I am an educator and writer with extensive experience . . .
THERE ARE MANY WAYS I CAN HELP YOU:
I am an independent counselor whose clients have recently received offers of admission to the most selective colleges and universities in the US. I have taught in a variety of venues: high school, college, and lifelong learning. I have a decade of experience in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, reviewing thousands of applications each year. My major responsibility was being in charge of international applications.
But the part of my job I enjoyed most was meeting individual students, either at their schools or when they came to visit the campus. Working with individual students is at the heart of my counseling practice.
Then I worked in New York City for another decade, this time as a college counselor, primarily at the United Nations International School. Also, for many years I contributed a column, "Ask the College Counselor," at www.insideschools.org where I answered readers' questions about the college application process. I have contributed my expertise to programs for underrepresented urban students and for new speakers of English.
