Hourly Services

Any of the above Achieve services may be utilized at an hourly rate. All in-person sessions, consultant work, review, and research, emails, phone calls, and text messages will be billed. Consultant will provide an estimate of number of hours following initial consultation.

Transfer Students

As a former community college transfer counselor who assisted over 1,000 students through the transfer process, I am well-versed in choosing a transfer institution, creating strong applications and essays, and evaluating transfer options and credit evaluation. Current college students (at a 2- or 4-year college) that need assistance with transferring from one institution to another may utilize services at the hourly rate. An initial consultation is not necessary for transfer students.

Collaborative Partnerships

You may see Achieve represented in various community organizations like the North Hunterdon Education Foundation and Silver Oak Learning Centers.  I also offer group workshops with sports teams, booster clubs, and community groups.  Contact me if your group would like to partner on college planning efforts for students.

Achieve College Consulting, nor its consultants, represent that a student will gain admission to any particular college or university and neither Achieve College Consulting, nor its consultants, is responsible in any way for the student’s failure to gain such admission. Due to the ever increasing number of applicants and the declining number of admits at many institutions, no student can be assured of admission at any particular college or university, no matter how strong that student is academically. Achieve College Consulting specializes in helping students present their best to universities and, as such, the student is able to maximize his/her chances for admission.
