Essay guidance

  • Based on Shang NancyFriends' service team's nearly ten years of guidance experience in applying to prestigious schools, develop precise school application strategies based on individual strengths, and provide guidance on key aspects such as essay writing. We comprehensively oversee the application process.

    Using internal data from Shang NancyFriends and taking into account the student's submitted documents and previous coaching sessions, we lead students in conducting research on schools and majors, and develop a tailored school and major application strategy. Through consultation with the family, we ultimately create a satisfactory school selection list.

  • By understanding the student's interests, identifying their strengths and weaknesses, and collaborating with the family, we plan activities that enhance highlight their abilities. These activities may include English learning, scientific research, humanities and arts, sports, community service, innovative design, international competitions, lifestyle aesthetics, and various summer camps.

    Shang NancyFriends' consultants provide guidance and arrange mock interview training with the applying students. Through one-on-one coaching, in class demonstrations, and etiquette training, we help students understand social etiquette and increase their cultural awareness in Western societies. We provide repeated training to enhance students' interview skills and communication abilities, enabling them to perform better during admission interviews.

  • Through heuristic guidance, we provide essay writing guidance, including editing, polishing, and translation services based on the essay requirements of the target schools. We offer strategies and insights to deeply explore and incorporate students' personal experiences into their essays.

    Early contact with target schools is encouraged. If a student requires the accompaniment for a summer visit to the United States an "Accompanied Visit and Interview Service Agreement" signed will be signed by both parties.

  • Assistance can be provided to families making travel arrangements to visit schools, such as information on flights, hotels and car rentals. Throughout the application process, we communicate with schools to understand their admission requirements and the latest application updates, maintaining an ongoing dialogue.

    Upon successful admission, we provide students with explanations of enrollment contracts, guidance on course selection, and other relevant information.

Service Features

Shang NancyFriends adheres to the philosophy of fair access to the best educational resources for all students.

"One Team" ensures that every family can have continuous and efficient contact with our experienced consultants. It guarantees that each student receives personalized application plans directly from our partner team. Our partner team along with the Chinese and foreign coaching team members, based on our ten years of experience, have designed a comprehensive "heuristic coaching" outline and are fully involved in the coaching process. The team members leverage their extensive network resources in top-tier schools to provide strong support and guidance to students, ensuring they achieve their desired admissions outcomes.

Partner Advisor System
Students are assigned partner advisors who possess various credentials such as IECA certified members, board members of prestigious high schools, graduate mentors, and former chairs of alumni admissions. They have also graduated from Ivy League schools and top liberal arts colleges, and have successfully guided their own children to graduate from Harvard University. Partner advisors personally oversee and make decisions on important aspects like drafting student highlight reports, school selection, and facilitating admissions. The One Team model is integrated throughout the entire application process, including brainstorming sessions for essays, pre-submission application reviews, and key moments when educational consultants recommend students to universities. Partner advisors are responsible for the initial counseling sessions, allowing for deeper communication and understanding of students, as well as making precise judgments and plans for long-term planning services. After the initial session, partner provide a counseling report summarizing the initial session.

Heuristic Education Coaching
(One on one + Group)
Shang NancyFriends have a scientifically sound and comprehensive tutoring system. The college counseling team consists of multiple mentors who collaborate to uncover students' strengths, and provide training within a systematic approach. Simultaneously, they plan and supervise the execution of projects to enhance students' backgrounds. Moreover, they work together to strengthen their academic abilities, and introduce extracurricular activities and projects. We complement it with Shang NancyFriends standardized test preparation courses, achieving synchronized progress in academics, activities, and standardized tests. This approach effectively stimulates students' intrinsic motivation for learning and unlocks their potential for growth, allowing us to witness every step of their developmental journey. When selecting heuristic counseling advisors, we always focus on the key principles of "global citizenship, role models, and interdisciplinary expertise." These advisors possess proficiency in multiple languages, have multicultural backgrounds, and come from renowned educational institutions. They are Americans who understand Chinese culture and Chinese individuals. These mentors will also become the role models our high school and undergraduate students to aspire to become in the future.
Progress Consultants + Parent Consultants
Two Way Communication Model
A good parent-child relationship and a collaborative home-school interaction model are important aspects that contribute to successful admissions. Progress consultants provide detailed explanations of the application progress and procedural details, ensuring that parents and students are constantly informed. Parent consultants take the lead in fostering unity between home and school and maintain close communication with the family. During the period of adolescent rebellion, improving the parent-child relationship, identifying and resolving issues in advance, and promoting the student's physical and mental well-being lay a solid foundation for a successful application.

Mock Admissions Committee
To closely simulate the evaluation process and to assess each applicant against the rigorous standards of the evaluation committee, SNF has integrated a team of experienced members, including managing partners, partners, senior education consultants from the United States, and advisors specializing in heuristic educational guidance. They form the "Mock Admissions Committee" to comprehensively evaluate the applicants' overall strengths, interview skills, and the quality of their essays, providing an assessment that closely resembles real-world scenarios.
Athletic Advisory Council
In order to assist our families in planning their children's athletic talents in advance, SNF has formed a team of senior coach consultants, consisting of current and former coaches from elite high schools. This team covers planning for all sports programs in the fall, winter, and spring seasons of elite high schools. On one hand, they provide early-stage planning for students, and on the other hand, they offer better resources for students with athletic talents.

US Center: A harbor for Students
The US Center is located in Wallingford, Connecticut, known as the "backyard of Yale." It is only a 23-minute walk from the prestigious Choate Rosemary Hall, and 11.5 miles from Yale University. The establishment of the center aims to provide better services to student families in the United States and efficiently connect with American schools and various educational resources. In case of emergencies for families in the United States, we can promptly provide on-ground assistance without any time difference.
Shang NancyFriends Database
In order to provide the best college planning services and experience to every family at SNF, we have been investing heavily in our database and information technology developmen. Over the past 10 years, we have accumulated a vast amount of college admissions case data, allowing us to uncover underlying patterns and insights into subtle changes and future trends in applicants. We aim to match each student with the most ideal and fitting schools.
