Not afraid of Virginia Woolf or math formulas!

In addition to writing the letter that led to myself winning an academic scholarship two decades ago, I have coached more than a few students through the process of writing successful college application essays. Sometimes called a "personal statement"-- this document needs to show how the writer is a unique, special, and deserving applicant who is likely to make the most of her/his educational opportunity. The "judges" who read these essays may be looking over a hundred or more candidates' pieces, so YOUR words need to distinguish you from the crowd. Every sentence has to amplify the message [more]

Passionate About Helping Students Learn Math and Ace Tests

I have helped over 100 students find and get accepted to the college or graduate school of their choice. I have also created internship programs at top companies like McKinsey, Google, and LinkedIn.

I have worked with Michigan State University and Stanford University as well to ref [more]

Experienced English Tutor: Essays, Term Paper Emergencies, and ESL

I have assisted many students with their college entrance essays and personal statements for both undergraduate and graduate programs. Basically, you need to tell the school why you are unique and what you can add to their student body as well as how their program will meet your unique needs. Stating simply that you wish to obtain a degree in order to make more money is not what the school wants to hear. Instead, the school wants to know what unique projects you have previously completed, and how a degree from their university will help you achieve something special. The purpose of the essay o [more]
