My name is Zoe and I am a current High School Counselor. I graduated with honors from Indiana University Bloomington where I studied Psychology and I have also earned my Master's of Science in School Counseling from the University of Vermont. Throughout my career, I have worked within the mental health counseling field and in schools.

My expertise is in college application tutoring, specifically in essay coaching. I work with students on a daily basis to create powerful application packages for the respective universities that they apply to. The students that I have worked with have received acceptance to top universities as well as competitive graduate, law, and medical schools.

I recognize that the college essay offers students an opportunity to tell their own stories to admissions counselors. In my coaching, I work with students through the various drafts of their essays to make a strong and lasting impression above and beyond the thousands of other students that college admissions are reviewing. I have had students successfully complete the Common App, Coalition App, and supplemental essays like the UC Personal Insight Questions.

I also work with students on their executive functioning and study skills. I have tutored students to develop an awareness of how they best learn so that they can address the following skills:
1. Studying for Exams/Quizzes
2. Time Management/Time Blocking
3. Personal Organization

Most importantly, I hope to create positive connections with students so that they can begin to confidently take steps towards their academic and personal goals.

I am an experienced study skills and an executive functioning coach! I know firsthand how difficult the stresses of academics and maintaining one's social and emotional health can be! I am a High School Counselor with a breadth of experience working with students in managing their high school courses and college applications on top of their extracurriculars, jobs, and family responsibilities. I have worked as a counselor as well as an individual tutor and thoroughly enjoy helping students realize their academic potential through creating personalized plans that are tailored to their specific learning styles and needs. My career background is in the intersection of clinical mental health and school counseling. I am a trained counselor in mental health modalities and work primarily from a trauma-informed lens. Within my executive functioning tutoring, I also recognize that a student's social and emotional health is important to address. I work with students to ensure that they are addressing feelings of anxiety and stress that can result from their coursework. With my help, my students develop a toolbox of coping strategies to independently address different stressors as they arise. The students that I tutor on executive functioning have improved their class grades, submitted any outstanding late work, and developed long-term skills for success regarding prioritization and time management.

College Counseling

I am currently a high school level counselor and work with students on developing the strongest college application for their personal, academic, and extracurricular history. I have experience in tutoring and counseling students in private and public high schools through the college application process. My students have received full ride scholarships and acceptances to top universities as well as graduate, medical, and law schools (such as Harvard, Yale, Boston University, and UC Berkeley). As college applications include so many moving parts, having a professional to guide and pace the process can not only ease anxiety but aid in creating an application that the student is proud to submit. In my college application tutoring, I get to know students on a personal level so that we can strategically highlight important areas of strength in their application. If you choose to work with me on your college application process we will complete the following: 1. Outlining the options that you or your student have available by exploring all post-secondary options and defining a list of schools that will be applied to (safety/target/reach). 2. Reviewing the steps included in the college application process for each school that will be applied to. 3. Creating a game plan that will organize and pace when each portion of the application should be completed. 4. Brainstorming ideas to develop creative and impactful essays and supplemental essays.
