    “Lisa, you have been so kind to me. I know it is your job to teach and guide, but I have yet to encounter a tutor who works as hard to make a positive impact on the lives of her student. You give the profession a good name, and I consider myself very lucky for having you as my SAT tutor. The results that I’ve achieved are astounding! I’ve got into UChicago which is my dream school! It has been an unparalleled pleasure and honor having you as my teacher. I treasure all the knowledge you have shared with me as you gave me necessarily skills to succeed at SAT and in college!!”
