Are you excited about the college search and application process, and are trying to figure out where to start?

Colleges want to accept students who know who are self-aware and able to communicate effectively. What used to be known as “soft” skills are now more often referred to as “essential” skills (and sometimes “interpersonal,” “power,” “professional,” and “transferable” skills). These skills are the foundation of essential communication and leadership ability, according to Forbes and the Harvard Business Review. Each session comes with assessments, notes, totally 90 minutes of follow up. I offer sessions on Critical Thinking, Communication and Interview Skills, Complex Problem Solving, Meta-Cognitive and Learning Skills, Judgement and Decision Making, Emotional Intelligence, Self-Direction and Self-Management, Social Skills, Perseverance, Literacy skills (Information, Media, Civic, Technology, Digital), Global Awareness and Social Responsibility, Growth Mindset, Adaptability and Resilience, and Empathy.

“Meeting Hillary was absolutely delightful! Not only was she a pleasure to talk to and a very well-spoken individual, but she provided insightful and helpful advice on how to navigate the tough world of college admissions- and this was in just 30 minutes! I would definitely recommend her service if you are looking for an honest and compassionate advisor who views your profile holistically, and I am looking forward to future sessions with her!"Nika T.
