About Carla

I've worked in admissions throughout college and continued to counsel high school seniors through the college application process upon graduating as a private college counselor at two companies, one of which I'm still at. I have over 10 years of experience workshopping personal statements at the undergraduate, graduate and professional level. I have also tutored for many high school level subjects (English, writing, Math, Biology, Chemistry, U.S. History) in addition to standardized exams including the SATs and SAT 2s. For college counseling, my services include college personal statement revisions, organization of college application materials, thorough list of candidate schools, guidance for test-taking dates, deadlines, tips, and overall strategic packaging of one's application that is minutely tailored to each school.

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.
