This package is for your student if they are ready to commit to the college application process as they begin junior year. Such students should be ready to aim for achieving their highest standardized test scores, and be willing to complete the majority of the application process during the summer prior to senior year.
We live in a society where students feel more pressure than ever to apply to and get into elite colleges, often based on faulty thinking and erroneous information. Dr. Griswold Fine’s mission is to help clients understand that because they are unique in their talents, strengths, and learning styles, it is important to choose a college that offers programs that match their interests and provides a campus community that feels comfortable. Throughout the consulting process, Dr. Griswold Fine’s priority is to help clients identify a college that is the right fit: an environment in which students can thrive, academically. socially, and emotionally.
Dr. Griswold Fine’s ability to use educational psychology to help college bound students reach their academic and personal potentials sets her apart. Her college application process utilizes a process-oriented and a knowledge-oriented approach to help students progress through the process in a logical and informed way. Further, her unique curriculum embeds critical academic and metacognitive skills instruction, such as: academic writing, prioritizing, self-regulation, goal setting, accountability, and time management. In an effort to maximize the chances of selecting the most appropriate college setting for students, Dr. Griswold Fine uses every step of the the process to help students present their authentic selves
All packages assume that each student is unique, and brings to the table their own strengths, dreams, and goals. Based on the core belief that there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach, and that selecting a college is one of the most important decisions in a young person's life, all services are tailored to meet the individual student. At the core of this approach is the relationship; one that fosters an authentic, not canned experience; a relationship based on mutual trust and honesty.
While packages reflect that not all students are ready to approach the college application process at the same time, if you do not see the package that is right for your student, please let me know.
Finally, by limiting the number of students she works with at any given time, Dr. Griswold Fine gives clients the attention they deserve and/or require to feel supported and confident throughout the process.
