“My daughter, Aja Bivens, worked with Cindy from her freshmen year through her senior year of high school. With Cindy’s extra guidance and recommendations through the rigors of her academic coursework, Aja was able to do very well throughout her high school years. Each year showed an improvement with her study skills as well as her grades. Cindy was able to teach Aja so that she fully understood her subjects and was confident in taking her tests. Aja also took Cindy’s prep courses for her SAT testing and she began these courses during the second half of her sophomore year and continued until the end of her junior year. Because she started well in advance, she was very prepared for the official SAT testing and was able to improve her scores by over 600 points from where she started. Cindy also worked with Aja to create vivid and poignant personal statements and unique essay supplements that very much set her apart in the college application process. Her applications, along with her excellent SAT scores and a strong GPA, allowed Aja to gain admittance to her dream school, New York University.”
