Areas of consultations and mentoring

Disclaimer: Consultations and mentorship are neither coaching nor motivational sessions. Our only coaching motto is: work smarter, not harder!

building a career path
Selecting activities and creating an impressive CV
most popular choice!

First steps towards your own business
Applying to school/university in the United States
comprehensive consultations from A to Z!


The difference between consultations and mentoring is that they require different amounts of time. Consultations are one or a few meetings. Mentorship is a longer process, which includes meetings, email communication, setting goals, monitoring progress and cyclical evaluation.

During expert consultations we will touch upon the problem of your choice and deliver advice. Do you want to get into your dream university? Write your first academic text? Expand your CV? All of these challenges can be tackled within your consultations. We will help you deal with the most of the most difficult matters. Been there, done that.

During mentoring we will analyze your experience and achievements, evaluate your strengths and weaknesses, set a goal plan, and move towards its execution. Thanks to the fact your work will be monitored and cyclically evaluated, you will stay focused on your initial goal – whether it’s starting your own business, leaving for university to the United States or developing an academic career.
