Thank you for visiting my page! My name is Ilana and I am a PhD student at the University of Virginia studying clinical psychology. Writing can be a difficult process, and I would love to help make it more accessible and enjoyable for you. I particularly enjoy helping students with the preparation of college essays, including common application essays as well as supplemental or "optional" essays.

Areas that I can help with include: generating fresh ideas that capture your unique voice and experience, improving the organizational structure of your essay, and proofreading for grammar and spelling errors. My extensive experience as a writing tutor, coupled with my fresh perspective as a graduate student and recent college grad, make me the perfect person to help you nail that essay.

Background and philosophy:
I have extensive experience with nonfiction and autobiographical writing. I began my writing career as an intern for the Miami New Times. As an undergraduate at New York University and then Wesleyan University, I honed my love for writing by taking several English courses and contributing to student-led publications. At Wesleyan, I served as a teaching assistant and writing tutor for college students and adults enrolled in a prison education program. Working with a diverse range of students has provided me with invaluable insight as a teacher. It has also taught me the importance of tailoring my tutoring style to meet each student’s individual needs. Since then, I have honed my academic and professional writing skills through publishing and reviewing professional manuscripts and book chapters related to the field of clinical psychology. I currently tutor high school students in English, with an emphasis on editing class essays.

While writing college admission essays can seem daunting, it can be a rewarding and enjoyable experience! I am passionate about helping students succeed in the college admissions process, and would love to help you achieve your college admission goals.

A note about working with me-- I will wait up to five minutes after our session has begun, but out of the courtesy to other students I will need to charge you for any additional lateness after the first five minutes. Additionally, no-shows will be charged $15.

Highly recommend:)

llana was great help shaving down my college essay! Before I worked with her my common application essay was 900 works and need to be 650! I had an hour session with her and we easier shaved it down to meet the requirement. Ilana also was very helpful when reading through my essay. She helped clarify sentences and make my overall essay flow! I would highly recommend llana if you are looking for someone to work with during your college application process!
