For Parents

The college search is an arduous and potentially emotionally draining task for both parents and students. It is a task for which I am well prepared. My prior career of teaching high school seniors has given me an understanding of what this year is like for them. My resources, connections, and years of expertise will enable you and your student to have the information you need to make well informed decisions. I will show you the finer points of researching colleges, gathering appropriate information to narrow your college list, teach you the finer points of the application process including showing students how to write their best essays, and informing families of the workings of both need and merit based financial aid.

I strive to provide an open forum for discussion about what you and your student expect from their college experience. No one knows a student as well as their parents. Your insight and perspective give me a clearer image of your child. Strengths and weakness, goals and dreams passions and dream all contribute to a picture of a student. Sometime students themselves don't yet have a focused view of who they are. This is why your input is important to the process and why by working together we may help your student chart an appropriate post- secondary path.

If you have further questions about who I am or how the process works, feel free to contact me using the contact page and I will get back to you promptly.
