From Chuck Xie & Jenny Huang, parents of a rising 10th grader at the prestigious Mountain Lakes High School in New Jersey
Goal School: Stanford University
Our bright 9th grader has always been academically excellent, but we as first-generation parents were looking for more guidance on how he should structure his high school career.
Since we’ve engaged Nan as a long-term writing & admissions coach, we’ve no longer had to worry about that aspect. Nan has included us in every step of the process and provided concrete materials (e.g. timelines, academic enrichment opportunities) that reassured us that Leon was on the right path towards well-rounded excellence.
Nan has also helped us create a better home environment, and acted as a channel through which we could communicate with our son. Nan is truly experienced in every area of the application, and also a great role model for our son.
Since she started working with our family, our son has been more engaged with his interests and more forward-thinking in his outlook. She has also tutored his writing 1:1, which has truly helped Leon expand his worldview.
We highly recommend Nan as a coach to other Chinese-American families with children in high school. Starting early has given our family concrete ambitions and peace of mind. We are more confident than ever in our son’s success.
