Working with Dr. Pamela helped our son to organize his essay-related tasks, and allowed him to take responsibility for his deadlines. Introspection is not always easy for a teenager, and we were very happy about how well his essays reflected his personality. He wrote on topics that meant something to him, allowing his voice to be heard and his viewpoints to be clearly expressed. Thanks again!

Dr. Pamela’s insight and experience were invaluable to our daughter’s college search. Because of Dr. Pamela’s ability to direct teens in a professional and intelligent manner, our daughter was able to narrow down her choices and stick to a time line. It was a wonderful experience, rather than a stressful one! We would highly recommend Dr. Pamela’s services and direction for any family!

When our granddaughter started the college process, we did not have full knowledge of the process for entering college. We decided that we needed help and guidance. After talking with a friend who had gone through the process successfully with Dr. Ellis, we decided that she had the skills that we were seeking. We are very impressed with Dr. Ellis, her company, and what they have provided for our granddaughter. With Dr. Ellis’ advice and encouragement, she was able to get the guidance, knowledge and support necessary to achieve her desire of getting into St. Mary’s College of California. Dr. Ellis was and continues to be a pleasure to work with and a large help to her, her parents and grandparents.

The Compass College Advisory Center provided my son with excellent resources to make informative choices about the colleges he was considering. The informational and guidance sessions with Dr. Ellis, helped him to be organized and to write the required essays in a timely manner. Also, the sessions regarding finances and FAFSA were insightful and beneficial. Deciding and making choices about perspective colleges can be a very stressful period for a parent. But with the Compass College Advisory Center, my experience was the complete opposite. Dr. Ellis, thank you for your expertise.

Did you know…

It takes parents over 300 hours to help their teen through the college admissions process.

Not to mention the time and energy it takes for them to plan ahead financially and seek scholarships, grants and financial aid.

The process can be simplified. Applying to college today is different than what it was even just a decade ago. I can help your employees, staff or organization leverage opportunities to help teens get into a college where they will thrive.
