About Spence

Formulating a college plan can be a daunting task! The internet has made an overwhelming amount of "data" readily available and there are many paths to choose from! It can be difficult to know which is the right one for you. It has been my life's work to guide and assist students (and families) on this journey as they plan for a future beyond high school...so here is a bit about my background:

After 30+ years in counseling at the Middle and High School levels, I recently retired as the Director of the College and Career Center at a large suburban Philadelphia high school. I was directly responsible for the creation, delivery and maintenance of the post-secondary planning curriculum/experience for the school. This included college searches, application management, standardized testing, financial aid/scholarships and career exploration. In a typical school year that involved individual and small group sessions with students, parent conferences, evening programs, working with special needs students and creating hand-outs and web page/newspaper articles.

What I have developed from this experience is an efficient, organized way to manage this entire process - and it is my hope to be able to share it with you!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

College Counseling

My academic credentials include an undergraduate degree in Psychology and a Masters in Counseling. I have worked 30+ years in public school settings as a Certified School Counselor in PA and recently retired as the Director of the College and Career Center at a large suburban high school. My duties in that position included the creation and delivery of post-secondary planning experience/curriculum for the students/parents in the district. More specifically, I provided guidance on college searches, standardized testing, application management, financial aid/scholarships and career exploration.
