We love helping families achieve their dreams and are honored to be a part of their learning journey. See what some Principia Prep clients have to say about us.
Our daughter worked with George on test prep and with Ed on the application process. Their services were invaluable and well worth the price. George was able to focus and structure the test preparation process and the results were outstanding. Ed helped our daughter understand what specific schools were looking for in an applicant and how to prepare her application in the most favourable light. In the end our daughter was accepted early decision to her first choice. There is no secret that will guarantee admission to any school but being completely prepared and understanding the process provides a strategic advantage. George and Ed make this possible.

Upon a recommendation from a fellow teacher, I contacted Ed Zamora, who made this process not only easy for all of us, but extremely successful as well. From the first consultation, my fears and anxiety were alleviated. With his vast experience in college recruiting, Ed is extremely knowledgeable with the entire process. While others were still struggling to get their applications done, Ed made sure that our son was always a step ahead of every deadline. The encouragement and guidance that Ed gave him while writing his all-important application essays yielded highly successful results. Ed guided him every step of the way during the on-line application process to ensure that everything was done properly and filed on time.
The SAT and ACT tutor that Ed recommended to us through Principia Prep was so outstanding that we hired him to do the same for our daughter who is applying to college next year. I can’t say enough about how Ed and his team made this process (one that I was dreading) so easy and so successful. It was such a great experience that he will be doing it again for my daughter this year. Based on his knowledge, experience, flexibility, and results, I HIGHLY recommend his services. As for my son who will be going to UConn, GO HUSKIES! Don’t wait…call Ed today.

With all the anxiety associated with the college process my son and I were extremely fortunate to be able to receive the services of Ed Zamora. He came highly recommended and understandably so. He is extremely knowledgeable of all that is involved in searching for colleges and completing all forms related to admissions and financial aid. Ed came to know my son’s interests and desires and would recommend colleges that would be suitable for him based on this information.
Ed Zamora was extremely patient and thorough. He spent many hours reviewing my son’s college essays. He provided encouragement, suggestions and ongoing revisions throughout the entire writing process. In addition he dedicated much time to filling out all college applications and financial aid forms (FAFSA) in a timely fashion.
Ed Zamora took away much of the stress, anxiety and uncertainty involved in the preparation of my son’s future college experience. I can’t even imagine what it would have been like without his expertise and help. Ed Zamora certainly exceeded all our expectations and we will be forever grateful for all that he has done to help make this most difficult journey an easier one.

Four years ago, my family and I were experiencing quite a bit of hardship. My husband had just been diagnosed with lymphoma and my son was about to embark on his journey through college. Before he could do so, we had to complete the application process, which most parents will agree, is a tremendous feat all in itself. Between my full-time job, my husband in chemotherapy, and my son beginning a new chapter to kick off his collegiate career, our family was spread thin.
That is until we met Ed Zamora and Principia Prep who were instrumental in supporting us through this difficult time. We were well advised in college admissions and prepared for all the crucial elements that would ensure my son’s success. For the past three years, my son has been attending Drexel University and continues to flourish each and every year! We are so thankful for all the advice and support we have, and continue to, receive from Ed and Principia Prep. We really couldn’t have done it all without them.

During our initial meeting with Ed, he was able to mapped out a plan and timeframe for Michael to complete his college visits, essays and applications. His knowledge of the schools, acceptance criteria and financial aid availability were helpful when it came time to apply to schools that Michael liked. In preparing for Senior Year, Michael had a short period of time to meet with George Iannacone from Principia Prep to improve his ACT scores enough to meet his chosen schools requirements. Ed assisted Michael in completing his college applications online and guided us through all the financial aid applications needed. Ed and George also assisted our daughter, Emily. We continue to work with Ed every year when financial aid applications need to be completed. Both of our children are thriving at their “reach schools” thanks to the help from Ed, George and Principia Prep!
