About Susan

Coming from Europe with a basic understanding of the English language, managing to graduate with honors from NYU and attend Yale University, I know that success comes from hard work and dedication. Writing and literature have been lifelong friends, and my dedication to them have proven successful in and out of the academic setting. Helping students (of all ages) and adults with writing, editing, organizing ideas, as well as writing personal statements for college and graduate school admissions for years have been of great personal satisfaction, and a means through which I could impart forwards the knowledge I have been given. While in university, I also facilitated writing and reading groups and enjoyed seeing a student’s hard work reflect his/her grades. I take great joy in being a part of a student’s success story!

I specialize in English, writing, editing, proofreading, grammar, and literary analysis. Whether you are working on a project, improving your writing skills, need help proofreading, etc., one of my goals is to challenge without overwhelming. My sessions are customizable to individual needs with one except—I will always provide feedback.

I also hold myself to high standards, so I will occasionally ask for feedback with the intent to incorporate a student’s learning style into my teaching methods.

I try to be flexible with my time. While I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I do offer make-up classes.

I look forward to helping you achieve success.

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.

College Counseling

College Counseling is about helping applicants tell their story of who they are, what their goals are, and what they want to be.

My expertise in college counseling comes from countless students I have helped with college and/or graduate school admissions applications over the years. My counseling has mostly focused on U.S. top-tier universities, as I have personal experience with the admissions process in the Ivy Leagues; however, I have also helped students with the admissions process in foreign universities, more specifically those in the United Kingdom.

I offer counseling services to clients seeking assistance on all aspects of the admissions application, personal statement, and/or help answer any questions related to the admissions process.

Susan was great at approaching my assignment. She helped figure out a great way to start my essay. She immediately knew how to start. Susan's knowledge was shown at every point. Her knowledge surpasses that of many tutors I have had before.
