"College Connections made a crucial difference"
John Worthington - CEO/President at IBT Online
"College Connections has provided our son Giulio with an excellent professional service. It has given us support in preparing his application to UK universities via UCAS and mentoring and advice during the entire process. The review of key pieces of documentation and the training in preparation of interviews & exams contributed substantially to providing moral support from his mentor and valuable advice to Giulio during the final stages of his IB and the selection of his university. The insight and knowledge of the complex UK University system that College Connections provided us is even more valuable for international students like our son. We were very satisfied by the service received and have recommended College Connections to many friends."
Simonetta Cheli - Head of Coordination Office, Earth Observation Program, European Space Agency
“To have had College Connections was something invaluable.”
“College Connections was always ready to answer all her questions, dispel any doubts and fulfill any requests. I would definitely suggest College Connections to any other Italian student who would like to apply to university in the U.K.”
Matilde Poggi - Owner-Winemaker, Le Fraghe
"College Connections has been very helpful in giving Tommaso key advice to set his personal statement to the high level standards required by the top 5 UK universities. What is more Max has given prompt and extremely timely responses to all needs we had, including finding an SAT expert. Tommaso's personal statement opened the door to all the universities he applied to."
Carola Bardelli - Head of Italian Equity Research, Deutsche Bank

"Nils is an AWESOME tutor!
When we first contacted her I was quite weary of online tutoring however IB predictions were bound to be set based on the summer exams and I desperately needed to understand Calculus. I was not failing mathematics however I despised the subject and my grades always seemed to be a 6 tilting towards the 5 grade boundary rather than the 7.
Nils did not only teach me mathematics, but rather revolutionized my method of studying. In fact, before meeting Nils, I was tackling questions based on memorization which meant that all unfamiliar problems were greatly perplexing. Nils taught me how to UNDERSTAND maths; she taught me the logic behind the formulas rather than telling me to learn the formulas themselves and would never hesitate to re-explain something if I found it puzzling. The skills she taught me were also greatly versatile. Parallel to Mathematics I took Physics SL and, being the latter deeply rooted in mathematics, I was able to use the same methods and concepts that Nils taught me in my Science subject too!
Thanks to her help I was predicted a 7 in the summer. However, it was because of a continued tutoring that I was able to achieve a 7 in the final thing. In Upper Sixth Vectors and Probability were very daunting but learning with Nils meant that I made a huge progress; in the end I ended up being my favorite Standard Level subject!
She was always available, I would send her images of the problems I didn’t understand throughout the week and we would work through them together during tutoring. Moreover, looking over mathematics with her gave me confidence. In fact, feeling more secure in maths ensured that I could focus more on my Humanities Higher Level Subjects; if I achieved 44 points in the end it was mostly because of Nils!!
The computerized notes that we made together during our sessions were also as invaluable as Nils herself, I used them up until the last minute before I had to depart to sit my math Paper 1!
She was truly the best math tutor I could have possibly ever asked for!
Arianna Spina - Student, Sevenoaks School
"Working with College Connections to find out the best summer camp for the needs of my fourteen daughter was a great pleasure! I hope she will love to stay in UK and she will decide to attend a boarding school there!! Thank you once more!!"
Marida Martinato - Parent, Milan
"Our experience with College Connection was excellent. They provided us with precious support in the selection and choice of the most appropriate universities for our son: they advised and assisted in the preparation of the relevant applications helping to solve all the issues involved. This was a really valuable support for us, as we were not too familiar with the British University system. The relationship and trust they were able to build with both my son and us was really outstanding and the young College Connections experts that advised my son were all very experienced, professional and extremely dedicated. In addition College Connection has deep knowledge of the International Baccalaureate system and offered my son the opportunity to address his concerns helping him also when he was under high pressure before the IB final tests."
Anna Pazzi - Parent, Geneva
"I know I am writing to you after a long time but I remembered I had never given you feedback regarding my personal experience with Ella! She was super kind and comprehensive, very useful and prepared. She managed to help me and give me the correct information with the correct timing without putting stress on me (still obtaining results of course). I really enjoyed working with her and I would recommend it to everyone. (My mum agrees too!!)"
Maria Vittoria Venezia - Student, Milan
"I am pleased to say that Olimpia found the assistance that Frances provided to her in developing her choice of universities and courses very helpful. Frances' inputs for the drafting of Olimpia’s personal statement as well as Frances counselling for the preparation of Olimpia’s art book were also much appreciated. Following her university applications Olimpia had a good set of options of where to go to for her studies. Thanks again for your help."
Francesco Loredan - Investor
"Although I (sadly) only met Nils this past september, I can confidently say that I achieved the grade I was aiming for thanks to her help. It is the mixture of enthusiasm she puts in every lesson, her exceptional organizational skills and ability to explain topics that may seem confusing in a simplified and clear manner that make her teaching style the best one could ask for! And as a bonus, she is the nicest person and extremely dedicated to her job, which makes her stand out even more!! I truly think she is the best maths teacher I’ve ever met, and would highly highly recommend everyone needing some help in maths to follow her lessons!"
Pilar Mills Scio - Student, St. Stephen's School, Rome
"College Connections recently coached our daughter for her applications to English universities. As parents, we were impressed by the dedication [College Connections] put into helping our daughter organize her experiences, goals and ideas into a concise, coherent and impactful Personal Statement that was still a faithful reflection of her. We are glad to say that the effort was successful with 4 offers out of 5 applications (and the 5th one still pending). From this experience, we are happy recommending Max and College Connections to students applying to English universities and their parents."
