One-on-one sessions provide an additional level of support for students registered in our college planning cohort program. Each session is in response to the unique needs of each student such as additional guidance in essay writing, expansion of a student’s college list, or preparing students for college/scholarship interviews.
Type of Support Offered
Our one-on-one support provides all-virtual guidance personalized to student and family needs. Each year, we successfully assist high school and college students with college essays, preparing for college and scholarship interviews, and providing pre-reviews of undergraduate and graduate school college applications within the context of the selectivity of the institutions to which students are applying.
