Stressing over college application essays?

Over the past several years, I’ve helped dozens of students write the essays that got them into the colleges of their dreams (Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Stanford, among many others). These essays can be especially challenging for even the best writers: the stakes are high, and the essays demand writing skills that are different from those taught in most English classes.

Stressing over college application essays?

Over the past several years, I’ve helped dozens of students write the essays that got them into the colleges of their dreams (Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Stanford, among many others). These essays can be especially challenging for even the best writers: the stakes are high, and the essays demand writing skills that are different from those taught in most English classes.

As you might imagine, a little bit of coaching can go a long way when it's time to tackle this difficult task.

I can help at any stage of the writing process, from initial brainstorming to final revisions, and have experience with Common App and Supplemental essays, as well as the UC questions. What I'm *especially* good at is helping a student find the perfect voice to tell a story that reflects their unique personality and perspective on life.

I've also helped people successfully gain admission to physician assistant programs, nursing programs, dental schools, and MBA programs. My high school students have won awards and recognition in writing contests at the regional and national levels.

great teacher

He is so nice and super patient when I can’t figure out what to talk about. He is an insanely good writer and If I could recommend him to everyone I would. I appreciate the time and effort he has put in to help me. He makes the conversations flow and he’s very easy to talk to and understanding when you can’t fully think of what to say. 100% choose him as a tutor, you’ll have the best essay and writings. He makes you feel comfortable and always checks in on how you are doing which especially helps with mental health.

Amazing teacher, worth every minute

Nathan was so patient and understanding as he guided me through my grad school applications. He is a very insightful instructor! Thanks to Nathan, I learned new ways to communicate in writing. Before scheduling a meeting with him I felt so lost and confused about how to improve my writing. However, after receiving his guidance, I now feel more confident in reaching my academic and professional goals. Nathan is the real deal, you are guaranteed to level up!
