When education is good and delivered in a stable, positive environment, it can do wonders for your child - developing their social skills and focus, fostering their curiosity and ability to digest information, and broadening their options for the future.

If you’re a parent, you’ll know how vital these elements are for your child to be happy and fulfilled. The good news for members with children living stateside is that Quintessentially’s education experts are bringing their comprehensive service to the USA, and they’re marking the occasion with a special launch event on Tuesday 16th October at 6:15pm on New York’s Upper East Side. The evening is an excellent opportunity for members and their friends and family to share their impressions with fellow parents, and also to connect with consultants and advisors on a broad range of educational needs. If, as a parent, you feel overwhelmed or unsure of the choices available for your school- or college-age child, you’re not alone.

Co-founder of Quintessentially Ben Elliot says, “As a father, I understand the perils and pitfalls of choosing exactly the right environment for my sons' learning and development. The key is to have an advisor who fully appreciates your child's needs. Like any parent, I just want to see my boys happy and thriving, and I feel it is vital that we offer access to expert educationalists for our members."

Quintessentially’s specialist team has 25 years of combined experience and is passionate about supporting students to reach their full potential. Their success stories speak volumes about the work they do. They’ve helped smooth proceedings for countless families from all over the world, before, during and after a big move and change of school; sourcing tutors to get a child up-to-speed in a new language perhaps, building confidence, strengthening learning techniques, or getting through a tough application process, for example.

The team’s approach is entirely student-focused and impartial, with no affiliation to any learning institution or establishment. They have a global outreach and are growing, with local experts on the ground in their two key locations: the UK and the US. Jess Harris, Head of Education for Quintessentially Education in London, believes that “it’s important to work with educational professionals who can enthuse and connect with young people, no matter what the child’s educational background”. These experts include top-flight advisors, consultants and tutors within the education sector, including professors at Oxford, Cambridge and Harvard.

To find out more, join London-based Head of Education Jess Harris and her partner agency representative and Director of College Counseling, Natasha de Sherbinin from A List Education, who will be hosting Quintessentially Education’s US launch, on 16th October 2018. The evening will begin with a drinks reception at 6:15pm, and will be followed by an introductory talk, and the chance to make those all-important connections. Find us at 54 E 81 Street, NY 10028.
