College List Development + Financial Aid Guidance


Are you feeling lost and overwhelmed trying to research the thousands of colleges available to decide which ones to apply to?

  • Do you have some colleges in mind but are unsure what else is out there?
  • Do you need guidance on what college is a likely versus a reach for you?
  • Do you want to make college more affordable & not pay sticker-price?

If your answer is yes to any or all of the above, you need a list of colleges to apply to that considers:

✓ Your teens preferences & goals

✓ Your teens academic record

✓ Your family’s finances in relation to mandatory college financial aid forms & formulas

This is exactly what I consider when I put a list of colleges for you to consider applying to. 

A smart college list saves you money, time (& sometimes even heartache), introduces you to hidden gem colleges,  and can keep you and/or your teen from years of overwhelming debt.

We'll work together to figure out what makes a great fit for you, and you'll end up with a list of 8-12+ colleges, balanced in terms of chances of acceptance, an estimate of the financial aid you might receive at each, & a report with highlights from each college.

Bonus: Includes 6 months access to Custom College Plan, an online platform with comprehensive information for every college in the country.

Coaching to Write a Great College Essay/ Personal Statement


Done well, a college essay helps students articulate something about themselves that they're proud of (& it does NOT have to be along the lines of bringing water to a remote village or winning a state title!).

An effective essay can make a college admissions officer say - "I want that kid!"

I'll coach your teen to write that kind of essay using a 10-step process developed by professional writers JUST for students applying to college.

Includes 1:1 coaching, a clear 10-step process to follow, multiple reviews/reflection back on each step/draft, unlimited support from start to finish, & personalized timing & nudges to ensure a timely finish.

The students I support write great application essays and become stronger writers, better prepared for college and beyond.

Bonus: Access to a 10-step college essay writing process and software platform your student can refer to to write ALL of his/her college essays.
