About Vimla

Welcome! I am a college access professional with experience in college counseling, college admissions, financial aid, event planning and development. I am currently the Director of College Readiness at a Chicago high school. My background, however, is in college admissions. I have read and reviewed hundreds of college applications and accepted and denied hundreds of students. I hope to now use that knowledge to reassure and guide families through a somewhat complicated admission process.

I am a member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling as well as the Illinois Association for College Admission Counseling. I am also participating in a new credential program through a partnership with Thrive Chicago and CPS (Chicago College and Career Advising Credential). I have participated and presented at multiple conferences both locally and nationally.

I love counseling students and families! In my free time I am a mentor with a competitive college access organization. I would like to work with students from all over the Chicago area. As a professional I have access to the most up to date college and scholarship information.

Email is the best way to contact me about setting up individual counseling sessions. I have evening availability as well as weekend availability. Feel free to reach out at any time in the college search/application process!

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.

College Counseling

I am a current college counselor who is available for individual appointments. I have completed multiple professional development courses on college counseling and have also worked in admissions and financial aid. I have read applications and admitted hundreds of students to a private selective university. I am also active in professional organizations.
