It's very reassuring to know that we have someone so knowledgeable to go to, who can give us answers to all of our questions...thank you again for all your advice and assistance!"

“RightFit was great! John helped us with our initial selection of colleges by giving us a detailed spreadsheet that was tailored to both of my children's interests and academic strengths. He walked us through all the steps of the application process and helped with everything from essay review to interview prep to campus visit planning. John was very easy to work with and was willing to answer any questions we had.“

"I want to give John a great big hug for all of the wonderful support he gave to my son (AND to me and my husband) during this most stressful time in our lives -- the college application process. He was so patient in helping my son narrow down his choice of colleges, preparing the application, including providing spot-on guidance so my son could create winning essays, and working to greatly improve my son’s interviewing skills. John’s advice was invaluable and, with his help, my son was admitted to Yale! John, you have been such a pleasure to work with -- thanks again!"
Deborah Kramer, Scotch Plains, NJ
"John and his RightFit services have transformed the college process for us. His scheduling, patience, guidance, dedication and knowledge kept my son on track and relieved our stress. With RightFit's help, my oldest son was accepted at his first choice, Columbia, and couldn't be happier! We valued John's assistance so much we engaged his services for our second son who also benefitted tremendously from working with John and gained acceptance into most of his top choices and is now enrolled at Georgetown. We highly recommend John and look forward to working with him again for our next child.
