Congratulations to my students in the class of 2021, who were admitted to Yale (early), Northwestern, Emory (with a merit scholarship), Georgetown (early), Cambridge (King's College, Economics), University of Virginia (early, out of state), University of Michigan (early, out of state), UCLA, UNC-Chapel Hill & Honors Carolina (early, out of state), Boston College, Wesleyan, Bates, Colgate, UW-Madison (early, out of state), Tulane, Case Western (with merit scholarships), Miami University of Ohio (with a merit scholarship), Indiana University (with merit scholarships), and Indiana University's Kelley School of Business (with a Dean's Scholarship)!
From a parent: "Thank you so much for the wise counsel and support you have given our daughter. Your guidance and overall approach have given her so much confidence and fortitude and I am really grateful."
From a recent student: "Sara Su's patience and willingness to go above and beyond for her students has set her apart from any teacher or coach I have ever worked with. In just a few short months, my writing and ability to problem-solve both improved tremendously. Sara Su has taught me how to research thoroughly, write with specificity, and break challenges down into small, manageable pieces. And above all, my sessions with Sara Su helped me remember why I love to learn. I could not have managed the college application process without her."
