Biography

About Tim Ravey

After graduation from UC Berkeley I worked in transportation doing industrial engineering and finally corporate training where I counseled and provided education as career development for thousands of hourly and managerial employees. As a UC Berkeley alum, I also worked as a volunteer to help UC Berkeley Undergraduate Admissions at high volume outreach events for schools in the Bay Area. After retirement from FedEx I taught middle and high school as well as being a part-time seasonal application reader for UC Berkeley Undergraduate admissions. After 2 years of teaching, I began full time as an admissions officer for Berkeley until my retirement in 2019.

Philosophy

Parents and applicants often feel overwhelmed and intimidated by the college application process. I'm calm, welcoming and a mature person who starts by offering my complete attention to your unique situation. I am your steady resource always at hand to guide you and reassure you as we work together to ensure a successful outcome.

We start with a review of your current knowledge of the process, where you are chronologically in that process and what educational goals you have set. We will identify helpful interests and achievements as well as potential obstacles to reach those goals. I will show you how to benefit from applying broadly and that the reality for college admissions is actually a buyers market for those who know how to shop and also have a strong “purse” of spot-on applications.

Finally, we will focus on what college admissions is looking for. I can show you how to present that in ways to positively grab the attention of an evaluator.

With UCEAZY, you are always in the driver’s seat and with me as your navigator we can reach your destination on time, under budget and ready to succeed at the next level.
