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

Words cannot express our joy over the news that J. was awarded the Powell scholarship ($144,000)! It is the 'too good to be true' that is true...so many things led up to this achievement and we are so very proud. Thanks for being a very important part of bringing it all together: I am convinced that you were the key ingredient that helped bring all that he knew, experienced, dreamed of, etc together, helping him to communicate in a clear and interesting (and yes, effective) way. I am sure he feels a bit overwhelmed and likely a bit scared...but this program from the outset of me learning of it seemed perfect for him. I love that he will be in a setting with other serious scholars, he will be mentored and given opportunities to apply what he is learning. Thank you, thank you! Hugs and gratefulness!
