English/writing Tutor

I worked as a college admissions and financial aid counselor at a high school in the Los Angeles Unified School District for over 12 years. During that time, I edited many student essays and wrote many college recommendations. My students were accepted at colleges all over the country, from Ivy League schools to local colleges. I was a member of the California Student Aid Commission, representing secondary schools in California. I held volunteer positions with College Board and College Scholarship Service. As the college counselor, I recommended colleges for students, suggested summer hig [more]

He gives valuable insight from a critical point of view in order to maximize improvement. He does more than correct simple grammar mistakes; he suggests different ideas, concepts, and details in order to perfect each and every essay. Overall, he is an amazing tutor."

College/Grad School Application Essays: These essays are NOT like ANY kind of writing students usually do in school, and most of the time students are going about their college essays the wrong way. I am extremely skilled at not only helping a student create the kind of essay colleges are looking for, but also doing it in such a way as to draw out the student's unique voice, which is really what schools are hoping to see. I'm very different from a typical college counselor who may know what colleges are looking for in an admissions essay. First of all, since working with students on essays--a [more]

UCLA Professor / SAT ACT Expert

Ever wonder about the differences between a UC, CSU, and community college? Not sure if you will qualify for financial aid? I have worked with hundreds of students in choosing colleges, applying for financial aid and writing application essays. Students also appreciate my coaching on how to choose classes and how to schedule study time in ways that make it virtually impossible to be anything other than successful in college. I have been counseling high school students and teaching SAT prep since 1998. A large section of the curriculum that I created includes college counseling in the areas [more]

Patient and Knowledgeable SAT ACT Preparation Expert

I have a College Counseling Certificate from UCI. Each student is different, so I get to know each student on a personal level to prepare an individualized college admission plan, not a "cookie cutter" one. I have worked with many students with planning their high school curriculum with their "target" college in mind; strategically choosing colleges; staying "on-top" of many college admissions deadlines; preparing best possible application packages; writing eloquent and polished personal statements, and applying for financial aid. Statistics show that most students apply to an average of 15 [more]

Patient Ivy League English/Writing tutor

I have an MA and a PhD in English, and am pursuing an MFA in poetry. I have written many of my own college and graduate school admissions essays, as well as helped others with theirs. I have taught college writing courses for the past five years, and have also written recommendations for students. Most recently, I have taught business and professional writing--a course that requires students to complete cover letters and resumes--so I have experience with this aspect of the application process as well.

ASVAB Specialist, Electronics, English, Reading, Writing, Math SAT

I have attended 5 different colleges all with outstanding grades. I have worked with a multitude of college counselors to get the right classes and tests for my degree programs. The college preparation process is one that is critical if you want the right school and degree program. Pre-testing is necessary for proper entry to the school and will give the student a boost off the starting line to make for a smooth transition into the school and throughout the program. Working with a counselor before the enrollment process is mandatory to plan out each semester (quarter) to make sure the classes [more]
