My Philosophy –

STudent Centered College Admissions Planning

My educational philosophy is based on thirty years of experience guiding thousands of young adults, emphasizing guided discovery resulting in intrinsically motivated students. I aim to build a long-term partnership with each student often beginning as early as the end of middle school. 

It is indeed never too early to begin taking steps to ensure you have a long-term strategic education and college admissions plan fostering a love of learning, solid time management skills and a directed path towards the undergraduate experience.

As an experienced college advisor, all potential clients begin with a Strategic Educational and College Admissions Planning Assessment. I look forward to spending quality time with your family to provide you with an overview of the College Planning process and a detailed personalized Educational and College Admissions Assessment. Let’s discuss the unique steps your student might consider to realize their educational, career and personal goals. Are you ready to begin?

Academic and College Application Success: EXPLORE AND DISCOVER

If you want to minimize the stress associated with both the undergraduate and graduate college application processes (and even your career search), create your Educational and College Admissions Plan as early as 8th grade! Doing so entails carefully selecting classes and extracurricular pursuits along with a plan that emphasizes ongoing hands-on activities to encourage academic and personal exploration, preparing students for success in high school and beyond.

Don’t follow the crowd nor march through middle and high school without a smile! BE INSPIRED!!

What is your student passionate about?
Now is the time for discovery!

Leverage my experience and allow me to assist you with your Educational and College Admissions plans to potentially include formal and informal extracurricular activities, personal readings, internships, impactful volunteer opportunities that connect you with your community, or summer programs to discover more about the types of questions and issues that resonate, inspire deeper discovery and bring joy and personal meaning!

A Strategic Educational and College Admissions Plan includes a curriculum mapping of challenging, relevant and manageable courses. The plan must also balance academic experiences with meaningful student selected extracurricular activities resulting in confident, mature, and self-directed young adults.  Do you have a COLLEGE PLAN?

A typical college admissions consultant can provide you with “off-the-rack” answers to your questions about high-school curriculum planning (AP, AICE or IB courses?), financial aid eligiblity (and how to complete your FAFSA?), submitting your Common Application and writing your college essays. Applying her three decades of university experience, Professor Emeritus Bonnie R. Rabin, Ph.D. will provide expert personalized guidance.

Leveraging my extensive working knowledge of colleges and universities and their undergraduate and graduate curricula and degree requirements across all majors, let’s work together to  create your personalized educational and college admissions plan.

It’s not too early (Freshman) or too late (Seniors) to set goals, build solid time management and learning strategies and discover a hidden academic strength.
