Pinpoint College Planning
Michele McNamee, the founder of Pinpoint College Planning, is committed to helping students and their families navigate the college application process and make informed decisions. As a mother of two boys, Michele became interested in the admissions process when her oldest son was applying to college. Knowing very little at the time, it became her goal to learn as much as she could about the process of applying to college, and her interest led her to pursue more education and certification and create Pinpoint College Planning. Michele also feels a strong sense of continuing to volunteer and support students in need with free counseling.
Michele McNamme, Independent Education Consultant
“At STEM Tutoring, we focus on two aspects of learning: mastery of specific math/science content and refinement of generalized study skills. The balance between these two aspects of learning results in skills that can be applied to the specific subject at hand and to the broader educational experience as well.”
Supplemental Education Transition Planning (SETuP) Program
“The purpose of the SETuP Program is to assist foster youth in successfully making the transition from high school to postsecondary enrollment, career, or service.”
