Parker Educational consulting


The college admissions process grows more complex every year.


As online applications and resources streamline the admission process, more students are applying to more colleges every year. But acceptance rates continue to drop.


At Parker Educational Consulting, I help you navigate this maze both by helping you find the schools that are right for you, and by helping you present yourself as the right student for them. If you’re in the Asheville-Charlotte-Greenville triangle, I’ll come to you. If not, we can work via phone, Skype, or whatever platform you’re happy with. You and I will get the best results if we start our conversations in the tenth-grade year or the summer following. It’s never too late, though, and I can help you at any and every stage of the process.

What Parents Are Saying

Our son was applying to multiple upper-tier colleges, and David helped him to tailor his essays to each. With David’s help, our son received several acceptances and scholarships and is going to attend Kelley School of Business at Indiana University as a direct admit. Working with David was a great experience.

When our daughter Grace started looking at colleges, we turned to David Parker for help. David met with us to review Grace’s interests and help build a list of colleges for her to pursue. He worked one-on-one with Grace, sharpening her interview skills, as well as coaching and encouraging her through the essay portion of the application. David’s expertise and professionalism have been indispensable in Grace’s hunt for the perfect college. Thank you David!

Having David guide our son through the essay-writing task of college admissions was a lifesaver. David was instrumental in helping our son choose a topic and angle that represented his strengths in the best light. Having David proofread also helped us keep the peace during a very stressful time! Our son was admitted to his first choice university. I highly recommend working with David!
