College Counseling

College Counseling services began in 2012 under the direct leadership of Kirstin Fowler. In addition to extensive informal experience both as an applicant herself and as an adviser to her family and friends, Kirstin’s formal experience with the world of college admissions began as an interviewer for Duke University in London in 2007. Now the Western Pennsylvania chairperson for the Duke Alumni Admissions Advisory Committee, she translates her experience from the admissions side to assisting students in curating a personalized presentation sure to impress any school.

At present, KEFTutoring works on five areas with students, including:

  1. School selection
  2. Deadline and time management
  3. Requesting recommendations
  4. Creating a resume
  5. Essay writing

KEFTutoring specializes in assisting students with the entire college search process. Essays, however, often pose the greatest challenge to students. Therefore, KEFTutoring encourages all students to begin considering the following questions when responding to both Common Application and Supplemental essays.

  • What truly matters to me? (ie What in my life is most authentic?/What am I dedicated to?)
  • How do I respond to challenges?
  • What observations, reflections, or evaluations can I make about my life?

  • Boston College
  • Boston University
