What we do

Less Stress, Better Grades, And A More Productive Academic Life

Our Academic Coaching Program provides students with virtual, executive function coaching. With an approach customized to the needs of each student, our coaches work to help students increase self awareness, optimize learning effectiveness, and become more independent. Our weekly check-ins and routine communication with students helps them with time management, planning, utilizing campus resources, goal settings, study strategies, managing stress, and school/life balance.

The mission of State Street Education’s graduate school admission counseling program is to help our clients reach their professional goals by assisting them with all the components of the application process. Our counselors have worked with clients from a wide variety of backgrounds, undergraduate institutions, and helped them prepare applications to graduate programs across the country. At the heart of our work with clients is the expertise of our counselors and the trusting relationships they build with you, to ensure you find a graduate program that will match your goals.
