In general, the effectiveness of a personal consultant increases the earlier the student starts his or her work.
The ideal consulting starting point is 9th grade, as students are encouraged to take the key required classes that will later on provide them with the opportunity to take AP classes.
In a single meeting, as well as phone, email, or other in-person consultations throughout the year, I will research and develop a personalized plan based on the students' interests, personality, grades and test scores, as well as the financial needs and geographic location.
11th grade is the last full year of a student's academic record that colleges will see before most applications are submitted. At this time, it is important to have an overview of the current admissions process, and guidance for choosing colleges which best match a student's interests and profile.
Consulting consists of regular family and/or student meetings, "best fit" college research, and phone and email contacts throughout the year.
Second semester 11th graders and fall semester 12th graders are working toward the same goals, but juniors have the advantage of time. Consulting consists of regular family and/or student meetings, "best fit" college research, and phone and email contacts throughout the year.

I will be happy to answer any questions you might have about my philosophy or the advantages of hiring my firm.
Kirsten was fantastic to work with through every step of the daunting task of searching for a college for our son. Her combination of expertise, positivity, and integrity was exactly what was needed. My son felt very comfortable working with her, and he believed that she genuinely cared about what he wanted in a college and what his goals were for the future. She seemed to work tirelessly to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information necessary to navigate the labyrinth of the college application process. Even after applications were finished and acceptances and decision were made, she continued to provide useful information and insight. This has been especially valuable while dealing with the uncertainty during the Coronavirus pandemic. We wouldn't hesitate to work with her again, and we would whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a thorough, honest, and supportive college specialist. We can't imagine having done this without her!
