Expert guidance through the admissions journey  


I am an admissions expert who helps students to research schools, identify their own best traits, submit successful school applications, and interview with confidence through private coaching and self-paced videos.

“Our daughter got into all four of the schools she applied to even though there were over 600 applicants for a few open spots at her dream school.

The surprise essay prompt that the Admissions person gave her was one of the ones that you told her that she might expect ahead of time so she was totally prepared because of your help. We can‚Äôt thank you enough for all your help. Thank you!!‚ÄĚ

"My son enjoyed working with Dr. Nathan. He proactively communicated to understand and set expectations, prepared before each session, gave excellent guidance and was friendly and a great coach for my son during the application process. He also managed time brilliantly and took extra effort to make sure all our questions were addressed.

My son got admits from all three schools. Thanks again for your help in the process!

Thank you for all your help and we will¬†reach out to you for more help as he¬†goes through his high school years!‚ÄĚ
