Students' Speaking

The college counseling here at Mavin Center has truly met and exceeded my expectations. Mr. Rose and Caroline, do a superb job in introducing and familiarizing the college application process – taking it baby steps before delving into the complications. Their college website provides most of the commonly sought information, such as the tuition for each college or university, the percentage of female/male students, average SAT/ACT scores, average GPA, and much more. Since everything is in one, convenient place, the website has saved me a lot of time and provided the most time-efficient way to get information. Some counselors work their job based on the idea of “I’ll get you into college,” but with Mr. Rose and Caroline, they run their idea of not only getting students into college, but also with the idea that students need to enjoy their time in college, finding the right niche to obtain the ‘perfect’ (supposedly) four years there. Gruesome and tedious is the college application process, and I couldn’t have done it without Mr. Rose and Caroline’s help in everything.

Mr. and Mrs. Rose are not just any college counselors. They are life mentors to students and a team who genuinely want to help others with the college application process. I loved how they were super detailed about the application process, keep everything very realistic, and also share their knowledge and teach lessons not only applied in the college application process, but also in life. Alongside the student, Mr. Rose and Mrs. Rose conquer the research and building the college application list, essay writing and revision, and work on other supplemental parts of the college application all while tending to every student’s individual needs and wants. I definitely enjoyed the process working with Mr. and Mrs. Rose on my college application, and thank them for helping me with my college process.

My daughter has been getting privately tutored from Mavin for almost 6 months and my son has been taking the SAT classes and getting tutored in biology.  Everyone is extremely helpful, nice and both tutors have helped my kids immensely with not only their grades, but also with their studying, organizational and test taking skills.  Plus, my son’s SAT score went up by 219 points!  He took another SAT class before at another company and found it to be boring and ineffective.  This was the first time he found himself happy and engaged and the results showed!  If you want your child to be recognized as an individual and treated that way and not have a company use a cookie-cutter approach, then give these guys a try.  You won’t be disappointed!
