Helen was very helpful with my Fellowship application process. She was able to help me get my ideas on paper.
Helen was absolutely the best. She helped me on my GRE English Subject test, as well as my admission paper and personal statement. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to improve their verbal or writing skills!
Helen was great! She tutored me for the verbal and writing sections of the GRE and was super helpful and knowledgable. She also offered a lot of guidance in applying to grad school and helped edit my personal statement. She was very flexible with scheduling and willing to meet me wherever I wanted. She has a lot of knowledge and experience and I would highly recommend her!
Helen was my GRE verbal tutor and she was great! We went over the GRE book and she explained in details on how she got the answer. She also let me do my own problems and made sure I was on right track. She is very patient as well. I sometimes got frustrated with myself many times because I didn't get the concept, but she was understanding and reassured me that I was fine. She seemed very smart too. She knows a lot of vocabularies. She is also a student at Northwestern and I can tell that she is an expert in English language and literature. I would recommend her!
Helen helped me a lot during my preparation for my speak test. Finally I scored 72 out of 80 in the Versant test, which satisfied the requirement of the Graduate School.
