I am a former High School
English and Journalism teacher of ten years.
For this reason, I love the writing and
editing part of the admissions process.
As an avid reader and writer myself for my
whole life, I try to bring enthusiasm and
enjoyment to what can be stressful and
tedious to my students. Students
continually tell me that they learn so much
about writing from our work together.
I work with students of all levels to
increase their confidence as writers and to
guide them to produce work of which they are
always very proud. I love being a
teacher and counselor.
I like to operate ahead of schedule, with
clearly established deadlines structured to
each familyís needs. I ask parents to
be involved in the process in clearly
defined ways, as much as they are able.
During what can be a stressful time, I find
that careful scheduling and regular
checkpoints give my clients peace of mind.
As a confessed academic, I thoroughly enjoy
the business of finding the best college for
each student. To that end, I regularly
visit college campuses myself, and have seen
over 200 campuses to date.
