When To Start
College coaching sessions should begin as soon as possible once in high school. This is the time to start thinking about what your child is looking for and what they are hoping to get out of their college experience. With transcripts, strength of curriculum, essays, test scores, and extracurricular activities all playing a vital role in the admissions decision process, it is imperative to get the right type of counseling and guidance early on. The more time a student has for coaching, the more well-rounded their high school career will be, which will allow for the best possible college list.
WHY HIRE A COACH
Obtaining guidance from a college consultant is a wise decision because your child’s career and goals are on the line. Many parents are too busy or simply don’t have the knowledge to effectively manage all the requirements needed to mold a student into a successful college candidate. A college admissions coach helps with everything from filing of applications, to essay and short answer coaching, to financial aid guidance, scholarship searches, and help with college selection. Trust your child’s future to an educated, certified and dedicated education counselor.
Why Choose Us
Bryan Pisetsky started College Knowledge because he wanted to ensure that students were getting the personal attention and professional edge they deserve when making such an important life decision. Bryan personally benefitted from an Educational Consultant in his high school years to overcome several learning differences. Bryan was in awe and inspired by how that consultant was able to match him to the school that ensured his greatest success. Now, it is Bryan’s wish to provide the same remarkable coaching assistance for the up and coming generations.
Last July, my 15-year-old said, ‘Mom, I want to graduate early!’ Her high school counselor said it was possible, so in a matter of moments she went from Junior to Senior, and I quickly realized I had no idea where to start when it came to college. Cydney liked Bryan immediately and they met weekly to prep college applications and essays. Frankly, I did very little except to meet with the Financial College Planner to fill out some paperwork. In January, she was accepted to Colorado State University to become a Criminal Psychologist! This would never have been possible without Bryan’s guidance and knowledge – we would’ve been lost in paperwork, we’d still be working on them, and she’d be irritated with me. The stress Bryan took off our family and help that he gave will stay with our family for years to come. If you have a child in high school, you need to meet with him for a free consultation. Your time will be well spent! Chrisie B.
I cannot tell you how much Bryan has helped my family with the educational planning for our son. He is a college transfer, and that process can be very tricky. With Bryan’s assistance our son was able to navigate through the bureaucracy and get his needs meet. Bryan also suggested ways for us to make him a more attractive transfer student and made recommendations for us to follow up on for financing. Without Bryan’s help we would left unprepared, uninformed and on the outside looking in. Thank you Bryan! The Pena Family
Bryan is absolutely phenomenal and his business name is so well-suited for him. My son is a junior in High School and my only regret is that we did not meet Bryan earlier! We had an immediate connection, and most importantly, my son feels such great comfort in knowing that Bryan is by his side every step of the way. From researching universities, to getting to know his students, to working hand in hand through the process – everyone needs someone like Bryan in their life!Tami B.
