About Fatima

I'm both a journalist and a creative writer. I've been published in many national outlets. Writing has been my passion since I was a child, and it's something I'll be doing for the rest of my life. Currently I am working on a book of poetry and some journalism pieces. I did my undergrad at UPenn, majoring in Political Science and minoring in History. Both of these are writing intensive subjects, and throughout my college career I have honed my skills in academic paper writing. I also graduated from the Journalism School at Columbia University, and since then have gone to be frequently published.

Although I primarily work with applicants to college or graduate programs, I can help with a wide variety of writing and editing--whether it's academic, creative or personal. I would be happy to provide references (my clients have gotten into some amazing schools) and writing samples. I truly love words, and totally nerd out on how to put them together in the best way possible.

I can meet in person or work with you online. Lets chat about your writing and college application concerns and make a game plan!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

College Counseling

I'm a full-time published writer, editor and journalist. I went to UPenn for my bachelors in Political Science and History, and then went to Columbia, for my masters in print and literary journalism. For both of these applications I had to write many personal statements and scholarship essays, so I am deeply familiar with the Ivy League application process.

Three years ago I had my first foray into college counseling when I worked with a student on her college applications from start to finish. We brainstormed essay ideas, wrote multiple drafts, and edited every sentence to perfection. She is now at Dartmouth on a full ride. They read part of her essay at orientation in front of the whole class. Since then I have worked with applicants to most of the top schools in the US, including all of the Ivy Leagues, as well as Caltech, MIT, John Hopkins and Georgetown. I have also worked with successful applicants to second tier schools, and state schools.

I'm truly passionate about creating beautiful works of writing and telling a well-crafted story. I hope you will consider trusting me with this sensitive, difficult, but ultimately rewarding process. Many thanks.
