I love working with teens and parents on the college admissions process!  That work can begin as early as grade nine.  My goals are simple:

  • I want kids to land at the schools that fit them best.
  • I want them to navigate the admissions process with as much success and as little stress as possible.
  • Finally, I want the tension that sometimes grows between parents and kids during the college process to evaporate for my clients.

Please reach out to schedule a complimentary 20-minute telephone consultation if you want to explore working with me.  I have consulted with clients all over the country.  My formal bio follows below:

An award-winning educator, Eva has worked in college admissions on both sides of the desk:  as an undergraduate admissions officer at Yale University – her alma mater – and as a teacher, school administrator, and independent college admissions counselor supporting students and families through the process. She is the author of The Thinking Parent’s Guide to College Admissions: The Step-by-Step Program to Get Kids into the Schools of Their Dreams (Penguin Books, 2006) and the executive producer of Turusma: A Young Man’s Journey to College, an award-winning documentary short that screened at juried film festivals both in the U.S. and abroad. Eva has taught at the high school and college levels, served as a school leader, and consulted on educational interventions and policy for public and private organizations around the country. She has appeared as a guest expert on education in numerous media outlets (including NBC’s Weekend Today). Eva graduated from Yale University with a Bachelor of Arts in French Studies and from the Harvard Kennedy School with a Master’s in Public Policy. She is currently seeking her doctorate in Educational Psychology. A native New Yorker and an empty nester, she divides her time between Washington, D.C., and New York City.
