We've Got the Answers to Your Most Pressing College Questions.



Good college essays convey a small but special piece of who the applicant is to Admissions. Truly great college essays gain applicants an ally in the Admissions Office, someone who will bolt down the hallway and burst through the door of the Director's Office to then exclaim, "You have to read this applicant's essay about her rock collection!" We help students write that essay.

We Teach Teens to Craft Unforgettable College Essays.



Let us bring our expertise to you! Whether you're interested in smart, next steps, what's trending, a college planning night for high school parents or college transfers, or a presentation for middle school parents on what's coming, contact us to learn about our many, on-site offerings.

Choose Your Topic and Location, and We'll Do the Rest.


Invite us to come to your home, pastries and coffee in hand, and spend an hour with you and your friends discussing college admissions topics. This service is complimentary to you and a minimum of 4 guests. Additionally, host families receive a 1 hour consultation free of charge.
