About Kristen

It's no easy feat to be accepted to Harvard or UPenn.

Perhaps, more difficult to get into a joint BS/MD Program. Brown's PLME has an acceptance rate just over 3%.

I have been a featured college admissions expert on U.S. News & World Report, Mass Mutual, TheStreet, Investopedia, and numerous national publications.

My services go beyond proofreading essays for grammar and adding a few commas. I guide the student in crafting an exceptional personal statement that will capture the attention of the admissions committee.

I work with students to formulate an admissions strategy unique to their goals and the college they're seeking admission to. I guide the student through every phase of the application process, including the Common App, essay development, interview prep, resume, FAFSA, and financial aid/scholarship plan.

My students have been accepted to the most prestigious universities in the country, including: Harvard University, Cornell University, University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University, Vanderbilt University, Emory University, Georgia Tech, NYU, and more.

My specialty includes working with students seeking admission to competitive universities, premed students pursuing a joint BS/MD degree, and international students.

9-11th grade
Coaching for both students and their parents. I work with the student to strengthen their academic/extracurricular profile so they are a stronger candidate when it is time for applications.

12th grade
One-on-one guidance on every aspect of the college applications, including: essay brainstorming & proofreading, creating a balanced college list, and tips to provide an edge in the competitive application process.

Transfer Students/Grad School Candidates
One-on-one guidance on every aspect of the application, including creating a stand-out personal statement.

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

I have over 12 years experience working with students on the college application process. I have a BS in Engineering from Stony Brook University and an MBA from Emory University. By utilizing the valuable branding and marketing strategies I learned while getting my MBA and drawing from my experience working with students over the years, I created a series of detailed action items that help applicants go the extra mile, communicate their value, and stand out from the masses in the college application process.
