College Planning

At Sheptin Tutoring Group

We Understand

College planning, applying and selecting can be a stressful experience for you and your student.

At Sheptin Tutoring Group, we offer solutions and the level of support that works for you.

Our Approach

Our approach to College Planning begins with the understanding that every student is different and that there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ blueprint to success. We take the time to develop a school direction that is a good fit both academically and socially for your student.

Managing the needs and wants of both you and your student is an important part of the puzzle in the development of a thoughtful, realistic game plan that makes sense.

Our method is logical and detailed, with one purpose in mind: making sure that your student is doing what is necessary to reach his or her goals.
We offer both package plans and hourly consultations.
