Katya was absolutely key in getting our son to write not just good, but great essays. He had a story to tell about himself that as parents, we were unable to coax out of him. However, with Katya he was immediately willing to go further than we thought possible. Her professionalism and confidence in him was a determining factor in his willingness to take direction and share more of himself. He got into every school he applied to and for those that were a real reach, it was undoubtedly his essays that made the difference.
