Racquel is an energetic and creative educator who has worked for more than a decade as an educator and STEM professional. After being accepted into several engineering programs at the world’s leading universities (including Vanderbilt, Brown, Cornell, and Carnegie Mellon), Racquel chose to attend Duke University (B.S.E) and The University of Rochester (M.S.E.). She knows first-hand what it takes to develop a competitive application and also understands the opportunities afforded by a great education.
The college admissions process is intentionally opaque. With counselors juggling their school responsibilities on top of dozens if not hundreds of students at a time, they do not have the time nor capacity to provide the personalized and intentional coaching every student needs. A City on The Hill allows Racquel to provide personalized, culturally relevant coaching to students as early as their freshman year.
