He's also a bit of a comedian, so I highly recommend him if you need a laugh, along with the best college essay feedback you will ever receive. Miguel is no doubt the person to consult for college essay support. I will most definitely be booking more sessions with this guy between now and the end of the college app cycle. Well worth the costs. Highly Recommend.

We reached out to Gail to help my daughter with her College Essay. My daughter was recouperating from spinal surgery and needed some one to review her the 1st draft of her college essay. Her deadlines were looming. Gail was able to give my daughter simple techniques to improve her own College Essay so that it was perfect. My daughter is a STEM student and I know she will take the writing techniques she learned with Gail with her as she goes to college.
