Cat Gordon – Testimonial

Navigating through the college admission process is time consuming and stressful. Perhaps the most stressful part for parents and students alike are the college entrance exams. One of the best decisions we made was deciding to work with Sam and College Planning Partnerships to help prepare for the exams. What we soon realized is that Sam provides way more than just test preparation. In addition to providing top quality personalized tutoring in terms of test taking strategy, technique and content, Sam took a personal interest in my daughter Cat’s success that was beyond all expectations. College Planning Partnerships was like a support team that was helpful in all aspects of Cat’s college admissions process. As a parent, Sam was the expert I could turn to for sage advice on all the arcane details of college admissions. In terms of test preparation, College Planning Partnerships helped to build Cat’s confidence and ultimately gave her the skills needed to attain test scores that we initially felt were not possible – – a 370 point increase on the three SAT sections over her first attempt! These were the scores Cat needed to ensure entry to her number one college choice. When Cat finally received the scores that were higher than she had ever hoped for, the first thing she wanted to do was to go down to tell Sam in person, she knew Sam would be as excited as she was! Thanks again!
