Foundation Learning Case Studies: Student Outcomes

Randee’s tutoring style fits perfectly with the way I like to learn. Reviewing problems with her during our sessions helped me learn new ways to tackle concepts I feel we rushed through in high school math class. Thanks to Foundation Learning, my Ivy League dreams have come true! 

With Gabriel's guidance my high school career took a positive turn! His insightful advice helped me choose and excel in meaningful activities that mirrored my interests and helped me build up my leadership skills. From founding a chess club at my school to getting into a top pre-college summer program, Gabriel's support empowered me. He also helped me create a stellar college application! 

I was paired with an exceptional  counselor who helped me through the intricate application journey. His guidance not only assisted me in recognizing my strengths but also motivated me to aim higher—the Ivy League! I cannot express enough gratitude for the encouragement and expertise. Foundation Learning was instrumental in my journey—thanks for helping me hit all every milestone confidently! 

I was surprised to see my score so low after I took my first ACT practice test at home. Although I could have gone the test-optional route, I wanted to be fully transparent and show top schools I have what it takes to succeed. That’s when I found Foundation Learning, and my tutor helped me raise my ACT score by 10 points. I’ve already recommended Foundation Learning to my friends in grades 10 and 11!

The team at Foundation Learning deserves all the praise. My counselor surpassed all expectations in his efforts to help me craft essays that really captured my personality and ambitions. With his guidance, I felt equipped throughout the entire college admissions timeline. I accepted my offer at Duke University with a full-ride scholarship thanks to FL! 

Tom helped me tackle my test anxiety and work on my time management. These two things have made working through exams challenging for me for most of my time in high school. Together, we helped build my confidence, identify coping strategies, and drive home key ACT concepts. Thanks!

Amanda's expert feedback proved to be exactly what I needed to elevate my application to Ivy League schools from merely good to awesome! After countless revisions and self-doubt, I was really tired of looking at my application documents. However, Amanda’s help gave my application documents a chance to transform it into something I was genuinely proud of. Thank you so much!

Getting the top score on the ACT wasn’t a huge shock after the level of prep I received from Foundation Learning. Boosting my score by 8 points felt easier with so many tailored homework assignments and sessions with my tutor. Their guidance inspired me to do my best.

Choosing Foundation Learning for SAT prep and college admissions consulting was one of the best choices we ever made! I’ve been dreaming of MIT since I was in grade 8, and working with Cole to get there made the whole process so smooth and easy. The turnaround time on editing was really quick and I had more than enough time to perfect my personal statement and make the most of my supplemental essays.

From the very first call, I could see that Eric’s personality and approach to ACT prep would mesh with what I had in mind. I was worried my vocabulary and reading skills weren’t up to par, so he ensured my plan centered more on English topics and taught me time management techniques.

While math has always come easily to me, reading and writing was a whole other story. I knew my DSAT Math score wouldn’t be enough to get me into a top college, so I started searching and found Foundation Learning. I found the weekly assignments and practice questions helpful as I gained more confidence in my vocabulary and comprehension skills. 

Surpassing 1500 on the DSAT and getting into Stanford weren’t things I had on my 2023 bingo card. I worked hard to get here, but I also have Foundation Learning to thank! 

Foundation Learning worked around my busy schedule, and my tutor was accessible throughout my prep program. My tutor went above and beyond to ensure his points hit home, using methods and analogies that made sense to me. This tutoring experience has been life-changing, and I can’t wait to see what waits for me at Harvard! Thanks, Foundation Learning!
