Ian Parker, College Counselor

Throughout his career as an educator and tutor, Ian has found that there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to college. As a Master Tutor at The Princeton Review and instructor with the Fullerton and Long Beach school districts, he has discussed with families the value of conducting comprehensive analysis and collecting data to assess each student’s needs, goals, and interests when making academic decisions.

While this sounds very thorough (it makes sense to note here that his major was in economics, his minor in philosophy), Ian possesses just the right balance of genuine drive to emotionally support students and families while helping them come to logical decisions regarding their best-fit school. When he’s not working with students, Ian keeps up with the world of J.R.R. Tolkien, hikes with his dog, and can offer astute opinions on what makes a good Philly cheesesteak.
