How can we help you?
We offer a menu of options at extremely affordable rates. In the initial video call, we will estimate the time that will be required to provide each service. Choose one option. Choose some. Choose all. Find a time that works for you. Then book your video conference with your credit card. As needed, there will be free follow up video calls and emails. Please cancel and/or reschedule at least 24 hours in advance. After the initial call, subsequent calls will be booked with a link we will send via email.
Free Initial Consultation
We want to get to know you and you want to get to know us. Finding the right fit for a college is as important as getting accepted. And you’ll want to get a sense of whether we are the right fit as your college application coach. Book a free video call with no obligations. Be sure also to ask about our Comprehensive Package to save you money and a lot of the worry.
Course Selection & Extracurriculars
We recommend at least one counseling session a year to keep you on track. We can help inform you about what colleges are looking for in course selection and extracurriculars. We can also help connect you to opportunities and suggest activities during the school year and during the summer to enrich high school curricular experiences. We help to keep freshmen and sophomores on track.
This will include a series of video calls and unlimited email follow ups until the college list is completed. Beginning the search, narrowing the search, and then refining the search to find reach, target, and safe schools. But most importantly, finding schools that you want to go to. What’s most important is finding the right fit. We’ll help you every step of the way. .
Sophomores, Juniors & Seniors
We offer one-on-one, live sessions in all three tests and all sections. Each session is 90 minutes. By junior year, the GPA is not going to go up much. no matter how much effort your student makes. But putting in some effort to prepare for college entrance exams can pay big dividends.

Graduate School Application Personal Statement Review
Graduate school applications are due soon. You will need a personal statement. Some schools also require statements of purpose or statements of intent. We will review each of your statements for effectiveness and for technical errors, and we will provide you with feedback in time for you to brush them up before sending them in. You want your statements to stand out and be highly polished.
$200.00 per hour
Many graduate programs require a GRE. Business schools have traditionally required GMATs, and law schools have required LSATs. But more of both have started allowing GREs. This prep program is live and individual. With an initial interview, we can find out how many hours you might need, depending on where you’re at and what score you want.
