Christine Chapman has been empowering students and guiding her client families through the private school and college admissions processes since 1995. She has coached and guided over 3,000 domestic and international students. She works closely with students and their families to help them find and secure the right educational opportunities for each student.
In 2012, Christine stepped away from her consulting practice for three years to become the first Director of International Students at a Boston area independent school where she worked in international admissions, college counseling, supported international students and families, and was responsible for SEVIS I-20 documentation and visa procurement assistance. Her role as Director of International Students gave her the opportunity to assist with institutional needs pertaining to international students with the annual fund, student health insurance, host family referrals and school-family-liaison work.
Christine has served as Chair of the Schools Committee, was a participating member of the IECA credentialing task force for schools consulting and served on the membership committee for the Independent Educational Consultants Association. She was a board member for The Cape Cod Montessori School, served as vice-president and secretary of The Sandwich Montessori Enrichment and Assistance Fund, and has served as co-VP on the Hopkins School PTA. She has also served as parent liaison coordinator for the HPTA and is a school council member for Elmwood School.
Christine Chapman is a graduate of the Sacred Heart School of Montreal and Skidmore College, and remains in pursuit of her master's degree at Harvard University. In her free time, she is with her kids, out walking the local state parks with her dog, and is an enthusiastic yogi and student of pilates.
Sims Yun graduated from Tufts University, where she majored in biology and minored in political science. During her university years, Sims co-founded and ran a tutoring organization that helped match international students to tutors and supported their adjustment to the rigors of academic life in the United States. These students were also supported in their standardized test preparation for the TOEFL, SAT I, SAT II, SSAT and ISEE. As a tutor herself, Sims has worked with over 100 students, developing and personalizing study materials and learning methods to help students build study skills, strengthen learning foundations, and ultimately improve grades and test scores.
After graduating from university, Sims worked as a director for two businesses where she streamlined business processes, developed and trained associate teams and interfaced with product vendors. She also worked as a legal intern, analyzing the viability of EB-5 based business projects, developing marketing materials for potential investors, building financial models and securing permits under California state guidelines.
In her free time, Sims has been reluctantly trying to enjoy time at the gym, but has assiduously (and quite successfully) avoided Christine's invites to attend yoga classes. Sims loves watching documentaries and HGTV and hanging out with her friends. She is a coffee addict and a little bit of a tea snob.
