Diana Stutz, M.A., NCC
A native of Ridgefield, CT, I have been working with high school students and their parents, since 1997. I started my private practice primarily because I really enjoy working with adolescents, and I realized that no one in the counseling field was able to thoroughly address all of the college admissions process from A-Z, both practically and emotionally.
• Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Art History from Syracuse University
• Master’s Degree in School Counseling from Fairfield University
• Nationally Certified Counselor, NBCC
• Connecticut State Certified Counselor
• Former High School Counselor
• Former Executive Director for The Princeton Review
My career in college admissions and test prep began with The Princeton Review, where I was the Executive Director of the Westport, CT, office. My extensive knowledge of the SAT, ACT, PSAT, and SSAT enables me to tutor all subjects of all tests. After The Princeton Review, I attended graduate school and then worked for the CT public school system at the high school level. It was during this time that I decided to blend my college admissions knowledge, test prep expertise, and counseling skills into a private practice where I could help students and their parents with every facet of high school counseling and college admissions.
Planning a future for one’s education consists of more than just one piece: high school transcript, extracurriculars, test scores, college lists, applications, and essays. I have created a distinctive arena where I can consult on every part of the process, really getting to know each individual student, making the entire event more cohesive and effective.
