OVERWHELMED BY THE COLLEGE PROCESS?

 

I CAN HELP!

Applying to college is stressful in normal times, but now the uncertainty and ambiguity around applying to college are taking a toll on families.​ 

MGS Educational Consulting will help you navigate the complex college application process and help reduce stress.

 

MY PROCESS

MGS Educational Consulting helps you design your path post high school.  I will help you figure out who you are and where you belong, so that you thrive in college and beyond. 


My 4 step process includes:


1) Understanding you.  Through MGSed’s suite of assessments, I get to know your interests, talents, and dreams right away so that we can start designing YOUR path.

2) Finding the right colleges for you.  Now that I know you, I’ll use my rich knowledge of colleges and universities to find the places where you’d thrive most.


3) Helping you put together solid applications.  I'll create a customized process and timeline so that you can convey to colleges who you are and what you want--all while minimizing stress and angst.


4) Deciding on the best fit.  I will help you evaluate your options and choose the college that will allow you to thrive most.  I’ll keep in touch with you once you are there and help you navigate life as a college student.


I use state-of-the-art software and assessment programs (including YouScience) to manage the college application process, and I provide structure, insight, and enthusiasm throughout.  I'll put the focus where it should be--on you and your path to find the best, most engaging college for you.

 
Happy Family
 

MY FOCUS

I help students design THEIR path to college--whether it's a selective liberal arts college, a less traditional college with hands-on, experiential learning, or a larger research institution.

Areas of particular interest are:

  • ​Teens with learning differences or anxiety

  • Teens who are looking for more experiential, hands-on learning

  • Teens who are applying to visual arts programs

  • Teens who are looking to transfer from 1) a four year college to a different four year college (because it wasn't a great fit) or 2) a community college to a four year college.

MGS Educational Consulting is committed to ensuring access to higher education.  Each year I work with several 1st generation students through Yonkers Partners in Education (YPIE), ensuring their readiness for college, assisting them with their college applications, and coaching them during their first two years of college.  I also am now working with the Matchlighter's program to support low-income, high achieving students to find and apply to the right colleges.
