Personalized program expanding nationwide to offer college admissions
guidance services for students and parents
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
SAN FRANCISCO (March 14, 2018) – As students are in the throes of classes, college is on the forefront of the minds for most parents of children in grades 8 through 12. For first- and second-generation immigrant parents, the road ahead is particularly foggy, foreign, and confusing. UCEazy was founded on the premise that there had to be a way to simplify the college admissions process for first- and second-generation immigrant families, including those of Indian-American and Hispanic dissent.
After successfully serving the needs of more than 500 families in California, UCEazy is excited to announce its availability nationwide.
Co-founders Vinnie Gupta and Vaitheesh Kolady, both first-generation immigrants, started UCEazy to level the playing field for students from first- and second-generation families. They sought to help families understand the nuances to secure admission for their children into top tier universities such as Stanford, Northwestern and Ivy League colleges.
“We are able to significantly reduce the stress for both the child and parent by providing personalized guidance for navigating the highly complex process of college admissions,” said Gupta. “UCEazy members have easy access to top-quality admissions experts and resources, as well as an understanding of the specific needs that immigrant families seek. With significant success stories, UCEazy will continue to emphasize its counseling and webinar programs nationwide.”
Even though the co-founders have had successful careers in the U.S. as immigrants, they struggled with understanding how to best prepare their children for college admissions in America. Through their journeys as parents, they learned that a new approach is needed to develop the special and unique students that top-tier colleges seek.
UCEazy differentiates itself by providing college admissions guidance geared towards first- and second-generation immigrant families. Types of services offered through affordable programs include:
? High-touch, high-quality, one-on-one counseling that is offered via video conference, via phone, and in-person.
? Educational seminars, webinars, and workshops that address topics often challenging to immigrant families and their children.
? Highly targeted program to improve creative writing skills. In addition to benefiting college essays, this program improves overall communication skills.
“We believe that the team at UCEazy is uniquely qualified to address the college admissions counseling needs of first generation immigrant families because we have personally experienced this journey with our own children,” said Kolady.
Parents and their children in grades 8 through 12 are encouraged to RSVP via the company website to attend free seminars and webinars.
UCEazy provides private coaching (counseling) to prepare students – from 8th grade through 12th grade – and their families for taking the next step to the college of their dreams. UCEazy also created a “Giving Back” Program to provide free college admissions counseling to students from low-income immigrant families. We seek both applicants as well as donors of money and time.
