Why hire an Independent Educational Consultant?


  • Is your student organized, self-disciplined, self-motivated and very independent?

  • Does your student's high school college counselor offer personal attention to their students?

  • Is your student (and you!) overwhelmed by the application process especially with all of the details that need to be taken care of?

  • Do you have the time and the expertise to help your student in the college application process? (i.e. the process has changed a lot since your college days!)

  • Are you confused about the financial aid process but need it so that your student can attend college?

If you identify with these concerns, then what you need is an Independent Educational Consultant. Independent Educational Consultants or IECs are private educational consultants that help find the right college or university for your student. IECs:

  • Are insiders about the college admission process and can see the fit between the student and the school.

  • Offer individualized one-on-one private consulting something that for high school counselors is sometimes very difficult to do.

  • Know the schools either through our visits to the colleges and universities and/or our meetings with admission representatives.

  • Belong to professional associations and attend professional conferences or training workshops to keep up-to-date with regional and national trends and changes in the law.

  • Keep ethical guidelines for private counseling.

Lastly, sometimes your student may have only one chance to get into their school of choice especially those who want to do Early Decision or Early Action or those needing financial aid. Wouldn't you want to give your student their best shot in the process?

A Great Future Starts With IvyWay!

I can't say enough wonderful things about our college counseling experience. The individualized attention, the high level of organization and follow up, and the unrelenting support made all the difference in my daughter's application process. Her guidance reduced a large amount of stress for us as parents and she is clearly extremely knowledgable and experienced. My daughter clicked with her and felt that she had a trusted and caring consultant in every step of the way. We had a fantastic experience and I highly highly highly recommend her!!

Many thanks for all of your help in this process! I would never have been able to offer all of the counseling that you offered to my daughter during this process. I was right next to her when she received her acceptance notice! What great news! We are super happy!
