Why do students need guidance counselors?
Combine that with a number of factors that make the landscape more competitive such as more international students seeking admission to colleges in the United States, lack of access for people of all economic and geographical backgrounds to information about colleges, more early decision opportunities and an increase in “need-blind” applications, in which colleges do not consider an applicant’s financial status in admission decisions.
When should students start to use a guidance counselor?
The earlier they bring in a coach, the more time they’ll have to turn around weak grades through extra tutoring, add extracurricular activities that will make their college application statement stand out, do practice runs for the college interview and ensure they get high scores in the standardized tests.
The competition is steep but a knowledgeable counselor will be able to guide a student down the best path.
How do we conduct virtual counseling?
STEP TWO: We pair students with career counselors that help in the following areas:
– Identify the student’s personal goals after college
– Research career and jobs opportunities
– Choose a career major
– Choose a school
– Provide guidance on extracurricular activities which are in line with the student’s long term goals that would be appealing on a college application
– Knowing what college admissions are looking for, provide guidance on personal essays for college applications
– Prepare students with mock interviews asking common and uncommon questions, offer tips, such as keeping good eye contact, engaging in conversations with personal anecdotes, and of course, practicing good etiquette, such as showing up on time and turning cellphones off.
How can technology help address the emotional stress students are experiencing?
These apps are meant to help students learn stress management skills, anxiety management skills, emotional regulation skills, and attention management skills. They run on VR goggles using ct/at/pt models.
