College Counselors

Getting accepted to your dream college involves more than just strong high school performance and SAT or ACT scores. Crafting a compelling application that showcases your strengths, conveys your unique qualities, and highlights your passions is crucial. The college application process is complex, requiring a well-curated list of colleges, engaging personal statements, supplemental essays, solid teacher recommendations, and demonstrated leadership beyond academics.

Students and parents often need guidance with aspects of the college application process, from sorting through numerous colleges to finalizing decisions and completing financial aid applications. We offer in-house college counseling as part of our core services and are eager to help your family navigate the college admission process. However, due to limited space in our program and to ensure an ideal fit for every student, we also maintain a trusted network of external Bay Area college counselors.

Explore our in-house college admission counseling program and benefit from the convenience of working with professionals who already know your student, or consult our college admission counseling referral list to find an independent college counselor who can assist with your application process. Just as with tutoring, finding the right fit in a college counselor is essential, so we encourage you to connect with multiple counselors to explore your options.

Educational Psychologists/Other Resources

Students who have learning disabilities or learning differences may qualify for extended time on the SAT and ACT. Accommodations on the SAT and ACT for students with learning differences can include time and a half, double time, and other assistance with the tests. In order to receive extended time, students must provide the College Board and the ACT organization with documented evidence of learning differences or disabilities.

While AJ Tutoring does not test students for learning differences, we do refer to educational consultants and psychologists who provide that service. Educational consultants and psychologists can also assist with getting an IEP in place at school and can provide academic coaching and counseling for students who struggle with academic life and testing.

Please visit our list of Bay Area educational consultants and psychologists for assistance in beginning the process of testing for accommodations on the SAT and ACT.
