Our Services

Application Mentor Package

The majority of our students opt for a package in which we mentor the student through the entire process. This package includes the Initial Consultation, Personalized College List and Essay Writing Assistance.

College Essay Writing Assistance

If a high school senior only wants help on the essay portion of his or her application, College Bound Mentor will work with the student in person, by phone, by Skype® or by e-mail at an hourly rate.

Grad School & Career Assistance

Many of our clients return to us once they are in college to help craft their paths to internships, graduate school, and jobs. We also work with students on crafting the personal statement for graduate school.

Why Choose College Bound Mentor

College is the first educational choice that most students make for themselves. Our goal is to make each stage of the application process an enjoyable experience. We start with self-assessment to understand who you are and what makes you excited, interested, and unique. Next, we will brainstorm with you about college planning in the high school years: how to choose community service, courses, extracurricular or summer activities that align with your innate strengths and passions. Then we develop a personalized plan focused on college selection, applications, financial considerations, and acceptance.

College visits are essential because in talking with students and Admissions Counselors, we get a better idea of what types of students will succeed there and how best to mentor you through the process.

Hear From Our Students & Their Parents

  • Lisa was terrific and so supportive throughout every step of the college application process. She is very insightful and immediately saw my children’s strengths after our first meeting and how best to present their “story” in their applications. She had great advice on how to further develop and strengthen their “story” during Junior year. She knows what the admissions officers are looking for in the essays and had great suggestions on how to improve the essays so that the reader could really understand and get to know my children through their essays. She is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the college application process as well as what colleges are looking for in their applicants. This made the college application process much more manageable!
