Deeply grateful to work with Juan-Camilo Tamayo, Ana Barr and Christian Safie. It was more like a family experience than a professional experience.
As parents, feeling confident that our most precious beings are wisely accompanied, makes us feel immensely fortunate. It was a privilege to share this journey with you…The feeling is that our daughter was not only oriented in her professional vocation, but was also guided comprehensively with her intellectual abilities, talent, preferences, social and family environment and how to be completed as such.
The process involved us all in one way or another that we feel you are like family now. We hope that soon you can help us in the same context with our other children and even us, as parents.

I want to thank Juank and the JCT4Education team for helping my parents and me through the application process. When we started working, I knew exactly where I didn’t want to study as well as a couple of schools that I was considering, but if it wasn’t for Juank, I don’t think I would be able to say that I got into some amazing schools that I would not have considered in the first place.
Juank understood that I didn’t want to go to some big-name school like a lot of people were expecting me to, but that I also didn’t want to end up in a small school in the middle of nowhere, and if it wasn’t for his support and his contacts throughout the university world, I probably would not be saying happily that I committed to an amazing school.
He even gave me an amazing opportunity to work alongside his team during the summer, and because of that, I was able to discover what he and his team does behind the scenes. Juank and his team do everything in their power to strengthen each of their “client’s” (although I know Juank does not like it when the students he works with are called clients, they are students) applications and ensure that they find the school that is right for them.
From the bottom of my heart, I thank Juank and his team for everything they have done for me, and I have greatly enjoyed working with them as a “client” and fellow employee and hope that we continue the friendship that has come from this.

We have worked with Juan Camilo Tamayo and his JCT4Education team, Anna Barr, Christian Safie, in the application process to the university of our third child. We were impressed with the personal involvement they had, in which they made us feel, at all times, that the process of our son was their priority. Excellent professionals, detail-oriented, involved, have demonstrated their great capacity and knowledge in their area of work. They have been everything one expected, and more.
It is easier to criticize than to give compliments, in your case it is the other way around.

To the entire JCT4education team, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you! Thank you for your effort, dedication, and support during all these years. You gave us much more than we ever expected to receive, you made us feel like family. The way you cared for us was priceless, the constant words of encouragement, the wisdom you shared with us, the light you brought to us in moments of uncertainty, your support and the unconditional love for Nicole was amazing. For us, the greatest blessing was to see the connection that you created with Nicole. To know that Nicole was not just another “client” but a person that you cared about was comforting. There are no words to thank you enough or to express our gratitude.
Hugs and kisses!!

We are very grateful that Alberto had the opportunity to work with Juank, Ana María , and the whole team. Their commitment to help being successful during his admission process was above and beyond.
One of the thins we were most impressed and valued more was the great connection and empathy they had with Alberto. They cared for him. They were patient and supportive but firm at the same time. They empowered him , filled him with motivation, and gave him more confidence that helped him do his best.
We , as parents, as well as Alberto, Felt less stressed because of how the process was managed. This was an incredible experience.

Juan Camilo and his team helped me achieve my dreams and made me a better student. I really would not be where I am right now without them.

We met Juan Camilo several years ago after my twelve-year-old son returned from my husband’s dream summer camp, all about outdoors and sports, where he was supposed to have fun, but this just did not happen. We then sought for help and found Juan Camilo through a friend’s referral. After this and with his help my son started a discovery and growth period regarding his true passion. It was really amazing when my husband picked him up from one of his technology summer camps and the teacher said to him: I am impressed with your child, he is only 13 years old, but he already knows what he wants in life. My husband next question was, why do you say that? And he answered, well, he was asked three simple questions and he answered them without hesitation: 1. What do you like to do? Draw, but I am not good enough. 2. What do you consider yourself good at: Computers. 3. What do you want to do when you grow up? Draw through a computer. So, there he was, a 13-year-old, very clear on what he was passionate about: drawing and computers.
Well, and to make a long story short, today my son is following his passion, he is studying Interactive Media and Game Design at the college he wanted. Thanks to Juan Camilo’s guidance and the support from JCT4education team, here I want to do a special mention to Carolina.
Juan Camilo is not only a professional in helping discover the passion in each student, but he has a special gift, something you cannot learn in college, one can truly tell he loves what he does, it almost seems like this is not a job for him, he puts his heart in his work, worrying about the students almost as if they were his own children, empowering them to be happy.
I truly believe that the only way to really enjoy life is to discover what you are most passionate about and get to live your passion as soon as possible. When we love what we do, even when unfortunate circumstances arrive, we confront these situations in a positive manner as part of the journey we need to live to continue doing what we most love: living our passion.
Don’t we all want our kids to be happy?
Do not hesitate and seek for Juan Camilo’s advice.
