I have been an independent college counselor for five years. I have worked with students from private and public schools. I am experienced with the entire college application process from helping formulate a college list to brainstorming college essay ideas, proofreading essays and filling out applications. I especially understand the UC system -- I am currently a reader of freshman applications for a premier university in the UC system. I have read the UC application for the last four years. I also read the common app for a non-profit in Palo Alto. Therefore, I have very good insight into the UC application and the common app.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
