"Your college application could be the most important sales pitch of your life." USA Today.

45% more students are applying to college in the U.S. compared to a decade ago, yet the number of available places remains virtually the same. The Wall Street Journal reports that the typical American Admission Officer makes a decision in 8-10 minutes: admit, deny or waitlist. In approximately 85% percent of the cases, the application is not reviewed again. Talk about the importance of first...

"Your college application could be the most important sales pitch of your life." USA Today.

45% more students are applying to college in the U.S. compared to a decade ago, yet the number of available places remains virtually the same. The Wall Street Journal reports that the typical American Admission Officer makes a decision in 8-10 minutes: admit, deny or waitlist. In approximately 85% percent of the cases, the application is not reviewed again. Talk about the importance of first impressions!

I make sure your application stands out. Essays, activity list, resume: every detail is strategically calibrated. From middle school to graduate school, I have counseled hundreds of families. Year after year, my qualified students consistently gain access to the Ivy League and comparably competitive institutions (MIT, Stanford, U Chicago, Duke, Carnegie Mellon, Cambridge, Oxford, et. al.). The essays of my students scintillate! I help students boost GPA through composition coaching and provide support through the entire admission process and beyond. I curate graduate school admission SOP, theses and doctoral dissertations as well as applications for grants, scholarships, fellowships, internships and jobs.

Credentials are of paramount importance. I am a Professional Member of IECA (Independent Education Consultants Association), the highest level of qualification in the industry for which the standards for acceptance are extremely rigorous. I am also a member of NCAG (National College Advocacy Group) and NACAC (National Association for College Admission Counseling).

According to NACAC, the average student-to-counselor ratio at large U.S. public schools is 482:1. At Philips Andover, the ratio is 9:1. As an IEC, I serve to bridge that yawning gap.

I actively engage in training of IECs and I maintain longstanding relationships with university gatekeepers. My finger is on the pulse of admission trends at all times.

I look forward to meeting you!

College Counseling

In a perfect world, there would be no need for college admission consultants. Applications would be straightforward and manageable, and the process would engender an even playing field. Instead, the mutability of admissions criteria and the strategizing necessary to achieve the desired result can be dizzying for a non-professional. Competition is global and increasingly fierce in a volatile economy, particularly for merit awards which can exceed $300,000. I move heaven and earth to ensure that my students submit the strongest applications possible to the right schools. Your success becomes my mission. Applying to college is a critical, high stakes juncture in the life of every young person and I take that very seriously. Essays must dazzle, riveting the Admission Officer's attention to the page. I work hard to discover topics which get each student fired up, innovating research / service / passion projects and character-defining narratives accordingly. College lists are formed based on an unbeatable combination of algorithms, statistical studies, insider knowledge honed over decades and pure gut instinct. We devise together a game plan and proceed with diligence to maximize your profile. No stone is left unturned. Admission officers favor versatile changemakers bursting with intellectual curiosity, and that's what we deliver. Together, we get the job done and usher you forth into your future exuding confidence and self-possession.

Amazing College Planning Coach

Ann is perhaps the best college planning coach one can hope for. As result of Ann's wonderful mentorship, my son is able to receive acceptances from top UC's and several national reputable universities with scholarships; some with as much as $150K. Ann has truly made an impact on my son's outlook on how he should be making the best of his next 4 years in college while thinking through career options and/or graduate school planning. Ann is a true professional and wonderful to work with.

Excellent Tutor

Ann gave us lots of valuable and professional suggestions! She is so supportive, responsible and responses fast. We, although worked with her for only 2 hours, perceive her as highly knowledgeable and professional! Will definitely hire her as our consultant for college.

Excellent tutor

It was a real privilege working with Ann over the course of a few months, where I was preparing myself for the application to MBA programs at top US Universities. Ann was not only swift and diligent in answering all my questions, but she provided me with a necessary context of the application process. Her advice and experience was absolutely key in achieving my objectives. I can frankly say that I never worked with a better tutor. Not only I was admitted to the programs I selected, but I also managed to secure scholarships. I highly recommend Ann to any student that is eager to aim high. I can not estimate how much I benefited from her advice, but I know that the results of this cooperation are all worth every price.

outstanding consultant

I have never seen such a consultant like Ann. During the intense stage of college Essay application, she is always ready to answer your questions with quick yet concise replies, whether it’s late at night or early in the morning. Ann is really dedicated to and professional at her job with rich experience. She can clearly grasp the essence of the essays in a short amount of time. She is truly a magician- she can turn a lengthy paper into a short and condensed essay with additional information and same concept- with her magical power! Although we started working with her just recently, I’m really grateful and thankful for all that she’s done for us. Thank you so much, Ann!

Possibly the BEST tutor you will ever find!

Ann is extremely professional and insightful. Though I've only had one session with her, it was like a journey of rediscovering myself. Not to mention that she has a very organized and efficient workflow, you can immediately sense her dedication and enthusiasm for her job. I would definitely recommend Ann for anyone who's feeling overwhelmed or lost in the application process.
