College Consulting and Readiness Services with Oxford Tutoring

With college applications due in November, it is important to make sure that you are presenting your best self to the college of your dreams. This where Oxford Tutoring can help!  We have helped our students get into UCLA, UCI, USC, UC Berkley, UCSD, UCB and more.  Come receive college consulting services in any of the following areas:

Planning

This is an ideal stage for 8th grade and up.  With competition for top colleges as fierce as they are, it is never too early to start planning your high school pathway.  This includes assistance in deciding which high school classes to take, what extracurricular activities to participate in, and what volunteer work to choose.

Advising

Once you are on the college-bound road, there are difficult decisions that crop up along the way.  For example, if you are struggling with an AP class and do not believe you are going to pass the test, should you drop it or stick it out?  This is where our college consulting services can help.  Receive advising for GPA management, course evaluation, and difficult decisions.

Applying

The application is your introduction, the first impression you make on your application reader.  And we all know that first impressions are hard to change, which is why it is imperative that your application makes you shine.  We can help with UC and private school applications, determine essential content that needs to be included, and address any lapses or gaps in your application.

Writing

Many tutoring centers can help you write a personal statement that is well-written and grammatically correct, but this is only part of the requirement.  The most important job of your personal statements is to make sure that your writing matches up with the self you presented in the application.  At Oxford Tutoring, our college consulting services can help you do just that with personal statement help, making sure you engage the reader, and then crafting a polished essay.
