We want to help bright and talented parents who are put in an impossible situation: navigating the crazy and competitive world of New York City private school admissions. We offer you huge amounts of warmth, caring, and most importantly, expert knowledge that has been accumulated over the past 15 years. You are getting real advice from our real experiences! Use this book as your guide for valuable wisdom. Maintain your sense of humor and keep your spirits up! Look at this as an opportunity to discover many magical and unique schools. We are here to help you navigate through this entire challenge. Going through this process is so much more than a cerebral one. It is an emotional, crucial, soul-searching time in your life.

We came from two very different worlds, different sensibilities, and different cultures. Yet we share many similarities, common goals, and aspirations.

Our Experience

We have worked in admissions in the top New York City private schools, collectively, for the past 15 years. We have navigated this process, successfully, for our own children. Both of us have worked as either directors of admissions and/or admission officers and have been involved in all aspects of the process, interviewing parents, overseeing children’s playgroup visits, and reading thousands of completed files to obtain those precious few acceptances.

We have worked in classrooms, and with children and their families to answer all of their education related questions, including academics and social interactions. Please contact us to find out more about these services.


Landfall and Discovery

Landfall and Discovery

(Across the Chasm of Time Book 1,2,3,4,5,6) 

Deep in the past a survey ship visits the last planet of a twelve planet mission; the third planet of a lone yellow star system on the outer arm of their spiral galaxy. But the ship is badly damaged during landing as a massive volcano unexpectedly erupts beneath the ship. The rescue ship arrives bearing repair parts and an edict that all personnel are to return home immediately. Intrigue and suspicions are kindled when the ships engineers discover a plot to sabotage the ship. The captain has to make a hard decision to safeguard those he cares about.
Daniel Cleary is a young man about to realize his dreams when everything suddenly goes wrong. Uncle Jake passes away, his girlfriend dumps him, and he loses his job. He then learns he is the sole beneficiary of his Uncles estate but is required to move into and maintain those properties in the small city of Durango, Colorado; a long way from his home town in Ohio. Couldn’t be all bad, he thinks; he already knows one person in town, a waitress by the name of Ann Lyndes. More bad news, Ann thinks there’s a conspiracy surrounding not only Jake’s death, but that of Jake’s parents as well. And well she might, her father disappeared, and her mother was found murdered when she was only five. Fearing for their lives these two kindred souls come together when they find out the terrible secret of what is really hidden in the mine.

The Cornish Talisman Series
(Book 1,2,3)

Once there was a race of people that had ranged throughout the star ways of our galaxy, they were called the Predecessors. Occasionally space explorers would find one of their abandoned ships; little more than a rusted out hulk, the centuries of disuse leaving little evidence of its former grandeur. But where had they gone? Jasom Kingston is a fifteen-year-old boy on the Kings’ Quest, a small exploring ship sent out to explore a star system further out on the galactic arm from their home world of Evenset. Arial, the nineteen-year-old daughter of the ship’s captain is Jasom’s competition when it comes to explorations, but also the girl he secretly has a crush on. During a training mission Jasom discovers something mysterious hidden amongst the jagged rocks that comprise a belt of cosmic debris between the orbits of the fourth and fifth planets of this yellow star, so far from home. How had it come to be there? As the crew decides to return to Evenset to enlist help, Jasom is allowed to use the ship’s small flyer to retrieve a satellite they had placed in orbit around the third planet. Things escalate when the Queryl, a mysterious and inimical race of beings from an unknown part of the galaxy, attack the King’s Quest. Will Jasom make it back to the ship in time? How will the ship deal with the dangerous Queryl? Beep…beep, Jasom receives a message, it’s not what he expected. He reads… Queryl onslaught imminent. Invoking emergency protocol Q-stat. Your orders are to proceed using protocol R-stat. Love mom. All he could remember about the R-stat protocol were a few words that are new to him: Nashua, Montana, 1952…

A Shout behind the Iron Bars

A Shout behind the Iron Bars 

A-Shout-behind-the-Iron-Bars - Alexandru Bochis-Borsanu
“A Shout behind the Iron Bars” is a genuine revolt and indignation of a man who was formed, trained and specialized to fight terrorism, the most seasoned criminals, some of which had international resonance, referred to by the author in the book. In a moment of desperation “the prisoner” starts a hunger strike, which began unnoticed even completely ignored by those who incarcerated him, risking the health and lives.
The diversion created in those days induced in people’s minds confusions that have led to manifest or act recklessly or even hostile. For example, the ambulance doctor who accused him of terrorism, influenced by his torturers. Subsidiary, from the book transpires the “Transylvanian” spirit of the author, his fortitude in getting freedom, his knowledge in the science of law and faith in God.
The content of the book is brisk and often involves unique sequences from the author’s profession about the cases he solved. It is an easy read, being written in an accessible language.
It is recommended for adults, wistful elders, thrill seekers, participants in the events of December ’89 but especially young people, because they too have the right to know the truth.
