Our Service

Whether you are just beginning the college prep process or you are looking to augment the services provided by your high school college counselor, Milestone can help. At Milestone, our comprehensive suite of services is designed to meet the individual needs of students and parents. Whether families choose a holistic approach to college prep or desire specific expertise or knowledge, Milestone offers the flexibility to create a plan and select services that work for you.

Our Story

Milestone is a business that evolved over time, mainly in response to the needs of our customers. Initially, we began by tutoring students for the ACT and SAT and helping with college essays. But, then, it became clear that students and their parents wanted more. Eventually Milestone was born and now we are a great team of tutors and advisors who help guide students through the college process. What’s unique about Milestone is that we offer assistance at any time throughout the process. Some students retain our services for years while others pop in and out. So, regardless of where students – and parents – are in the process, the Milestone team is here to help.

Mission Statement

At Milestone we are in the business of guiding, advising, and coaching students and their parents through the challenging college admissions process. Our team of tutors and advisors consistently deliver professional expertise and personal support to students and parents who choose services based on individual need. Through this unique approach we help students learn, grow, and realize their potential. Together, we create possibilities and empower families to confidently navigate this important journey. With our guidance, Milestone students ultimately become the pilots of their own success.

  • From day one, I felt a personal connection with Jen and her staff.  Jen spent a lot of time with me personally and doing research on which schools best fit my wants and needs.  It was reassuring to know that she was always on my side, looking out for my interests.  Simply, I think she is the best person to help anyone struggling with the college decision process. In the end, I received the prestigious Trustee Scholarship at Boston University. Without Jen’s guidance, I don’t know that I would have ever explored this school or applied for the scholarship. I am currently enrolled at BU and couldn’t be any happier. I thank Jen every day for all her hard work and for an amazing role model and friend.

  • Just wanted to thank everyone at Milestone for everything they have done to help our daughter achieve the ACT score she needed to get into her first choice college. It has been a long process, however, Jen was there whenever we had questions, concerns or just needed guidance. Thank you so much for your help!

  • Milestone not only helped me improve my ACT scores by 4 points but also put me in the best position to get into the colleges I applied to. Thanks to Jen, I was accepted into my dream school and received scholarships I would have never known were available.

  • ACT tutoring at Milestone was the best investment I ever made. My daughter attended the ACT workshop prior to her first ACT in February. It was extremely helpful and she went into the test feeling very confident…. I will use Milestone for any other tutoring needs and we will be scheduling an appointment to assist with the college essay!
