The Multi-specialty Tutor

I specialize in critiquing college admission essays. Not only will I critique student's essays, but I will also work with them to fill out a wholesome application. I make it a priority for students to stand out, be the person the admission person remembers after reading 100 applications. When students seek help on their college admission essay, I won't stop with the mere brainstorming and proofreading routine, but we'll work together to craft an application that tells a unique and distinct story because that is what will separate the student from the rest of the pack. Some of the students I [more]

ESL, TOEFL, Test Preparation, Italian Language Teacher

I was an Academic Adviser for the University of Pittsburgh for eight years (1972 - 1980), which required a thorough knowledge of academic and non-requirements to successfully complete the students' four years at university. I also worked with numerous students while teaching in Italy (1985 - 2005) who were interested in studying abroad for either their first degree or MA, PhD or post-doc. I helped them prepare their admission statement and person essay. I have also advised ESL students who studied with me at an ESL school in San Francisco (2005 - 2013) with similar requests. [more]

Academic Tutor Extraordinaire

I have been working as an academic tutor for ten years, primarily for high school students. I hold three CA teaching credentials, including English and teach part-time in a local private school as well as for my school district as a Home Hospital teacher. I teach writing all the time, and understand what colleges and universities are looking for in application essays. In addition, before I became a tutor, I worked as a copy editor for places like Dolby Laboratories--so I am very good at editing essays (for grammar, length, relevance, and more). In short, I can help students with the entire app [more]

Stanford PhD for reading, writing and college essay coaching

I have been coaching students in College Essay writing for the last two years -- most of my clients have engaged me to work with them throughout their entire application process, and they have all received offers from their "reach" schools. I have had extremely positive feedback from these students and their families, and I continue to work with some of them remotely on writing and study skills now that they are in college. My post-doctoral experience working in the program of Introductory Seminars for freshmen at Stanford (for five years) has given me a strong insight into what colleges are [more]
