Bay Area College Consulting to Offer Course Scheduling

Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) April 23, 2012

Cupertino-based Bay Area College Consulting will begin offering course scheduling service to incoming freshmen college students for the 2012 – 2013 academic year. This will supplement existing college counseling services to aid high school students get into college, including academic, extra-curricular, and leadership building consultation, summer school consultation to study at the University of California at Berkeley and at Stanford University, and college application assistance.

"This will help relieve stress for both students and parents," according to Trung Le, college counselor, De Anza faculty member, and founder of Bay Area College Consulting.

"College course scheduling isn't like high school course scheduling. For the most part, you are on your own in college. You do not have computers generating your schedule for you like you did back in high school. Things are much more complicated when dealing with general education and graduation requirements in addition to the major requirements at each university. My goal is to simplify the complexity of the entire college course scheduling process by planning each semester/quarter of a student's college education."

Simplifying the college admission process and relieving stress for busy parents and students is the reason why Bay Area College Consulting has gained its mostly affluent client base. Among Mr. Le's clients are parents who are business owners and company executives. "They care about their child's future and are often too busy, too worried, or too stressed out, which is why they hire me to be their independent college counselor."

Independent college counselors have gained popularity over the years due to the lack of college counselors in high school and at community colleges.

Bay Area College Consulting is located near Apple's main campus and De Anza College in Cupertino, California. In-person service is available to residents of the South Bay including San Jose, Fremont, Milpitas, Santa Clara, Palo Alto, and neighboring cities, and also to residents of the East Bay including Oakland, Pleasanton, San Ramon, Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill, Concord, Benicia and neighboring cities. Telephone and web consultation are available to residents outside of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Thomas M. Creates Journal devoted to Political Science; Sold on Amazon

"I sought and hired an advisor from Bay Area College Consulting to help me plot the course to realize the life and career I planned, and found to my surprise that good grades were not that hard for me to achieve. I started The American Future a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to exploring ideas that can shape our nation's future, and I also attended Republican campaign victory school in Washington, where I learned the skills needed to be an effective campaign staffer. On the plane home from Washington I knew it was time to get hands on political training, and emailed the clear front runner for the Republican party in a nearby Congressional race. The next day, I joined the team, and in just a few weeks I became the deputy political director, and an irreplaceable member of the team. I was working 75 hours a week, and learning all I could about campaigning. We closed the underdog gap to a narrow margin, and opportunities now abound for the members of that team. I am now an alternate delegate for the Republican Party Central Committee in Contra Costa County, and am doing other work for the California Republican Party. Though I have been fortunate in finding many avenues that teach and challenge me, the most important lesson I have learned is about myself. I have gone from being a passive student, ready only to go through the motions, to being actively responsible for my own experience of life. It is because of the guidance Bay Area College Consulting offered me that I have been able to accomplish so much." Thank you Bay Area College Consulting for putting me on the right path." Note: Thomas transferred to American University in Washington D.C. in January, 2011

Mar C. Transfers to the UC-Davis from Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill

Mr. Le, director and head coach, was a mentor and academic coach for Mar during his attendance at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill for the past two years. He was encouraged to sign the TAG agreement with the University of California system during the Fall semester of 2008 and was except into all except two universities in the entire UC system. He plans to attend UC-Davis in the Fall of 2009 and will major in philosophy. Here is Mar's testimonial: "[He] introduced the concept of... transferring to prestigious Universities; however, to me that was unheard of, because the thought of it was beyond my expectations. Before introducing me to the transfer agreement process, he made an appointment during one of the weekends for both of us to have a grand tour at the University of California at Berkeley." "While we were both walking around the Berkeley campus, I was instantaneously compelled by the radiating atmosphere in the area and of course the colossal structures of the buildings; it was my first time visiting the place, and what I had witnessed filled me with exuberance. Afterwards, my belief level escalated overnight due to the intensity of such an experience which Mr. Le had implanted in my mind." Note: Mar is now at the University of California at Davis

Hanae T. Passes the Writing Skills Test (WST) at San Jose State University

"I received a passing grade for the WST at San Jose State University after being tutored by Mr. Le for a period of two months over the summer. I had been struggling on the essay portion of the WST since my first try because I am a foreign exchange student and English is my second language. As the tutoring sessions went by, my essay score significantly went up and I finally passed the writing portion of the test with my highest score ever! Mr. Le is very helpful, nice, and a very motivating person!"

Eugene C. Transfer to the UC-Berkeley from De Anza College in Cupertino

"The most important counsel I received from Mr. Le was his advice to pursue a career in academia. His [advice] was tailored to my interests, strengths, and personality (I do not doubt that for you he may suggest something different). He explained the importance of applying to a prestigious university if I think I may want to pursue a doctorate. Mr. Le also elaborated on the difference of the California State University (CSU) system and the University of California (UC) system. Simply put, it would be extremely difficult for me to attend the UC if I first attend the CSU. I had not known this. I had also never entertained the idea of applying to a prestigious university, let alone being admitted to one. With his explanation of why I may enjoy the life of an academic and the subsequent encouragement of applying to UCs, he gave me the nudge I needed to set off on my path. Today, I am attending UC Berkeley and majoring in philosophy. After my undergraduates work, I will apply to institutions such as Stanford, NYU, and Harvard for my graduate studies. Before I met Mr. Le I did not allow myself to entertain such notions. Thankfully, I did in fact meet him, and was shown the possibilities." Note: Eugene graduated from UC-Berkeley in May, 2010
