ELT Consulting Solutions LLC was born out of a strong desire to Empower, Launch and equip students, parents and career-minded adults to Thrive.
We assist individuals select career paths that are best tailored to their passion and personality, as opposed to bowing to peer pressure in choosing a career.
We have seen major transformations after having a simple conversation with students who are constantly pressured by their parents to study hard and to make A’s and B’s.
From years of experience, we have established that most students do not understand the “why?” and “for what?” and, therefore, they are not motivated to make good grades at school.
We work with all students to determine their “Why” and “How” to achieve their academic and career goals. We provide tools for parents to adequately support their students in their academic endeavors. Consulting with students almost always guarantees a renewed sense of purpose and determination.
We continue to receive feedback from parents indicating that students who were once laid back and unsure about their future are now very excited and motivated about their future.
Specifically, our students are:
- Working hard without undue pressure from their parents
- Taking the initiative to consult with college and career counselors at their schools.
- Setting goals and a clear plan to achieve them.
Hearing these testimonials from parents gives us great joy and deepens our desire to reach more people and change more lives.

I had the opportunity to work closely with Cate as my mentor during my college years. She helped me find direction on my career path before and after changing my major. Cate was clear that success is derived from developing a short and long term plan. She involved me in participating in a career workshop where I got to practice my leadership skills. With her help, I was equipped to secure an internship and got a job thereafter. I am more than happy for her hand of support and words of guidance.
I was raised in a different culture; I did not know how to guide my son. I wanted him to be successful, but I did not understand the American school system enough to help him. All I could do was to send him to the counselors and teachers to ask questions. We both felt lost and helpless until we met with Cate. She provided tools that helped guide my son.
My child had a spark in his eyes after his first session with Cate. He started asking questions about what he needed to do to increase his ACT/SAT Scores. He had this new found drive to work harder. He knew why he had to work hard and what to ask for when they need help. He knew exactly what he wanted when it came to choosing a college and major. Class of 2023.
After coming to the US as a second-year college student from one of the best universities overseas, I did not understand the school system in the US and did not have guidance. I wanted to go back until I met Cate. She encouraged me to stick with it and gave me advice that helped me through college. I am now a Chemical Engineer, Class of 2018. I was hired before I graduated, credit to the advice I got from Cate.
I was tired of doing odd jobs. I needed help and a friend referred me to Cate. I was able to leverage the experience I had to create a college and career plan. After completing a vocational course that supplemented my experience, I am pleased to say I am doing what I love and getting paid well to do it.
I was about to graduate High school and did not know what it took to get to a college or what to major in. Cate provided the tools that I needed to choose a college and a major.
