"Yal was a wonderful consultant to work with. She knows how to speak with kids and was able to organize all the intake information in a useful way. Just having someone to do some hand holding in this country is an important service, but Yal made it smooth and painless." - CF

"Thanks so much for your help and expertise. Our son is doing great and is happy in his new school. It seems like his teachers understand him and he has found people that he relates to and that appreciate him. The school definitely seems like the right fit and we would not have found it without your help." - Shira

Yal's process works. It's downright magical." - Ruthie

"She has a unique comprehensive approach that takes the time to get to know the student and the family and looks at the whole package to guide her search.

Both us, the parents and our son felt Yal totally understood what we were looking for in a school and her report was really thorough, well written and delivered in the time frame we were promised. Yal has been totally approachable & helpful at all times. We recommend her very highly!" - Michelle

"Before we met with her, we felt lost about our options for our son, not knowing the system or the different schools in our area that would cater to his unique needs. Yal held our hands through the process, and provided us with a carefully cultivated list of schools that would be not just adequate, but excellent choices to suit our son's needs." - Chavi

"We thought we would never find the right school for our child. We were lost in an overwhelming maze. Yal literally walked us out of the maze. She is impeccably professional, yet the whole experience was beautifully personal. The quest to find the right school felt as important to Yal as it did to us. With sensitivity, compassion and thoroughness, we felt safe, understood and hopeful. We are immeasurably grateful and are delighted with the results. Cannot recommend Yal highly enough." - Ilana

Just wonderful guidance. Completely recommend!" - Devorah

suggestions throughout the process...She found us a school that met both our requirements and we are both totally happy with!" - JW

"Yal was invaluable in helping us navigate the process of finding a high school for our son. There are countless options available and we didn’t know where to begin. Yal met with us for hours to first explain the system and then to get to know us and my son and to understand our concerns as well as our hopes. She was quick and efficient in getting back to us with information and answering all questions and concerns. All in all, I highly recommend having Yal consult with you and help you in the high school selection process." - Chaya

We were happy at every step of the process. Yal is professional and dedicated. Highly recommended!" - Elisheva

She listened to us and our daughter and really understood what she sought- ultimately providing options that were exactly what we were looking for, that we otherwise may not have known about. She helped to make a daunting task feel much more manageable providing valuable guidance and assistance when needed." - Nechama

"She's thorough, helpful, calm and totally not judgmental. I felt we had someone totally on our team who would go to tremendous efforts for us. She guided us through the process of contacting the schools as well as signing up for open days or getting interviews. She encouraged us to look at each option with an open mind. It made it so much easier contacting a school who already knew about us and moving forward from that point...It's been a pleasure and a relief!" - BC

"We were really at a point where we didn't know what to do for my son. An amazing kid with so many strengths and a touch of ADD. Yal really saved the day. She really and truly LISTENED to us, to understand what we were looking for, what my son was hoping for and what would be best for him. We are thrilled that he was accepted into a truly out of the box program that bezrat HaShem will suit him perfectly! It really ticks every single one of our boxes and my son is truly excited to start school!" - AR

"We turned to Yal for expert professional advice in the search for the right Ulpana for our daughter. As Olim, the world of boarding school was alien to us let alone navigating the different types of schools. Yal was great when learning about our requirements as parents and also engaging with our daughter too. She came up with a comprehensive list based on solid research and conversations with all the schools. Yal outlined all the pros and cons for each school aligned with our requirements. Our daughter got her first choice and Yal was responsive both during and post engagement with us. This was a much needed professional service which we highly recommend!" - Sara
