Juliet is very efficient and a pro at college counseling. She is very organized and her guidance proved valuable to go through the daunting process of college applications and essays. She helped my daughter stay on task and focused on the timeline with spreadsheets and a schedule in place.

Working with Juliet Hawk proved to be a valuable experience. She provided help with researching colleges, brainstorming for and revising college essays, and gave general tips for college preparation. She was great at understanding individualized interests and knew what information to provide us based on them. Highly recommend!

We are so grateful to have been able to work with Juliet on our son's college application process. Her expertise was instrumental in helping our son get organized and shape the important essays/statements for his numerous applications. From his first meeting, our son enjoyed working with Juliet. Her experience brought a “can do” attitude to the process. Incredible support! Many thanks.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I offer competitive rates as a formally trained, credentialed and experienced educator. Many large tutoring, test prep and college planning firms charge $200-$300 an hour, often times with young "tutors" who lack significant teaching experience and training. I have honed genuine expertise in many academic and test prep disciplines, but I continue to offer my students lower rates, a fraction of what many of my competitors charge. Let's be honest: less company overhead and fewer executive salaries yield better prices for consumers.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I offer a complimentary 15 minute phone consultation to determine my every student's comfort with online instruction, unique needs and objectives. In addition, I gather data regarding areas that require improvement in order to build a personalized program. I have an "open door" policy; should my clients have questions or concerns, I am at their service at no added cost.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    In addition to earning a BA, MA, and CA teaching credential, I have served as an educator for over 18 years as a credentialed classroom teacher, high school principal and college adviser, private tutor and PSAT/ACT/SAT test prep instructor.
