Toby's Strategy for Success

Choosing a college can be a nerve-wracking experience for both student and parents. But it doesnít have to be.

A professional educational consultant specializing in college counseling, Toby Waldorf offers students and families the guidance, focus, and organization they need to help them navigate this complex process. Her creative approach to helping students discover their own passions combined with her systematic approach to preparing for, selecting, and applying to colleges best suited for them have resulted in many hundreds of successful, happily placed and directed young adults.

An Advocate for Individuality
In applying her highly individualized approach, Toby first meets with the student and parents. Through interviews and evaluations, she determines each studentís strengths, interests, and aspirations. This evaluation process helps students crystallize their own self-discovery and visualize their future roles in the world. After a careful student assessment, which includes a review of transcripts and test scores, Toby recommends test preparation and testing dates. She then researches and compiles a tailored list of colleges to best suit the studentís personality.

In short, Toby works directly with families to demystify the college administration process, providing a clear strategy that outlines a step-by-step approach to the four stages of college selection: student evaluation, preparation, application building, and admissions.
