The Expert Networks
Consultant Profile - Experts include former Ivy League admissions directors, award-winning authors, former financial aid officers, nationally reknown college and private school admissions experts, athletic coaches and recruiters from First Division and Ivy League schools, guidance counselors, as well as early learning and child psychologists.
How it Works - Consultations are based on parents needs. Parents provide information on the age of the child, schools they're interested in, services they are interested in, method of contact, any special considerations and a date they would like to get started with the process. Aristotle Circle will review this information and provide a list of 3 to 5 experts along with information on their education, specialties, counseling experience, admissions experience and hourly rates. Once experts have been selected, the network sets-up an interview and holds payment in escrow until the consultation has been completed.
Opportunities - Consultations may be conducted on the telephone, in person or via email.
How to sign-up - Complete a detailed online application. Application includes work history, educational background and references. A resume is required. Photo is optional.
Payment - Rates are negotiated. Payment is typically issued within 10
days of invoice.
