Building solid foundations for successful futures.
Charles Haas

Educational Consultant

Why use Haas Educational Services?

1) Personal knowledge of every major type of higher learning institution.

I have been a student at the four main kinds of post-secondary school: the local community college, the small progressive liberal arts college, the large traditional science university, and the distance-learning online university. I can give you the inside scoop on the benefits and disadvantages of each from actual first-hand experience.

2) Years of professional experience working in education and with children.

College Testing & Tutoring Coordinator. College Instructor. Teacher. Tutor. Youth Counselor. Tutoring Company Director. Test Evaluator. Camp Archery Director. I bring the skills, knowledge, and experience of all these positions to ensuring your educational future is as bright as it can be.

3) A solid educational background.

I graduated early from Drexel University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology (magna cum laude and with distinction from the Pennoni Honors College). I also earned a Master of Arts degree in Educational Studies and an MBA in Management and Strategy from Western Governors University. My other educational achievements include minors in Communication and Mathematics and a variety of certifications.

4) The first Certified Specialist in Psychometry (CSP) in the state of New Jersey (one of only two in the state).

In addition to a strong, varied background in education, I spent several years as a vocational psychometrist and consultant. I am qualified to administer, score, and interpret the results of a variety of assessments to help determine which majors, careers, and colleges are best suited for individual students. There are currently fewer than 250 professionals worldwide with the CSP designation.

5) A belief that some of the best knowledge and advice about higher learning can only come from someone affiliated with a college or university.

I currently coordinate the testing and tutoring departments at a local community college, where I also teach courses in the STEM division.

Many professionals giving college advice have not been students in years, if not decades. A major advocate for lifelong learning, I am currently finishing my dissertation for a third graduate degree: a doctorate in education (anticipated August 2016). I can give you better advice on being a student because I am a student.

I know what goes on at colleges and universities because I see it every single day as both a higher education professional and a student!

6) Advice from someone who will spend enough time with you to actually get to know who you truly are and what you personally need for a successful future.

You could easily go to several different professionals to get all the services I offer, but due to the limited amount of time spent with each, they can only provide you with advice for the person you appear to be from one or two meetings, not who you really are. When you come to me, I help you navigate through the myriad aspects of college admissions counseling (picking a major, finding the right school, crafting excellent application essays, etc.), as well as prepare you for the SAT. Because we will spend a good deal of time together on a variety of activities, I will get to know the REAL you (not just what is written on your transcripts).

7) I come to you!

You don't need to spend hours each week traveling to SAT courses, writing tutors, and college counselors. I will come to your home (or, if you prefer, a local library or other quiet public place).
