What Our Clients Have to Say

"Pinar Taylan's counseling is not just a standardized service given to each client. Instead, her counseling and workload differs based on your needs as an individual. 
During my application process, we had a structured and disciplined system but, also, the caring I got from her was one of a kind. I trusted her opinions more than anyone else's and knew that I could always go to her. She exceeded office hours to be there when needed, and stayed up until late nights to discuss my portfolio. 
I'm grateful for her remarkable guidance and constant support, which got me into my dream school, where I'm currently pursuing my dream career."

What Our Clients Have to Say

"Applying to college was very hard and stressful. Having Pinar Taylan as my counselor has not only made my college journey endurable but also made it unforgettable. Every week we had our scheduled meetings discussing our weekly planned subjects. She helped me every step of the way with her bright smile and encouraging speeches. I can’t forget when I was submitting my application, the first thought that came to me was to facetime Pinar because I needed to ask my last minute questions. She, as usual, smiled and calmly answered all my questions no matter how late it was. She is caring and very serious in her job, and I am forever grateful for her guidance, I couldn’t do it without her."
