Boston Area College Advisors and Coaches

College advisors and coaches specialize in helping students and parents with the college application process.  Their experience can be a great help for a successful outcome.  The coaches listed here are experienced professionals and have extensive knowledge of Boston area colleges and universities.  They provide not just help in managing the application process  but also provide specific services such as help with college selection,  application review,  proofreading help with essays and in some cases college visits.  Students do not have to be located in the Boston area but can communicate with their coaches from anywhere in the world via online tools such as Skype or Facetime.

College advisors are generally not connected with any specific college or university but provide their services as independent consultants to students and parents.  Their fee varies and should be discussed before any services are provided.
