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 process of reflection and expression. 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.

How it works:

I offer both remote and face-to-face assistance. Feedback and review is done in a collaborative platform, such as Google Docs or Microsoft Word.

A comprehensive support package includes: initial consultation, 2 rounds of intensive essay review, phone and/or email check-ins throughout, and a final evaluation. The package rate varies according to the number of schools you are applying to. Additional services, such as resume oversight, are available at an hourly rate.

For those who wish to work together on an a la carte basis, my rate is $250/hour.

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