六年前，我自高申过程中结识Nancy。我对她和她的团队第一印象是耐心和负责。跟同龄人相比，我开始申请的时间已经非常晚了，但是Nancy仍然为我找到了合适的学校。在前往位于宾西法尼亚州匹兹堡温彻斯特瑟斯顿学校 之前， Nancy 在校园面试方面给我提供极大帮助。我成为温彻斯特瑟斯顿学校有史以来第一批录取的中国学生中的一员。感谢Nancy和她的团队，因为高中阶段的生活对于我来讲非常宝贵。我的老师和同学思想非常开放，包容性很强，他们教会我的东西远多于书本上的知识。没有Nancy的帮助，我不可能有这样的经历。如果没有选择适合的美国高中，我也没有机会去纽约大学继续追逐我在艺术史方面的激情。
I met Nancy during my high school application process six years ago, and my first impression of her and her team was nothing but patient and responsible. I started my application considerably late compared to my peers, but Nancy still managed to find the right school for me. Before going to Winchester Thurston School, located in Pittsburgh, PA, Nancy helped me greatly when interviewing with the WT admission office. I was one of the first Chinese international students who were accepted to WT; therefore, I'm very thankful to Nancy and her team because my high school years have been such a precious experience. My peers and teachers were liberal minded and accepting to the utmost degree, and they taught me so much more than just the academics. I couldn't have had such an experience without Nancy's help, and I couldn't have had the opportunity to pursue my passion in art history at NYU without going to the right high school.
Nancy's team did a great job with guiding me through the application process. What impressed me the most was how crafted for each individual their service was, and how much they focused on personal growth. Nancy met me and really got to know me as a person before the application process. With her rich knowledge of boarding schools and years of experience, Nancy helped me finalize my list of schools based on my interest, strengths, weaknesses, and personality. During each meeting for interview, her colleagues not only introduced me the interview process, but also challenged me to reflect upon my life and think about who I really was. I enjoyed every meeting and really thought of it as an opportunity of discovering myself, rather than a mere preparation for interviews and essays. Nancy and her colleagues' influence on me were way more than acceptance letters. I very much appreciate their belief and efforts in fostering students' personal growth along the application process, which far exceeds what many of their peer consultation companies do.
There were two things that I benefited most from working with NancyFriends. One is that Nancy and her team had always been extremely supportive along the road. Whenever I got frustrated over a failed essay draft or a mediocre standardized test score, they were always there to encourage me to persevere in my efforts and to pin-point what I should do for the next step. The other thing is that NancyFriends successfully found the most suitable school for me. When they were helping me choose schools to apply for in the first place, they said that Episcopal would be the perfect match. Now looking back at it, I wholeheartedly love my school, and I don't regret a single bit of my decision.
During the US boarding school application process, NancyFriends was my biggest support. As my consultant, Nancy walked me through the complicated process and guided me along the way. I still remember the first time when I stepped into her office, unsure of my ambition. Nancy and her colleague didn’t attempt to stuff me with expectations; instead they patiently asked me questions, helped me gain a better understanding of myself and explore my true identity. Throughout the process, they persisted excellence with this professional attitude. Even when I was waitlisted by all of my dream schools, Nancy and her friends didn’t give up. Nancy herself flew across the Pacific merely for the slight chance of admission. Her faithfulness rekindled my belief when I was lost. As a result, her cheerfulness enlightened me and kept me motivated before Concord’s miracle dawned on me. I believed NancyFriends is more than a simple consulting organization. It is both my mentor and my friend, who not only promoted my ambitions, but also offered me a chance of rediscovering myself. I am glad to have NancyFriends along my side, and I will continue to be their dearest friend.
NancyFriends is the best consul I have ever seen. All the teachers are very responsible and regard every of their students as a friend. The main difference between NancyFriends and other consuls is NancyFriends sees mentally growth for the young is always more important than education. They always talk with students like friends, and they always console students when the youth meet problems during their growth and provide nice advice to the adolescents. As a student, I can feel their enthusiasm from their attitude towards students and their work. I can also feel what they did for student can truly contribute to students' future life. NancyFriends is more like a life guide to students rather than a consul team! They always consider the benefits of students than theirs.
我选择NF作为我的教育顾问是因为他们专业、自信、善于启发学生。 我第一次与NF进行的咨询就让我意识到根据排名选择学校是不成熟的。NF在我的申请过程中给予了我极大的自信，他们让我相信我所有的付出都会有所收获。 在NF的帮助下，我各方面都有很大程度的提升，这个意义远超过申请本身。面试辅导非常有趣，也非常有启发性。Wayne 在面试辅导方面经验丰富。他介绍了新的理念给我，比如说“存在主义”。同时，他鼓励我多读书，像阿尔贝*加缪的《局外人》这样有思想深度的书。 我喜欢来自爱尔兰的顾问Felix ，因为我们都喜欢街舞，他向我推荐了说唱歌手KRS-one, 跟我探讨说唱歌曲中的元素。我们也谈论社会问题，例如ISIS。我觉得我对社会问题的理解更加深入了，跟Felix谈话是非常棒的经历。 NF全程协助我的申请，从选校，找回VPN密码登陆学校网站到修改文书。 我的文书被反复修改，但是每次他们都会询问我的意见，然后让我逐字审阅最终版本。我觉得NF的工作风格一直很棒，他们致力于给出具体的意见而非笼统性的建议。 我觉得加入NF后，我认识了很多有趣的人并且参与了很多活动。去年我参加了美高音乐会，今年我参加了重庆的支教志愿服务活动。我非常感谢NF组织这些活动，它们给了我宝贵的机会让我认识了很多优秀学生。 感恩NF为我做的一切，因为我真心觉得跟顾问打交道的过程让我收获良多。他们是最棒的顾问！
I chose NancyFriends (NF) as my consultancy because of its professionalism, confidence and enlightenment. My first consultation with NF made me aware that choosing schools according to rankings was immature. NF also instilled the confidence in my application and made me believe all my efforts would finally pay off. NancyFriends helped me improve myself far beyond the application. The preparations for interviews were interesting and enlightening. Wayne has rich experience in interview preparation. He introduced new thoughts to me such as existentialism, and encouraged me to read books like The Stranger by Albert Camus. I like Felix, the consultant from Ireland, because we both liked hip-hop and he recommended the rapper KRS-one to me, and talked about the essence in those rap songs. We also discussed social issues like the ISIS. I feel my understandings of social issues were greatly enhanced and I considered that as a great experience. NancyFriends also offered help ranging from choosing schools, restoring a VPN to access school website to revising essays. My essay was corrected again and again, but each time they asked for my opinion, and let me revise the last version word by word. I feel that NancyFriends’ working style is quite good all the time and they spent their efforts in providing me specific suggestions rather than general advice. Finally I believe by joining NancyFriends, I met a lot of interesting people and participated in many different activities. From the Musical last year to the volunteering teaching in Chongqing this year, I would like to thank NancyFriends for all of these activities because they gave me opportunities to meet numerous brilliant young students. I’m thankful for everything NancyFriends has done for me, because I felt I really have accomplished a lot of things with my consultants. They are good consultants.
“南希伙伴”给我印象最深的是他们能够帮助Tony认识真正的自我。Wayne 花了几个月的时间给Tony进行启发式辅导，帮助他发掘自我的激情所在和最真实的个性。“南希伙伴” 与我们分享了这样的理念：美高申请的过程是学生逐渐认识真我的过程，之后才去选择最匹配的学校。我们觉得Nancy悉心择校、辅助申请，Wayne在很多方面给予Tony的指导，他们的努力足以证明我们共同的价值理念，即成长比申请更重要。美高申请使Tony变得更自信、自我认知程度更高。“南希伙伴”团队中的其它成员同样训练有素，他们在申请全程中协助沟通、递交材料。 他们对于我们达成申请目标起到了至关重要的作用。总之，“南希伙伴”的全体成员都非常热情、友好，会对有意申请美高的家庭提供极大帮助！
The most impressive feature of Nancyfriends is its ability to help Tony to find his true self. Wayne spent several months talking to Tony, helping him determine his passions and discover his personality. NancyFriends shared with us the belief that high school application is a process in which a student gradually realizes his true self and then selects the most befitting school. We believe that Nancy's efforts in deliberating the schools for application and organizing the various parts of this process as well as Wayne's guidance in his many discourses with Tony are evident of our mutual emphasis on growth rather than simply being accepted. Tony became more confident and self- conscious as a result of the application process. The other members of Nancyfriends are also well-trained and helped us in areas such as communication and editing throughout application. They were also crucial in helping us achieve our goals. Finally, the entire staffs of Nancyfriends are enthusiastic and friendly from the very start, and they would be a great help to anyone seeking to apply to high school in the United States!
