Crane College Consulting

Let me make the college application process fun and successful for your student rather than anxiety-inducing!

My letter to parents

Dear parents and prospective students,

My goal is to change the college application and admission process from one wrought with pressure and anxiety to one of self-discovery, ease, and an excitement for the future for your child. There are nearly 4,000 colleges and universities in the US alone, each offering its own unique character, philosophy and experience. I will help your student to figure out what they are looking for in a post-secondary school experience and prepare a list of colleges and universities that accurately reflects them and offers them a range of likely acceptance. Furthermore, I will work closely with them on preparing all aspects of their application until the final submitted product is one that they are proud of and increases their odds of getting in to more challenging, rigorous and competitive colleges and universities.

I have 20 years of experience as a high school teacher at top institutions in the Boston area. I develop strong relationships with my students characterized by trust, respect, and mutual enjoyment of each others’ company. I have seen two of my own children through the college application and admission process and have a third child beginning the process. I have spent countless hours researching all aspects of the process and have developed a solid curriculum that includes exercises that will help your student to better understand themselves; their values, what brings them joy, who they are. These fundamental exercises will provide them with a strong foundation to write a stand-out personal statement. My educational background, my hours of research into what sets an application essay apart from the others, and my twenty years of editing student work will help me to polish their personal statement essay until it gleams. To further my professional development in the field of college admissions consulting, I have become an associate member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA) and have received a professional certificate from National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) in College Admissions Emerging Leaders.
