Knowledgeable, helpful and encouraging

Karen clearly articulated to me what was needed to develop a powerful personal statement. Her edits were insightful and helpful. Her advice was incredibly encouraging and she helped me feel confident about my writing, when going into it I was very nervous as it's been years since I've been in school. I highly recommend working with her!

Karen is helping our daughter with her college applications. Karen is knowledgeable, meticulous, well-experienced, detail-oriented, and a wonderful tutor. Apart from the guidance on application formalities, she engages her students in a very thoughtful way so that kids operate in an anxiety-free mode, and she motivates kids to keep their self-esteem high during this stressful process.

Personable and Great Mentor

I had a session with Karen K to help me with my personal statement for medical school. She was well prepared and already had different ideas for me to perfect my statement prior to my session. Not only was Karen knowledgeable but made me feel comfortable enough to talk about my insecurities when it came to my statement. 10/10 would recommend. In fact, I've already booked a second session to review my final draft. Thank you Karen!
