I welcome questions about my practice.  I offer a 20-30 minute complimentary consult 
in person, or by telephone, or on Skype.
We can start working together formally at any point during the high school years.  I like to begin with a 2+ hour in-depth meeting, typically with parents and student.  This will provide an initial assessment of the student's academic and non-academic profile and the family's broader goals 
for the college planning process.  Your initial questions can be addressed, and you can determine if if you'd like to continue working together. To continue, I offer two options:
