A common phrase around my house for the last two years has been “Let me text Heather and ask.” Whether it was a quickly approaching college essay deadline or a looming SAT date, Heather has been flexible, consistent, and extremely knowledgeable every step of the way. During junior year, we worked on strategies to improve my SAT score. She does a really good job of breaking down the material in a way that was both relatable and interesting, making the seemingly impossible sections accessible. My score went up over 400 points after several months of weekly tutoring, culminating in a score well beyond the goals we had set. We also worked on college essays, and we brainstormed topics that would eventually become first drafts and continued editing from there. She went out of her way to be available when I had an application deadline coming up, even if it meant sending back edits after 10 p.m.! I was fully confident in her judgement and advice, and was thrilled to be accepted to some of my dream schools (Princeton, Georgetown, Duke, Johns Hopkins, Bowdoin, Dartmouth, Cornell, and more!) thanks to her help. It is impossible to place a monetary value on the guidance Heather offered me, but I can confidently say her assistance was well-worth the money.
