For Parents

As a parent, we know that you want what is best for your child. With Success Koach, you can rest assured knowing that you're not just setting your child up for a great college experience—you're setting them up for success in life!

Coaching doesn't just help students.

Helping your student navigate the admissions process can involve a roller-coaster of emotions. As a parent or guardian, you deserve support, too!

Success Koach's unique process makes it clear when and where parents can best assist their child while still creating space for the student to flourish and take responsibility on their own. 

We're on your team and by your side every step of the way!

We will help your student:

  • Brainstorm possibilities

  • Explore options

  • Understand where their skills and interests overlap

  • Develop a step-by-step plan for admissions to the programs that will help them thrive

  • Create new skills in executive functioning, such as calendaring, prioritizing tasks, and setting goals

  • Select and apply to summer programs that will strengthen their application

  • Prepare for standardized exams

  • Write and edit essays that are unique to them and appealing to programs

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I really need a college counselor? Can't we figure this out on our own?
    It is possible to navigate the college application process on your own. Lots of people do it! But it's not easy. Many parents report that they feel overwhelmed trying to understand complicated admissions requirements, and are unsure how to support their child or prepare them for the exams, essays, and interviews involved. Instead of googling answers to questions (and there will be a LOT of questions), you could have a trusted guide by your side to help you know what to do to support your child in achieving their goals.
  • Can you get my student into a Top 20 School?
    Success Koach has helped dozens of students get accepted into top schools, including Berkeley, Purdue, the USC System, UT Texas, Columbia—the list goes on! The truth is that top ranked schools are not always the best fit for a student (and vice versa). College admissions is a nuanced process, and we find that by helping students explore options and focus on their unique skills, interests, and strengths, they are better prepared to be successful in life (no matter where they go to school).
  • If my student is struggling in school, can you still help them?
    Yes! Our coaching helps the student beyond just the college application. With a focus on executive functioning skills (planning, prioritizing, and accomplishing tasks) and the support of a team dedicated to their success, your child will develop better habits and better understand their own skills and interests.
