"I highly recommend Pittsburgh Prep's college essay guidance services...The essay guidance is a wonderful exercise for your child to work through in many ways. Our daughter has taken the SAT Prep course with Pittsburgh Prep as well. Both experiences have been great and very, very helpful. Excellence all the way around from the staff from communication, to knowledge, to helpfulness and making it a fun and an overall invaluable experience."
