College Admissions Coaching
College admissions coaching is an integral part of my UNLIMITED PLUS package.
My unique approach combines my many years experience as a Dartmouth interviewer, with the same entrepreneurial marketing techniques that have allowed me to build a series of successful businesses, into helping a student market himself or herself to a highly competitive college.
While the salesmanship may be clever, the process must be entirely organic – a student must take those qualities that make him or her special and develop and accentuate them during the high school years, substantiated by activities and projects I suggest to use a student's time most efficiently. In most cases, this includes guiding a student toward becoming the CEO of his or her own company or charity. (It's a lot easier than you might think!)
The end result is a high school resume designed to blow college admissions officers away and create the greatest possible chance of being accepted.
The components of my admissions coaching include:
Assessing student academic & extracurricular strengths
Developing a unique branding strategy built around the student's existing interests and abilities that make the student stand out to admissions officers
Coaching student to become CEO of his or her own company or charity (aligned with the branding strategy) to absolutely "wow" admissions officers
Helping students present their unique abilities to admissions officers in the most powerful way
Using brainstorming and writing exercises to guide students toward exceptional essay topics
Coaching students through the process of essay writing and application preparation
Review of applications and essays prior to submission
