My process

I like to create a comprehensive and clear voice for my students, clearly representing the student in often limited word spaces. By doing this I get the student to imagine a series of words that describe the image that they are trying to portray in their college essays and build around that. This highly effective method, confirmed by admissions officers, has won many fellowships and admission into top universities in the U.S and U.K.
