Teaching vs. Counseling
There is a fine line between a counselor and a teacher. The counselor enables discovery and the teacher disseminates information. The ideal educational
consultant has the ability to make a seamless transition from one to another. Peggy Baker has the credentials and experience in both professions. By teaching SAT* and ACT** prep courses and tutoring students in the Lehigh Valley for over 20 years, she brings a breadth of experience to her post-secondary and college admissions counseling. Peggy Baker meets with admissions officers, tours campuses, and explores campus environments. This personal insight provides a student with a much deeper understanding of a college than a catalog or website can convey.
Peggy Baker has contributed to various news articles, most recently to the US News & World Report, Best Colleges, December 7, 2018: What a Liberal Arts College Is and What You Should Know.
