Our Team

Note: This page is currently under construction as we add more profiles. Thank you for your patience!

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 pride ourselves on the diversity of our expertise and our resultant ability to ensure that each student we work with is matched to the counselor that is right for them, based on similarity of background, interests, and experiences. 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.
