"My mentor provided a safe and supportive environment to help our son navigate the sometimes overwhelming journey from high school to college. Her ability to connect with these kids at an age where they are less inclined to talk with their teachers and parents allowed them to ask all the questions on their minds about their college applications. Helping them with their college essay writing was a huge plus. I'm sure that without my mentor's help, they would not have been as successful as they have been in the next chapter of their lives. Thanks!"

"My mentor is one of the most dedicated, hardworking, and passionate individuals I have met. The process she used to help me with my personal statements was tailor-made for my needs and interests. She invests a lot of energy and time into each student that she helps, which was definitely apparent in the time I spent with her. I’m very much thankful for all the guidance she had given during my college application journey, which played an integral part in getting me on the exciting academic path I am on today."

"Fray is an amazon tutor/teacher and is helping my daughter weekly on her studies. Originally, he helped her move her grade up in math, and now with everything going on with remote learning, he helps with absolutely anything she needs. My daughter has maintained high grades through all of this, and without Fray, I know this would not have been possible. I could not be happier with the support he provides and can not even imagine how many tears have not been shed due to my daughter knowing she has him."
-Piper G., Parent
"Michaela was supportive, kind, and helpful during my college application process. She worked with me to develop my own ideas, providing specific guidance with editing my writing, and more broad assistance with structuring and developing my thoughts. She helped me strengthen my own writing while ensuring that my voice remained at the forefront. She cares deeply about her students and is incredibly knowledgeable about the college application and essay writing process. I would definitely recommend her and her services!"

"Going through college research and applications is a daunting process, but with Michaela’s guidance, Nathan is seeing it through and is almost done. In particular, I’m really impressed in how Michaela was able to help Nathan discover himself as he worked on his college personal statements. I can’t say enough how much she has helped Nathan in:
- identifying attributes about college that are important
- researching colleges to narrow the application list
- researching majors, contacting the schools and professionals
- demonstrating interests in the schools he’s applying
- discovering himself, what he wants to do, as he worked on his college personal statements
- preparing for college interviews
I know that the time that Michaela invested in Nathan has so much more value than just college applications. Some of the skills that Nathan acquired from this process are applicable to other life skills."

“-Fray has shown great curiosity about all of the ins and outs of our school system. Fray’s constant reﬂection has revealed that mediocrity is not an option, and striving to be better and more effective is a core value for this wonderful educator. At Regis, Fray showed up to engage in learning every day; there were never excuses to not be present.. Fray clearly recognizes that this art of teaching is indeed a practice! On top of all of that, Fray’s kindness and empathetic nature have always been evident.”

"Excellent math tutor who really listens and focuses on my daughter's needs as well as helping her have a good attitude about math!"
-Piper G., Parent
"My mentor has been helping my 11 y.o. son with math for over a year. He is great with math, but additionally , he is great with kids. He treats them with respect. He never seems to get frustrated. He is very patient and kind. He takes problems my son found frustrating and finds a way to break things down and simplify them for him. He communicates with his teacher (at our request), to make sure he is always working on the things the teacher thinks he needs the most help with, and to prepare him for upcoming tests. His help has been invaluable. It’s also worth noting, he communicates very well, he is flexible, and is always reliable and on time. We feel very lucky to have found him and would strongly recommend him."

"We’ve used I Am Me Mentors for the past 3+ years for Nathan (student), and recently for Jonas (student) when SIP started. Between Nathan and Jonas, we’ve worked with Michaela, Rowen and Fray (all have their bio page on the website). They each have their own expertise and my kids respond extremely well to all of them. Please reach out to them if you’re looking for ideas in creating personalized summer program. One example that Nathan did 2 (or maybe 3?) summers ago — he worked with Michaela on his writing skills. Using the book Lord of the Flies, he practiced writing evidence, analysis and 5-paragraph essay. And this summer he’ll be working with her to prep for SAT writing test. Over time, we’ve seen his writing skills and confidence improved significantly. And we attribute this all to Michaela! We’re also looking to personalize Jonas’ summer program with Fray."

“Rowen is a wonderful and kind human, I highly enjoyed our career counseling session together. They gave me a lot of insight into myself, my work ethic and my needs that I didn’t even realize about myself. I would recommend Rowen to absolutely anyone!!! I had an absolutely wonderful experience with both Fray and Rowen. Both are wonderful, caring, and patient teachers! I would wholeheartedly recommend “I Am Me Mentors” to anyone and everyone!”
-Emily B., Student
“I used essay editing services for grad school applications from these amazing mentors the past few months, and they have helped make the process so much less intimidating!. . . I had the pleasure of working with Rowen for the first time and had an amazing time connecting with them, and very appreciated their thoughtful insight and point of view. All in all, very happy with my experience and completely recommend!”

"I need to take a minute to speak on Fray Patton and the amazing job he does! I was in desperate need of help with my resume and cover letter! I found him and his company "I am me mentors" online and sent an email! He understood my urgency and made an appointment right away! He took his time with me and was very sincere in everything he taught me as well as made every effort in getting me the lowest price by referring me to make a donation to their site. I'm very happy to say that the day after submitting my documents to a job I've been wanting for 2 months, I was hired. The company was highly impressed with my resume and cover letter that Fray so graciously helped me complete! I can't thank him enough and would recommend him and his company hands down!"
-Ashley K., Student
"Trust is the first word our family thinks of when we think of Fray. Our youngest child is on the spectrum. Austin had a teacher that traumatized him to the point he has struggled with learning for years. He had been unable to relax and trust another tutor or teacher. I really do not remember how I found Fray, but all I can say is he has changed our lives. We as parents saw that we could trust Fray with our very fragile child, the most important part is Austin very quickly came to trust Fray. With Fray’s knowledge and care Austin has become confident that he can reach his ultimate goal of becoming a teacher. He is driven to this goal because in his words “no child should be done like I was.” "
-Amanda H., Parent
"I used a gift card for Passion Development and some Graduate School counseling with Rowen and I'm so glad I did! Rowen was incredibly professional, and gave me options to explore my passions in ways I had never thought about. They sent me notes after the session since they gave me such an incredible wealth of knowledge, I wouldn't have been able to remember everything. I highly recommend them, and I hope to be able to continue services with them soon!"
