For 2018, we are developing online courses on the most popular college admission topics. These will allow you to learn about a variety of issues, participate in live Q&A sessions, develop long-term plans for admission success — and all from the convenience of your computer or phone (no scheduling issues or waiting for appointments.)

What you get with each course:

  • Over 2 hours of video and audio lessons
  • Links to sources and handouts I’ve reserved for private clients in the past
  • Two Q&A sessions– attend live to ask your own questions; listen later to learn from others
  • Affordable access (enjoy months of online courses for less than a 90-min. consultation.)

February 2018 — Selecting the Right Courses

The foundation of college admission success is a strong academic record in high school. Everyone knows A’s are better than B’s or C’s, but not everyone knows how to select the right classes. This class will walk you through the course selection process so you can develop a strong 4-year plan with an appropriate level of academic challenge and a solid balance of core courses and interesting electives.

This class is perfect for all families facing the decision of what classes to register for next year. You can join the course anytime (materials are available online); we will begin lesson 1 the week of February 5.

Cost $47 (on sale in February for $20!)

(As we try out a new course delivery and online video conferencing system, we are giving you a discount on the class.)

January 2018 — What Colleges Want

Most families don’t really know what colleges want. Everyone has heard something different from teachers, friends, counselors, and the media and the unfortunate result is a lot of misinformation. We will challenge myths (required community service, lots of extracurriculars, etc.) and find out what colleges actually want. I will help you develop a plan to maximize what you have and work to fill in any gaps or weaknesses.

This class is the perfect starting point for juniors who should be building a college list and thinking ahead to preparing applications in the summer / early fall. Families of students grades 7 – 10 should use this course to develop long-term plans.

You can join the course anytime (materials are available online); we will begin lesson 1 the week of January 8.

Cost $47
