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 private college admissions coach 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, a documentary short that screened at juried film festivals both in the U.S. and abroad and won an award for excellence at the Berkeley Video and Film Festival (2002).  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, she and her family live in New York City.
