About Jon

I love to work with students on their college and graduate school personal statements and supporting materials. I have coached over 125 students over the last nine years, with my students attending the finest colleges and graduate school programs in the country, including Harvard, Stanford, and the University of Pennsylvania.

Yet I pride myself on working with all types of applicants. What is unique about my style is my holistic approach to essay work. As a graduate of prestigious college and graduate school programs, I understand and appreciate the stresses of the application process. Rather than pretend that the stress doesn’t exist, I work with the student to examine the feelings emerging from the process and attempt to convert those feelings into an insightful and unique application.

I worked in the admissions office at my undergraduate college for all four years, and know the importance of the essay in the overall application, whether a student is applying to a large university or specialized graduate school program. Also, I think it is important for my clients to know that tutoring is a side business for me - my full time job is as an attorney, licensed to practice in the State of California. However, I love working with people on achieving their educational dreams and find this type of work extremely fulfilling.

Now is the time to start working on those applications. I look forward to hearing from you!
