Meet Sylvia

I help guide your student through the college search and application process so that it’s simple, streamlined and successful!

Helping You Find The “Right” College

As an experienced college counselor and essay- writing coach, I understand the importance of finding a college that is the right fit for each student. I assist students and families in evaluating colleges across various aspects to create a list of schools that best align with their academic, social, and financial requirements. ​

Setting Your Student Up For Success

My expertise of education has allowed me to create a unique approach to helping college-bound students reach their goals. I provide valuable guidance and support while encouraging students to take ownership of their college journey. With my knowledge, skill, and commitment to each student's success, I am confident our work together will open the door to a bright future.

Simplifying The Process

I understand that the college admission process can be overwhelming for many families. That is why my clients receive personalized attention and assistance from the very beginning. I provide resources to help families simplify and streamline the college search and application process.

And I Love To Make It Fun!

I’ve been a California girl my whole life, growing up in Los Angeles before moving to San Diego. I love spending time with my family, walking the dog, hitting the gym, going to concerts, reading, and traveling all over the globe. Oh, and I also love sleep. And avocados.

Education & Credentials

I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Communication Studies from  UCLA and a Certificate in Educational Consulting from the University of California, Irvine. I am also a professional member of Independent Educational Consultants Association.

“Sylvia was very helpful with my entire college application process. She helped me stay on track which alleviated some of the stress of applications. She was someone I knew would give honest and helpful feedback on my work, and it’s always awesome to have someone there who is also rooting for your success.”
