“I was very lucky to receive the help of Newton Education Services' team when I applied for the Hubert H. Humphrey School of Public Affairs in the US. They are extremely professional and knowledgeable. Through their guidance and support, I was able to strategize and prepare an application that perfectly reflected my attributes and traits, showing how I can be the best fit to the institution that I am applying for. As I receive my acceptance letter today from U of M, I am eternally thankful and grateful to Newton and their team. This was a lifelong dream that they helped me realize. Simply they are the best at what they do.”

“Going through the admission process of a prestigious university is a tedious and terrifying process. Hadn't it been for the technical and moral support of the NES team every step of the way, I would not have been able to receive an acceptance offer to finish my MSc degree at my dream school. My favorite thing about Newton is that their service was customized according to my needs so it had a personal feel to it. The team was engaged in my journey, understood my story and helped me portray it to the admission committee.”

I'd known nothing about the SATs before joining Newton, except that I was going to need to. From an excellent, well-selected group of teachers, to the most comfortable and relaxing atmosphere, it was pretty easy for me to excel even given that I wasn't and have never been the testing type, meaning I did really badly on formal written exams. Thankfully, with the support of my 3 awesome teachers at the time, and the excellent curriculum and lesson plans, I was able to succeed and got a higher score than my friends (who weren't enrolled in Newton at the time) got on average. On the first time! And I didn't need to take the test more than once. I sincerely think that this experience is one you cannot get anywhere else.”

Thank you guys for everything you have done for us.
Newton’s very well organized SAT course was of great help to my daughter to understand all about SAT in just 5 weeks. I would like to thank you all for the support.