Whenever I recall the application process my family has got through, I can still feel the heavy pressure that educational consultants had to bear. Nancy and Wayne offered us sensible advice at crucial stages. Compared to parents, they are indeed professional and experienced. Therefore, I believe if you give your consultants trust and understanding to set their passion aflame, they will strive for perfection. NancyFriends is never a high-sounding consultancy. Instead, their fame spreads from mouth to mouth. I am not saying any fancy words to express my gratitude, and I even avoid mentioning their names. However, my family feel really, really grateful from the bottom of our heats. Thanks to each working staff at NancyFriends, my daughter was admitted to her dream high school. More importantly, the whole application process has witnessed a girl’s growth. As a mom, I am an advocate of the concept, “Far beyond application!” I can feel my own growth for I learned how to become a better mom. To enter an American high school is the destination of application, but it is also the beginning of the children’s new life. Do not give children too much pressure. You need to believe that God has made perfect arrangements for children. Trust your children, trust your educational consultants, cooperate with them well and wish for good luck!
Your students are indeed fortune to have you and your team behind! The time, care and energy you devote to your clients is so admirable.
Thank you for calling and sharing the helpful information before March 10th. We are glad to have a strong partnership with your organization!
Your timing is very good. We are now reviewing our applicant pool. Your group was very strong again this year. We like both the quality of your applicants and the interesting parts of China many of them are from. I should also mention that our administrative staff are impressed by the work you do to send us good and timely application parts. They enjoy working with your team.
Please be sure to give the team from Nancy & Friends, especially, Gloria, my best. Their team worked really hard to stay in communication with me in support of your application.
I appreciate how well you know each family you are working with. It is so helpful in communicating with them and with you, too!
Nancy, congratulations on your baby boy! How exciting! Thank you so much for recommending Chatham Hall to your families, this year, and a huge thank you to both of you as well as Vivian and Victor for your tireless work.
Peter and I appreciate all of your help while we were in Beijing! We feel very lucky to have your support!
Thank you for working so well with us on behalf of your students. You have earned an honored place on our short list of most highly trusted consultants!
I agree with NancyFriends’s concept of “Growth is more important than application” because growth means “going far.” Studying abroad also means “going far,” and so does life.
Nancy的微笑很迷人，让我想起初中时对我很好的一位美女英语老师。 Nancy的语速柔和，认真而耐心，在她第一次来到我们在三里屯的店里的时候，就给我留下了深刻的印象。她就坐在我身后的沙发上，等我把设计稿完全弄好，现场校对，现场修改，现场确认。其实我喜欢这样的客户，不拖泥带水，不盛气凌人，耐心，高效。 后来的合作中，她干脆说，孙先生，我相信您的意见，您是专家，您觉得OK我这里没问题。这让我感受到Nancy内心里一种自信和对他人的信任。 我的女儿慢慢长大，一天，我忽然意识到，需要为她规划未来的求学路径，于是我一下想到了Nancy，但同时，让我感到意外的是，从我们见面开始，Nancy从没有在我面前推销过她的美高咨询业务。 当我慢慢了解美高，了解Nancy，了解Nancy和她的志同道合的伙伴们，我知道，信任来自点滴，每一件小事的耐心和认真，让一个看似不可触碰的未来，在高效和微笑中变为现实。 Nancy，my friends
Nancy’s charming smile always reminds me of a beautiful English teacher who was so nice to me when I was in middle school. Nancy speaks softly, earnestly and patiently. When she came to my store in Sanlitun for the first time, I was immediately impressed by her. She just sat in the sofa behind me, waiting for me to prepare the design draft. She then reviewed my design, offered suggestions and then even confirmed my design on the spot. I like this kind of client: straightforward, easygoing and efficient. During our later cooperation, she just said to me, “Mr. Sun, I believe you because you are expert. As long as you find it ok, I think it is ok.” What she said showed her confidence in herself and trust in others. When my daughter grew up, it suddenly occurred to me one day that she needs a plan for future studies. I thought of Nancy but, to my surprise, actually she had never “sold” her consulting business to me. As I know more about American high schools, more about Nancy and her colleagues who harbor the same mission, I realize that trust arises from patience and effort in every past event and that an intangible future is becoming realistic with her efficiency and smile. Nancy，my friends
NancyFriends are best friends of MPS (Mucopolysaccharidosis ) kids. In the summer of 2017, three volunteers from NancyFriends did a huge amount of work for an American doctor who treated MPS kids free of charge. They spent three days doing the translation and helping the kids with patience. What they did is well remembered by kids’ families with gratitude and love.
Every person, business partner, parent, or student, who knows NancyFriends, can share a similar feeling with me: they are sincere and warm-hearted, just like the afternoon sunshine in their office, radiating from every member of NancyFriends. It is not easy to apply for American schools, and if you would like a reliable guide, drop in at NancyFriends.
