Bio

As an essay editor at Interface Education and College Transitions, I have worked with students across the globe, in both high school and college, to help them develop personal and authentic application essays that have garnered acceptances from UCs to Ivy Leagues. As a marketing assistant and MCAT CARS instructor for The Princeton Review, I gained a comprehensive understanding of the college admissions process, including testing techniques and timelines.

I love working with students on their college application essays because it combines my love of the written word with my belief that everyone deserves to follow his/her dreams. Self-promotion can be tough, and admissions gatekeepers want to hear about what makes you special—and yet you can’t sound like you’re bragging. I work with students to help them write essays that highlight their best qualities in the right way, so your prospective colleges will know why they should want you.

I have been teaching, tutoring, and professionally writing and editing for 10+ years, from my time as a UCLA English major to writer and editor at publications like Santa Barbara Magazine. Words are my passion—my fiction has appeared in literary journals including Westwind, Glass Mountain, and (parenthetical), and my current work in progress is a young adult science fiction novel. My experience as an author makes me a knowledgeable grammarian in addition to my default mode as a word nerd, and in leading critiques, I create a nurturing environment and give feedback in a gentle, constructive manner. I love igniting my students’ passion for reading and writing in a way that makes them feel safe.

If you’re stumped about how to approach an assignment or the best topic for your personal statement, I will teach you how best to tackle those tasks and move toward your dreams—whether it’s an A on a test or your top university.

I can't say enough good things about Taylor! My son was up against a short deadline for college essays and she was so helpful with excellent advice. She also has a way of complimenting and encouraging, while correcting and teaching. We look forward to working with Taylor moving forward into university learning. I highly recommend Taylor.

Patient, Fast and Knowledgeable

Taylor has been wonderful helping my daughter with her college application essays. She's very patient and returns comments on the essays in a very timely manner. In fact, my daughter will send a draft to Taylor and then Taylor will send her comments back within one day, two at the most. Her comments are detailed and spot on! I would definitely recommend Taylor for essay tutoring.
