Advice on Making College Affordable
(Each session is 30 minutes). I will advise you on financial aid, free online classes, and frugal living methods that will help you minimize the cost of attending college without sacrificing quality of life. For loans, I will highlight the DOs and DON'Ts of financing your education and how to best pay them off if you do need to take them out. I also can discuss how to start applying for scholarships and paying your loans after graduation. Feel free to request multiple sessions if you like.
Training & Qualifications
I am a graduate of the University of Chicago who came from a low-income background from the South Side of Chicago. In my time there, I learned how to manage money, homework, and stress to make ends meet while still enjoying my time at college. I have advised colleagues at my university and students at Chicago Public Schools on this subject since September 2015.
