Help Your Child Get Into a Top College

I’m so glad you made the choice to come to my website. I bet you’re finding yourself and your teen at either the start or the middle of applying to college. Trust me, I know how anxious you feel, and I promise you that it doesn’t have to stay that way.
I’ve been helping families like yours for almost 20 years. This translates to thousands of teens finding, applying, and getting into their top colleges. Yet every year, I meet more and more anxious and overwhelmed teenagers and their parents, all of whom share the fear of not getting into a "good" college.
I decided that enough was enough. In working with over 5000+ teens, I realized that practically showing my students how to be authentic, discover their true interests, and master 'thinking big' was the most life changing advice I could give.
My approach results in MORE college acceptances and a more ENJOYABLE life because my students go on to colleges that truly match them as people. They also go on to lead exceptional lives.
My approach is revolutionary because it contradicts many common beliefs about college admissions. Families from all over the world, including top CEOs and Celebrities, trust me to help their kids.
And now, I want to help YOUR family.
I'm the first in my family to attend college and 3rd from my public high school to graduate from Stanford University. My mission is helping your teen become the best version of themselves, dream BIG, and get into the best college for THEM.
