Here's where I'm coming from...
You might assume that families hire me because I flaunt a flawless record of getting students into Ivy League schools...
But the truth is, I don’t actually claim to be able to get anyone in anywhere. Because, the question begs, if it’s me getting them in, what happens when they get there?
No, my real superpower is this...
I scour the globe (yes, some of the best-hidden gems are found internationally) for exciting opportunities that will fit the personality, talents, and passions of each student I see.
More often, my work consists of easing students and parents into a radical idea:
Instead of making students suitable for admission at hyper-selective household-name universities, I focus on finding universities that are suitable for them.
This is the relentlessly student-centric approach I take to this process.
I offer a bold (but lighthearted) approach to college exploration and education consulting to students around the world
High school is a tall order for any student. Within a very short time period, students must find out who they are as humans, what they like, and what they’re good at, while, at the same time, meeting the demands of class assignments, friends, family, and extracurriculars.
Supporting a student who is going through this time of life is a chore. As tough as it is, school counselors, mentors, teachers, and coaches do incredibly well with the resources they’re given (as do we parents).
But let’s face it. There are a lot of gaps that need to be filled.
My mission is to fill those gaps. And to fill them in a way that's focused on the long-term fulfillment and well-being of the student.
There are a few guideposts for this work. I know I'm doing my job when your student…
This is why I work in a lighthearted (albeit just serious enough) fashion. I've found this is what keeps them engaged. I rate myself, not through the approval of famous colleges, but through the beaming students who graduate from this program and go on to live authentic lives.
I work virtually with students around the world.
Here's the "Plan"...
I work with high school students to become acquainted with their unique talents and interests and put them to use, explore their post-high school options, including programs of study, colleges, and careers, and develop college applications that reflect their truest selves. Moving into senior year, I support students through the application process, keeping them on track with their goals, and guiding them through any twists or turns that come up on the path!
Here’s how we do this:
Getting Started: Creating a Vision and a Plan
You're welcome to start with these first three steps. My cost for this mini consultation is $1200.
Or you can continue along with me as your guide!
Moving Right Along: Putting the Plan into Action
Wrapping Up: Seeing Vision Come to Fruition
There will be ZERO OBLIGATION on your end at this point.
The only thing we ask is that you and your student set aside at least 20 minutes to fill out the application below. Please encourage your student to be fully honest. This will help us get to know them as much as possible before even meeting them. It’s the first step in ensuring that we’re the right kind of peanut butter for your jelly.
We’ll reach out to you within three business days of submittal to give you the next steps.
