Why I do what I do

Why I do what I do

Last weekend I was fortunate to be one of the presenters at a college access workshop presented by Wonderworks, an enrichment program sponsored by Rice and the University of Houston. The pre-written text of my talk, called “Temporary Insanity: College Admission, American Style” is below. I welcome your comments and questions!

My talk with seniors

My talk with seniors

Last week I had a chance to go over to my neighborhood high school and talk with juniors and seniors in their International Baccalaureate program. The students sent three questions ahead of the visit, and I had a chance to respond. I'm repeating the questions and answers here, because I think these are pretty common questions for college-bound students.

If you have other questions, leave them in the comments or email me. I'd love to talk about them!

I offer a six-session, one-on-one coaching course for a limited number of students. Each session has a different focus and requires about an hour of homework before our 45-60 minute meeting. We can meet in person if you're in the Houston area, or we can meet over the phone or through a video conference. It's made for students in the 10th or 11th grade. 

I can also do a three-hour workshop with a group as small as three people or a class as big as 30. It essentially takes students through the first half of the coaching course, but in a slightly less personalized way.

If you'd like me to give a 30 or 45 minute presentation on my approach to college admissions, I can do that. This is made for PTAs or other groups of adults.

Because each workshop or presentation is tailored to your needs, and because getting to different places is more or less expensive, I don't have set prices published. But feel free to contact me for more details or a proposal.
