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. Several admissions officers actually reached out to tell him just that. Katya took the pressure off us as parents and rather than dread this aspect of college applications, our son was able to enjoy the process of writing about himself. We can’t recommend her highly enough.

Katya brings serenity and sanity to a process that desperately needs both. She is a gentle, steady, and wise guide who brings deep experience to the college search and application process. Katya made a huge difference of our daughter this past year and to us as parents. Also, apparently she doesn’t need much sleep; whenever we had questions, she answered not only with great care but with great speed. I can’t thank her enough.

Katya brought much-needed sanity and a reassuring calmness to what can be a stressful and, at times, insane process. Our daughter loved working with Katya, who got to know our daughter well and helped her navigate this very daunting college search. It was important to us that our daughter take the lead in all of this and we knew that she was working with the perfect college adviser. Katya’s expertise and guidance helped our daughter find the right college for her.

Katya provided the support and direction that I needed as a first time parent of a college bound child. Most importantly she provided the words of encouragement and guidance to my daughter to pursue and go after her reach school that we thought was unattainable. The extra effort made to make certain to provide the supplemental info to the application as well as a very impressive personal statement is what made the difference in my daughter’s admission. The investment made when hiring Katya will continue to payoff for my many years to come!

I am thrilled with the services Katya and Perfect Fit College provided for my daughter as she prepared her college applications this past fall. My daughter was feeling very overwhelmed and didn’t know where to begin with her application essay. With Kayta’s guidance and helpful tips, my daughter was able to write a moving essay and ended up winning a significant scholarship to her top choice of college. I strongly feel that her essay made the difference in her being awarded this scholarship, helping her to stand out among many other applicants. Katya’s services were invaluable!

Ms. Katya provided the support and expertise that I needed throughout the entire application process. She was my personal cheerleader, giving me the confidence I needed to get through all the essays. She’s an immensely talented writer and I wouldn’t be in the place I am without her and her advisement.

My daughter Janie, had to write 6 essays for admittance into the Honors College at the University of South Carolina. It seemed like a daunting task and Janie was so overwhelmed and frustrated, that she sat stuck at her desk ready to give up. We called Katya and she helped Janie so much just by talking about ideas and brainstorming. Katya was able to get Janie to think on her own about what was important to her and things that had happened in her life that would be easy to write about. Katya really opened the flood gates and after working with her, Janie was able to come home and knock those essays out on her own. This fall Janie will attend the University of South Carolina Honors College to pursue a degree in Pharmacy! Katya’s knowledge about the college application process and the way she was able to guide Janie to think on her own and then write about it are priceless!
