Welcome to the website
for families who need to make educating themselves more affordable and more valuable - with as little conflict of interest
The information on this site has been acquired from spending
over ten thousand hours working one on one with students and their families. Staying independent has let me work with
students of many ages and multiple school systems without having to consider politics or greed. Because my work off
the internet keeps me very busy and is a boatload of fun, I have created this site with some general information to enable
parents, other caregivers and mature teens help themselves and those they care about. Please be aware there are no guarantees.
Thank you ahead of time for tolerating a few imperfections and my wacky sense of humor.
The world changed. There is a new reality. People who can't protect themselves and their families from
the callous choices of other people have some big challenges. The good news is if you learn the right skills, you can
and have a lot of fun doing it, too.
With that in mind, here are a couple questions to ask yourself.
How will you tell which colleges (or other entities) actually care about you and which will just take your money even if it
is not appropriate?
How will you tell which college ratings organizations
know what they are talking about and which just do it because that is what makes them money? (How will you know which people's
opinions actually have any credibility?)
