College Advising Packages

 

The college search and admissions process has changed dramatically and is not how I remembered it- fill in the relevant information and click send. The process is multi-faceted and requires a great deal of organization and planning. Most importantly, the process is centered on finding right-fit universities for the student. Higher education is about more than academics- it is also about opportunities to grow socially and emotionally. Students who find the right-fit college environment will thrive and build self-confidence with a better-defined sense of self.  

 

My work with students is individualized; thus, I elect to offer a free consult with families to determine the fit of our personalities and work styles. Finding the right-fit advisor, who will guide a student through an individualized plan, is as important as finding the right-fit university. To that end, I have designed packages to address specific milestones in the search and application process; yet coach the student through an individualized path in achieving the milestone. If my packages are not the right fit for a student, I work with the student to design their time to help achieve their goals. My work is guided by the ethical practices as detailed in the NACAC Statement of Principles of Good Practice and IECA. I also guarantee confidential treatment of all conversations and materials.
