    Parents Talk About Barb

    I just wanted to thank you again for all your hard work in preparing Sammy for his Boston trip. He was really great…mature, confident, articulate and most importantly, happy. Your scheduling and directions were perfect. You made our days very smooth and easy. Sammy was very comfortable in Boston. Thank you again for all your hard work and all your time that you put into Sammy, it really showed.

    – Pam K.

    Mother of Sammy K./Saint Andrew’s School Class of 2013

    Thank you Barbara for working so diligently with our son. Whatever you recommend…you have our total support. You are so professional and we trust and appreciate all that you are doing to help Andres succeed.

    – Harvey & Ivonne D.

    Parents of Andres D., SRHS Class of 2014

    Barbara, I wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for the wonderful itinerary you created for us to set us up for the Boston area. The trip could not have been better. Robert and I had some great bonding time and both came away from the trip closer to each other and with a much better indication of what we are up against in the school choice process. I could not have done it without your help.

    – Barbara O.

    Mother of Robert O, BRHS Class of 2014

    We know we are not alone in how we feel about you. You are so very much more than a coach to your students and their families. Your support and genuine interest in our children’s success and well-being is both touching and invaluable.

    – Wayne and Lisa W.

    Parents of Mia W. (Class of 2013) and Ryan W. (Class of 2016), Saint Andrew’s School

    Barbara Leventhal has done a great job in helping our daughter, Jensen, navigate the college application and scholarship application process. We interviewed several companies that offer similar services. We chose EduConsulting because we felt that Jensen would get more personalized service. I am convinced that we made the right choice. Barbara has done an excellent job! She has turned a challenging process into a great experience. Jensen looks forward to her meetings with Barbara. She made a concerted effort to get to know Jensen before suggesting specific colleges. So far Jensen is four for four in acceptances! Barb has certainly exceeded our expectations!

    – Gregg S.

    Father of Jensen S., Westminster Academy School Class of 2014

    Thanks for all your help! Hiring Barbara Leventhal was truly the best decision we made in 2013.

    Mother of Ryan R., Saint Andrew’s Class of 2014

    Although the focus of your work is to help Jonah maximize his potential as a college candidate, the by-product has been just as valuable. Jonah has become a leader who speaks with poise and conviction about his project, Dream Dorm Decorators in cooperation with Best Foot Forward. He developed committees, involved 60 kids and spoke in front of his whole school at assembly. I watched Jonah speak with passion to adults to solicit funds for the project. Jonah’s self-confidence and poise have grown along with the contributions that are coming in to support his project. Thank you for coaching Jonah to put his “best foot forward” in support of others. In doing so, you have made a lasting impact on Jonah.

    – Howard K.

    Father of Jonah K., Saint Andrew’s School Class of 2014

    Barbara Leventhal provided great insight and support to our daughter during the college application process. She read the personal statement essay that our daughter prepared and made suggestions on how to improve the focus by relating the impact of specific events rather than detailed description of the events themselves. By adjusting the focus of Zoe’s essay, it became more compelling because it was Zoe’s unique story. We were so pleased with the whole process that Barbara developed, especially when our daughter got acceptance letters and scholarship offers from her targeted universities.
