College Choices or Choice Lectures

Work with an educator with extensive experience

My clients have received offers of admission to the most selective colleges and universities in the US. I am an independent educational consultant, with extensive teaching experience in high school, college, and lifelong learning. I worked at UNC-Chapel Hill for 10 years, where I was in charge of counselor relations and all international applicants. Then I worked for 11 years in NYC, mostly at the UN International School. My basic fee is $350 for a 2-hour consultation and a follow-up session analyzing the student’s essay. Additional hours are $125 each. Most students need only a couple of hours‘ assistance.

Choice Lectures on a variety of subjects

As an accomplished public speaker, I have been able to provide entertaining and informative talks on many topics. Each one accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation, and is about an hour in length - perfect for Zooming. 


The most popular are:

American Women in 19th Century England

American Women on the British Stage

The Dreyfus Affair and Its Aftermath

Adeline Oppenheim Guimard

More about college counseling


The part of my work I enjoy most is meeting with students; working with individuals is at the heart of my counseling practice.

“Rankings” are unreliable.

The college process, while challenging, is actually very manageable IF approached in an organized and informed fashion.

I help students map out a rational plan.
