Signals Educational Excellence

I’m a college professor and higher education consultant from  Aiken.  I have developed a workshop for college-bound students and their parents to learn how to avoid problems that we are seeing more and more of in higher education, including such things as poor student-to-professor communication, not knowing how to utilize campus services, and trouble adapting to new teaching and learning formats.  Lack of these skills costs the students, and subsequently the parents, considerable time, resources and, yes, money.   I see it every day – this at a time when the cost of a college education is skyrocketing.  Homeschool students of high school age benefit greatly from my workshop, and it looks good on a college application.   I would be happy to send you a full workshop agenda.   Kent T.
