Concierge Coaching
Comprehensive Support & Guidance

Many students benefit from a comprehensive consultant to see them regularly throughout high school and prepare them for their eventual admission and scholarship efforts. These clients receive step by step assistance , meetings each semester to review progress and scheduling, help completing college applications, interview preparation, financial aid application and appeals and all other steps leading to college.

Concierge clients also receive unlimited access to all workshops at no extra charge, including Interview Skills, Essay Writing for Admissions and College Bound Basics.

A great solution for students and families who want to make sure they do the right things every step of the way! A popular option for home school families who want the benefit of a private guidance counselor. During the “crunch times” of deadlines, concierge clients are given priority scheduling for all of their needs, a valuable benefit during the hectic application and scholarship season.

While the College Prep Coaching session introduces parents and students to what they need to do to navigate college admissions & scholarships, Concierge Services takes things to a whole new level. Available for students in 9th—12th grades.

To accommodate various levels of need, a variety of affordable packages are available.

All concierge clients receive priority booking for all meetings/consultations during the hectic application season. Individual hourly clients will be accommodated after concierge clients have been booked.

If you are interested in finding out if Ms. Hartley has room for more concierge students, since she is cautious to not over-commit, please contact her by phone or email to discuss your student’s specific needs.
