We respect and relate to the student audience.
We are there when needed to provide advice and support, or just listen.
We provide a full spectrum of services.
A student with specialized interest in urban issues and architecture needs guidance in the college search process.
We analyzed numerous programs to find the right mix of practical programs and liberal arts. We recommended visits to campuses and helped select a program in an urban setting from the available options.
A gifted student isn’t challenged academically and doesn’t fit in socially with her peers at a popular middle school.
We created original lesson plans and writing tasks around the student’s unusual array of interests, providing stimulation and enrichment outside the classroom.
A public high school student lacks the confidence in critical writing that will be necessary for success in the application process and in a competitive college.
We created numerous original writing tasks along with a primer with grammar and usage fundamentals. We continued to work with the student through the college essay creation and submission.
A star athlete doesn’t have the time to complete applications because of the conflict with football season, but the applications need to be turned in on time.
We helped narrow down the schools with top football programs to those that fit the strengths and personality of the athlete. We scheduled deliverables and were there for editorial (and moral) support.
We got to know the student and recommended which tests played to his strengths. We recommended the optimal timing for tests and suggested Subject Tests that would bring out his strengths.
We developed and executed numerous original writing prompts and helped the family through the private school application process. He was admitted to a nurturing school and eventually a top university.
We held a mock interview using an array of challenging questions and coached the student on how to handle on-camera issues.
A high school cross-country runner with an A+ personality and a B+ transcript seeks admission to an elite university.
We encouraged the student to tell his story through a one-of-a-kind Common App essay and to keep contacting coaches on his own. The result was stellar! Not only did the student gain admission in Early Decision 2, but he earned a spot on the team!
