Anthony’s passion for coaching stems from his drive to ensure that deserving students get access to quality education, regardless of their background. Anthony knows how valuable guidance during the college admissions process can be, especially for those with limited means or those who lack access to formal guidance. He strives to do everything in his power to help students access quality education and unlock their full potential.
When it comes to coaching, Anthony’s greatest strength is his ability to holistically approach students as human beings, identifying their premier qualities derived from every facet of their lives that have contributed to their growth and development.
When Anthony isn’t coaching students, he enjoys woodworking, especially the notion of creating sophisticated objects from raw materials.
With over twelve years of experience in higher education, Anthony is au fait with the admissions process. Anthony has served as an admissions reader for UC Berkeley. Additionally, he was also an Admissions Counselor at Syracuse University, Assistant Direct of Admissions at University of Richmond, and Assistant Director of Admissions at Earlham College. He has interviewed prospective students, overseen diversity recruitment, and rendered both scholarship and admissions decisions. These experiences have allowed Anthony to gain a strong understanding of what admissions officers are looking for and in turn, what candidates can do to make themselves stand out.
As a coach, Anthony strives to empower his students, ensuring they make an informed decision on which college to attend. Anthony is aware of challenges and hurdles in the admissions process and works diligently with students to overcome them. Anthony feels that every student has a unique story to tell and helps students identify their unique strengths and weaknesses, allowing their individual voices to shine through. He loves helping students navigate the entire application process: from building college lists to crafting personal statements to preparing for the interview, Anthony’s goal is to be with Quad applicants every step of the way.
Outside of Quad, Anthony enjoys singing, playing piano, and traveling.
