I have enjoyed helping students find their dream schools since 2006.  I have an MBA in Marketing and graduate work in Counseling Psychology.  My resume includes speech writing for a US Congressman.  In addition to college counseling, I have taught writing at De Anza College where I also continue to give seminars on writing college application essays. In addition, I have given  seminars for many community groups, including the Monta Vista High School Career Center and Boy Scouts of America. I am a Block Leader for the City of Cupertino, where I have lived for over 20 years at the same address. I have coached hundreds of students with college essays and applications.

  • I have personally visited numerous colleges and universities nationwide
  • I have researched college and university admission requirements, curriculum for common majors, and campus life;  I developed an easily accessible data base of this information.
  • I have references from many past students now enrolled in Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, Cornell, Williams, Duke, Northwestern, Tufts,  UC Berkeley, and UCLA, among many others.
  • I perform all services personally on a one-to-one basis. I do not employ readers or 'help'.
