NORWALK, CT, February 21, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- College Admissions Coaching, LLC has officially opened its doors to Fairfield County, CT students and families as of February 20, 2013. College Admissions Coaching, LLC specializes in private college admissions consulting and offers guidance with selection of best-fit colleges, essay development/editing, completion of the Common Application, testing recommendations, interview preparation/scheduling, scholarship exploration, complete college degree program planning and much more. Interest/personality inventories are administered to help identify potential college majors and future careers as well as to enhance the quality of college applications essays.
Students meet personally with College Admissions Coaching, LLC's Owner, Thalia Thompson, M.S., I.E.C. over a prescribed time period as they navigate the often complex and highly personal college admissions process. Packages range from Express (4-session meetings) to Premium packages which span the length of one year and can be broken up into 3-month increments.
As former Director of the Paraprofessional Academy of the City University of New York for over 18 years, Thalia Thompson brings a wealth of academic planning/career counseling, college admissions, administration, and teaching experience to her new role. Her passion has consistently focused on providing exemplary student services with each student treated as a top priority. Her caseload is limited so that each client can be afforded the highest quality service.
According to Inside Higher Ed, in 2010, approximately 26% of high achieving students employed a college admissions coach and that number continues to grow as colleges/universities become more selective, the job market becomes increasingly competitive, and consumers seek value for their educational dollars. While some argue that college applications can be completed on one's own, Thalia Thompson states, "Parents and students are wholly capable of researching colleges, drafting essays, and completing the Common Application. A seasoned independent educational consultant, however, can offer invaluable insight into choosing best-fit institutions, maximizing essay/Common Application impact, capitalizing on scholarship opportunities, etc. and providing services in an inspirational and non-conditional manner."
Even at the most prestigious private or public high school, individualized college admissions consulting cannot be afforded every student. There simply aren't enough hours in the day and the caseload is too great! Private college admissions consulting offers students and families access to seasoned professionals who are able to work intensively and personally with students over a specified time period.
Spring is swiftly approaching and, with it, wonderful opportunities to schedule college visits/interviews for rising juniors and seniors. NOW is the time to contemplate college admissions goals and secure expert guidance regarding high school coursework selection, extracurricular activity participation, and exam preparation/scheduling. NOW is the time to establish critical time lines prior to the rush of college admissions season this fall. Getting a head start on the college admissions process can alleviate undue stress during an already hectic fall semester. Secure a private college admissions consultant today while appointments are still available.
