College List - Best Fit

As an Independent Educational Consultant, I am trained to help students find their “Best-Fit” school or college:

  • Academic fit

  • Social fit

  • Financial fit

  • Cultural fit

  • Environmental fit

My knowledge and experience takes the burden of uncertainty off the family’s plate. I visit school and college campuses and interact with leaders in education, college admissions and college counseling on a regular basis. Each school, college and university has its own culture.  Each student is unique. I get to know students and schools to assist in making the best fit and match for each student.
