Tips to Make Applications Stand Out
Bottom line is that kids are not getting the support they need in their school to help them apply to college. I had no idea that services like this even existed until I saw Jamie written up in a magazine. I wish I knew about her years ago for my older daughter. She has made this process much easier on all of us. My kids don’t always listen to me-but they listen to her. She has a tremendous amount of knowledge around college admissions, and she is an asset to our community. –MP
Lifesaver. Jamie is a wealth of knowledge. My kids responded well to her, and it made our household much happier to have her as a resource and guide during this stressful time. –AD
We are so grateful for Jamie! We first used Jamie’s services four years ago and now working with her again for our second daughter. Jamie has become an important part of our family. She has helped us strategize coursework and create ways to help our children stand out. –TK
My wife and I interviewed four different independent educational consultants. Jamie’s level of knowledge and customized approach to how she would help my son was impressive. You get what you pay for and Jamie's advice was well worth it for my son’s happiness (and our sanity). She made the college application process much less stressful for all of us. Thanks, Jamie –BB
Kind, caring, informative, patient. Jamie has been a wonderful resource for our family. I hesitate to write this testimonial because I want to keep her all to ourselves. :-) –DC
Blown away by the knowledge Jamie has about college admissions. She leaves nothing uncovered and will guide your child step-by-step. I appreciated the fact that although the work was between Jamie and our daughter, she was always available for questions my husband and I had, and we were very much part of the process. –MW
Serving Students in Middle TN and Nationally
Nashville and the surrounding suburbs are home to many top-performing schools in Tennessee. Davidson County and Williamson County schools consistently score high on the US News and World Report annual rankings.
Despite these rankings, adequate support for providing college admission counseling is lacking for students living in Middle Tennessee. According to a U.S. Department of Education Guidance School survey, over-stretched school guidance counselors are only providing an average of 38 minutes of college admissions advice per US high school student. The American School Counselor Association (ASCA) recommends that there be no more than 250 students to each school counselor. Most recent data available for the state of Tennessee shows ratios nearing 400 students for every one counselor. As student-to-school counselor ratios continue to increase, the amount of 1:1 time spent developing a customized plan of action subsequently suffers.
Jamie's services have been provided to students attending a range of high schools in the Brentwood, Franklin, and greater Nashville communities, including Ravenwood High School, Brentwood High School, Page High School, Battleground Academy, Harding Academy, Ensworth School, Montgomery Bell Academy, University School of Nashville, Father Ryan High School, Franklin Road Academy, Harpeth Hall, Governor's Academy, Battleground Academy, Centennial High School, Renaissance High School, and others.
Jamie also works with students and families across the US.
