I really appreciate it!
"I just wanted to let you know that I got a 2400 on the October SAT :) Thank you so much for your help and advice! It helped me tremendously!"
"I received my SAT scores from the Oct test today and I just wanted to thank you for helping me improve my score. I managed to get an 800 on the Critical Reading section and I just wanted to say how thankful I am for your help."
