Success Story:

“Marilyn made me realize how full my plate really was, and how well I could balance it. She was always welcoming and went out of her way to help me out. I would come over every week and she would always have snacks ready. I would never want to take any, but by then end she would break me down to get a little water and a cookie for the road. She helped me write some of the best essays in my life, and I am confident they had a pivotal role in getting me into all six of my colleges. I am glad to have gone to Mrs. Kaufman, it made the college process simple!”
