Occam Education

Online Tutoring & Admissions Consulting

Helping students reach their education and career dreams since 2009

How we work

We specialize in putting together multi-year plans for students who want to study at top US and UK universities.

We assess.

  • Interviews with students and parents
  • Diagnostic tests for math and English
  • Psychometric tests for careers and fields of study

Then we plan.

  • Degree programs and broad career goals
  • Summer programs and universities
  • A step-by-step extracurricular and academic plan

Then we teach.

  • Standardized exams, like the SAT, ACT, TOEFL and IELTS
  • AP and college courses to build stronger résumés
  • Enrichment programs in things like coding, filmmaking and blogging

and finally the applications.

  • Letters of recommendation, school profiles, and transcripts
  • Creative portfolios and résumés
  • Crafting the personal essays
  • Choosing Early Decision and Early Action schools
  • Submitting the applications themselves
  • Preparing for college interviews
