FAQ

What differentiates this service from others?

I have a PhD, 15 years of teaching college writing experience, and am a former college Writing Center Director. As a result, I am uniquely trained in helping applicants frame a narrative that is genuine, interesting, and effective. I will help you package your academic achievements, extracurricular experiences, and personal background into an essay that shows not only your strengths but what sets you apart from other applicants.


How do you communicate?

The process of applying for college or graduate school is difficult enough, so we want to make our communication with you as easy as possible. Your advisor will communicate digitally by whatever method you prefer—email, phone, Skype, zoom, or FaceTime—or we can set up a time to meet in person if you live in New York City area.


What if I receive feedback but don’t know how to proceed?

I make sure that the applicant never feels lost or confused by speaking about the feedback either online or in person. And if questions come up after you speak with me, just shoot me an email. I will be glad to respond. Don’t worry, I won’t leave you hanging!


Who are your clients?

I work with applicants near and far. Our clients include high school and college students in the U.S. as well as international students interested in coming to the U.S. to study.


 When can I get help?

I help applicants at any stage of their writing. Whether you are staring at a blank piece of paper or are at the final stages of the writing process, I can help you brainstorm, revise, and edit your work. I will help give you the best chance possible of getting admitted to your dream schools.


What kind of feedback will I receive?

I will provide you with constructive written and oral feedback that encourages forward momentum. You will first receive my written comments by email and then have a meeting, either virtually or in person, to discuss my suggestions and plan your next steps.

If you have a question that wasn’t answered here, please contact me and we’ll be glad to provide a response.
