SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With the new school year in full swing, college is on the forefront of the minds for most parents of children in grades 8 through 12. UCEazy was founded on the premise that there had to be a way to simplify the college admissions process for first- and second-generation immigrant families.
Co-founders Vinnie Gupta and Vaitheesh Kolady, both first-generation immigrants, started UCEazy to help families understand all the nuances to secure admission for their children into top tier universities such as Stanford, Univ. of California and Ivy League colleges.
“We are able to significantly reduce the stress for both the child and parent by providing targeted guidance when applying for top-quality college admissions,” said Gupta. “UCEazy members have easy access to top-quality admissions experts and resources, as well as an understanding of the specific needs that immigrant families seek.”
Even though the co-founders have had successful careers in the U.S. as immigrants, they struggled with understanding how to best prepare their children for college in America. Through their journeys as parents, they learned that a new approach is needed to develop the special and unique students that top-tier colleges seek.
UCEazy differentiates itself by providing college guidance geared towards first- and second-generation immigrant families. Types of services offered through affordable programs include:
- High-touch, high-quality, one-on-one counseling that is offered via videoconference, via phone and in-person.
- Counseling programs for parents and students to ease the transition to high school.
- Educational webinars geared specifically for parents that take them through the process and expectations of the high school journey in the U.S.
- Seminars, webinars and workshops that address topics often challenging to immigrant families with children in U.S. high schools.
“We believe that the team at UCEazy is uniquely qualified to address the college admissions counseling needs of first generation immigrant families because we have personally experienced this journey with our own children,” said Kolady.
Parents and their children in grades 8 through 12 are encouraged to RSVP via the company website and attend an upcoming free seminar:
“Think Differently to Get into Top Tier U.S. Colleges”
- Saturday, Nov. 18 from 10:30am-12:00pm, Shirdi Sai Parivaar, Milpitas, CA
In addition, informative and interactive webinars that cover topics such as “Navigating a U.S. High School” are offered to those who are enrolled in the UCEazy program.
UCEazy provides private coaching (counseling) to prepare students – from 8th grade through 12th grade – and their families for taking the next step to the college of their dreams. UCEazy also created a “Giving Back” Program to provide free college admissions counseling to students from low-income immigrant families. We seek both applicants as well as donors of money and time.
