Tutors English, Writing, and College Essays/Counseling

I work with high school seniors to write successful college application essays for individual colleges, the Common Application or the Coalition, and dual degree BS/MD programs. As an English and writing tutor, I work with students to write in their own voice with passion, pride, and humility about their stories, while also proofreading as needed. To complete the mountain of essays, I teach students how to individualize responses for specific colleges and prompts while using polished core statements about their goals, interests, and accomplishments. Identifying potential "best-fit" colleges fo [more]

Let an Ivy League Ph.D. help you craft the perfect college essay

I have spent the last nine years helping students achieve admissions to top colleges. My specialty is helping students find their voice and convey their story to the admissions officers. As a former interviewer for Dartmouth College, I have seen the admissions process from the inside. I have also been through the process myself, and I understand the stress and anxiety caused by college admissions. I graduated from Dartmouth College with high honors and earned a Ph.D. from Cornell Medical School. I understand how opaque the system seems and how hard it is to know what the schools are looking [more]

Master the English Language - It's not as Hard as it Looks!

College counseling involves guiding students for suitable courses in college. I have completed my Bachelors and Masters Degrees, and am in college for my teaching credits. I have helped several High School students with their college application essays, and guided them with regard to choosing their streams of study, how to write effective statements of purpose etc. I have excellent writing and editing skills, and a knowledge of grammar, syntax, and punctuation. I am able to guide students on how to organize their thoughts on to paper in an effective way. [more]

ACT & SAT Tutor - BS, MA, MBA tutor

I provided college and career counseling at the University of IL. We would discuss with students issues such as entrance exams, placement tests, enrollment procedures, CLEP/AP exams, ratings of schools, essay writing, and mock interviewing. I mostly work with students now on the ACT & SAT. For the ACT, we will go over content that you must know for English & Math. For ex, there are specific reasons when to use a comma. Most likely, you were never taught that. In order to improve your score on the English section, you must learn and study that content. We will work on specific strategi [more]

Business and Technology Trainer

I have spent the last 12 years in higher education, working as a professor and as an academic dean. I worked closely with admissions and the Registrar, helping support the admissions and registration process. I worked closely with students who were considering college at my university to look at their interests and skills to see if they would be a good fit for the university, and whether they would be a good fit for their program. I advised both new and continuing students in these capacities. [more]

Veteran college instructor/writing coach/ACT/SAT tutor

As a high school English teacher who has helped many juniors and seniors craft their college application letters, I am qualified to help students through all the stages of the writing process, from brainstorming, outlining, crafting and revising. I have a solid grasp of what college admission officials are looking for in student admission essays (originality, honesty and mature insight) and--perhaps, even more importantly--what turns them off (cliches and trite platitudes). I can help students write essays that pop and demand attention. [more]

Additionally, I have been a college application adviser for the last three years at a private tutoring firm. Besides working professionally in traditional print publishing, I specialize in academic tutoring for high school and college prep students, particularly those looking to expand their skills in English, reading, la [more]

180 LSAT Scorer! (Plus physics, calculus, writing, and more)

With almost 7 years in the admissions test-prep industry, I've been right on the front lines of the admissions game. From personal statements to recommendations about when to submit, I am very experienced with helping students navigate the ins and outs of the application process. Also, I've been admitted to 3 elite universities (one of them being an Ivy League school at the undergraduate level), and I am personally familiar with what it takes to submit a competitive application package. My greatest specialty is with the law school entrance exam, known (and dreaded) by soon-to-be law students a [more]
