How it Works

Whether you need comprehensive assistance or targeted advice, there's a plan to fit your family's needs.

1. Contact: Contact me by email or phone. We’ll have a brief discussion about your student and where you are in the process of applying for colleges. At this time, we can set up an initial meeting. 

2. Meeting: I will meet with the student and parent(s) (if you wish) to determine personal goals, explain my advising process and answer questions. 

3. Proposal: I will prepare a college advising plan for your student, which will provide a roadmap to college admissions.

4. Fee Structure:

  • College Launch Meeting: a one-hour family meeting to discuss college options, test planning, timeline, and answer questions.  
  • Packages: I offer 10-, 20- or 30-hour advising packages for a flat fee. This approach offers flexibility, value and continuity.

Testimonials

We were overwhelmed by the college application process and having a hard time communicating with our son about all the necessary steps. Liz immediately took time to get to know Myles better, and started giving him valuable guidance that he took to heart. Liz has made herself available throughout the process, and communicated regularly via email; Myles is now well on his way to completing his applications! It has been wonderful to have a trusted "non-parent" adult involved in the process.
