“First he gives an accurate evaluation of which schools might be interested in your son or daughter and their level of interest. Just as in the regular admissions process, some schools might be a reach but are still possible.
Next and what I found most important is that he knows so many of the coaches well. They give him feedback on what their recruiting situation looks like. Your son or daughter will then know where they have the best chance of 1) getting recruited and 2) playing. It s such a huge advantage and basically the equivalent of going into the NFL draft knowing who 12 of 15 teams ahead of you are drafting.
So much of the process is patience and steadfastness as the pieces of all the team puzzles move into place. If things work out early decision or action, that is great, but if they don’t then the tennis recruiting landscape changes dramatically. Teams gain and lose players and suddenly have open slots and the only way to anticipate where those slots may be is to know how the recruiting process is shaping up. Coaches and other players won’t share it with you. But they will share the info with Tim because his goal is really to match up both sides, help players and coaches without compromising one coach or program to another.
For my daughter who is at Williams, and was our first through the college process, we used SAT, college counseling coaches….all very expensive. Next time we are working with Tim, and no one else. No private SAT companies, college counseling services…. This is really the only service that gave us substantial value.”
