“Sylvia has a great way of getting high school students to open up about themselves and what they want which translates well into their choices of college and also how they write their college application essays.

“I cannot recommend Sylvia highly enough. The entire college admissions process is crazy, and Sylvia was a calm and knowledgeable guide throughout the whole process. She was great talking about value and the range of financial aid that might be available for my son at various schools. Finally, she’s been an absolute Godsend in the essay writing, reviewing numerous drafts. Having her has allowed me to play the “supportive parent” role instead of having to take on the “taskmaster/nagging parent” role.”
