“We are thrilled to be working with Ellen as we navigate this complicated process with our high school junior. Our daughter feels very comfortable communicating with Ellen on issues that are arising on a regular basis as we start to make decisions on location, school size, testing, curriculum, etc. Ellen is a great advocate who obviously understands all the ins and outs of making the right college decision.”
“I’ve come to rely on Ellen’s advice through many educational decisions involving my six children. She’s informed, calm, and always helps us see all sides of a decision.”

“I have known Ellen for over twenty years. She is the ultimate professional with the highest integrity and an impeccable reputation. I know she will treat her students with the same intelligence, compassion and diligence that she has brought to her clients during her successful 35 year legal practice in New York.”
“As a parent of two rising student athletes, I have asked Ellen’s opinion on curriculum, extracurricular activities, standardized testing and other important topics. She always has the most up to date information and has a keen understanding of what it takes to guide a healthy, well-rounded student through this process.”

“I relied on Ellen’s advice and expertise several times as we navigated the admissions process with our son. I especially appreciated her excellent writing and editing skills and her ability to connect real life experiences with the college application process. I would highly recommend her services to anyone.”

“Of course, I’m biased but if I had not had Your College Coach in my corner when I was applying to colleges, I certainly would not have anywhere near the unbelievable college experience that I have had. Thanks to her encouragement and dedication to my application process, I was accepted to my dream school early decision, have had a world class education, and unbelievable career opportunities are coming true for me. She is your number one fan and will do anything to make your goals a reality.”
