Kelly, Mom from Pennsylvania

Elaine has become like a dear family member to us. Both of my kids address her as an older sister as an endearment! She helped both of my children plan out their high school academic and extracurricular activities and helped my older child get into a wonderful university in DC area. My younger child is still receiving Elaine’s planning and coaching. Elaine is good with children and they love her in return. She has an infectious, positive energy that motivates the kids and knows exactly what each student needs to reach their potential. In addition, she keeps all of us (parents and kids) focused on the tasks and the process. Her attention to detail is profound. I don’t think that we would have been able to manage all the college admission requirements without her help. She ensured efficiency and delivered a perfect presentation of my child’s college application. Elaine truly cares about her students and has their best interests at heart, and even took personal time to meet with my children over coffee or dinner. She didn’t have to do that, but she wanted to see how they were doing outside of school. I recommend Elaine to every family out there. With her and her team on your side, you will never have to worry about the daunting process of going through high school and preparing for the college admission process. — On Educational Planning and Coaching & College Admission services

Passionate and highly experienced

My daughter graduated high school in the UK and Elaine Lin supported her throughout the entire U.S. application process. Elaine was a joy to work with; she is professional, passionate and highly experienced, and has a strategic understanding of what each college is seeking in an applicant. She is highly organized and attends to every detail while creating space for the student to explore and develop their own unique voice, ideas and themes. Elaine will not stop until everything is right. She spent hours reviewing and editing my daughter’s Personal Statement and essays, encouraging her to present herself in the best possible light. I credit Elaine with my daughter receiving offers from many top U.S. colleges and in finally choosing Columbia University. — On College Admissions services
