What I offer

Financial Aid Academy for Students and Parents

The Financial Aid Academy is a program for students and/or parents that runs from August through May of each year (but you can join anytime). I guide families month by month through the entire financial aid process and assist them in maximizing their aid offers. Different levels of service available depending on how closely you want to work with me.

This program is great for high school seniors and their parents but any student/parent can enroll.

The Financial Aid Academy For Parents of rising High School Seniors

September 1st 2022 - May 31st 2023


The Academy will guide you step by step through the overwhelming financial aid process and help you get the best aid offers possible!

Families in the Academy, on average, receive an additional $20,000 in financial aid (on top of their regular financial aid offers) over the course of 4 years, and oftentimes even more!

Three different levels of service to choose from (BASIC, PLUS or PRO) based on your needs and payment plans are available.


Financial aid is not just a season it is something you need to work on year-round to maximize the aid you receive. There is so much more to the financial aid process than filling out the FAFSA

The FAFSA Guru will help you get all the aid you are entitled to and guide you every step of the way. 

In the Financial Aid Academy, you’ll be prepared to capitalize on ALL financial aid opportunities and stay on track to prevent missing important deadlines, through comprehensive monthly roadmaps, video content, scholarship sourcing, and live monthly webinars with The FAFSA Guru where she'll answer your questions, guide you through it all and help you get the most financial aid possible.

The PLUS and PRO levels include a higher level of service along with direct access to The FAFSA Guru for all your financial aid questions throughout the entire year.

Most educational consultants charge thousands of dollars for their services. The FAFSA Guru created a program that is affordable for all families, not just those with resources and money to pay the high cost of most private consultants. For an affordable monthy fee, your family could earn THOUSANDS of dollars in financial aid awards.

Client Testimonials

"Tina worked closely with my daughter, husband and me through my daughter's entire senior year. I strongly believe that is the reason she got accepted into every college she applied to. She helps with the FAFSA and the whole financial aid process."

Maeve Brown, Colorado 

"I do not know what we would have done without all of Tina’s knowledge. She helped us save thousands of dollars and made sure we were on track the whole year."

Tina M., California

"The Financial Aid Academy not only helped us understand the overwhelming financial aid process, but also got our daughter an extra $5,000 a year in financial aid for all four years! We learned how to write a financial aid appeal letter in the Academy, which is how she got awarded the extra aid. Not only that, but Tina provides scholarship resources every month so that we don’t have to search for them. I highly recommend the FAFSA Guru Financial Aid Academy. You can’t beat the price!"
