There are things we all share in common at College Coach: a interest for education, a love associated with books, professional admissions experience , a perhaps-too-nerdy curiosity about college visits . But despite all the things we have in common, there are many characteristics that make us distinctive from one another. As a newer member of the particular team, I’ve enjoyed getting to know the particular subtle differences in my colleagues’ methods to essay reviews, their philosophies upon college admission, and of course, their passions outside of work. As you work with all of us to find an educational consultant that best fits your needs or the needs of your child, we will help you consider the personality and working styles that will bring out the best in you or even your student.
Since classes have ended for many students around the country, we wanted to take the time to (re)introduce ourselves to you. Each Thursday this month, we’ll be profiling a different member of our team of educational consultants here at College Coach by means of our new “Get to Know an Educator” series.
Drop in to see what we’re reading, where we went to school, or even how we engage students throughout their particular college admissions processes. You’ll learn whose writing style meshes well with yours, what we think makes the ideal college essay, and which recommendations we would have given our younger selves if we could have had a term with them. By the end of the summer, you will probably find that you’ve identified a great match to help you or your child prepare those college applications. We look forward to meeting you, too.
