Parent & Student Reviews for Nicole
My daughter worked with Nicole on applying to BS/MD programs. We could not have done it without her. She is a master at helping students write the essays. My daughter struggled so much with finding a topic and the whole writing process. My daughter kept waiting till last minute and that is why I reached out to Moon Prep. As a parent, I struggled to help her. It was causing family problems. My only wish was that I reached out sooner!
Nicole is wonderful to work with. She has a calm demeanor and is very patient with students. Also, very knowledgeable and gave solid advice. I would highly recommend her helping your child apply to college.
