In my many years as a tutor, I have helped students advance themselves towards new academic and professional phases of their lives. Primarily, I have helped mid to high-level executives in operations, tech, finance, and marketing prepare for challenging interview scenarios and improve the quality of their LinkedIn profiles, resumes, and cover letters. Having worked as an executive IT recruiter early in my career, I established a keen understanding of what interviewers and managers are looking for in qualified candidates. I work with many students and have a firm understanding of the competition. Furthermore, I have recently specialized in assisting students with their pre-med college application essays and interviews. I have been able to help these students synthesize their skills and drives into strong, concise persuasive statements that have landed them offers from some of the U.S.'s top medical schools. In addition to medical school applications, I have also helped MBA candidates construct impactful personal statements that have resulted in offers from schools like NYU, USC, Penn State, and Pepperdine.

Amazing writer and editor

Amalynne was a genuinely amazing tutor. She took the time to hear the story I wanted to convey in my nursing applications and put it into an amazing narrative. She really helped me formulate a great essay I was very confident to submit to applications. I’m very appreciative for all her hard work and passion she applied into my essay. She is very reachable and works very well with your schedule!

Outstanding Tutor and Writer!

I fortunately had the opportunity to work with Amy for the past couple of weeks, writing numerous essays for various graduate programs. Amy offered a unique approach to each individual essay, providing valuable advice for how we should address each topic. In addition to her organized approach, Amy’s ability to develop meaningful, concise essays is absolutely phenomenal. Amy asked vital questions that enabled me to understand my core initiative for applying to graduate school. Addressing this core initiative ultimately allowed me to construct deeper essays to yield a greater impact. In addition, Amy offered advice that extends far beyond the admissions essays; her tips and guidance have enhanced my overall writing ability and I will use the knowledge I’ve gained to develop my essays moving forward. Due to Amy’s efficiency and superb writing ability, I highly recommend working with her for college admissions essays, or for any essay in general. I’m glad I had the opportunity to work with Amy and I’m confident that my chances of acceptance have increased tremendously due to her help and expertise!
