Aspire College Admissions Planning & Prep

Comments

I'm looking forward to starting with a new class of Aspire students in my small-group SAT/ACT tutoring this summer! The summer after sophomore year is the perfect time to start my college planning program. So put together a group of 2-4 of your friends and give me a call! I still have room for several more groups. Aspire students have increased their SAT scores by as much as 370 points!!! And they have been accepted to a diverse range of colleges with substantial scholarships. Most importantly, my students have enjoyed and grown during the process. Call today!
Congratulations to this year's Lilly Scholarship finalists from Monroe County!

Summer is a great time for current juniors to take either the SAT or ACT one last time because you will be much better rested than during the school year, which hopefully translates to sharper focus and endurance for these lengthy tests!

Ok, a little bit of self promotion ... for those of you who don’t know, I’m also a Realtor in Bloomington and have been for 21 years. Here is a home I just listed that is only one block south of IU campus. Might be a good fit if your children are attending or plan to attend IU! Interest rates are still incredibly low!

For current high school juniors who want to get a jump on their college applications — the Common App just announced the essay prompts for next year. And for the first time in years, the prompts have changed with the addition of a prompt about gratitude. What a great idea! The optional essay about how COVID-19 has affected you remains unchanged. I provide expert essay writing guidance and detailed, specific assistance to any student, not just those in my SAT/ACT prep program. Contact me soon for a free consultation!

High School Grades Could Be Worth $100,000. Time to Tell Your Child?

Keep in mind that this “merit aid”, though very helpful, usually only covers anywhere from roughly 5 to 50% of the total annual cost of attendance, leaving a significant amount you still have to pay yourselves.

Clarification ... the SAT should still be taken, just not the optional essay!
