Hourly services are best for students who are self-starters, but want guidance in specific areas, like essay coaching or military academy applications.
They can also be a great choice for homeschool families who need help documenting homeschool academic experiences for college applications.

About Lisa

I'm Lisa Rielage. As an Independent Educational Consultant, I work directly with high school students and their families to help them identify colleges that are good fits for them.

Together, we consider their academic goals and the college atmosphere they want, but also keep in mind the family budget and college admissions selectivity. 

As senior year approaches, I'm right there offering guidance on college application and essays.
