Few parental and Students notes…

—-“Dr Hema, We associated with you much later than we should have. It was between 11th and 12th grade. I’m so happy that we got referred to you and you agreed to help us out, though we were terribly late. Ideally I should have approached you in 2017 itself. I must admit, given the paucity of time, you did more than we had expected. You treated him like a son, not just a student. When he was stubborn about certain suggestions, you did not budge and persisted till he understood the reasons behind the suggestions. You patiently reminded him about his priorities and brought him back from distractions, when required. At the risk of sounding pompous, I must admit that you were the reason for his near-perfect essay! You had him iterate the essay till he surprised himself and all of us! You encouraged him to complete his book ‘Bitter Sugar’ and gave him valuable inputs when he faced challenges with his research. All his extra curricular activities were correctly prioritized, woven and highlighted, in a manner we would not have been able to do without your help. Your insightful guidance has landed him in his college of choice, Johns Hopkins. Thank you🙏 very much. You have helped a young boy with dreams wake up to the sweet reality of success! Regards” –( Vidhi) Parent.

—-Hi Hema, Thank you for providing the support and guidance we needed for Nithin’s college process. He has got admission into some really great schools for CS. It was a long journey to get here but with your help it was easier. I recall the very first meeting we had at the junior year and right away felt we should have reached out to you sooner. Your knowledge walking us through the college application process, what Universities look for, attention-to-detail, and what else our son needed to do fill in the gaps was simply incredible. You were persuasive until his essays were solid and his applications were submitted right. There were 2 things that felt me more connected with you than anything else. 1. When he was getting his initial college rejections I used to pick up the phone and just vent out to you any time of the day. You patiently listened. You always encouraged us and told us not give hope and told us he will get into great colleges.You were so optimistic when we needed you the most. 2. The other thing that surprised me was that you never reminded me of paying the amount we owed you. We were always behind on the payments and you told us to pay whenever we can.You were more focused into making sure he got into a great school rather than treat us like a business client. For these 2 things, we are eternally grateful. I thank my friend who referred me to you. And my friends will thank me for referring you to them.Wishing you the best in everything in life. Thanks! —-(Yamuna) Parent..

—-“Dr. Hema was extremely helpful throughout the college application process! She gave step by step advice on how to approach college applications and followed up to make sure I was on track. After an initial consultation, she identified various areas of strength and weakness. She helped modify my application to highlight my strengths and gave me advice on how to improve my weaker areas. She has a lot of great ideas on what direction people should take their essays (mine was discarded/revised multiple times before I was happy with it), and how people can improve their extracurriculars (she put me in contact with a publishing company so I could publish a book I had been working on) among other things. Perhaps the most impressive thing about her, however, was her help with thorough preparation for interviews for colleges, internships, and volunteer positions. She was available every time I had questions and promptly replied with helpful tips. I would advise that you contact her earlier rather than later so you can get started with the application process. She will be able to guide and help you get accepted to your dream college!!” –( Sanchit) Student.

—-Dr Hema was very helpful in getting me into my dream college of Duke. She guided me to the college selection process, summer internships , helped with building a strong resume. The highlights were in the drafting of the essays. She gave me wonderful ideas and edits for the essays. The interview preparation process made wonders. Thanks Dr Hema for your guidance. –(Student

—-“I started going to Dr. Bharath late junior year feeling desolate about my chances of getting into a good college. Although I should have began working with her earlier, she spent a lot of energy making sure my essays and college profile were well above standards. She was of great help in encouraging me when I felt low and constantly checked in to ensure I was challenging myself and performing to my best ability. With her help, I was able to write excellent essays and frame my application in a way that helped me gain acceptance to Johns Hopkins. Her guidance was pivotal in my acceptance, and I am very glad I had the opportunity to work with her. Without her help I could have not come this far. Thanks Dr Bharath!” –(Nivedita) Student
