About Elite Advantage Prep
About Anna (Chief Consultant)
My name is Anna and I have over ten years of college admissions consulting experience in addition to being a past admissions interviewer for my alma mater, Georgetown University. I have a Certificate in Independent Educational Consulting from UC Irvine Extension and am a member of NJACAC and an associate member of IECA.
My mission is to make applying for college as transparent and stress-free as possible for families through my holistic approach towards college admissions consulting. I genuinely care about my students and dedicate myself to helping them make the right choice. I am more than a consultant - I aim to be a mentor for my students through challenging themselves to offer the best they can.
To learn more about my background, feel free to contact me directly.
Meet the Team
Fadhal (Storyteller and Passion Project Mentor)
Teacher. Debate coach. Tutor. Little brother babysitter. No matter how fast I run, I can't seem to shake working with youth. After graduating from Harvard University debt free due to a full scholarship I spent time teaching 6th and 8th graders in Baltimore and Washington, D.C. history through a lens of social justice. Though I can definitely think of 5 students who may disagree because they (fairly) think I'm corny, my classrooms have received recognition from both Barack and Michelle Obama on different occasions. I also have extensive experience mentoring young people during their college application process and has even worked in Harvard's admission office. I am now one of five McCourt Scholars awarded a full scholarship to Georgetown University to learn how to influence education policy and make schools more equitable for all of our students. You can find me singing badly on the piano or in a comic book otherwise.
Bonnie (Academic and Personal Growth Mentor)
My objective is to foster creative thinking throughout the college application process. Having guided my three children, and other students, as they navigated through these sometimes cloudy waters, I have gained quite a bit of experience in assisting students with their personal growth and reflection throughout this process. Throughout the years I have visited many different schools, at many academic levels, and I am happy to share my experiences with student and parents.

She seemed to immediately 'get' who my daughter was as a person and took great care to lead her essays in a direction that would reflect and respect my daughter's values. Anna provided clear and detailed outlines to keep writing on topic. Her follow through and follow up throughout the process were flawless and she is an extremely personable and approachable professional.

"Anna was an incredible resource in helping me really extract those key moments and themes in my life that shaped me as a person that a lot of the times was difficult for me to even see for myself. The final product ended up being something that I was truly very proud of. "
The essays and everything were always groomed to perfection, and I never submitted an application that I wasn't proud of because I knew that each supplement and each essay all together represented who I was as a person. And I'm really grateful to Anna, for being able to pull out.
