My name is Laura Rader. I graduated from SDSU and received my Independent Educational Consultant Certificate from UC Irvine. I am also a California credentialed public school teacher in English and Social Sciences for Grades 6-12 and Multiple Subjects Grades K-8 . My firm Wise Ambitions College Consulting was founded in February of 2014, with the goal of providing personal, custom support and expertise to high school students, transfer students and their families. I believe in working as a team and meeting your needs.
College will be a student's home and full time occupation for four years, so it is important to prepare and choose wisely. College admissions are selective and college is expensive, so the more prepared you are and the more you know, the more successful you will be. Helping you with all of this is the role of the independent college consultant.
You are unique. We deliver custom solutions to the college admissions process, tailored to you – your ambitions, your personality, your financial situation.
We offer a range of consulting services, all designed to help you find the best college for YOU! Our services are available as a comprehensive package or on an hourly basis, so you can get precisely what you need
Our initial 45-minute meet-and-greet is free: in-person, by phone, or by email, depending on your location.
