Reviews

"Privitera helps students to keep their eye on a goal and a prize from day one of college, and he helps them to understand that long-term thinking can enhance all areas of life."

"The single most impressive aspect...is the concrete plan outlined for how students can plan for applying to graduate school, as early as their freshman year."
