Educational Advising and College Admission Counseling

A Team Approach

At Marks Education, we are a team through and through. Every dedicated counselor, tutor, and essay specialist you work with is committed to the active practice of sharing information. While college admission is competitive, our team thrives on collaboration.

No matter which counselor you work with face-to-face, you also will be receiving the knowledge, guidance, and up-to-the-moment data tracking that every member of the team brings to the table. Some of us are former admissions officers. Some of us are former teachers. All of us are devoted to sharing our years of collective wisdom and experience to help each individual student find their voice and put their best, most authentic self into their applications.

A Tailored Approach

We know there is no such thing as “one size fits all” (especially when it comes to the college admissions process), which is why we offer one-on-one admission counseling and educational advising, customized to suit the needs of each student and family. From a single hourly session to a year-long package, we work with our clients to make an effective, efficient plan for their academic success and long-term educational goals.
