Online Services in Response to COVID-19


Options Solutions has been offering our services online for many years. Now, with COVID-19, we are a full-service virtual enterprise.

We mainly work with GoToMeeting and Skype, but we are also happy to accept your Zoom invites or to chat by phone. Wherever, whenever, we get the job done.

Our consultants and writing coaches are available to help you create an academic plan, review your executive function and study skills, explore your interests and post-secondary possibilities, and offer any of our services to you at home.

We are constantly evolving. Join our new Thriving in an Online Environment course or continue to hone your English skills with our Essay Essentials Workshop.  We are here to help you thrive over the next few months of uncharted educational territory.  See our virtual workshop calendar here. Check back often for updates.

We have reinvented our blog, too, to act as a resource for innovative, reliable, timely and FUN information for ALL families during this stay at home time.

Please reach out to our team. We are happy to customize a virtual program to fit your needs.

Feedback

I just want to say thank you for all the help that you gave me in regards to my university applications.

I’m very pleased to say that I got accepted by the four schools that I applied to: UBC, Quest, UVIC and SFU. I am so pleased. I’ve decided to accept UBC and hopefully get into the Coordinated Arts Program. Thank you for letting me know about that program.

I really appreciate all the help you gave me. I am not sure if I would be where I was without your support.

Edwin helped our son from the beginning of his exploration when he was unsure what he wanted to study and where. He simplified the entire process, keeping our son on track and focused on the big picture and the next step. He always was available to us when we had questions in between visits. Having Edwin as our consultant ensured nothing was missed or overlooked and the end result was that our son was accepted into his first choice school and program. Thank you, Edwin!

We are exceptionally happy with the information we received from Amanda and our overall experience at Options Solutions. We are looking forward to coming in again to follow up with Amanda and make use of the additional services available to us.

Edwin is a wealth of knowledge on post-secondary institutions in North America. He knows all the application deadlines and what courses are required for which programs. He is especially helpful in keeping us in the know on how to deal with inconvenient deadline changes and the little details that stress students out.
