Eydie brilliantly ushered both my sons through the college process, from test prep to school options
and applications. My sons are very different, yet Eydie’s approach was perfect for both. She has an uncanny ability to quickly figure out what each child needs and work productively with them. Most importantly, my children both loved working with Eydie and felt it made the college process manageable and (dare I say?) almost stress-free.”
