College Preparation Today Under Corona Circumstances

Hello all,

I haven’t updated this blog in quite some time.  But current circumstances certainly deserve comment!

I am continuing to tutor, although students and I no longer meet in the house.  Instead we meet outside on the deck, keeping a physical distance, and we mix that up with virtual meetings, using Zoom or another communications platform.  I’ve found that tutoring in that fashion works well.

More problematic these days is the whole process of preparing to go to college.  When and where and how will college admissions tests be given in the fall of 2020?  Will colleges suspend their admission test requirements?

Recently I’ve also been helping students write their college application personal essays.  That’s one requirement that has become more important than ever. 

Contact me if you would like to discuss your particular situation.
