I believe that each family’s situation is unique. Pre-made packages don’t always fit. As part of every consultation, I collaborate with the student and his or her family to build a package that is completely unique, suited to their needs and circumstances. However, families don’t always know what they don’t know. The pathway to college has changed tremendously over the past 10-20 years. What we, as parents, knew about applying to college is no longer relevant. So, while I tailor my services to each individual family, I also ensure that all the basics are covered. I do this by approaching my work from an educational aspect, working from a curriculum that I develop for every session. In that way, families don’t have to worry that they haven’t asked the right questions. I will provide answers and coaching every step of the way.
