What I love most about my work is making a difference. It is so satisfying to hear a student and/or parent give feedback on how my services helped them overcome an academic challenge or facilitate the college selection process.
For example, hearing a parent say, “For years, my knee jerk reaction to every poor test grade was “Did you study?” It never occurred to me to ask my son, “Do you know how to study effectively?” Iris helped both my son and me to take a different approach.”
Another example is when a student once said to me, “ I had no idea how to even begin the college search, let alone how to get organized. Iris de-stressed me and my mom about the entire process.”
That kind of feedback is so rewarding. Knowing that I helped someone meet an academic challenge, achieve their goals and find personal success.
