Our Clients Say
Palo Alto High School Student (Pepperdine)
College Calm helped me line up my goals and figure out a schedule to make sure everything was my best work and turned in on time. I learned how to write both college essays and supplements (learning more about myself on the way). Although the college essay writing process is a long one, the end result was worth the work and editing. On top of being written well, I think they are representative of what kind of person I am and my accomplishments.
Carlmont High School Student (Tufts)
CollegeCalm helped reduce my stress by giving me deadlines to meet and by providing structured time to work on the essays at our meetings. Jenny also helped me when I was stuck and needed some guidance on where to take my essays. CollegeCalm helped me find what schools would be a good fit for me and helped me through the application process for each school. This really made a difference because I would’ve been totally lost without college calm as a resource.
Sequoia High School Parent (University of Oregon)
CollegeCalm made it seem effortless w/ schedules & knowledge passed on. All the questions that we came up were always answered and there no stress between parent & student. She knew what she needed to do and when.
Menlo Student (SMU)
I would like to sincerely thank you for your beneficial support, guidance and wisdom you shared with me over this past year. Our weekly sessions grew to become something I greatly looked forward to, rather than stressful college counseling meetings. I am grateful for your warm and trusting ways and your unconditional willingness to listen and provide support.
Carlmont High School Student (University of Puget Sound)
CollegeCalm literally makes the process calming.
Woodside Priory Student (Bryn Mawr)
The most helpful aspects were the exercises we did in order to start writing all the supplements and the long essay, like the worksheet about words that describe you. It’s also really great to be able to talk openly about topics, which helps in the brainstorming process. College Calm definitely reduced my stress, as it gave me a structured schedule to work with so I didn’t leave everything until the last minute. I feel great about my essays. They are definitely in my own voice, I just needed some help getting all my ideas down and organized! Having everything spaced out made the workload lighter and easier to handle
Sacred Heart Parent (Stanford, SCU, CalPoly, University of WA)
The right fit is more important than how prestigious a school is or how hard the school is to get in. Having gone through this process four times, with four very different children, I can honestly say that Roxana’s goal is help each child find the right school for them and mine have all loved the schools they’ve chosen.
Sequoia High School Student (Emory)
College Calm kept me accountable and on a schedule for completing my application and essays. This reduced my stress by a large amount because otherwise, I know that I would have procrastinated. It was also nice to get feedback and reassurance throughout so that I knew I was on the right track.
Palo Alto High School Parent (Colby College)
Our daughter ADORED Charlotte! She was the perfect temperament for her, she was incredibly organized, and she kept her on track and really ahead of schedule. Our daughter loved all of her meetings with Charlotte, and we are so grateful for this relationship.
Menlo Parent (Pitzer)
Jenny took the pressure off us as parents, helped our son to feel independent in his applications, and helped him manage his time really well — much better than I would have thought! She even seemed to help him in his organization of his schoolwork; After a career of 3.1GPS, he’s running a senior year GPA of 4.4!
