About Heather

I have nearly 10 years of experience working in admissions at various colleges, including Claremont McKenna College, Western University of Health Sciences and the University of Washington. Over the years, I’ve read thousands of freshman, transfer and international applications; interviewed hundreds of students for admission; and networked with admissions counselors and professionals across the country. I have also worked with students who are already enrolled in college, so I know what employers and graduate programs look for in recent graduates. As a Technical Recruiter on Amazon’s college team, I reviewed the resumes of thousands of aspiring Software Developers and helped them through the interview process and beyond. And at Western University of Health Sciences, I counseled and recruited undergraduates from across the country on admissions for highly competitive dental, veterinary medicine, nursing, physician assistant, and other graduate health sciences programs. I will make sure you’re on the right track for college and beyond.

I offer college planning, admissions advising, and application help for high school and college students. For high school students, my work focuses on helping you present your best self via personal statements, interviews and other application materials. I also work with high school students on a more long-term basis to help you create a college list and find a college of best fit. For transfer students, I help you find the major or program that fits your interests and help you craft the perfect essay. And finally, I work with students on small projects on an hourly basis, either virtually or in-person. Services offered include: academic advising, pre-health or pre-med advising, interview coaching, resume review, essay assistance.

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.

Career Development

I worked as a recruiter for new college hires and interns at Amazon, reviewing thousands of resumes. I was charged with deciding who went through the interview process and who did not, so I know how to help your resume stand out from the rest. My expertise is working with students in the STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) who are seeking admission to medical school or looking to begin a career in Tech.

College Counseling

I have nearly 10 years of experience as an admissions counselor who has read thousands of applications and advised students for three different universities: Claremont McKenna College (a highly selective liberal arts college); University of Washington (a tier I public research university); and Western University of Health Sciences (a graduate health professions school with dental, nursing, physician assistant programs). I know what colleges are looking for in a great essay and can help you put your best foot forward in the application process!

Proofreading

I'm an excellent writer and proofreader who attended one of the nation's most selective liberal arts colleges, Claremont McKenna. My background in college admissions and recruiting has furthered strengthened my writing and editing skills. I am excited to help you with your resume, personal statement, LinkedIn profile, essays or other college or job application materials.
