About Lindsay

Hello! Now that the 2017-2018 school year has begun, I am still looking for a few more high school seniors interested in assistance with the college application/essay process. I am a National Certified Counselor and hold my CT School Counseling Certification; I currently work in Fairfield County in a large high school where 98% of the graduating class attends a 4-year institution. Previously, I worked in college admissions at a small private school in New England.

I have worked with numerous students in Fairfield County who apply to a variety of schools ranging from technical and vocational schools, "safety" schools, international schools, up through the Ivy League institutions. I guide my students to brainstorm, draft, and revise personal college essays as well as supplemental essays - I am happy to assist in thoroughly completing applications too. In the past, I have also taught College Essay Writing Courses for a local Continuing Education program. (**I do NOT write essays; my students create all original work, I just help to polish it!)

While the college application process can be a very stressful time, my goal is to make the process a seamless transition for the whole family. Please contact me if you are interested, I look forward to meeting you.

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.

College Counseling

I am a National Certified Counselor and a Certified CT School Counselor with experience as High School Counselor and in College Admissions. Last summer I taught a College Essay Writing Course for a local Continuing Education program.
