- Lu W. from Fremont, CA
For the first time in my academic career, I had no idea what to write for my Essay. More embarrassingly, this was a philosophy of science course, and I was a science major previously. I had some vague topics that I wanted to discuss, but as Dr. Mara B. pointed out, they were too broad. She was able to guide me in the right direction, give me some inspiration, and find a much more concrete, refined, defensible argument?with connections to the readings and sources as well! This was one of the best essays ever. Don?t be put off by the price tag. It was worth every single penny.
- Eric G. from Austin, TX

Dr. Mara helped my daughter with complex college-level sociology content and provided clear and helpful tutoring. She also demonstrates a true dedication to help her students through follow up communication and sharing of resources.
