What people are saying...

"Having our son Aidan work with Mike was the single best investment we made during our entire college application process. Mike has a unique ability to coach - push - inspire in a way that connected with our teenager in a very positive way. The result was a true reflection of our son that was now alive on paper for others to experience.  Unconditionally recommended!"
