Here’s What Parent Say About Me and My Approach to Working with Your Teen

Dr. Gina Petonito has been assisting our high school senior with his college applications through the summer of 2021. We have been impressed not only with her expertise in helping him formulate his thought processes and put them in writing but also her invaluable guidance and knowledge about various institutions. This has helped him focus on what fits his future interests and channel his efforts towards what would be in line with his credentials and ultimate goals. We have had some experience with our oldest child who graduated from high school a few years ago and this time on, the process seems so much more organized and streamlined. This has certainly alleviated some degree of  anxiety and stress on our part as we know that he is in good hands with Dr.G’s guidance and help. We are looking forward to watching our son achieve his goals and hopefully find himself at an institution of his choice.

Here’s What Students Say About Me And My Approach to Writing

I want to thank you, Gina. You’ve inspired me. You’ve inspired me by being such a  kind  woman and such an energetic professional. You gave me strength and energy to stand up, to come back into the arena. Beyond continents, borders and languages you have been able to understand my need and with your words you’ve opened to me a new world. Continue to do what you’re doing the way you’re doing it: with empathy and ethics. Without any doubt, you’ll reach more than you would imaginine.

What I learned during my mentorship with Dr. Petonito will last me through college and my professional career. I understand now how important writing is in every subject, and how it can transform a boring paper into an engaging composition to showcase the work and logic you put into whatever project you are working on.

When I was in school, I was lucky to have the guidance and assistance from Gina. Writing was something that was stressful for me, but she helped me get through the stress, enjoy the process and want to do more. With the help I received from Gina, I was able to finish my Master’s Thesis and receive my Master’s Degree.

Professor Petonito’s instruction helped me identify questions where all I had seen before were standard answers passed down through textbook after textbook. As a college thesis supervisor, she helped me develop the critical capacity to develop my own questions and the skills to research my own answers. As a classroom teacher, she provided a safe and patient environment for all of us to learn how to express and respond to complex ideas. I drew on these skills throughout my post-graduate education and use them still as a professional analyst and an activist. Her instruction provided me with the confidence to express myself with clarity and precision.
