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.

Kind & Empathetic Tutor for Many Backgrounds

As a student from an educationally disadvantaged background, I have been struggling to get into medical school. Devastated after my second cycle of medical school rejections, I contacted Emily to help me work on a letter of intent for medical schools. Emily was kind and caring towards my situation, and most of all she was very positive and proactive in what I can do. She helped me create an essay that emphasizes the positive aspects of my application and fit for medical school, yet still speak of my circumstances very strongly. Luckily, I have a meeting with an admissions officer shortly...and for that I cannot thank Emily enough!

Amazing to work with and incredibly knowledgeable

Emily has done a wonderful job looking over my essays for medical school. She knows exactly what to focus on, what to leave out, and how to improve my essays to be at their finest. Emily's knowledge and experience has been helpful in answering my questions and pointing me towards the strongest aspects of my application to write about. Her suggestions for making my essays more focused and concise have been very valuable, and I have seen great improvement in my writing since working with her.
