The college and university admissions process is not only a passion of mine, it’s an integral part of my life. I am the father of four. One is a college student now, and I have 3 more that need me to stay on the top of my game for when it’s their time to apply to their “dream school.” I have been part of the college admissions world since my time as an Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions at the University of Southern California. I have spent a number of years advising high school and community college students on how to manage the college admissions process. As a college admissions counselor, I was one of the professionals at the university who would evaluate student applications, calculate their “admissions GPA”, review their test scores and read their essays. In most cases I was the decision maker on whether or not they were admitted. I bring this insight and experience every time I have an opportunity to speak to a young person about their academic future.
I have two years of experience in Middle School & High School Outreach, USC Office of Civic and Community Relations. I also have experience presenting to small and large audiences of students the basics of the college admission and how to prepare.
I spent five years as Assistant Director of Undergraduate Admissions, University of Southern California. Besides managing a sizable Southern and Central California territory, I served as the Director of Latino recruitment for Undergraduate Admissions.
I believe there are a number of “perfect” colleges and universities for each applicant. The trick is finding the one’s that best match the student’s academic goals and objectives. While I love the big Ra-Ra colleges (hey, I’m a Trojan!) and the “name brand” schools, I also believe there are a number of other “perfect fit” colleges for each student, that they either have never considered and in some cases, even heard of. Part of the fun is finding out which colleges and universities these are. Remember, it’s not always how you start …. it’s how you finish. The sooner we begin preparing, the easier life will be during college application season. Let’s get started!

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.
