Maybe you (the parent) didn’t go to college in the US and are unfamiliar with the process. Maybe you’re a family where both parents work (or a single parent household working full-time) and just need some help with managing the deadlines and tasks. Maybe you don’t enjoy doing research and would like some help finding the information you need. Maybe you simply need someone with less emotional attachment to help be the task-master! We can work together to build a package that fits your needs and your budget, or you can select from one of the following options:
We can meet periodically or you can simply have access to me via email, text, or phone for questions that come up: purchase 1 or more hours of consultation at a time. This is an excellent choice for freshmen and sophomores as well as students who have specific needs and are not seeking help with the overall process. If you later decide to pay for a package, your initial hours will be applied to that cost. Hourly Rate: $75
