WHAT WE DO
Rebecca Field Consulting offers two unique services both for students who learn differently (LD) and for students without learning challenges. With years of experience working with students and their families, Rebecca Field Consulting offers College Admissions Advising and College Success & Retention Coaching.
COLLEGE ADMISSION ADVISING
When high school students and their families begin to consider the transition from high school to college, they often need support and guidance. Rebecca Field Consulting offers this help. Through individualized and expertly guided sessions, Rebecca Field Consulting assists students and families in selecting appropriate post high school options and completing the necessary applications, essays and supplements to ensure that students have the best chance of admission. Rebecca Field Consulting is skilled at working with LD students and with those who do not struggle with learning challenges, and is committed to helping students find the very best college match.
COLLEGE SUCCESS & RETENTION COACHING
What happens once students are admitted into college? How can families ensure students' continued success? In addition to college admissions advising, Rebecca Field Consulting offers a unique service, College Success & Retention Coaching.
In our experience working with students with LD and with those who do not struggle with learning challenges, we have learned that students often do not get the support they need once they arrive on a college campus. Our students can get into college, but staying there is another matter altogether. LD students often need assistance accessing supports on campus, understanding how the law impacts their rights in a post-secondary environment, and organizing their time. Students without unique learning needs can also struggle with time management, course selection, and follow through. Providing the needed support can make the difference between college success and dropping out.
