ABOUT US

OUR STORY

We are an independent education consulting company that helps applicants plan their journey at the school, college or postgraduate level. Our founders, who grew up in the US, were struck by how differences in global education systems and cultural expectations led to knowledge gaps, confusion and misconceptions among students from all over the world. They founded The Red Pen to help applicants make informed choices about global education opportunities, while providing holistic guidance to navigate complex admissions processes.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

At the heart of The Red Pen is our commitment to finding the ‘best-fit’ institution for every applicant. We are committed to helping our applicants and their families by first understanding their cultural background, financial plans, long-term goals, interests, academic performance and professional expertise.

OUR TEAM

Dr Kimberly Wright Dixit (PhD, Duke University and BA, University of California, Santa Barbara) and Namita Mehta (M.Biochem, University of Oxford) lead our 70+ member team. Our strong group of consultants come from diverse backgrounds and possess a wealth of experience from the US, UK, Canada, Europe and India. Their extensive knowledge of admissions processes, customised approach and collaborative efforts set The Red Pen apart.
