What We Offer
College Choice Counseling® provides college admission counseling services. An expert college advisor is assigned to each student. The college counselor explains the college admission process to the student. Based on an assessment of the student’s record and other factors, the expert counselor then helps the student create a college list. Finally, the college counselor helps the student create compelling applications, which includes helping them write impressive essays.
College Choice Counseling also offers tutoring. Our expert tutors are assigned according to the specific needs of the student. We provide ACT and SAT prep in addition to a wide range of academic subject tutoring for high school and college students.

Veteran teacher at Wylie E. Groves High School in Birmingham, Michigan
Barbara was the best college advisor I could've imagined who devoted an enormous amount of time to reading and reviewing every part of the college application. She is smart, dedicated, and professional in every way.
I highly recommend her!
