Barbara Leventhal brings to our educational consulting practice more than 30 years of experience as a teacher, administrator, and college counselor. “All parents take great pride in the special qualities of their children. My role is to define those qualities and channel them in unique ways that tell a compelling story for college admission."
As an educational consultant, reading specialist, teacher, administrator, parent, and grandparent, Barbara Leventhal knows what it’s like to experience the stress and frustration at every step in the education process. Her empathy for her students makes things easier for both them and their parents.
"I was accepted at all of my top schools and was awarded over $200,000 in merit aid, so YES, Barb’s guidance really made a difference. She gave me actionable feedback that allowed me to improve my essays; we worked together, revising my essays until they were perfect. She managed and respected my workload by scheduling frequent short meetings. I completed all ten of my applications by the early deadline, so I could take advantage of the early admission opportunities and merit aid."

"When I first started working with Barbara in high school, I had no idea how I was going to write all the essays for my applications. I felt overwhelmed. It was a detailed process, but Barb kept me on track. She guided my family and me through the many decisions involved in the college admission process, calmed us when we were worried, and made it possible for us to get through the whole process with minimal stress. When it came time to apply to grad school, I went back to Barb again because of how much value she added. Thanks, Barb, I was admitted to all three of my top choice grad schools!"

"We know we are not alone in how we feel about you. You are so much more than a coach to your students and their families. Your support and genuine interest in our children’s success and well-being is both touching and invaluable."
