Natalie Tedards
University of Chicago
Hello! My name is Natalie, and I can’t wait to start working with you! I graduated from the University of Chicago in 2020 with my BA in Comparative Human Development. While at UChicago, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Rome through the Gilman Scholarship, and this upcoming year I will be returning to Italy to teach English on a U.S. Fulbright scholarship! Over the last five years, I have worked in a variety of roles supporting students in the college application process: teaching a 6-week crash course in applying to college to rising seniors in a college-prep program; working in a Chicago high school as a College Advising Corps advisor; and, just this past summer, supporting a UChicago alumnus apply to medical school. Give my history, I have experience advising at all stages of the college application process, and I am particularly well-versed in essay-editing and navigating financial aid. My advising style is focused on building a college list around discovering your personal college “fit” (from academics to community to financial aid) and then bringing your individual story to life in each part of your application. Working together, I hope to answer your questions, create a game plan, and ultimately ease your stress as you move through this exciting process!

David Querusio
Boston College
Hi there! I have been working as an admissions counselor at NYU for the past four years. While at NYU, I also earned my master's degree in Higher Education and Student Affairs. As a first-generation student, I was excited but also very intimidated by the college application process. I ended up staying close to home at Boston College and loved it. So much of being successful in the application process depends on knowing how to navigate the requirements and expectations of universities, and I am happy to help you every step of the way!

Marisa Peryer

Marisa graduated from Yale University with a degree in biology and science history in May 2021. She considered herself a born-again premed while on campus—juggling her role as a first-year counselor with freelance journalism in her spare time. Marisa was also the editor in chief of the Yale Daily News Magazine, and her writing has appeared in CNN, Popular Science, Salon, the Columbia Journalism Review, among others. She has coached students through the application process for four cycles, and students she has mentored have been accepted to top schools, such as at Stanford, Yale, Princeton, and Columbia. Marisa thoroughly enjoys watching students grow and become more confident in their applications, and she looks forward to joining you in the college admissions process!
