"I think I cannot even describe how phenomenal Lizzie was... She had an amazing contact with my daughter, she was very supportive and made my daughter feel confident. My daughter was on fire with Lizzie. I believe she gave her very useful tips and covered a broad range of useful topics which helped me prepare my daughter better in this mad rush before the school interview. Very recommended!"
