I help public, private, and homeschooled students create clear, concise, and compelling college applications to a balanced list of right fit colleges. Additionally, I guide homeschool parents to craft counselor documents that explain, enhance, and enrich their student’s application.

Why work with me?

1

Explore Phase

Our collaboration begins with the "Explore" phase, where your student will complete thought-provoking exercises to uncover their unique strengths, interests, and aspirations. Together, we’ll identify the key factors, from potential majors and career paths to campus culture and academic rigor, that define a “best fit” college experience.

2

Equip Phase

Next, we'll delve into the “Equip" phase, outfitting your student with the tools and strategies to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of colleges and universities. Students learn how to research and analyze each institution's offerings, compare them against their own priorities, and curate a balanced college list that aligns with their goals.

3

Execute Phase

Finally, in the "Execute" phase, your student will receive dedicated guidance through the entire application process. From crafting a compelling personal statement and supplemental essays to optimizing their activities list and interviews, I'll provide in-depth feedback and support to help them present their authentic self in the most impressive light.
