If Ariana Grande has the time to write a song thanking all her exes, then you can definitely fit a few thank you notes into your schedule, boo. No one makes it into college alone. There were teachers along the way who inspired you, coaches who wrote raving letters of recommendation, and counselors who helped […]
Every college tour I went on played out like a tiny drama. I showed up with my expectations, I felt out the vibe while the tour guide regurgitated the university’s list of useless facts and precise numbers, and by the end, I either loved that school or I hated it. There was rarely an in-between. You […]
While mandatory alumni interviews have fallen largely out of practice, some top-tier institutions still require an interview as part of the application process, and dozens of others recommend scheduling an interview for informational purposes. Whether evaluative or informational, interviews are an excellent opportunity to get some insider information on your school of choice, while simultaneously […]
I’ve always been a really big nerd. I took the SAT for the first time in middle school, I was awarded a full scholarship to attend a private high school, and to this day, there is nothing I love more than learning. Because of that, it wasn’t a big surprise to me or my family when the prospect of prestigious universities came up […]
Admission counselors are looking for a few things in every essay— check all the boxes!
Working with Brooklyn is something I will never forget! The session may have been over video chat but it felt just like we were together! She was understanding with my crazy schedule and helped me plan around it. Her teaching style is awesome: she uses whiteboards, does electronic interactions, and also gives me resources to use outside of the chats! Love her to death for helping me get through the SAT and bettering my score!
Working with Brooklyn has been so incredibly helpful throughout my college application process. Her positivity and encouraging feedback help me bring my essays to life so that I can be the best I can possibly be. I am so grateful for all of her help and truly appreciate what she is accomplishing with Nectar.
Brooklyn was the most helpful tutor I had and she made me feel so confident for my SAT! She's unbelievably smart, sweet, funny, and kind! At first I thought it wouldn't be helpful tutoring over video chat, but I was so wrong. I have taken multiple SAT prep courses but Brooklyn was by far the best. She especially helped me with math! I highly recommend her. Not only did she build up my confidence but she was so nice and talked to me like a friend!
It was amazing to do college prep with Brooklyn because she made learning such a fun experience. It was easy to understand different concepts, techniques, and SAT strategies through her teaching. I always felt very comfortable learning in her SAT class!
It was great having Brooklyn as an SAT tutor because she sat down with me and carefully explained each problem until I understood. Instead of telling me what to do like other tutors I've had, she guided me and allowed me to come up with an answer on my own. It challenged me and made me use my critical thinking skills, ultimately making me a better learner.
