Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life… And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

STANFORD Commencement Address, 2005.

SAT score

Many students come to me. Some have lots of time, some are very short of time and come at the last moment. 

Some are somewhat motivated, others live and breathe for their goal of attending a prestigious US university. 

The students who are personally motivated always win. These are the students who make the most out of my guidance. 

With two such students I had the honor of working for only a month before the October 2021 SAT exam. One of them came to me with a verbal score of around 500 (1100 total) and the other one with about 1400 (but without doing the exam on time). The first student got 1480 on her exam and the second: 1530. Congratulations Betty and Yulia. I am so proud of you!

I was one of the students sitting 100 meters away from Steve Jobs during that Stanford Commencement in 2005.

I had been an international student at Stanford, admitted on a full scholarship in 2001. I had no one to help me with my applications, my parents didn’t know that I was even applying to the US, and I didn’t even have my own books so I had to go to the library every day and study very, very hard.

It is my dream to help bright and motivated students who have a vision and want to do something good for the world. I want to guide them so they don’t have to do it all alone. Dreams come true, and I hope they come true for you as well!
