The Galin Story

Galin Education was founded by Zach Galin with a simple goal – to help parents and students navigate the complex world of college admissions. From there, we’ve grown to provide college admissions assistance to students and parents with individualized academic tutoring, test preparation, one-on-one college counseling, and admissions workshops. At the center of everything, we’ve kept our focus on one thing over the years – creating relationships with each family we work with. Some may call it Midwest nice, but we call it The Galin Difference.
