About Mirela

Did you know that, for the first time in over a decade, Yale has recently changed the short essay prompt and format of the Yale-specific portion of the freshman application?

Did you know that this modification reflects a significant change in what Yale admissions officers are looking for in applicants? Did you know that Harvard and several other Ivies have also made similar changes to their admission criteria this year?

Over the past five years since graduating from Yale, I have helped dozens of smart, highly qualified students do their very best on the SAT, including the most recent version of the test which was introduced this year. I have also helped my students shine the best possible light on their talent and hard work in their admissions essays, personal statements and other writing.

As an essay editor, I focus on making sure that the student's voice comes through in their writing, while also ensuring that the school's requirements are being met. As an SAT tutor, I make sure that all the practice is relevant to the most recent version of the test, and that the student has a clear understanding of all the material tested.

I have also worked with many international students and non-native English speakers, who have seen major improvements in their SAT scores and in the quality of their essay writing.

Personally, before attending Yale, I have gained admission to 7 top colleges and universities in the United States and Europe, 6 of which have offered me full scholarships. During college, I have also studied and done research abroad at institutions including the University of Paris - Sorbonne and the University of Cambridge, UK.

For a student who is serious about her college applications and about getting into her reach college, it is critical to work with a tutor and essay editor who is always up-to-date on the most recent changes in the admissions policies and requirements of top universities. The most successful college applications are the ones that make a strong and consistent connection between the candidate and the traits that the admissions officer is looking for. Your SAT scores and your essays together must tell a coherent and compelling story that will make you stand out from the hundreds of applicants that your admissions officer will consider that day.

If you are serious about doing your best on the new SAT, and about getting into your reach college, drop me a line. I respond to all inquiries in a matter of hours.

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.

Marketing

My concentration in college at Yale has been in Behavioral Economics and Statistics, and I have been working full time in Marketing Analytics and Marketing Data Science for the past four years.

For two years of the past four, I have been working directly with my employer's clients, helping them shape their Marketing strategy and go-to-market approach. This required me to combine teaching with subject matter expertise in a way that delivered tangible value for clients, which, I believe, makes me uniquely qualified to tutor Marketing.
