Our Clients Say
Sequoia Student (University of Oregon)
College Calm helped me most by getting me to go after what I really wanted. Before college calm, I thought I wanted to go the colleges that everybody else wanted to go to. College Calm helped me realized what college would be right for me.
Carlmont High School Student (University of Puget Sound)
CollegeCalm literally makes the process calming.
The most important part of the project was learning time management and motivation to do things that I wouldn’t do on my own in the summer.
I learned that by putting in real time and effort, I can actually create content that I am proud of.
Sequoia Parent (University of Notre Dame and Tulane)
The most important reason that College Calm’s services are helpful is that it mostly takes us (parents) out of the equation; we can be available to help without having to nag, prod or push. It helps save the parent/teen 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!
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.
Sequoia Parent (University of Oregon)College Calm made it seem effortless with the schedules & knowledge passed on. All the questions that we had were always answered and there was no stress between parent & student. She knew what she needed to do and when.
The best part of the SSP for me was talking to experts and putting myself out to learn more about a topic that interested me.
Burlingame High School Student (St. Johns)
My essays, I feel, turned out with the right balance of my own style and concision that needs to be demonstrated within the college-essay genre. The advice that was given by Roxana did not, in any way, hinder my creativity, but rather fashioned it into a precise voice of honesty and clarity. I am very pleased with what was created during my sessions.
