Welcome to Highly Personalized College Counseling!

Melanie Nazareth enthusiastically blends encouragement with realism to guide college bound students and their families as they navigate the complex, competitive and ever changing college application process. She customizes her approach through individualized attention to meet the specific needs of each student. She works with students ranging from freshmen to seniors. No matter when students start the process, Melanie systematically works with her students to discover their unique talents, explore their interests, reach their highest potential and develop a compelling college application.

Through ethical and comprehensive guidance, Melanie aims to:

  • De-stress the application process for students and families by breaking tasks down into attainable goals.
  • Help students fit the application process components into their busy schedules through manageable deadlines.
  • Encourage students to portray their talents, circumstances, persona, and communicate their unique stories.
  • Assist students in their college search to select a college which is a right fit for them.
