INTRO TO COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SESSION The initial two-hour session is appropriate for current high school freshmen, sophomores and juniors and their parent(s). Especially in this time of rapidly changing college admissions, I help your family understand the current admissions landscape, answer specific questions pertaining to your student and provide concrete steps they can take now, even during the shelter-at-home period, to have stronger applications later. If you decide to enroll in a Paths2college Program following the Intro Session, this fee will be credited towards your Program Fee.
COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAM FOR JUNIORS & SENIORS (HS Class of 2022 & 2021) This includes acting as advisor, coach and project manager for your student's college preparation and eventually the application process. I help with academic planning, extracurriculars and test-prep strategies, interest assessments, researching balanced college lists, essay brainstorming and editing, application assistance, deadline management, admissions interview practice and college visit strategies. The program starts as early as June before 11th grade and continues until college applications are submitted senior year, but you can sign-up anytime if I have room. My approach is very personal and designed to help each student thrive and stand-out in their applications. We have regular sessions in person or via zoom, and both student and parents also have access to my college planning software which has research, communication and deadline management tools. Please contact me for more details.
SOPHOMORE PROGRAM (HS Class of 2023 students) Your student can do a lot in their earlier years of high school to ensure they will have strong college applications as a senior. For those who would like an earlier start, I meet quarterly with 10th graders to really get to know the student and make sure they are on track with course planning, meaningful extracurriculars, time management skills, test prep, stress management and summer activities. Parents attend the first half of first session with the student. Please contact me today for more info or to enroll.
COLLEGE ESSAY PACKAGES Strong personal essays are a crucial way to make your college applications stand out from the rest. My Essay Packages start with a 2 hour College Essay Boot Camp that serves as a catalyst to understand the different types of college essays and brainstorm strong essay topics. Seniors can sign-up solo or book a Boot Camp with a friend. After that, students schedule time with me separately to complete impactful essays that will complement the rest of their applications. Summer is the perfect time to get started. See: www.paths2college.com/college-essays to get started.
EXTRACURRICULARS AND/OR INTERNSHIP PLANNING & RESEARCH How you spend your time outside of school can have a big impact on your college acceptances and make your life a whole lot more interesting! I work with students to make sure they are using their time wisely and help them identify meaningful activities, internships, summer programs, volunteer opportunities and work experiences.
SCHOLAR ATHLETE COACHING There are special considerations and planning actions needed if you are a scholar athlete who would like to continue to compete in college. I can help you with this as well and have experience working with student athletes. In general, the college application process is somewhat accelerated for those hoping to be recruited so contact me soon if you are interested in this area.
HOURLY CONSULTING. Custom research can be arranged upon request.
PARENT ADVICE LINE. Parents, do you have a challenging decision to make along the path and just need to run it by someone with experience? I can offer guidance by phone or Zoom.
