WHY HIRE AN EDUCATIONAL CONSULTANT?
Finding Your Story
The college admissions process can be intimidating – the search for just the right school, the parts and pieces required for each school’s unique admissions process, and managing all of it in a timely fashion is overwhelming for busy students and families. Even more importantly, however, is knowing exactly how to market yourself as an attractive candidate. Sure, you have the scores and the GPA, but those are just two components of how most colleges evaluate candidates. In a increasingly competitive market, students need to also communicate the “intangibles” that set them apart from the masses.
THAT’S WHERE I COME IN!
My years of expertise as a writing instructor gives me the ability to objectively examine your unique abilities and personality and develop concepts, structures, and content that will make you and your personal statement stand out in a crowded academic world. This ensures that you engage admissions audiences and showcase yourself in the best way possible. Together, we will get all of this done – and more! So let’s get started!
Straight from the Source
Your college essay is undoubtedly one of the most important papers you will write—it can also be the most frustrating. I needed someone to guide my writing and Lane was the perfect solution. She was able to tap into some of my most personal experiences and make me feel comfortable and inspired to write about them. Through our sessions we were able to make my essay concise, direct, and mature—while still maintaining its personal nature. Together we were able to cultivate a good essay into a great one. You’re applying against hundreds to thousands of students and have only 500 words to write something memorable. Lane is exceptional at discovering and building on your strengths to show your dream school who you are and why you are the student for them. I was academically accepted into all nine schools I applied to and am attending my dream school in the fall—trust me, it’s worth it!

You were such a vital part of my application process. I had my own story and my own tools, but you showed me how to put the two together to best represent myself to colleges in the best possible way. You guided me through much more than simply helping with the essays; you guided me to a path of reflection and growth. Through this, I was able to submit an honest and personable application of who I am both as a student and person, which I truly believe helped me get into my dream school. Thank you for all you have done!

Lane was a tremendous help, not only when it came to the nitty-gritty paperwork side of applying to college, but in finding my voice in admissions essays and exploring creative ways to express myself to the schools I applied to. Lane was extremely attentive and patient with me and always willing to help conjure up new ideas and help improve old ones. It was very helpful to me and to my family to have Lane guiding us through the admissions process and I truly cannot recommend her enough!

You were probably the best thing that happened to my college application process. Without you, I would have been hopelessly lost. And I wouldn't have been going to my number one school choice without you!
