The college and graduate school admissions process demands consolidation and concision. The essays present an opportunity to distill and distinguish. Together, we work to demystify and enliven the journey of reflection, expression, and revision. I guide you in a stepwise manner: we dig, expand, organize, synthesize, draft, whittle, refine, polish, then submit.

Our partnership and my assistance is framed by a holistic assessment of your unique story as a human being. We delve into talents and strengths alongside challenges and limitations – all of the aspects and experiences that shape who you are and will become. My feedback is targeted and strategic, drawn from an experiential base at elite institutions from the vantage point of both student and teacher.

I take you from bullet points to final draft, applying both granular and fine-grained attention to scope and detail. We craft for impact, then curate for precision.

My clients have attained admission at competitive institutions throughout the country, including the Ivies, small liberal arts colleges, major research institutions, prestigious women’s colleges, and the University of California system.

Sliding Scale: $150-200/hour. I ask clients to pay at the rate that aligns with their financial circumstances.

Please note: I reserve a percentage of my client load for people with limited resources. If this sounds like you, please get in touch.
