Bio

An article in a major daily newspaper dubbed me a “College Matchmaker.” My clients have been accepted to UVA, Boston College, UNC- Chapel Hill, Wake Forrest, William & Mary, Davidson, Washington & Lee and many other exciting schools.

Six years ago, I started a business as a College Admissions Consultant helping individuals gain acceptance to competitive colleges and graduate schools. An article in a major daily newspaper dubbed me a “College Matchmaker.” My clients have been accepted to UVA, Boston College, UNC- Chapel Hill, Wake Forrest, William & Mary, Davidson, Washington & Lee and many other exciting schools.

I graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in Psychology from a small liberal arts college and earned my Master’s in Women’s Studies and Psychology from Oxford University. Additionally, I’ve completed part of the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (Psy.D) program at the George Washington University where I received a merit scholarship.

Prior to starting my business, I volunteered as a mentor and tutor as I learned the ropes of college admissions. Over the years, I’ve tutored students and taught small classes on how to write stand out college essays. As a College Essay Writing Coach, I provide clients with information collected directly from College Admissions Reps as well as from campus visits, books, and articles. I don’t rely on a standard cookie cutter “here’s what I did so it ought to work for you too” approach. Every individual I assist has different skills, strengths, and weaknesses, so I use a variety of interactive methods so you learn how to showcase yourself successfully. I have worked with teenagers, college students, and adults who’ve been out of school for awhile.

Oxford University is known to produce graduates who are strong writers and think independently. Students study with professors one on one or in groups of two to four. Using techniques encountered in Oxford’s tutorial mode of instruction, I teach students how to write stand out academic essays, college essays, and creative pieces. I’m a published writer with years of experience and have nine postgraduate writing courses under my belt. Be it a research paper or a short story, I can show you simple techniques to organize your composition and improve your grade. I specialize in teaching clients how to write admissions essays for college and graduate school. From the brainstorming to the editing, I guide clients through the writing process to produce a unique essay. We all have our own path; our own story to tell, and my job is to help you find and articulate it.

If you have questions about Psychology, I have answers. In addition to my academic background in the field, I have experience as a Senior Research Assistant at Oxford University's Department of Psychiatry where I helped develop new cognitive behavioral treatments for eating disorders. I’ve been credited in peer reviewed journals for my contributions to several research studies. I’ve also worked at treatment centers for eating disorders and substance abuse. I was accepted to graduate programs at Harvard University, Columbia, Oxford University, Cambridge, Boston College, and the George Washington University.

While I’m new to the Wyzant site, I’m certainly not new to tutoring. Here’s what one client said about working with me: “Paige helped my daughter with the application process. Her approach was targeted and personal. She also kept her on track to complete the necessary forms/applications to meet deadlines. Top qualities: Great results, personable, high integrity.” – Mary G.

Please contact me for more information or to set up a tutoring session. If you're interested in scheduling a lesson outside of the hours I've listed, I may be available. I'm also willing to accept requests for sessions on short notice. Hope to hear from you soon!

College App Essays

With the deadline quickly approaching, Paige did a fantastic job helping my child review and edit his college app essays. So grateful she could fit us in just before holidays.

Paige is fantastic.

Paige is thoughtful, clear, and concise. She provided excellent guidance for my son who was struggling to complete several essays. I highly recommend her for anyone needing help with college essays and the common app.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Paige was a great tutor! Not only did she help me reword a majority of my Common App essay, but she also helped me trim it down and make it easier to understand. I would definitely recommend her for anyone who needs college essay help.
