Your College Adviser
About this pro
What makes us different is that our biggest emphasis is on college advising. We believe that good advice is the key to success in a students education, career, and overall well-being. YCA only hires those rare and skilled individuals who can act as both advisers and tutors. So, why is college advising such a big deal? Your College Adviser was started with the belief that college advising has the potential to change the course of education as we know it. How often have we lamented to ourselves, If only I knew about this program or that opportunity, things couldve been different.? Well, that is exactly what we want to avoid. Our mission is keep you informed, on track, ..all while making it affordable and worthwhile. One of the greatest joy of any adviser is watching his or her students succeed.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We charge $70 an hour for in-person. We also offer a 10 hours for $650 package. Most importantly, I want to work with the budget of families. You are paying for expert advice but it shouldn't break the bank!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Our initial meeting is an information packed session filled with a lot of Q&A. We will go over your transcripts, your extracurricular activities, why you want to go to college, and which college would be the best bet for you. I also answer questions concerning financial aid, early decision vs early action, and how to best approach the application.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a UCI Scholarship Reader so I know what top-notch universities are looking for in their candidates. You'd be surprised that it isn't all about the grades and scores. I also have been a college counselor for five years and got my College Counseling Certificate through UCLA.
