    Hi Lisa,
    My friend Kristy Sands gave me your contact info and highly recommended you for SAT tutoring. I have a daughter who is a junior as Cherry Creek High School and would love to learn more about SAT tutoring from you. We would be interested in getting started later this fall with tutoring ( perhaps 2x/month). I’m not sure the college counseling will also fit into our budget, but would love to hear more about those services that you offer. Thanks for getting back to me.
