A Parent’s Point-of-View

“You can go on and see what your child’s been doing and keep track of what’s happening. I think it is beneficial to the independent education consultant to have parents involved even if they are just quietly watching from the background. It makes the experience just that much more valuable.” — Susan

Finding the Best

To find the best "fit" college, students must dedicate time and energy to self-assessment, their situations, and their personal and professional goals—and then identify schools that best meet their needs.

The average student-to-guidance counselor ratio is 450 to 1.

Today’s college admissions are not just centered around grades and standardized test scores, but rather a “holistic approach” is used in the selection process.

Academic rigor, intellectual curiosity, depth in activities lists, and a commitment to learning are all significant factors.

Strong college essays that demonstrate something about character, values, and life that align with the culture and values of an institution offer a compelling edge.

Thank you for all your help! Life is so busy for our family, we couldn’t begin to think about trying to guide our son through this crazy process.

You have been a life saver! My wife and I would be fighting. Thank you, Dr. Tucker for meeting us where we are at and providing such high-quality consultation. We now feel confident that [our daughter] is on right track for her future.
