Bio

I enjoy guiding students of all abilities to write effectively and eloquently. In an extraordinarily competitive environment for college and graduate school admissions (less than a 5% acceptance rate to the most elite institutions in 2022), it is essential to differentiate one's applications with exceptionally compelling personal statements and supplemental essays. This year, my students gained admission to many top-tier schools (undergraduate and law, business, medicine, social work, and...

I enjoy guiding students of all abilities to write effectively and eloquently. In an extraordinarily competitive environment for college and graduate school admissions (less than a 5% acceptance rate to the most elite institutions in 2022), it is essential to differentiate one's applications with exceptionally compelling personal statements and supplemental essays. This year, my students gained admission to many top-tier schools (undergraduate and law, business, medicine, social work, and music graduate programs) including Yale, Columbia, Duke, U-Penn, Vanderbilt, UNC-Chapel Hill, U-Michigan, Middlebury, Colorado College, U-Virginia, and UC-Berkeley. As an experienced writing tutor, I help students to discover and enhance their authentic voice and communicate their ideas and opinions in a coherent and articulate manner. Essential to this endeavor is the robust use of correct grammar and syntax.
I graduated from Duke University with a B.A. in English, and studied English literature in the UK at Oxford University and the University of Warwick.
In my professional career, I have done extensive writing, proofreading and editing. My first job after college was an entry-level position at a television station (the NBC affiliate in W. Palm Beach, FL.) where I wrote and produced public service announcements, consumer reports, and weekend news stories. Ultimately, I created, wrote and produced a daily news program, which aired immediately before the Today show on NBC. I have worked in financial services (in NY and London), which entailed writing correspondence and research reports. As an executive assistant to several CEOs, my duties included writing, proofreading and editing personal and professional correspondence, documents and creative writing projects, some of which were published.
When not tutoring, I enjoy golf, yoga, swimming, and rowing.

Common App Essay

Joslyn was very helpful with keeping my daughter's essays on track and answering the prompts. She gave good feedbacks on word choices and helping her with word limits. She was friendly and very comforting. Joslyn was also very responsive. Overall, my daughter couldn't have asked for a better person to work with during this stressful time.

She is very honest! Truly helpful and passionate tutor! I highly recommend her. She edited my paper on time like she said. She communicates well and she doesnt overcharge you. Very honest.!

Esther, 2 lessons with Joslyn

Joslyn has a way of connecting with our daughter such that even after the first lesson (set up just to help with a writing assignment) my daughter felt so much more confident.

Joslyn is patient and understands exactly what our daughter needs to work on, and; she brings out the ‘smart’ in our daughter. Thanks so much. We’re certainly scheduling lessons on a continuous basis with her.

Very Helpful!

Joslyn helped me with my graduate school application essays, and she was really helpful! She proofread more than 15 of my essays and provided a lot of suggestions. She was very flexible, and I would recommend her as a tutor. She made the application process much easier!
