Cana provides valuable advice on college selection which helps my daughter to develop an appropriate college list and find a best fit college. We have a better understanding of the U.S. college admission processes. Cana also provides good guidance in selecting essay topics and approaches which allow Esther to articulate who she is and what matters to her in a genuine and impressive way.

CANA's consultant team consists of graduates and students from Oxbridge, I think that the team is very reliable, trustworthy and supportive. The consultants organised the tutorial timetable nicely, helping me to avoid procrastination and make me feel well prepared before the interview. Apart from technical support, CANA consultants also gave me invaluable encouragement during the application process.

Mingyu Liu Successful applicant to Oxford, 44/45 in IBDP

I knew I was in safe hands after my very first lesson with my consultant. The reading material provided much inspiration for my personal statement, and I was also pushed to navigate through difficult legal scenarios. Never did I imagine that I could feel so passionately about a subject, and would therefore like to thank “Cana” very, very much.

A.S. Successful applicant to Law at Cambridge

The tutor, being a graduate of Law from Cambridge, is very familiar with both legal concepts and the Oxbridge interview style. He is also one of the most articulate, critical and intelligent people I have ever met. During the sessions, he pushed and challenged me with the toughest and most difficult interview scenarios and questions. In many cases, I didn't know how to answer them, but he taught me that the most important focus was the reasoning process, not the answer itself. The training proved to be extremely applicable during my real interview.

Brian Successful applicant to Law at Oxford

The IB was tough and grueling program, but I credit my peers, teachers and the wonderful tutors at Cana for providing a challenging and fulfilling environment for me to learn. Cana tutors are not only knowledgeable in their fields but also approachable; willing and able to answer any questions I had on hand. Overall, I'm really happy with completing the IB and I can definitely say that the feeling of accomplishment after receiving my score made all the hard work worth it.

Eunice Canadian International School, 45/45 in IBDP

CANA gave me direction in my application process. They provided many resources that helped me understand the complex US admissions process and gave me insight into how university admissions officers would see my application.

L.C. Successful applicant to Yale

Cana’s services have helped me realize my dream of getting into medical school. The tutors have given me confidence and courage to fulfill my own potential in a time of uncertainty and nervousness. They have given me knowledge that extends beyond my academic career, I have also gained friendships through Cana’s overwhelming hospitality.
