When it comes to applying to college, your child may know exactly what he or she wants—or not a clue. "I don't know" or "There's only one school for me" may be familiar tunes.
Applying to college is not what it once was. But neither does it have to be the overwhelming process many parents and students perceive it to be.
Set aside your worries. The much-feared battle of wills between parent and teen does not have to be part of the process. Nor do slick packaging or puffery on applications. As a trained, credentialed and experienced educational consultant, I help you and your student navigate each step of planning his or her academic future. I serve as the bridge between parents and students as well as between families and the college admission offices.
As the sole proprietor of my educational consulting practice, you are hiring me, and me alone. I never farm out any aspect of your application process to other people; when you hire me, you get me. I meet and work with you one-on-one. I am there for you and with you, as often as you need my guidance and assistance.
