I’ve been passionate about educating students for 25 years. I work with students on all aspects of the college admissions process, from choosing, preparing, and maximizing the SAT or ACT exam, choosing the right college and strategies for paying for it, and navigating the admissions process from deadlines, applications, personal statements and essays, interviews, offers, and more. On a limited basis, I also work with students from elementary to high school on improving their understanding and achievement in course work across a number of subjects. Let’s get in touch — I look forward to helping you do your best, and achieve your goals!

Coming Events

WHO: Rising High School Seniors and Others Making College or Transfer Applications

WHERE: In-person Downtown Olympia for Groups, Zoom Option for Individuals

WHY: Especially in an era of heightened competition and “test optional” admissions, the personal statements and essays that form the core of a student’s application have taken on critical importance. These are not run-of-the-mill essays; rather they are the student’s best chance to establish a personal brand, introduce themselves compellingly, and explain their interest and qualifications. These sessions show how to do this, from beginning to end.
