Guiding Students and Families Through the US College Admissions Process


The College Express

Ila Fischer graduated from Scripps College in Claremont, CA with a B.A. in Foreign Languages.  She received her teaching credential from University of San Diego and earned her Professional Certificate in College Counseling from UC San Diego.  Ila was a teacher and student mentor for 16 years at Mt. Carmel High School in the Poway Unified School District. 

It was the experience of navigating her son through the college admissions process and watching other students struggle with the same issues that convinced her that everyone could use some extra guidance from a trained professional.  Since then, she has worked with students and their families throughout California.

Working with her sister, Cinthia Fischer, also a certified college counselor based in the UK, Ila has expanded her services to work with international students hoping to study at a US university.  In 2012, she attended the Fulbright Commission US-UK Advisor Conference in London, England and regularly travels to London to work with her students there. 

As an independent college counselor, her goal is to assist her families and students in every way possible through this very stressful but incredibly exciting period of life.
