Success Story:

“Marilyn Kaufman has been an invaluable resource in our college selection and application process. From our first meeting she took a sincere interest in our son and got to know him academically and personally to help him in his college selection process. Their time together was always productive with a goal for what was to be accomplished during their next meeting. Organization and prioritization are two life skills that she has imparted to our son; two skills that took a lot of the stress out of the entire college application process.”
