Praise from parents and students
Thanks, Jane! I can believe that the oral review of strategies [you used in session] was helpful to [my son]. I’ve been pleased with the work he’s been doing with you — thank you!
I thank you again for working with [my daughter]. This could have been an awful process to write these essays. Instead, with your guidance and leadership, I believe it has been a process of self-discovery for [her]. Again, thank you . . . this couldn't have gone better, especially during a pandemic!
[My son] completed and submitted his [assignment] last night. He had added a few more sentences and asked me to proof prior to submitting. Wow! I’m so impressed by the progress he’s made these past few months. I can’t tell you how grateful we are to have you working with [him].
[Jane has] been a huge help with the [college essay-writing] process and have facilitated making this essay something that is truly [my son’s] own creation.
I was extremely fortunate to have help in this process. Your guidance when developing my personal essay was some of the best advice I could have received to put me in the position that I am in now.
I definitely couldn't have made it through the college application process without your help --you definitely gave me great advice that made me more confident in my writing. Thank you so much!
Jane K. was such a perfect match for helping [my daughter] on her college applications. The neat thing is that the one-on-one work has strengthened her writing abilities and those skills will certainly come in handy in the next four years and beyond!
I just wanted to let you know that I have decided that I am going to the University of Texas at Austin. Thank you so much for your help! I couldn’t have done this without you. You really gave me some great advice for my essays and helped me shorten them down while making them stand out. Thank you for all of your help and advice and for being so accommodating!
My tenth grade daughter and my son who will be a college freshman worked with Jane this summer (2017) to improve their writing and reading comprehension skills. Jane was very accommodating with scheduling their sessions, and she provided weekly written feedback which was very helpful for me to see their progress. Jane understood their strengths and areas for improvement, and they both learned a lot from their writing and reading assignments. My daughter and son greatly benefited from their tutoring sessions, and I would not hesitate to use Jane’s services again.
While I was originally skeptical of getting help from a tutor, I honestly can say that my experience with Jane gave me a really important perspective on my college essay. Having gone through many previous drafts and having many ideas on the table, Jane really pointed me in the right direction by giving me a clear angle to my writing. She helped shape my ideas into one coherent thought while also making me dig deeper, and so I ultimately ended up writing a more complete and thorough piece that I was genuinely proud of.
My son, a sophomore at Newton South High School, began working with Jane in the middle of his freshman year. The one-hour, weekly sessions were of immediate value. Jane went over writing assignments with him in detail, helping him to organize his thoughts and clarify his vision for each writing assignment. Over the course of time, his writing has certainly improved; he is now a more confident writer and a more interesting writer. Sentences are more complex and ideas are more fully developed. The written feedback that Jane provides each week is also useful to me as a parent —it gives me a clear snapshot of precisely what transpires during each session. My child’s grade in English has consistently progressed over the course of his work with Jane and he was even recommended for Honors English next year!
