My students are enrolled in and have graduated from colleges around the world

Applying to college or university can be overwhelming. I help students and their families prepare for and navigate the process with personalized and individualized attention. I advise students based on their interests and abilities; I don’t use a “one size fits all” strategy. With ten years of experience working with high school students from the US and beyond, I help make the process less intimidating and more fun.college-students-filter-2
