College may be the biggest financial investment in a parent's and student's life. College costs can easily equal that of a house these days with no end to the cost increases in sight. College courses often require text books that can cost hundreds of dollars each. Beyond Tutoring's new College Road Map service can help maximize the college experience by starting students out the right way.
The College Road Map service is all about making sure the student arrives at college prepared, ready to learn, and knowing what to expect. Hiring an expert to optimize the experience and make sure the skills and grades and being built to prepare a student for the world is the advantage some students need. Setting off for college is a stressful enough time and without a clear plan, easy to make mis-steps. All too often, students don't know what they don't know in how to handle their needs. First time living away from home, first time being totally responsible for everything, and it can lead to a sense of being overwhelmed and unable to cope. But it doesn't have to be this way. Often times a coach or mentor who is an expert in the field can help keep everything on track. Katie Schellenberg is an Academic Concierge and the founder of Beyond Tutoring, created the College Road Map to help recent graduates head off to college the smart way; fully prepared and ready to succeed. According to Katie, "Once kids have been accepted to college they are usually academically prepared, but they are often overwhelmed at their new-found freedom."
Katie has worked with students from all over the world to make sure they have the life, personal and professional skills to thrive in college and beyond. Often, Katie helps with the college application process, course selection, even obtaining housing that meets the specific needs of the student that would be overlooked by over worked admissions offices. She also works with students with disabilities or executive functioning disorders learn to self-advocate on the college scope. Being a teacher and a lawyer, Katie has a unique skill set that is utilized to maneuver the tricky waters of college admissions and accommodations. The College Road Map service came about because of an increasing need for accommodations and an academic environment in schools that is not responsive to student's needs. "Parents call BeyondTutoring daily seeking help because of the complexity involved in obtaining accommodations for students" explains Katie. "BeyondTutoring steps in and with the College Road Map students get immediate help in meeting their needs, but also learn to self advocate. In cases where additional help is needed BeyondTutoring will still be there."
"Students may spend all summer picking out the perfect bedspread, but they haven't given much thought to the tremendous freedom they are about to have and how to juggle competing interests," says Katie. This new freedom can cause students to not focus on their studies and can cause sever academic issues including losing financial aid or being forced out of school. This is especially students with needs or who need accommodations that might not be easy to come by. Expert help is available.
