    Bounce-Back Testimonial

    Student: Nathan B. @ UCLA

    "I had a rough time in my first semester of college. I had done well in high school, so it really threw me that I didn't get great grades in college. So much was different -- social scene, academic expectations; I was much more on my own.


    I'm glad my mom found Take On College. I wish I had known about Dr. Joel sooner. I now recommend him to all of my friends. He really understands how to help me make the most out of my time here."

    Jump Start Testimonial

    Student: Anna C. @ Harvard

    "After four weeks at college, it was apparent to me that I had an advantage over my peers. I already had the skills to manage my time efficiently while still enjoying college life!


    Everyone else around me was getting overwhelmed and so stressed! I'm lucky to be a part of this elite program."


    Parent: J. Fischer, P.S. District Leader, NJ

    "Dr. Joel has helped me to focus not only on what students need to be successful in school, but what they need to be successful in life beyond the classroom...


    When it comes to your kids, you would do anything to be sure that they're successful, that they're well-adjusted, but most of all that they're happy... Dr. Joel truly understands the concerns of parents, and the range of student challenges."
