SHOW TITLE: How Gen Z is changing the world
Apart from being a friend of mine, Pamela Donnelly is the founder and CEO of GATE College System, inc. , she is a very moral person and one of America’s foremost strategists in college admissions. She is also a #1 best-selling author and keynote speaker, and a summa cum laude graduate at Columbia University in New York City with her degree in secondary education.
Pamela is one of the most in-demand private SAT and ACT tutors in Los Angeles and began developing the curriculum which would grow to become GATE College System.
In 2012, she opened Valley Prep Tutoring Services, with eight tutors and now leads a team of forty top educators offering in-home counseling and tutoring services. Her first book, SWAT Team Tactics for Getting Your Teen Into College, went to #1 on the Amazon best-seller list in Education. Following the release of her second book, 4 Keys to College Admissions Success, Pamela became the go-to academic expert trusted by parents coast to coast . Pamela is a mother of three who reminds other moms that, “We’re all in this together. When her oldest daughter was applying to colleges, even with all her professional knowledge she was a bit overwhelmed. She doesn’t want you to have to feel that way, so she’s here to hold your hand through the entire process.”
Anyone who is a parent of teenage kids or is hoping to be, is affected by this. As a parent who went through the anguish of getting incredible references just to get my son into a private high school and then getting tutors and finally criss crossing the country for weeks visiting colleges, I am really pissed off with the college admission scandal which demonstrated that people with means can game the system. Therefore I am furious not because it actually hurt me or my son it any way but because it is repugnant, totally immoral, apart from being illegal.
