University Application Essays: Planning, Writing, & Editing Coach

Are you applying to an English-speaking university, and looking to put your best foot forward? Do you want your personality and accomplishments to shine through in your essays? If so, then I'd be happy to help you craft your written statements for your university applications.

My name is Nissim, and I'm passionate about writing and education. I've been tutoring in English and writing for years and have long been my friends' first choice for helping them write and edit papers, personal statements, and application essays. In my own life, my university application essays earned me a full scholarship to attend Vanderbilt University, and as a result, I understand not only the skills required to craft a top-notch college essay, but also the payoff that comes with doing it well.

As a coach, my emphasis is on collaboration. We'll work together to figure out what you want to accomplish, and how to best make it a reality. Whether you're just looking to tighten up your prose, or you want help planning your essays from scratch, I'm confident that together we'll make it happen!

Jaye
English literature- private lessons in analysis, essay writing and exam prep
My basic premise is that anything you can say, you should be able to write. My strengths are in thematic reading of the text, literary techniques and essay writing. I usually work with the student to help them build a strong understanding of the text, and its wider historical and social content, before helping them to understand its themes and key ideas. From there I work with my students to strengthen their writing (factual or creative) and building of their own ideas on paper. I use a variety of exercises and mediums (film, poetry, novels, rap etc) to achieve this. As literature is an ever-evolving field, I feel learning is very much a two-way process, and try to use dialogue, discussion and contextual materials and examples to build the student's understanding. I really enjoy this field and try to bring my enthusiasm, knowledge and experience to every class I teach.
