Featured Testimonial

To whom it may concern,

Stan Lemons was a critical support to our son in the process of his college application. At the time Tripp applied to undergraduate school, he was very unsure of his writing skills and nervous about his ability to get into a good school. Stan tutored him not only in writing his essay for admissions, but also encouraged him to apply both to the schools at the top of his list and to some not on his list that were even more difficult to get into. He did a great deal for our son’s self-esteem.

Tripp was at the Latin School of Chicago, a private independent school, applying to a range of competitive colleges. Stan talked with Tripp as Tripp struggled with a theme to answer the various questions on the multiple college applications. Once Tripp chose a theme, Stan asked him to write the essay. With a first draft of his essay, Stan walked him through the process of editing and rewriting until Tripp had an essay that came from his heart and showed the admissions committee who he was. The essay was finished when it showed the relevance of his theme on Tripp’s life and thinking. Stan coached him, but when Tripp had a finished product, it was clearly his own thoughts and writing. It was authentically Tripp’s essay – and a well written personal statement. Walking someone through this process until they have an authentic piece of work is quite a task, and Stan seemed to be a natural at this process. It required commenting, teaching and then standing back and allowing the student to do the work himself building on his writing and editing skills. Stan was gifted at this. Tripp was accepted early admission at Kenyon College in Ohio.

There aren’t words to express how much this meant to us. As parents, we couldn’t help Tripp through this difficult task. Our thoughts and ideas were too caught up in our own hopes and wishes for our son. Stan stepped in with great skill and did a better job than we or anyone else could have done. Tripp, for once, truly enjoyed the writing process.

If you have a chance to work with Stan, I recommend you take it. You won’t be disappointed.
