What is the typical student profile you work with?

AYEC has worked with students applying to a wide range of colleges from community colleges to the Ivy league. Our families are considering a range of college options in the state of Florida and throughout the United States. Our “best fit” approach focuses on the unique needs of the student and family to identify colleges that are ideal for his or her circumstances.

When do I need to get started with college advising?

AYEC will start with students as early as 9th grade. The majority of our clients hire us in the student’s freshman or sophomore year in high school. This early approach ensures you will benefit from the time available to make strategic decisions throughout high school that will positively impact a student’s college admissions chances.

What differentiates AYEC from its competitors?

AYEC is a “boutique” college advising firm that focuses on individualized college consulting services. AYEC’s “high touch” approach and small client roster ensures that each client has access to Naomi’s expertise whenever needed. All college advising services are delivered by Naomi, and AYEC emphasizes a strong relationship between Naomi and the student and parents.

What does AYEC charge?

This answer depends on the needs of the student and family. I am happy to discuss fees and service options with any prospective family over the phone or in person.

Where are your offices? Do you meet in our home?

AYEC’s offices are in Boca Center (on Military in between Palmetto Park Road and Glades road). All meetings are held in these offices. AYEC also uses Skype, FaceTime, and Zoom as needed for meetings.
