Why Does My Family Need an Educational Consultant?
Quite simply, with more and more families choosing elite private schools, it's hard to get in. You want your child to succeed. You also want to stop worrying. An expert will help you.
Why Should I Hire an Abacus Guide Educational Consultant?
If you sign up for our School Selection Program, Preschoolers' Prep Program, and/or our Private School Admissions Support Program, you'll work with Emily Glickman.
Emily is one of New York's leading experts on private school admissions and tristate area private, public, and parochial schools. In practice for over a decade--longer than almost every other consultant--Emily has a vast breadth of admissions knowledge, which she gladly shares with her clients. Emily provides the warmest, most personal, most efficient service available.
Emily has been featured in many newspapers, magazines, books and television programs, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, CBS News, New York Magazine, The New York Sun, Time Out New York, The Daily News, and The Manhattan Family Guide to Private Schools. Emily was the ONLY New York area consultant recommended in a national magazine's recent guide. The listing notes that Emily "has landed hundreds of children in premium kindergartens." (Emily also assists families with students applying to 1st through 12th grades.) Emily's current clients include investment bankers, hedge fund managers, lawyers, doctors, business executives, professors, and celebrities. For more about Emily, click here.

When Should I Work with an Educational Consultant?
Anytime you wish: we have worked with parents of babies to parents of 11th graders. Ideally, you will contact us a year and a half prior to when your child will enroll in school (private school admissions support), or prior to acquiring or renting a new home (school selection). Please note, the fall is our busiest period. We accept only a limited number of new clients to ensure that we can offer each our highest level of service. Unfortunately, during most years we have had to restrict enrollment in our Private School Admissions Support Program. (We also offer School Selection, Welcome to New York, Preschoolers' Prep, and tutoring programs.) If you're interested in this season and/or this program, please try to contact us well in advance of when your child will be going through the admissions cycle.

Feedback from Abacus Guide Educational Consulting Clients:
"My son got into three private schools' kindergartens! I know I could not have done this without your help. I thought the service you provided was great and kept a busy mother on track! Thank you again for everything, especially for how to prepare my son for interviews." -Marketing Executive, Mom
"I could not be more satisfied with our family's decision to hire Emily and Abacus Guide. Our son got into his top-choice school, which was tough because it is all boys and very competitive. We will definitely call on Emily again when our daughter is ready to apply to schools. Considering how much private school costs, a good educational consultant is a good investment." -Investment Banker, Dad
"Honestly, I was not sure about hiring an educational consultant because I didn't know if it would really help. Now I can tell you, I don't know what people do who DON'T call you, Emily. The process is so confusing and stressful, and you made it much easier. You explained everything and you coached us on how to best approach the schools. I couldn't get over how well we did at the interviews! Most importantly, I am so happy with where <daughter's name> got in." -Art Gallery Owner, Mom
