Annual Membership to Coach: Mapping the Road to Success

The average student usually plans too late and too little for one’s career
path. Preparing for higher education in the last year of current schooling is
too late and may be too little for those with professional aspirations.
Ideally, planning should begin in freshman year of high school for college
admissions and in the freshman year of college for graduate school admissions.

    Consulting in preparation for higher education and career:

  • Live “getting to know your profile” strategy session with advice on academic and career path
  • For those who are undecided in career path, this would be a great time to explore different career options that would best suit the student’s personality, interests, and abilities
  • For those who are determined to pursue a specific career, this would be time to judiciously select courses that highlight strengths in certain subjects in preparation for college and specialty (graduate) school applications
  • Evaluation of school transcript and troubleshooting, e.g. link to commercial prep courses and private tutors after personalized selection for quality to fortify weaknesses. We offer to negotiate discounts with private tutors (e.g. standardized exams such as SAT, MCAT, LSAT, GMAT, high school prep courses, college courses, basic science classes).
  • Establishing optimal time management for becoming an effective student
  • Strategic use of extracurricular time (weekends, evenings, and summers) to engage in meaningful and constructive (while still fun and interesting) activities
  • Suggestions for summer programs, weekend programs, and other extracurricular programs that would enhance the student’s overall non-academic profile on admissions applications
  • Connections to volunteer opportunities, internships, and research opportunities
  • Building resume for a stronger profile, personal growth, and brighter future
  • Start the admissions process early by practicing essay writing skills
  • Building skills in proper professional etiquette, public speaking, interacting with working professionals in “the real world”
  • Grooming the student for maturity (mature decision making and social interactions)
  • Coping with stress (challenging courses, standardized exam preparation, application process, etc.)
  • Unlimited general advice (by email) that is always prompt and responsive
  • Always personalized, customized attention
