About Bridget

I am a professional college counselor with more than ten years experience in the DC Metropolitan area. I was recently recognized by the First Lady's Reach Higher program` for the work I am doing with first generation college-goers in Washington, DC. Currently, I have students enrolled all over the country in local and residential community colleges, military academies and ROTC programs, large state universities and small private colleges, as well as, very selective ivy league schools and less selective schools for students seeking a new start. My knowledge of programs around the country and throughout the region, coupled with my belief that there is a college program for every student, allows me to help families identify and plan a successful college admissions strategy.

Successful college planning includes high school (and middle school) course selection, out-of-school and extra-curricular activities, finical planning, scholarship applications and financial aid. Additional considerations include college entrance exam scheduling and preparation. However, the most important element of successful college planning is early individual assessment of needs, wants and capability. College planning is an incredibly personal experience. Each student’s success depends on successfully matching his or her academic, social, emotional and financial needs to an appropriate college or university program. Please give me call if you'd like to get the conversation started. Sooner is better, but it is not ever too late. Each student has to take their own path to success. Please let me help you find the right one for you.

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 currently the Director of College Counseling at a DC area school. I have worked in the field of college and career counseling since 2004. I successfully completed the Certificate in College Counseling program at UCSD. Have served as a webinar facilitator for the College Board and have been recognized by the First Lady's Reach Higher program, NACAC and CPE for the work I've done in the area of providing college access to first generation college-goers.
