All of our counselors and tutors at this time come from the Ivy League college consortium, comprised of Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Brown, and the University of Pennsylvania, as well as other elite institutions such as Haverford College.

We are available to meet both in-person and over video chat services such as Skype and FaceTime, where we use online whiteboards to create an effective and intimate mentorship connection.
