Just wanted to share some good news! I was accepted to the PGSP Stanford program to pursue my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. Still waiting on a few others, but this was pretty much my top choice! Thank you for all your help with the GRE!! I'm happy to say that it paid off! Hope all is well! Chloe
My name is Steven and I was in your GRE prep course this past summer. I was happy with the score I achieved and I wanted to say thank you for giving me the confidence I needed to succeed. I found out yesterday that I was accepted into Penn State's Graduate School and will be working toward a Professional Master of Architecture degree. Regardless if I was accepted, I wanted to say thank you for helping me in my preparation to take the GRE. Steven
WE DID IT! As you already know by now (thank goodness for social media keeping us all connected) I was accepted to Columbia University's School of Nursing for its combined BS in Nursing/ Master's in Pediatric Nurse Practitioner program. I start in May, right after Memorial Day weekend and I couldn't be more thrilled!
I say "We Did It," because I truly feel like my entire entry/application process was more like a mini life journey, comprised of several supporting key people and events. I know I have told you this before but I strongly believe that ending up in your verbal section of GRE class was not an accident. People come into our lives for certain reasons and I believe we are led to those, who help us most to grow. For me, you were certainly one of those people. While you were certainly an excellent tutor, whose time and talent undoubtedly aided in improving my GRE score, you also instilled confidence in me, that was unrealized and lacking. Throughout my GRE process and even during my, at times, uphill battle with my personal statement, my sense of not wanting to disappoint you, somehow also transformed into believing in myself in a way that I hadn't before. For all of this, I am eternally grateful to you.
I know I have said it before, but please know that if I can ever be of any assistance to you, as a reference or otherwise, don't hesitate to ask. You will always have a friend in me. I would love to keep in touch and keep you updated on my Columbia journey. Perhaps I will see you at graduation next May! I know you do work with the undergraduate programs and as I will be completing my BS in May 2015 before moving onto the Master's portion, they include us in CU's undergraduate graduation festivities.

I hope you are doing well. I wanted to let you know how everything went. I ended up getting really sick and had the flu on the day of the exam. Despite this, I was able to push through and received the following: Verbal: 154, Quant: 160 and Analytical Writing: 4.5. I am more than happy with my results.I just wanted to say thank you for everything. You really do have it down to a science and understand how students can improve their scores. I went from being in the 10th percentile in Quant to the 78th percentile. I am still in disbelief.Also, I really appreciate the confidence that you have in your students. This is one thing I was lacking and it helped me so much throughout this process.I will keep you updated about Columbia.Your prep company is going to do really well! Good luck with everything. Muriel
Because of my good GRE test score, I was able to apply to Columbia early decision and had my interview this morning. At the end of it the director told me I am in!!!!Thanks so much for your availability and help on such short notice. I know things were a bit crazy for me and some of that got put on you.I have and will continue to recommend you with the highest regard to anyone I know is in need of GRE help.I hope things are going well for you. Shelley
Thank you for all your help! I just took the GRE and got higher than my goal. I couldn't have done without your (slightly crazy) study plan. Marianna
Considering the number of students, tutees and success stories you encounter---I'm neither surprised nor offended if you don't remember me. Regardless---I will never forget how much you helped me this past summer...with the GRE certainly...but more so in terms of believing in myself. Bottom line is...this doesn't happen without you. On a more professional note-a good buddy of mine is in need of an MCAT tutor---specifically with the physics, math and verbal portions of the test. I thought immediately of you. Do you tutor for the MCAT? If not---can you make a recommendation? He's had a miserable experience with his first tutor. A zillion thanks again!Hope all's well. Michael
I just want to thank you for the incredible letter you wrote for me and the confidence you gave me to take the GRE. You are a great teacher and it was so nice working with you. I wish you all the best!! Elaina
Thank you so much for your email. Also, thank you so much for instilling in me the confidence and the knowledge that I needed to excel not only on the GRE but in this entire process. I really feel my skills as a writer and a test taker have greatly improved. I also appreciate your extra touch ups to my statement; they made it sound a lot more impressive! Most of all, I want to thank you for calming my nerves and believing in me. You are a great teacher! I will recommend you highly! Amy
Hope that all has been well with you in the last month. I took my GRE this past Saturday and I exceeded my goal! Thanks to your guidance and support I got a 153 in Verbal and 150 in Quant! I appreciate your patience, dedication and concern and I will be sure toEboni
keep you posted about my grad school applications. Have a great week!
I just wanted to let you know that my GRE went well. I took the test this morning, and oddly enough, my verbal surpassed my quantitative...I ended up with 166 verbal and 162 quantitative. The course was really helpful for me, so thank you! Evelyn
I took my GRE test today and I did fantastic. I think you were a big reason why. I found your class extremely helpful. I improved significantly after taking your class. I really appreciate your hard work. Dan
I just got back from taking the GRE. I got a 164 Q/165 V. I have to wait for the official report to be sure I cleared the 90th percentile on the Quantitative Sections, but it looks good considering the data available online from the ETS (164=91st percentile). Thought you'd want to know.Thanks for the help. Jesse
I just took the GRE and thought I would share my good news. I got a 161 math and 160 verbal. While I was hoping for north of 165 on the math, the verbal score is by far a personal record and I'm pleased. Thanks again for all of your help. Ben
I was in your GRE class that ended a few weeks ago. I just wanted to thank you for your hard work. I just took the test today and did well, getting a 1540 total. I somehow managed to get 800 on Quantitative - a clear sign that a revised test is in order! Ingrid
Just finished my exam. 161 math 148 verbal, writing went really well. Overall, I'm very satisfied with all the hard work I put in. Thanks for all your help. Truly appreciate it. Adam
