Discuss Goals & Next Steps
To start the process, all prospective students will receive a phone consultation with our college counselor. The purpose of this consultation is for our team to learn more about you: your interests, academic record, and admission goals.
Figure Out A plan of Action
Your Zinkerz counselor will advise you on your curriculum, academic interests, extracurriculars, supplementary test preparation and courses, and college visits. Your counselor works with you to develop a college list that balances your applicant profile with your future education goals, and creates a plan of action to ensure you gain admission to schools of your choice.
Essay & Application
COMPLETE APPLICATION PACKAGE
Your counselor will help you create a winning application package. You’ll work with your counselor to brainstorm and develop essays that answer the required prompts, and our editors will help you edit your final draft. Your counselor will also help you choose recommendation letters and showcase your extracurricular activities.
SEND YOUR APPLICATIONS
Let us worry about your application deadlines. Your counselor will compile and review your application package, ensure you’ve completed all the necessary documents, and prepare you for any interviews. Once you hear back from schools, your counselor will help you select a college or university that best fits your interests and potential.
Our exceptional counseling service has consistently delivered results. Our counselors work closely with each family to develop a one-of-a-kind plan to create competitive application packages to the top colleges and universities in the country.

Zinkerz helped simplify one of the most stressful and difficult decisions I’ve ever had to make: choosing which universities to apply to. With Zinkerz’s help, my whole application process was straightforward and stress-free. Without the guidance and support of Zinkerz, I would not have realized my potential.
Zinkerz works miracles. My son had a difficult time in high school, and so we weren’t sure college would be an option for him. Zinkerz helped my son identify his goals and become a competitive applicant at schools we never thought possible. A year later, we are overjoyed to see my son at a college where he is not only happy but excelling both academically and socially. Zinkerz opened the window of opportunity for my son, and helped him find his motivation to continue building his own path, thank you Zinkerz.
I refuse to watch the Hamilton musical. It’s a strange rivalry to develop. The Red Sox-Yankees rivalry makes sense as Harry Frazee sold Babe Ruth to the Yankees to finance his own play, No No Nanette (which isn’t even that good of a play), so the Red Sox have viewed the Yankee success as...
Each year, around the end of December, children all around the world gather together with their families for the most anticipated event of their years: Kurtis Conner’s annual Christmas movie review video. For those who do not celebrate this event or are unaware, Kurtis Conner is Canada’s most-mustached man, the mayor of Kurtistown, and...
Teaching someone math seems like it shouldn’t be that hard. In theory, you should be able to just do the math in front of them, explaining your steps along the way, and then they will be able to do it too. But in practice, it’s not that simple. It turns out that teaching math...
Quick! Off the top of your head, where did Albert Einstein go to college? Was it Yale? Harvard? If you said anything other than ETH Zurich or the University of Zurich then, sorry, you’re starting off this blog 0 for 1. But that’s alright! Babe Ruth struck out in his first at-bat, and he...
Karly, the Chief Information Officer at Zinkerz, an online education company, is thrilled to reveal the results of their students’ most recent SAT examinations in December. According to reports, the verbal portion of the exam was difficult, and some students struggled with the older reading passages included in the exam. Despite this, the scores...
The dramatic advances in AI and synthetic reality are taking the world by storm. Recent articles highlight the progressive nature of AI. The web is being taken over by articles entirely written by AI, advertisements, essays… you name it, and the newest AI can do it. Only a few weeks ago, this was not the...
How does Spotify know what music sounds like? All of our Spotify Wrapped came out earlier this week and whether your most listened to artist was Daft Punk or a good musician like Olivia Rodrigo, it makes sense that the app was able to tell the genre of music that you listened to the...
The past two weeks have been a concerning time for parents of school-aged children... And this is not specific to any grade. Whether you have a child in kindergarten or one applying to (or attending) college, you, as a parent, are hearing and reading about some alarming reports. You may even analyze specific pieces...
