Welcome to my blog!

Updated: Jan 3


I have worked in education in Los Angeles since 1991. I am a former teacher, so I understand how children learn. I was an Admission Director at multiple schools, so I know the application process from the inside out and I am very familiar with schools and administrators in LA and the surrounding area. I’m also a parent, so I understand how stressful this process can be and I try to help you to eliminate as much stress as possible.


Applying to private schools can be a daunting process! There are numerous choices to be made, many steps in the process, multiple ways to do things (it is different at each school), and lots of ways to make mistakes.


There will always be more applicants than spaces available at each school, so you need to differentiate yourself (in a good way)! Schools are looking for applicant families who are a good fit and who want what they offer. This is where I can be helpful!


I can help you figure out which schools are right for your child, assist you in navigating the admission process, and most importantly guide you all the way through so that you

differentiate yourselves from the other applicants and you are the strongest applicant family possible.


In this blog, I will share information that will be helpful to you so you can cruise through the admission process. Hopefully, you can enjoy this time and use it to reflect on your own education and what you want for your child. Check back often for helpful hints and useful information about private school admission. Good luck!
