Phyllis offers private career and college counseling located in Windham, Maine. She has a proven track record and a strong presence on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Pinterest. She will provide a fully customized, all-inclusive plan with dedicated support following her clients one full year after graduation. Every client is unique and one size does not fit all.
After 40 years as a public school counselor, Phyllis understands the need for private consultants to assist with planning and the transition phases as she is a pioneer in the laborious details and preparation needed to transition from school to career. Most recently she increased her business presence with an updated web page with updated skills: Myers/Briggs and ASVAB certified. College Knowledge will be looking for the “Best Fit” career and college for her client.
“Better Together” helps to describe the factors that differentiate and set College Knowledge apart from your public school counselors: Both are needed and can work together.
Public School Counselors have a huge caseload of students with daily crises. School counselors are responsible for meetings, planning, scheduling and a wide variety of issues and duties that must be attended to on a daily basis. College Knowledge intentionally keeps a small caseload in order to avail time for each of the needs of the client.
College Knowledge has critical experiences coming from teaching, coaching, counselor, director of counseling, business owner, and hobbies of interest which allow clients to know a real person with family and grandchildren garnered to benefit College Knowledge Skills and experience.
When College Knowledge is not busy with clients, preparation for workshops on the application process, financial aid, and scholarship acquisition are being upgraded. Work and play are often indistinguishable.
Life is short and time is precious. The client needs a balance of independence utilizing both their brain and heart to follow a path to success. The parent is continually kept in the loop. Phyllis believes in failure. This leads to students living up to their own expectations. Phyllis treats others the way they wish to be treated. She looks upon all things positively and puts a great deal of trust in intuition with supporting students to get the best value for theirs and their parent’s money. Advocating and speaking for her client she has made it through both tough and good times. Students transitioning are almost always fearful, whether they speak of it or not. Parents are most often horrified not at the transition but at the cost of the transition.
It is most rewarding to MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
College Knowledge Sole Proprietor Phyllis is the most experienced college counselor I have ever met. I have been fortunate to work with her for the past six years. She works with students from start to finish through their entire high school and college until employment. She truly wanted what was best for me. She listened before offering advice. With her help I was able to get into 11/12 schools that I applied to and got a significant scholarship to the school I ended up attending. I would highly recommend her services to anyone needing college planning or career change and planning.
College Knowledge is run by a professional Guidance Counselor with over 40 years experience helping students find the right match for college as well as guiding them through the applications process, assisting the family with financial aid searches and scholarship opportunities. Let College Knowledge help you take that next step in your educational journey.
Thank you so much for all of the help with my college application process. Your endless support and knowledge helped me greatly during this trying year of Covid. I will check in often. I am so excited to begin the Nursing program at Worcester State, Ma.
Phyllis has been instrumental in helping my grandson with identifying the plan for his future and setting the goals required to be successful. Her knowledge of the current options and requirements made the process of moving forward understandable and attainable, NOT formidable. Phyllis has continually made herself available and in so doing, my grandson has confidence in his future success as do I.
