Client Testimonials

College Counseling "Based on my interests in sports marketing, Michael encouraged me to build my own shoe trading business. I could say in my applications that I had started my own business and earned thousands of dollars before graduating high school." - Kevin, Maryland
English "I had always been strong at finding the key points in texts, but I was never able to connect ideas strongly enough in my essay writing. Michael taught me the flow that raised my English grade from a B to an A." - James, Taipei
AP History "Document-Based Questions on the AP World History exam usually overwhelmed me, because there was so much information to process in such a little time. Michael’s ThinkSTEP writing process reduced my stress and gave me more time to complete my essay." - Emily, Linkou
AP History "How is it possible to write an essay that connects five random quotes and a map of colonial Africa? Michael helped make it easy, and I got a 5 on AP World History." - Josh, Hawaii
AP Politics "When studying politics, I had no idea that a government’s decision could be impacted by so many different factors. Michael helped me understand how to clearly break down various viewpoints, discover the degree of their impact, and effectively explain how the government should pursue a specific policy." - Jordan, Missouri
IB English It is extremely challenging to analyze multiple poems all at once. Michael’s ThinkSTEP process helped me achieve the top possible mark of 7 on IB English Literature." - Mary, Taipei
