Why Work With a College Advisor?

College is a big decision. Getting there is complicated and often stressful for the whole family. As an independent college consultant, I customize each and every college plan and guide students every step of the way from exploration to application and admissions. Could your family benefit from an unbiased independent educational consultant who has individually guided more than 100 students on their journey to college? 

I can help you:

  • Choose high school classes: Before the application process even starts, I’ll help you choose the classes that build out a solid college-bound transcript.

  • Point you in the right direction: My work is individualized to each student, and my college admissions profile assessment will help you identify your strengths and colleges that would be a good fit.

  • Build your college list: I’ve visited more than 75 colleges and researched hundreds more in the U.S. and U.K., looking at each college’s strengths and personality. This is so I can help you identify schools that match your interests, personality, needs, and admissions profile.

  • Choose a major: Whether you already know what you want to do with your life, or just know what you’d like to study, I’ll help match you to colleges and programs that to fulfill your dreams.

  • Shine at exam time: I’ll help you identify which college entrance exams to take, and when to take them. Timing is key in your test success. 

  • Stay on track with applications: We’ll establish a realistic schedule to get applications submitted on-time and complete.

  • Write stand-out essays: No, I won’t write your essays for you. I will help make sure the essays you write are authentic expressions of who you are so your application gets noticed.  

  • Paying for college: We’ll explore every option to make sure college fits your budget, from financial aid and merit scholarships to the college choice itself.

Some families say one of the most important benefits is the way I help both parents and students talk about their college dreams and expectations, then keep everyone moving forward and focused on a shared goal—a great college experience!
