"Arthur has been such a blessing to our family. He worked with our daughter preparing her for college. He really worked with her on applications, financial aid forms , SAT prep. Arthur is the most organized person I know and was on top of everything. He knew where to look for all the scholarships which we did get awarded. His knowledge on everything from schools, what is required the rules , SATs , financial aid , is impressive. He was in touch with my daughter everyday sending her a word for the day to look up and write a sentence. He is a wonderful mentor and was truly a god send." - Jessica D.
