West Orange, NJ, June 10, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- In its latest podcast, Top-Tier Tutoring presents an overview of a much-used phrase “college counseling.” Just what is involved with college counseling – and what is not – is explored in this podcast. To listen to the podcast, go to www.bit.ly/b4j9fV.
During the podcast, co-founder, college counselor and tutor Mike Rivera of Top-Tier Tutoring discusses the factors comprising college counseling. Not simply an application deadline reminder source, college counseling involves an in-depth review of the student’s goals, dreams and achievements. With those in mind, the student is then guided through the thousands of colleges within the United States in order to create an appropriate list of possible candidates for application. The college counselor works with the student so that tutoring needs are assessed, extracurricular and volunteer work established, essays and academic resumes created, interview skills refined and campus visits secured. The college counselor takes a holistic view of the student in order to guide him or her to the best possible college or university for his or her needs.
“With Top-Tier Tutoring’s recent offering of college counseling via Skype, we wanted to ensure parents and students were fully aware of what that term encompasses,” explains Rivera. He continues: “College counseling is not guaranteed admission into a specific school, but rather an approach to the admissions process that enables students to put their best foot forward and secure admission into the best school for them. That is why we carefully look at course selection, activities and jobs as well as grades, scores and deadlines.”
