College Counseling Program
We provide a unique, two-step approach blending classroom and 1-on-1 support through the entire college admissions process.
Our program helps students stay organized, stay productive, and even enjoy the process of applying to college. Once you enroll, we meet with you individually to assess your student profile and make a strong college list. The 2018 program then begins officially on July 30th with a four-week writing workshop that teaches students how to write for college admissions. Each class starts with a lecture based on Serena and Alex's many college admissions insights. After lecture, we guide a concentrated writing and revision workshop in a supportive, creative environment.
UC Applications are completed by the end of the workshop, and Common Application materials are drafted and ready for 1-on-1 revision following the course.

After the workshop, we provide 1-on-1 support (Skype, phone, or in-person) until each student's final admissions deadline.
These sessions are to provide support in polishing all written material and customizing student responses for each school. This has been a wonderful experience both for our students and for us as we help students define their educational goals more precisely to create winning supplemental essays.
Our college program is highly personalized, so we have very limited spots. There are ten students per instructor. Please call Alex at 510-766-1189 to hold a seat in our course.
