Preparing and planning for college admissions is an increasingly daunting task. Every passing year the application process gets more competitive and frustrating for students, parents, and instructors alike. But in that relentless pursuit of acceptance, we oftentimes neglect the crucial skills that are necessary for long-term success far beyond college. While admittance into top ranked universities is our institutional goal, we have catered our college counseling curriculum to develop learning and life skills that ensure the student’s success in school and beyond.
At Mavin, we put an emphasis on personal development and goal building. By partaking in our carefully crafted program students will gain a better understanding of what they value and what they want to achieve in life, effectively tying their long-term goals to their academic interests and personal strengths. By challenging them to critically question their intentions, they will be better equipped with the skills and knowledge to overcome monumental obstacles that will present themselves at top ranked schools. Better yet, they will begin to view college as a stepping stone, not a destination.
With this holistic approach dedicated to the long term success of our students, we believe we can make a huge difference in not only a child’s admissions journey, but their college and career journeys as well. With a personally customized curriculum we will ensure that is a reality with your child and push them to be a great student and an even better citizen, ready for long-term success.
All prospective clients receive an initial complimentary, 60-minute consultation. While we prefer to see you in person, we can meet online or by phone to accommodate your needs. We’ll take the time to listen to your needs, and show you how we can help you reach your dreams. Schedule a free consultation today!
After your academic consultation, we assign our students with a qualified student counselor that will best serve their needs. Each student will have a designated student counselor and a program coordinator that will guide them throughout the college planning process.
Building a Stellar Profile
Our Mavin counselors will be there to guide students through their college planning process, providing advice on self-exploration, choosing the right courses, and exploring academic and extracurricular interests. Instead of just recommending activities that will impress colleges, we help our students discover their inner motivation and unlock their potential.
Craft an Outstanding Application
Mavin counselors will guide our students through the whole application process, from selecting the best-fit schools best, devising an application strategy, to filling out the application forms and writing exceptional admission essays.
Submit and Get Admitted
Our team will conduct a mock committee review of students’ applications before they hit the “submit” button to make sure they are immaculate. We will also guide students in submitting supplemental materials and required documents, help with wait-lists and deferrals, and help the families make the final decision as the offers come in!

What Our Clients Are Saying
Real success stories that changes lives.
Mr. Rose & the Mavin team were instrumental in both my success in high school and my development as a young adult. Mr. Rose provided me with great mentorship, and helped me to become a top student.
My son got 800 on math and 760 on English. Thanks so much to Dr. Sippl!
I just got 1500 on my SAT, which is a big improvement. Thank you guys so much. Justin is an extraordinary teacher.
Mr. and Mrs. Rose are not just any college counselors. They are life mentors to students and a team who genuinely want to help others with the college application process. I loved how they were super detailed about the application process.
My wife and I interviewed other tutoring centers and found them either too focused on just Asian students or had an arrogant attitude. On the other hand, we have been with Mavin for the last year or so and find this to be a very well-run and professional tutoring center.
I will be attending New York University, Tandon School of Engineering in fall, 2018. Despite having been learning English for four long years, I still can’t use words to describe my gratitude toward Mavin tutors and the Rose couple.
Mavin was an extremely important resource for the college application process. Their counselors paid great attention to detail and personalized their service well. In particular, they were able to highlight the strengths of my application.
-UC Berkeley Admit
About 3 years ago, I was one of you who had nightmares of being rejected by colleges. Aaron and Caroline were right there with me throughout the whole process and made me believe that I’m actually better than I thought.
Mavin Learning has helped me a lot during the college applications process. I met Aaron and he was able to turn a jumble of thoughts into a wonderful essay that depicted my experience and growth in a well-organized manner.
The college counseling here at Mavin Center has truly met and exceeded my expectations. Mr. Rose and his wife, Caroline, do a superb job in introducing and familiarizing the college application process – taking it baby steps by first before delving into the complications.
