Steven Mercer, Ed.D.



Mercer Educational Consulting is an independent educational consulting practice that assists clients with their higher education search, application, and selection process. In recent years competition and the high-stakes nature of college admission has increased dramatically, often resulting in more stressful and less productive experiences for overwhelmed students and busy families.

I am an experienced educator with an extensive background in selective college admission, counseling, teaching, and academic and non-profit leadership. Utilizing my expert knowledge and a thoughtful, balanced philosophy, I can help you make the best of your high school experience; apply to colleges that fit you as an individual; and transition successfully to college, graduate school or a gap-year experience.

It is never too early to start getting answers to your questions about college. Call me today at 310.773.3449 and let's get started.

Online College Counseling

I place a great value on building authentic, individual working relationships with each client and family. Because many students who work with me live across the globe, on the other side of the country, or just across town, easy-to-use, modern technology allows me to uphold my high standards. I frequently work with domestic or international students via state-of-the-art video conferencing technology which gives us the ability talk face-to-face, collaborate on documents and essays, plan calendars, and conduct college research even from a distance. Some students chose to work together exclusively via video conference, while others combine in-person meetings with the convenience of online meetings. To learn more about working with me online or in-person please contact me send me an e-mail at or call me at (310) 773-3449.
