About Jeffrey

I am a history professor and published author who has spent 20+ years helping students express their ideas more clearly. I have a BA from Oberlin College and a PhD from Yale University, and have taught at both small colleges and large universities where I have assisted thousands of students with their writing.

I have worked with Ivy League students and community college students, with students who received perfect scores on their English tests and with students for whom English is a second language. I have helped students develop their ideas, structure their essays, and revise and polish their prose.

My specialty is helping students write (and re-write) college application essays. I have helped students get into USC, Berkeley, Cornell, Wellesley, and many others. If you are having trouble writing your Common Application Essay, or are just looking for some feedback and suggestions to help you improve your essay so that you can get into the college of your choice, you need my assistance!

Successful brainstorming

Treating my son with respect and asking the right questions made enormous progress on his essay topic. My son was happy with the session.
