About Ilana


Bio

My name is Ilana and I am a Ph.D. student studying psychology at the University of Virginia. My program consistently accepts just 1-2% of total applicants each admissions cycle (I was one of five chosen out of 244 applicants), and I am thus familiar with writing competitive admissions essays.

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...

My name is Ilana and I am a Ph.D. student studying psychology at the University of Virginia. My program consistently accepts just 1-2% of total applicants each admissions cycle (I was one of five chosen out of 244 applicants), and I am thus familiar with writing competitive admissions essays.

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. I have a demonstrated track record of success- my students have been accepted at Dartmouth College, Cornell University, the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business, the University of Southern California, UC Berkeley, UCLA, Bard College, and others.

I will take your application to the next level by 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.

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!
