"Dear Melissa, Just wanted to let you know that Colin was THRILLED with the session last night. He came home and could not stop talking about how fun and productive it was. He thought the two of you worked really well together, which I take to be a testament to your encouragement and support and to your ability to make your students feel comfortable. Most importantly, he felt that you helped him improve the essay tremendously, and he's looking forward to additional refinement with your assistance.

So, in a nutshell, thank you very much for your help."

"Melissa gave me great support as I went through my college essay-writing process. Whether I had a full-fledged draft, or just a few ideas on how to tackle a prompt, I could always go to her for help. She helped me articulate my ideas in a clear and effective way, and I'm very happy with the essays that I submitted. The best part of working with Melissa is her sense of humor, and thoughtful input. She created a kind and comfortable environment where I could relax and find my voice. Whether you're having trouble answering a prompt, need someone to refine your work, or just stressed out by the application process, working with Melissa will be extremely helpful."

"Michael had a passion for writing before he met Melissa but she has helped him to approach his writing with a renewed sense of focus and creativity. As parents, we could see Michael's confidence growing this summer as he participated in teen writing camp and private coaching. This confidence was evident as Michael successfully completed his writing assignments for a summer history class. Michael is looking forward to continuing his relationship with Write from the Heart into the school year."
