Testimonials

I just got accepted to UW Engineering! My parents are so happy too!

Bellevue student, University of Washington 2026

Laila was a highly reliable source of information and support for our son as he approached his later years in high school as well as his college application. She is calm, organized, and experienced. I felt confident any time I reached out to her with a question, that her guidance was solid. Lastly, our son was accepted to the university of his choice!

Bellevue parent, Cal Poly 2025


Thanks for everything! It's been quite the ride but I'm incredibly excited to go to school in the fall. Without you I wouldn't be where I am so I can't thank you enough!

Bellevue student, University of Washington 2024

Laila provided great insights and tips for my daughter during throughout during the college application process.

It was really helpful for us on keeping the process on track to submit the applications on time, and regular sync-ups. 

Her viewpoints were really helpful for us in selection of right college - considering my daughter's interest, current COVID uncertainty and multiple options to choose from. Her guidance surely helped for us to take right decision. 

She is always open to help on very short time for any random questions related to application and college specific advice whenever needed. 

I will surely recommend her help to families and students looking for right guidance in stressful process to take anxiety away and take right decision with great rationale. Thank you, Laila again for all your help and continued support!

Sammamish parent, Boston University 2024

Laila really knows High Schools and their requirements as well as all about the colleges and what they want in an applicant!  I was amazed that she knows so much about each college and their specific personality and how it would be a fit (or not) for my son! She has been a teacher for years, raised 2 boys of her own who went to highly selective colleges, and has helped many high school students get into the college of their choice!  My son would not have been accepted to Vanderbilt without Laila's savvy, keen awareness for what is needed all through HS, and specific help with test taking and essay writing!  We owe his happiness in college to Laila's counseling expertise.  Call her now!  Even if your student is a Freshman--she can help pave the way to success!

Beth Zobel, Bellevue parent, Vanderbilt 2022

Thanks for your help! I was able to get into my dream school UW CS!

Redmond student, University of Washington 2022

Laila and my son developed a great partnership that was vital to the college process. Her vast knowledge of what colleges are looking for, keeping a detailed scheduled of when applications were due, and regular check-ins with my son were invaluable. Her commitment and personal touch are what make Laila unique. I highly recommend her services!

Bellevue mom, Texas Christian University 2023

So excited to be going to Wharton! It is my dream! Thanks for your help with my essays!

Bellevue student, University of Pennsylvania 2023 

Laila really knows the ins and outs of navigating the college application process.  She knows how to find colleges that really suit the student's and parent's needs and concerns for things like location, cost, size, atmosphere and experience. Laila worked with my younger son his senior year.  She helped him make a list of colleges to apply to and then the two of them kept refining it until my son had a really solid list of safety, target and reach schools.  Having this sorted out put both of our minds at ease.  But where Laila really excelled was with helping my son with the college essays.  Writing the essays was an overwhelming endeavor for my son.  Laila would sit down with him and guide him through the process with a calmness and patience that allowed him to put forth his best work.  I am truly grateful for her steady guidance.  Laila also worked with my older son who is currently in college.  He was considering changing his major and wanted advice on how various majors would impact his job marketability after graduation.  She was a great help to him.  I highly recommend Laila to any family looking for excellent help in preparing their student for the college application process.
