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!

Mika Simoncelli
Harvard University
Hi! My name is Mika and I'm a sophomore (currently on a leave of absence) at Harvard University majoring in Art, Film, and Visual Studies. I know the college application process can be overwhelming, and the idea of finding the perfect school for you can be even more so! My journey to Harvard took some twists and turns (including a gap year and some transfer applications), so I've spent a lot of time thinking about what exactly I want out of my college experience and what makes a school a good match for me. I applied to college with intended majors that ranged from art and art history, to math, to english, and was particularly interested in interdisciplinary programs that would bridge my art practice with my other interests. I also applied to most schools with an art portfolio, and am here to support fellow artists in finding a place that will nurture you and help you grow. Outside of being a college advisor, I also work as a creative writing teacher, and I DJ for Harvard's student-run radio station.
