About Deb

I have been a college counselor and consultant working with students on the college process for the past 15 years. I have worked with inner city students in both Boston and NYC, private school and competitive public school students in NYC, as well as consulting with a diverse array of students across the US.

I achieved my MSEd in School Counseling from Hunter College and am currently an Adjunct Professor for the school. I work full time as Director of College Counseling in a top NYC public school and offer new counselors a three day program over the summer to build their college counseling skills. As a member of NACAC (National Association for College Admissions Counseling) I have also been working along side other counselors from NYS and the NYC DOE to incorporate a college counseling component into counseling graduate programs across New York.

Over the course of my 15 years as a college counselor I have worked with all different types of students and have made myself knowledgeable in every area of college counseling. I am a generalist that is seasoned working with everyone from undecided students applying to liberal arts based programs, to those looking to play NCAA sports, auditioning for theater/music programs, or creating portfolios for art schools. I have ample experience assisting with the financial aid process and scholarship applications as well.

The bulk of my assistance as a college consultant is working with students on choosing colleges, writing essays, organizing their applications, preparing for visits and interviews, and analyzing financial aid packages. I walk students through the entire process from beginning to end. My goal is to make the process run as smoothly as possible and for students to enjoy it instead of completely stressing out.

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.

Great tutor and resource on college process

Deb helped my daughter to organize her thoughts and complete a college essay that helped to showcase her strengths and experience. She also gave valuable advice on the college process, ideas on colleges that may be a good fit and a resource on the application process. I recommend Deb for anyone who needs some guidance during the stressful college application process.
