High School Coaching: Academic Planning & Resume Package
Who is this for? The Academic Planning and Resume Package (APRP) is for students and families looking to stay ahead of the curve with their college admissions preparation. In the APRP our professionals conduct two major steps: development of a formal list of colleges for early consideration, and preparation of Professional Tutoring’s highly successful Student Resume.
Client deliverables generally include:
