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 wonderful to work with and extremely helpful - for both myself and my daughter Shania. The entire college application process can seem very daunting - especially when you first get started. Kirsten took Shania (and me) through each stage, from beginning to end. She also offered her perspective and advice on which colleges might be the best fit for Shania, based on her personality, talents and strengths, as well as our financial resources. Having access to her website was also extremely helpful when Shania was considering different colleges. I would recommend Kirsten to any parent and high school student as they begin the college research and application journey."
