My Coaching Program for Teens

As a coach I focus on where you are in the process and where you need to go. We work together to discover what you have yet to learn about the college search process…. I ask lots of questions!

I help you:

  • discover your strengths
  • identify your challenges
  • support you in figuring out what environments – academic and social – will support you in doing your best work
  • help you manage the process of sifting through the almost overwhelming amount of information about colleges
  • plan visits to colleges
  • prepare for interviews, and
  • point you toward resources for financial aid

I listen to your concerns and celebrate their progress.

In six sessions, I help teens feel more in control of this daunting endeavor and find the colleges that will be a great matches for them.
