Richard Givhan College App Counseling & Test Prep ($30/hr)


About this pro

Hello! As someone who only recently went through the college application process, I understand the attention-to-detail and work it takes to emerge from it successfully. I was admitted to Stanford, Columbia, UCLA, Vanderbilt, USC, Georgia Tech (for aerospace) and many others. I have chosen to attend Stanford; I'll be studying mechanical engineering and music. I am also the winner of the NSHSS Foundation STEM scholarship.

Having grown up abroad, I had nobody around to help me who was familiar with the American college application process. I devoted hours to mastering the tricks to a successful essay and had only myself to rely on when it came time to study for standardized tests. Because of this, I am confident that I can offer quality application guidance and test prep help to those trying to get into their dream schools. I have over a year's experience in tutoring and can ensure I will bring an enthusiasm to the lesson.

To add to this, at $30/hr, my rates are substantially lower than your typical college app counselor's.  All the money I make will go towards my tuition at Stanford. 

You can contact me by phone, at (251)-422-4563, or by email, at [email protected] 

It's never too early to get a head start on your applications!


My aim is not simply to teach students how to tick all of the boxes an admissions officer is looking for. I enjoy helping students realize their own interests and pushing them to develop their ability to accentuate their passion for them in their essays. 


Who doesn't love seeing a concept click in someone else's mind?
