I can help you craft an absolutely phenomenal and impactful college essay that will truly “wow” the admissions committee. With admission rates to top-tier colleges at record lows, having a stellar and memorable college application essay that sets you apart from the thousands of other applicants vying for the few available slots is absolutely essential - the essay must be nothing less than spectacular. I can help you present yourself as not just an excellent candidate, but as an absolutely *extraordinary* one!

I’m internationally recognized for my background and unrivaled expertise with college admissions essays. I graduated from MIT, and I was accepted into the MBA program at Columbia University. For many years, I interviewed students and provided evaluations to the Office of Admissions at MIT, which has given me keen insights into the admissions process. I know what admissions officers look for, and I can quickly discern which college essays and applications are effective, and which are not.

I firmly believe that everyone has a great story deep inside. My job is to help you reveal that story and showcase your accomplishments and achievements to the admissions committee. We want to show them how wonderful, impressive, and talented you really are!

I help high school students with the common app essay and with supplemental essays, and I work with college students as well as professionals with personal statements for graduate programs: business school, law school, and medical school. I provide strategy, insights, editing, guidance, advice, and inspiration.

I thoroughly understand how very important the college admissions process is to you, and I'm dedicated and committed to helping you gain admission to the college of your choice.

I look forward to working with you!

The best tutor!

Dennis came to my rescue and helped me write a beautiful personal statement for my business school application! He was very patient and kind throughout the brainstorming and editing process and I couldn't have asked for a better tutor. I will definitely work with him again on future writing projects.

Brilliant, Knowledgeable, Thoughtful

I reached out to Dennis to get help for my daughter with her college essays, and I’m so very, very happy that I found him. His expertise and experience was invaluable. He was extremely professional, thoughtful, conscientious, and wonderful to work with. He knows what goes on inside the admissions office, and he was able to help her create a great set of essays. Very strongly recommended.

Wonderful experience

Dennis helped me with my common app essay, and with several supplemental essays. He was amazingly insightful with helping me come up with great ideas for the essays, and guiding me through the entire writing process. The final results were really amazing and better than I would have ever envisioned. Thanks Dennis!!
