Dr. Mae's College and Educational Planning Process

Dr. Mae's College Planning is a process of exploration, innovation, and increasing self-awareness that guides the student through effective test preparation and the entire application process, including the writing of a compelling personal statement or essay.



College Planning begins by meeting with the family to discuss grades, interests, goals, and how to finance a college education. If you are unable to meet in-person, Dr. Mae provides the same unique services worldwide via video conferencing.


We then target colleges, schedule tests, and develop a personal portfolio to help distinguish the applicant in the competitive admission process



Dr. Mae works with the student to help them write compelling personal statements and supplementary essays, initiate contact with colleges and prepare for interviews. Dr. Mae also assists the students and parents select summer programs and internships, research scholarships, and helps to organize a financial plan. When additional support is required, a well-researched team of associates is available

Dr. Mae is right by your side every step of the way and beyond.

The results speak for themselves: over 90% of students are accepted by the college of their choice.

Students with special needs planning for college have a long history of success with Dr. Mae.

Graduate School, Post-Graduate School, Gap Year and all individualized consultations are addressed with the same conscientiousness, professionalism, and confidentiality as the College Planning Process.

"There is a time in every man's education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better for worse as his portion...The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
