The students who seek Andrea’s assistance run the full gamut from those with A+ Honors to struggling C students. Her success comes from her skill in helping each individual find the best match. Honest, realistic information helps the client navigate the complicated process. Each student is provided the guidance, encouragement, support and cheerleading necessary to traverse the landscape. For college counseling, some families need to touch base as early as freshmen year, others are not ready for the necessary conversations until junior year. Still others need reassurance picking courses, selecting activities, and finding appropriate summer opportunities all along the way. Similar needs exist at any level of the school or program selection process, but the key is the counseling piece that goes with it. Coaching students and supporting parents is the key to success.
