FAQs

Why should I hire an Educational Consultant?

An Educational Consultant is knowledgeable about the unique programs and cultures of schools in all systems.

SAVE TIME AND ENERGY.  An Educational Consultant understands a child’s unique strengths and needs by reading various reports, work samples, and by meeting your child. She can provide insight into what your child needs to be happy and successful at school.  An Educational Consultant can help you match the right school with your child’s needs and interests, and your family’s budget and values.

AVOID STRESS AND ANXIETY. Parents may feel overwhelmed and stressed at the prospect of finding the best fit school or program for their child. Having the support of a knowledgeable and experienced professional during academic challenges and/or transitions, parents will find the decision process easier, smoother, and less stressful.
There is growing competition to get into schools and specialized programs these days. It’s tougher than ever!  An Educational Consultant can assist a child during the applications process, every step of the way: during the entrance exams, interview process, and application and essay completion.

FEEL CONFIDENT ABOUT YOUR CHOICES. Many parents may not know all of the options that are available for their children, or they may not know how to navigate the school system during a time of struggle or crisis. An Educational Consultant can provide support and guidance.
