"I want to thank you for all that you have done to help E make it to this point. Without your help she would not be attending Hopkins this Fall. At this point it is up to her to take the reins and run with them. I hope she is up to the task. Your assistance has been invaluable."

"I recently switched from being pre-med and am hoping to enter a PhD program next year. . . thank you for all the test prep you've helped me with. I just took the GRE today and my preliminary scores on both verbal and qualitative are both 170/170. The skills I learned from you definitely helped!"
