Students Say...

I was able to achieve the necessary grades in high school along with high ACT/SAT scores
to attend my top college choice. Not only is she professional but caring and always available for consultation. Her method of coaching cannot be described as anything less than amazing.

Student @ University of Texas

Neha stopped the anxiety in my house. My parents were focused on getting me into a good university. I was under so much pressure. We were all so stressed. Using the strategies helped me to get into my number one choice!

Student @ Appalachian State

I had a few essays that I needed to prepare and this helped me to organize my essays and to know what order I should put my sentences and where I should put different emphasis on. I got into my number one choice.

Student @ Private School

I was, honestly, extremely unorganized. I would not be able to find stuff. I’m finding now that I know how to grasp this process much easier than before. Their tutoring, test prep, and college admissions was amazing. I got so much money in scholarships, and I love the college I am at!

Student @ Top 10 School

They’ve taught me a lot more of how to get through things quicker and how to kind of just eliminate… process of elimination and just to kind of take it on in portions and not get so overwhelmed with the process.

Student @ Top 50 School

I have worked with College Shortcuts and Elite Private Tutors for over 5 years, and I got over six figures in scholarships. I am sitting in my dorm room right now, and I can tell you, it is awesome!

John James
Student @ Top 20 School

Neha made my entire college process easy and quick. I was able to create essays and a resume that stood out way beyond my peers. Mine essays were much deep in content and more compelling. I got into my number one choice!

Student @ University of Texas

I feel like I can breathe easier. The College Shortcuts program helped me to get so much done in less than 4 weeks. I was able to apply to my top college by working on essays and the resume portion in such a quick time compared to my peers.

Student @ University of Florida

Parents Say...

  • “ College Shortcuts has helped my child grow and feel more comfortable in what she knows. She feels like, “I’m actually learning something". We used them for over four years, and honestly they made applications so easy and fun! My child is now in their dorm room, happy as a clam, and we are barely paying anything for her tuition! ”
    Chris Robinson
    Mom of 2
  • “ The coach is such great inspiration to my child. I just could not find another coach to compare it to. We’ve had tutors and consultants in the past that we’ve hired that didn’t even seem to know the material that he’s currently studying. My son has built some personal rapport with the coaches, and I feel that there’s a real connection. They not only know the material, but my son thinks they better than some of his teachers. ”
    Co-Founder at Imagination Toys
  • “ Can’t speak highly enough about Neha and EPT services. She is always willing to go above and beyond and make you feel well taken care of – she made sure my child got the exact kind of mentorship and guidance he needed. We got exactly the results we wanted. Please note, she is the real deal, and her team is amazing. She literally hires the best people on the planet to work with your child – so make sure to trust the team as they work with your child. ”
    Carla J.
    Los Angeles Area Startup
  • “ I can’t say enough about this company. They have helped out my child when he was a junior and senior in high school.  The coaches were very attentive to my son’s needs in the various subjects and helped him based on his learning style.  I applaud Neha and her ability to match coaches to students. I would encourage a complete package with them to discover the solution in helping any student achieve the skills to earn better grades, and get into the college of their dreams. ”
    Lisa Heim
    Mom of 4 & wife of Top Patent Attorney
  • “ My children LOVE their coach. They actually look forward to meeting with him. I have found Neha, the tutor and everyone here to be helpful, very professional, punctual and well-prepared. You get what you pay for in this world and this is well worth the price. Neha and her staff have amazing academic credentials as well as a commitment to helping families with their academic needs. I would absolutely recommend this to a friend (and I have!). ”
    Kathy Mann
    Mann Eye Institute
  • “ We have used College Shortcuts for a number of years for various reasons. I cannot say enough about how much they helped my children. I was concerned about their rates at first but once I observed the coach, I knew we were getting a bargain. They were very prompt and prepared every time our session started. If you are looking for a quality company whose owner and employees really care about helping students, then you need to look no further. ”

    Mom & Nurse Consultant
