Volunteer Instructor Spotlight - Rebecca Carroll

Rebecca CarrollWith families worrying about the escalating cost of higher education, Rebecca Carroll and her crew at The Coaching Educator are in their 10th year of providing a unique one-stop-shopping approach to admissions and financial aid. That includes trade schools as well as colleges and universities.
The company finds tens of thousands of dollars for an individual client, and sometimes hundreds of thousands. 
Carroll says, “We help families with college selection, scholarships and grants, ACT and SAT prep, interview coaching, academic success coaching and career advising, plus additional services for athletic and performing arts scholarships.”
For those who want to be scholarship athletes or performing artists, Carroll and her team build the websites that are among TCE’s services. 
A New Hampshire native with two adult offspring of her own, Carroll has a master’s degree in education with school counseling specialty from Notre Dame College and taught at Landmark College, Keene State College and Park University at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana while also doing school counseling. She started The Coaching Educator in 2009.  
With fewer than half of Idaho high school seniors enrolling in college within a year of graduation -- well short of the state’s goal of 60 percent -- finding the right college at the right price appears to be getting harder to do.
“As a parent, I feel for families and the pressures they face,” Carroll said. “As a businesswoman, I see an opportunity to make a living helping people from all walks of life address a major problem. It’s a calling. It’s really a very satisfying thing to be doing.” 
Rebecca has been offering her classes, COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS & FINANCIAL AID and THE PATH TO COLLEGE ATHLETICS for 3 years.  This year, she is introducing a new class!  DAVE RAMSEY FOUNDATIONS IN PERSONAL FINANCE - HIGH SCHOOL EDITION. (what teenager, or adult, for that matter, doesn’t need this??)  All of her classes are 2-for-1, so parents can join their student to gather all of this incredible information.
