About the course

Maybe you've heard about the famous Common App? Many colleges allow students to use this application for applying to their college so they can save time in one application. This course reviews what the application is, which colleges use it, and how to navigate it. We go through an entire Common App demonstration so you can see how it works and what to input. The goal of the course is to help you get ready to apply on the Common App so your applications are good to go!

I have worked for the past three years as a college adviser helping high school students with the college admissions process. During this time, I helped students with their college essays, SAT/ACT prep, and their college applications. I have also helped tutor peers in college and high school as well as led a middle school mentoring program. I joined Gooroo to make a number of subjects in high school more accessible and easier to understand for all students. I am excited to help students with the college application process as well as math and science subjects so they can achieve their goals and grow individually.
