College Smart Advising

Personalized Support for the College Application Process

Services Provided


My goal, as an independent counselor, is to tailor my support to the individual students and parents. In order to ensure that each student receives the support they need, families can either choose a comprehensive package of services designed to meet all of their college planning needs or contract for hourly assistance focusing on just one aspect of college planning and applications.
In order to provide the best support to my students, I cap each graduating class at fifteen comprehensive students. I will take a small number of hourly students if I if I am able to do so without impacting the service I provide to my comprehensive clients. Packages range from $500 up to $4500.
I am full for the Class of 2017 and have limited availability for the Class of 2018.

Getting Started Package (About 10 hours)
This package is designed for students at the end of middle school or during their first two years of high school. Up to four direct sessions to help students develop a plan for high school course work, explore extracurricular activities to meet the needs of their college aspirations, discuss options for summer activities, and plan for the PSAT, SAT, ACT, SAT Subject Tests, and AP exams. We can also cover self-exploration, both personal and career-related.

Hourly Package (In batches of 10 hours)

This package is for students seeking support with one individual component of the college application process. It can include sessions on topics like: brainstorming topics for your college essay, receiving feedback on your draft essays, researching colleges, developing an application timeline and organizational plan, preparing for an interview, making the most of your college visits, navigating financial aid options, or applying for scholarships.

Comprehensive Package (About 45 hours of support) Ideal for students who are ready to start college planning during their junior or senior year of high school, this package is designed to take students through the most crucial stages of the college search and application process.

Comprehensive Plus Package (About 60 hours of support)
Ideal for students who are completing more than 15 separate applications, applying to specialized programs (such as Service Academies, Film, Art School, Joint BA/MD, etc…) and specialized scholarships (such as NCAA and ROTC programs), this package is designed to take these unique students from start to finish in the high school planning and college application process.

I look forward to hearing from you!
