About Emily

I graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Pennsylvania in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology. At the University of Pennsylvania, I was one of a handful of students selected to train as a writing tutor and work for the Center for Critical Writing. I tutored for several years at the Center for Critical Writing, helping hundreds of college students with application essays, class assignments, and other writing needs.

At Harvard Medical School, I served as a member of the admissions committee with full voting privileges. This gave me experience not only reading hundreds of medical school essay, but also discussing these essays with the admissions committee. I gained a better understanding of how essays are interpreted in this setting.

As a writing tutor, my primary goal is to help you succeed with your current work, whether that be an application to college application, graduate school application, thesis, or other college coursework.

Please contact me for your needs in writing, grammar, English, and college counseling!
