Services (short description)

I love teaching. To feed this passion, I use the college admissions process as a vehicle to provide memorable and formative experiences for high school students. My ultimate goal is to teach students about themselves and impart critical life skills that will last a lifetime. If they happen to get accepted into their dream college along the way – that’s icing on the cake.

PREPWELL ACADEMY ONLINE (100% online mentoring)

Inside PrepWell Academy’s online program, I teach students everything they need to know about the college admissions process in a series of expertly-timed, weekly training videos starting in 9th/10th grade and continuing through 12th grade [Note: this program can only be joined in 9th or 10th grade].

There are four options based on the needs of the student and family ($12.95 - $14.95 per month):

  • Pathway – for students who aspire to attend college
  • Ivy – for students who aspire to attend an Ivy League or equivalent college
  • Military – for students who aspire to attend a military service academy or earn an ROTC scholarship
  • Athlete – for students who want to play sports in college or use their skill as leverage to get into college
