TIECED CONSULTING WHO WE ARE…WHAT WE DO Today, as we look at the news of economic distress and the life conditions of people, along with the hope engendered by the leadership qualities of a new President, we are reminded of the absolute necessity of individuals, students and education systems, and non-profits and businesses to optimize their abilities in accomplishing their declared missions, dreams, goals, and aspirations. We are happy to do our part by offering education, non-profit and business development consulting services. We are specifically highlighting our Educational Empowerment Program (EEP).
EDUCATIONAL EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM EEP improves access and academic retention amongst historically low income and educationally disadvantaged individuals by enrolling them into university and college systems and providing supportive services to improve their overall quality of life. The EEP goal has been to change the face of education consulting services from middle/upper class families and households to that of individuals and families who would not normally be able to afford an educational consultant.
WHAT IS AN EDUCATION CONSULTANT? An Education Consultant is a skilled professional who provides counseling to help students and families choose a school, college or other program that is a good personal match; one that will foster the students academic growth. An EEP Education Consultant provides coaching, assistance with school and program selection, registration, financial aid and other support services to ensure the students success
YOUR OPPORTUNITY… The Education Empowerment Program is designed to specifically provide a supportive source for those seeking to change their lives and pursue their education. Our team of educational consultants will navigate YOU through the enrollment process, financial aid and other supportive services to keep YOU focused and motivated.
