My services not only include personalized college planning for your child, but access to state-of-the art college search and application software, as well as online financial aid and career interest tools.
There is no charge for an initial 30-minute consultation on the phone or in my office. This is an informal discussion with you and your student to explain my services, as well as a chance to determine if we are a good fit for each other.
