  • The Art & Science of Curating Social Media for College Admissions

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 04/10/2018

    This webinar will examine the definitive ways colleges are using social media to recruit and vet students and will then deliver pragmatic instruction on how to counsel students (and their parents) to curate a compelling and informative public digital presence.

    This webinar will examine the definitive ways colleges are using social media to recruit and vet students and will then deliver pragmatic instruction on how to counsel students (and their parents) to curate a compelling and informative public digital presence. Curation is about knowing what to display publicly and what should remain private. Students can be taught that digital artifacts which demonstrate their interests, achievements, service, and skill could be both public and identifiable.

    The chances that a student’s social media activities will be scrutinized at some point during the transition from high school to college and then from college to career is increasing. Learning how to use social media tools advantageously to create and disperse an authentic, reflective, discoverable, and informative digital presence has become an essential life skill that is rarely taught in schools.

Her work goes beyond academic and test prep with techniques to enhance concentration, focus, recall, and ease, drawing from hypnosis, Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP), Emotional Freedom Technique/Tapping (EFT), EMDR, Integrative Life Coaching, Speed Reading, mindfulness, and her training and practice as an artist.

  • How to Improve a Personal Statement in 20 Minutes

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 11/14/2017

During this webinar, Ethan Sawyer (College Essay Guy) will share a four-step process you can use with your students. Handouts and sample essays provided.

In his past role as assistant director of admissions for a private New England college, Scott developed strong connections with institutions of higher learning across the US.

He is president of the New London Board of Education where he continues to further his knowledge of educational issues and fight for the rights of all children. Having numerous learning challenges himself, including ADHD and dyscalculia, Scott learned to overcome obstacles both externally and internally.
