Hi, I am Ruchi
I am an Independent Education Counselor specializing in guidance for international students for career planning and college admissions to the US. I have an education background with a Certificate Degree in College Admissions and Career Planning from UC Berkeley. I have worked with various college counselling companies both in the US and India. I work with a limited number of students per year.
“No matter which grade, NOW is the right time to begin your journey of self-exploration.”
I am just a message away.
I guide my students through the entire college selection and application journey that includes:
Discussions on College Major
Extra-Curricular Strategy and Summer Planning
College List Exploration and Selection
College Essays Brainstorming, Prep Editing and Reviewing
College Application, Process, and Selection
Guidance with Recommendation Letters

Some questions I am frequently asked
Of course, you can. However, having a little guidance can really go a long way. Think of me as your sounding board and a person you can always go to whenever you have a query. Going alone is always an option. With me along, it becomes a lot easier to navigate.
That’s a very valid question! My students and the parents with whom I have worked speak on my behalf. I can assure you that I will do my very best to assist you.
No one can guarantee that, but I can assure you to work with your child to find the right fit where he/she will be happy, confident and successful.
While I specialize in assisting international students, I work with all students who are interested regardless of their current residence.
