College Guidance

Brooks has been helping kids navigate the college application process since 2016. He encourages his students to engage in deep self-exploration early in the process, helping them to identify and sharpen their interests and passions before committing to a 4-year program of study. In this way, Brooks serves as a life coach, helping students to think about goals then map out how to achieve them. Often, Brooks helps students plan gap years to give them more time to understand themselves and explore what they want.  

Brooks is affiliated with Compass To College, a boutique firm headquartered in Palo Alto. He runs their Special Needs practice and regularly writes for the CTC Blog.
