Patient, Experienced Multi-Subject Tutor (Harvard Grad & J.D.)

I have counseled hundreds of students -- including high school, college, and graduate school -- regarding the application procedure to numerous competitive colleges and graduate (e.g., PhD, J.D., and M.A.) programs. I am especially adept at extracting important experiences and adapting them to the contours of a professional, yet truly personal "personal statement." I myself have developed personal statements and application materials sufficient to receive acceptance and full-scholarships to PhD programs at, among other schools, Yale, University of Chicago, Duke, and Boston College.

Harvey Mudd/Cornell grad; multi-subject, empathetic tutor

I have worked with five separate high school students to help them prepare for the college applications process. Together, we generate a schedule and study plan that will improve performance on the required standardized tests. I also provide guidelines as to the content, tone, and structure of the personal statement. Finally, I also provide guidance about the heavier importance most students should place on financial aid, and guide them through this process. I do not discourage scholarship applications, but I manage expectations, and provide guidance about essay content tailored to the specifi [more]

1300 Five Star Reviews! Top 100 Tutor Nationwide for 2015

I have over five years experience counseling students on the college application process, from test prep to college selection, as well as guidance on the essay. I consider the college selection process as a part of education itself. When a student views the many programs of study available, it can open him/her up to the many possibilities life itself offers. Too often today students are not even aware of the tradition of liberal arts education, falling into a pattern of applying only to "brand names" they or their parents are already familiar with. That said, students I have advise [more]

Stanford-graduated Rocketry Engineer

I spent considerable time learning the many ins & outs of college admissions -- between essays, common application, CSS Profile, FAFSA, etc. As proof of competency in the college admissions profile process, I was accepted to all schools to which I applied -- including Harvard, Princeton, Columbia, Duke, and Stanford (to name a few). Since then, I have advised and helped several high schoolers applying to college, specifically in regards to guidance about essays. After enough time in education, you realize the one simple truth: there aren't any particularly hard tests, just lots of poor instruc [more]

Tutoring/Mentoring/College Prep from a Law Graduate Tutor
