I am the founder of a successful college consulting and career service firm and have worked with students throughout the United States and China. I help students and their families navigate the very competitive, complicated and long college admissions process. From Ivy admissions to highly selective liberal arts colleges and large public universities, I know how to put together an exceptional application to make your child stand out from the thousands of other bright, ambitious students.

I enjoy working with Division I, II and III athletes, and have advised many prospects through the entire recruiting process. Former clients have joined college golf, squash, baseball, field hockey and football teams. I also work with students interested in transferring to another school…successful transfers include MIT, Johns Hopkins, Columbia and other top universities with amazing merit scholarships!

My goal is to simplify the college application process and remove the stress that accompanies the process. I begin by developing a target list of schools, prepare the Common Application, provide writing assistance for all essays, discuss whether the SAT or ACT and/or Subject Tests are necessary, practice interviewing and add all college information to your child's Naviance account. Lastly, I order all standardized test scores and send them to each school and make sure that all each application is sent well before the deadlines.

There are so many things to consider when choosing a college or university:


What is geographic diversity and how can this help my application?
What is "Determination of Interest?" Are colleges really tracking emails to your child? (YES!)
Athletic Scholarships? NCAA - Division I, II or III? Merit or Leadership Scholarships?
Private vs. Public Universities? Are public schools really more affordable?
SAT vs. ACT Are test optional colleges REALLY optional?

Every year I attend professional conferences for Independent College Admissions Counselors, Guidance Counselors and College Admissions Reps ... so I know what colleges are looking for and am happy to share this information with you.

Call me or send me an email so we can discuss how I can help your child and family today!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Career Development

I began my career in the executive search field and conducted senior level (CEO VP, Director)) searches in a variety of industries for over 15 years.

I now offer a Career Search Service to help new graduates successfully navigate the very competitive job market. Whether you are interested in working for a Biotech Start-up, a Fortune 500 or the U.S. Government, I can help you find and respond to opportunities in ways you could not do yourself! There are hundreds of job boards on the Internet, and trying to determine which ones to apply to can become overwhelming and discouraging.

I work with each student to help identify appropriate jobs and careers based on their college major, internships, prior summer experience, location and financial goals.

Next, I prepare a custom resume and offer suggestions on how to penetrate one or two specific industries through networking activities, industry conferences, blogs, etc.

I know how difficult it is to have finally graduated from college and not have a job. Most clients are facing a huge mountain of debt and need to start earning money quickly. I have worked with dozens of young professionals and have an excellent track record of success! Don't sit at home and look for a job all alone; let me help and you'll be working sooner than you think -- I guarantee it!

College Counseling

My tutoring services can be adjusted to your family's needs; just essay assistance or comprehensive guidance through the entire application process.

College Application Essays - Common App -
Supplemental Essays & Questions

(Note: Many schools do not use the Common App and have multiple essays and questions often very lengthy)

Complete Application Preparation, Deadline Schedule, College Selection List, SAT/ACT Strategies, Merit Scholarship Guidance, Interview Role Playing, College Visits, Resume and Portfolio Preparation, Wait List Strategies.

NCAA Athletic Division I, II & III....New rules are now in place for rising Freshman....make sure your child is in compliance with core courses that are required! Coach Visit Preparation & Sample Questions.

My goal is to make the college application process as stress free (and even fun!) as possible. Strict time management and well organized goals will make the process painless!

I truly enjoy working with students and their families and helping them get accepted to the schools of their dreams! My job is to help your child get accepted into as many schools as possible with superior financial aid packages/merit packages! There is no better experience than to have lots of choices! I teach parents how to negotiate offers and give kids the confidence to present themselves in the best light possible.

I meet with students in person but also meet and work with students by SKYPE, email, or phone for additional assistance.

Please call me ... I look forward to helping your family!
