I am a college professor of philosophy and an independent college consultant with experience tutoring standardized tests. I offer personalized advice at every stage of the path toward college, and I have helped many students get into their first-choice college and win scholarships to go there.

I earned my undergraduate degree from Yale University and graduate degrees from Cambridge University and the University of Texas at Austin. I am a passionate teacher with almost 20 years of experience teaching students the critical, analytical, and expressive skills that are tested on standardized tests like the SAT, ACT, GRE, and LSAT.

I offer college consulting and tutoring in person for a base rate of $125/hr, or online for $75/hr. I also offer lesson packages at a discount - contact me for more details!

The nation's top colleges recently pledged to revise their application requirements to emphasize the "daily ethical engagement" and "genuine character" of the applicant. I can help you navigate these new requirements. I am an expert in college admissions with years of experience teaching students how to comprehend the college admissions process and how to get the most out of college. I am a published author currently working on a book on college admissions.

Make the college of your choice compete for you! If you are looking for expert advice on how to make your college application as strong as it can be, or you simply want to improve your standardized test scores, I can help. I am available on a flexible schedule and at flexible rates. Contact me today!

College Counseling

I am a college professor with 17 years of experience teaching higher education, including many years of teaching a class for first-year students on the college admissions process they have just gone through and rethink what college can offer them in the years to come. I have written a book on college admissions currently under review by Macmillan Press. I have experience working with parents and students to help them understand the admissions process from the college's point of view, to make their own best choices for how to position themselves as an applicant, to choose colleges to apply to that are a good fit, and to write essays that best express their individual passions and strengths.
