Introduction

Hi, my name is Naomi and I have been working in the field of education for over 20 years. I completed my elementary education in New York and my middle and high school in Tokyo, so I consider myself fully bilingual. I hold graduate degrees in Counseling and Cultural Psychology. My passion has been to assist students looking to attend college in the United States. I have worked extensively in California education systems, helping students transfer from community college to a university and have assisted students in every step of their pathway towards their goals. I look forward to helping you!