如果说鼎泰是美化形象的，Nancy Friends似乎在做的是美化人生的工作。 定制的精髓在于沟通，NF的主要工作就也是沟通。 我一直觉得NF的孩子们都是由内而外充满阳光的，和这些孩子们的沟通过程充满了愉快和期待，我们比期待一件完美的西装还要更期待这些孩子们美好的未来。 非常认可NF常常提到的一句话，“成长比申请重要！” 我想只有懂得这句话的家长，才能培养出可以顺利通过申请的孩子……
Trebonair helps enhance one’s image, and NancyFriends helps enhance one’s life. Tailored-making is based on communication. So does NF’s work. I always can feel the sunshine of teenagers from NF, and I always enjoy a wonderful chat with them. We look forward to a perfect suit for them, even more their bright future. I quite agree with NF’s mission, “Growth is more important than application.” I think only parents who can understand this is able to make their kid into a successful candidate.
五年前，我刚从美本美研的留学圈涉足美高留学领域，NancyFriends的大名早已是如雷贯耳，令我感到肃然起敬。百闻不如一见，第一次见到Nancy时我正给SSAT冲刺班的学生们上课，课间休息时听到同学们交头接耳说Nancy来了，我才意识到这就是传说中的Nancy，专业，简洁却不简单，这是我对Nancy的第一印象。后来发现班上很多学生都选择NancyFriends作为申请中介。第二年的三月，我那些NF的学生们纷纷拿到了dream school offer的时候，才是真正见识到了NF的厉害。 她们非常注重品味，可能有人会觉得这没什么，但我却认为这一点非常重要。她们的logo，办公室风格，宣传册设计，文案，微信公众号内容，官方网站，公开活动，每一处都渗透着一个字，美。不是那种甜到发腻的庸俗之美，而是内在优质流露出来的美，让人觉着舒服，放心。美在她们的心中，于是有了一双发现美的眼睛，帮助学生们去挖掘潜藏在他们自己身上的美，让这些美发光，照亮这个世界。 转眼间，我与NF的合作已走过五个春秋，共同见证了许许多多孩子们的成长，看着孩子们从幼稚到成熟，从中国走向世界。这五年间我们逐渐形成了某种默契，心照不宣同时彼此信任。 NancyFriends这名字起得好，Nancy团队每一个人彼此都是朋友，她们也会成为你的朋友。请信赖NF这个朋友！
When I shifted my business from American university application to high school application five years ago, NancyFriends was already well-known and admirable. The first time I met Nancy was when I was giving a SSAT lesson and suddenly found some students whispering “Nancy is here.” It was then that I realized the legendary Nancy came. My first impression of her was professional, concise but not simple. Later on, I found many students in my class chose Nancy as their educational consultant. In March of the following year, I was even more impressed when I found all those students won great offers. NancyFriends pays much attention to style. Though someone may think it is no big deal, I think it really matters. Their logo, office décor, bulletin design, publicity writing, WeChat posts, official website and their activities all demonstrate one word: beauty, which is not too sweet to be vulgar, but so inherited and elegant. Their beauty bestows them a sharp eye to spot students’ strengths and helps students to tap their potential and even shine the whole world. It has been five years since I began cooperation with NancyFriends and I witnessed so many students progressing into maturity and into the outside world. In these five years, we established a tacit understanding and trusted each other without any hesitation. NancyFriends is a good name since members in NancyFriends are friends and they will befriend you. Please trust NancyFriends.
问渠哪得清如许，为有源头活水来。阅读点亮人生。NancyFriends 一直倡导有针对性的阅读，她们在追求完美的申请的同时，更期待为大家打开一个精彩且有无限可能的人生。我们愿和NancyFriends 一起，做大家成功路上忠实的伙伴！

NancyFriends is involved in students’ exploration and excursion, and every one of them is a story of bringing forth a new soul. Efforts and challenges behind every choice urge them to look ahead toward the human kind. Quizlet radiates more than academic light because we are lucky to know so many exceptional students, whereas NancyFriends enlightens others because they themselves are a shining light.

Whenever I enter NancyFriends’office, I immediately feel at ease with their cozy décor. Later on, I find NancyFriends keeps a low profile but works diligently. Every member of NancyFriends are enthusiastic about education and think about everything for students. Furthermore, we are moved by NancyFriends’ideal to pursue dreams with teenagers. In our cooperation, we echo with NancyFriends’ mission “growth is more important than application.” In addition to consultancy, NancyFriends leads students to take part in various extracurricular activities such as charity program. Meanwhile, they are supportive of students’ creative artwork and sponsor them to make imagination into reality. They keep improving their service and activities, and offer on-stage chances for students. NancyFriends is not only an educational consultancy firm but also a partner to accompany teenager along their way of youth.
