Our Clients Say . . .
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Sequoia Student (U.C. Berkeley)
The fact that Roxana believed so much in me from the start motivated me to keep working hard. It definitely helped to have someone other than a parent or school counselor closely reading my essays, because Roxana’s investment in getting to know me in the first few meetings I think helped her have a valuable read on what I should include in my application. Roxana pushed me to put my best ability forward through this process, and no matter what school I end up at, I will never have regrets of the application process.
Carlmont High School Student (University of Puget Sound)
CollegeCalm literally makes the process calming.
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.
