Do you need help with college or graduate school admissions- brainstorming and refining admissions essays, filling out applications, and/or preparing for interviews?

Students whom I have helped to brainstorm and revise college application essays now attend top univiersities, including Columbia, Fordham, George Washington, Johns Hopkins, Maryland, NYU Stern, Penn State, Purdue, SUNY Binghamton, and Wisconsin. I draw upon a wide variety of materials, customized to fit student needs. Before becoming an admissions advisor, I interviewed applicants to Georgetown while working for the U. of Cambridge's publishing firm and William & Mary, and then apprenticed under a leading college admissions author and consultant. During the day, I teach English at a private school.

I would love to help you maximize your success in the admissions frenzy! Thank you for considering my services!

please note- This year, I am working with clients on the North Shore of Long Island on weekends and in Stamford during the week. Thank you.

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.

College Counseling

After graduating from Georgetown, I was asked to interview and evaluate freshmen applicants to my alma mater. Eventually, after serving as an internship coordinator, I figured out my graduate degree goals and chose Columbia. Following grad school, I worked for Johns Hopkins CTY, started to tutor successfully, and taught on LI, but was encouraged to consider becoming a college admissions consultant. As a result, I spent a year conducting research for and learning the business from a prominent college admissions consultant and author before going out on my own. My clients last year were accepted by excellent colleges and universities, including Johns Hopkins, Maryland, NYU Stern, Maryland, Penn State, and Wisconsin.

Writing

I can help you to write better history essays (DBQ, FRQ, thematic, CCOT, Comparative, etc.); research, format, and analyze data for research papers (history, government, or psychology); and write school admissions statements. My research, analysis, and writing skills were honed at Georgetown and Columbia, plus in a few extra graduate courses at William & Mary.
