Bates, Bowdoin, Dartmouth, Duke, Wesleyan, Georgetown, GWU, Pepperdine Admits
I have accepted admission to Duke. Despite the late and stressful nights studying for the ACT or you having to strangle me to do something before I actually did it, over the years you have helped me grow as both a student and person tremendously! Although the letter you gave me suggests a rather humble contribution [from you], please know you have helped shape me and prepare me for my time at Duke and beyond!

Excellence on AP World and 33 on the ACT!
Our son received excellent one-on one tutoring for his AP World History exam. He believes his great score was the direct result of the tutoring. He also received tutoring for the ACT test. He received a very high score (33), and we were very pleased. Not only was his ending score very high, but he ended up with a significantly higher score than that of his pre-test. We also received excellent college counseling, including information that we would not have known had we not used the service. In-depth knowledge and advice was happily provided. Son has been admitted to Wisconsin, Purdue, and the University of Maryland at College Park thus far. We are very satisfied with the results obtained, and highly recommend MyCollegeAdvisor!

University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Wesleyan Admits
Jacqueline is an outstanding college counselor. My son arrived at her doorstep with very little knowledge of the application process, and had in fact not been appropriately advised by other sources assigned to him by his large public school. Jacqueline took the time to educate him and our family about the process. She worked with him on college selection, helping him create powerful essays, prepare his resume and take advantage of the Common Application and supplements to put him in the best light. I am pleased to say that my son so far has been admitted to 7 of the 10 colleges to which he applied, including his first, second and third choice schools; we feel confident that he will receive more admissions when the remaining decisions come in. One college has offered him significant merit aid. What I appreciated most about Jacqueline is that she won my son's trust and got him to open up in ways that kids don't always do with parents around the application process. She had reviewed my older son's essays and he was admitted to Wesleyan, but the work she did with our second son was extraordinary. I highly recommend her for college counseling. Jacqueline is the consummate professional, eager to teach and make the application cycle fun and rewarding.

I first met Jacqueline while shopping at a home improvement store in 2012. She must have noted my frustration with the salesperson's lack of knowledge. Being a true educator, Jacqueline introduced herself and began to tell me which plants would best suit my garden. She even offered to drive by house to assess the sun's impact on my garden! When she gave me her card, I noticed that she was not a botanist, she was a college advisor! To be honest, I had never heard of such, but I knew that if she was as kind and knowledgeable with me, she would be perfect to help my son with his IB/AP exams. Jacqueline began to work with my family to prepare both of my children for standardized tests, summer study programs as well as the arduous college application process. With her help, my children have surpassed not only their academic pursuits, but Jacqueline has helped to fortify their confidence and their character. Jacqueline's work goes far beyond the classroom. Her impact is far reaching and will continue to contribute to my family for the rest of my children's lives. Needless to say, my sons have received many awards, scholarships and admission to top universities. My children-and my garden-are flourishing! Thank you Jacqueline!

Elon, Furman & University of Maryland-College Park Admits
The college application experience was exhausting and challenging for us considering everything we had going on in our lives over the past year. You were extremely helpful during the late stages process, and I regret we did not discover your services earlier on in High School. Considering what I have learned about the application process and selections, costs of colleges, scholarships, test scores, reviewing and touring schools, and how my daughter responded, I would have done many things differently if I had known earlier. However it was great to see her accepted into so many colleges she applied to. I would be happy to write a review on your site, and we will be recommending you to other friends we know.

Thank you for being an excellent educator! I would encourage any student or parent looking for educational assistance to make Mrs. Grazette their first choice! Educators like Mrs. Grazette are not easy to find and we feel blessed to have found her through the tutoring service. Her father and I are so happy that our daughter has been able to excel in the last six months while working with Mrs. Grazette in math and writing. Mrs. Grazette started out as [our daughter's] tutor for SAT Prep; then as her College Adviser, and finally Mrs. Grazette extended her role assisting [her] with summer employment. We are truly pleased and excited about [our daughter] being accepted into her four top choice colleges and we have Mrs. Grazette to thank for her phenomenal services. Her invaluable skills and determination as an educator, tutor and college adviser went beyond our wildest hopes and dreams for our daughter. Our daughter wishes to extend her sincerest thanks. Mrs. Grazette has helped build the foundation for improved academic achievement, focus and social interactions. The impact of her help is so significant; it will help [our daughter] for the rest of her life. I as a parent truly can't thank Mrs. Grazette enough and will be forever grateful.

Jacqueline G worked well with me and tried very hard to meet my needs. She gave many hours to my project and helped me think through the information needed for strengthening my preliminary research proposal for my dissertation. I would not hesitate to recommend her to another family, or use her again, if needed. She is absolutely wonderful.
