Good communication is crucial between the educational consultants, parents, and student. “It should be a collaborative process,” says Virginia Bush, CEO of VJB & Associates. “We are available to our clients 24/7, year-round.” However, parents also have to be open to the advice they receive. “Some parents have high expectations, and some parents have unrealistic expectations,” says Vanessa Wilcox of Wilcox Educational Consulting in New York City. “I never say ‘no’ to a school because sometimes a student can get motivated and have a great year, but I try to be fair and get parents to take a fresh look at their options.”
