• Before going into Lorraine’s class, I had no idea about how I would write my personal statement.  After two short lessons, my ideas were organized and I felt confident writing about personal experiences. As the first person to attend college in my family, I did not know where to get help for college. But after attending Lorraine’s workshop, I know I have someone to help me. Lorraine doesn’t just help students with their personal essays, she also guides them in anything college or scholarship related. Her class is fantastic and I recommend it to every student on the island.

  • Lorraine helped me organize my ideas and write a personal statement that really reflected who I am as a person and not what I thought the colleges wanted to hear.

  • Lorraine at College Directions Hawaii made an intimidating mission into a successful and workable journey.  Her knowledge of all the ins and outs of getting a child to college were phenomenal.  Her enthusiasm, commitment and constant communication with me and my daughter during the entire process was outstanding.  I could not ask for a better experience.  For all the parents out there that have children getting ready to go to college, you need to work with Lorraine right away.  She is awesome and passionate about helping parents with all aspects of the college application process.  You will not regret it.

  • I’m so impressed with the information and assistance my son received during the College Directions’ Essay Writing Class. My son came away from it enthusiastic about (instead of dreading) writing his college application essay. He felt that the one-on-one time spent with instructor Lorraine Gershun gave them clarity and helped them to organize their thoughts.

  • Services at College Directions Hawaii have helped me better enjoy the college process instead of dread it.

  • Lorraine guided me to submit applications  and write essays that truly reflect the best version of myself. Applying to college would have been a lot more stressful without her help. I couldn't be more excited for college!
