If you are considering our Gold or Platinum Package, we recommend you meet with us at least 9 months before your child is scheduled to enroll in school. There are cases where we can get everything done that we need to accomplish in less than six months, but we will have to get to work [...]

Yes, we love face-to-face and Skype meetings. Most clients we work with use a combination of face-to-face meetings, Skype and phone conferences. Skype is the most popular option, but we also use other forms of videoconferencing. Even some of our local clients prefer Skype in order to save time driving.

It is often appropriate for parents of students in the fifth and sixth grade to begin utilizing our services in preparation for high school.

I live in another country but I am still interested in your services. Do you work with students who live outside of the U.S.?
