About Serena

Hi! I'm very happy to provide a unique experience for parents and students. I am a private school counselor! I work with students from 8th through 12th grade and assist with their career and college planning or next step after high school. I strive to alleviate any the anxieties both parents and their children experience when thinking about that next step. I've worked in public school as a school counselor and have decided to work outside the school system where I can really strive to provide tailored counseling services for each student and parent I work with. Contact me today so we can start discussing your child's future! Hi! I'm very happy to provide a unique experience for parents and students. I am a private school counselor!

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 have received a Masters of Education in School Counseling, I am Florida State Certified in School Counseling, and have worked over 5 years in a high school assisting students with college and career development. I use various assessments to determine a student's Holland Code or area of interest that would indicate what career field(s) they would be most intrigued by and/or successful with. These career clusters (as they are often called) are: Investigative, Social, Artistic, Realistic, Enterprising, and Conventional.

College Counseling

I have received a Masters of Education in School Counseling, I am Florida State Certified in School Counseling, and have worked over 5 years in a high school assisting students with college and career development. I have access to a multitude of scholarship, financial aid, and college planning resources. I've led discussions on financial aid, and presented a community Powerpoint on financial aid at College Goal Sunday (free financial aid event for parents and students that is hosted around the nation). I promote various college fairs and college campus visits. I have various college planning checklists that I tailor for each student based on their individual goals. I have an assortment of guidelines to assist students with the essay writing portion of the college application. I also help students understand the difference between various acceleration programs (IB/AICE/AP/Dual Enrollment) and how that is interpreted and/or will help them at the college level. I help students with their course selection for high school and college.
