    (Online/Remote) US/UK Undergraduate & Graduate Application: Drafting, Editing & Refining Essays (PS a/o supplementary)

    I offer remote service of drafting, editing and/or refining your college application essays, including your personal statement(s) and supplementary essays (through email). If you prefer, I also offer one-on-one Skype/Zoom where I will walk you through my comments and address any of your concerns regarding the essays and the application process in general.

    I am currently a rising senior of Columbia University, and I have just completed a year in Wadham College, University of Oxford. I completed the International Baccalaureate Programme with a GPA of 6.97/7. Throughout the last three years I have been editing and commenting on people's essays, and with my help they were accepted by Barnard College, NYU, UCL (Master's), LSE and alike.

    My rates are different depending on the service. For a remote editing/commenting service,. If you would like to send me back the essay(s) for a second check, I will charge a lot less if there are only a few spots to fix. A Skype/Zoom session will be one-hour long in addition to the editing/commenting service, but you will learn how to draft an impressive essay a lot faster.

    If you would like to see a writing sample, please contact me. If you have a significant number of essays to edit, or if you would like me to walk you through mock interviews and any other part of the college application process, I can become your personal advisor.

    Extra information

    You have to have access to the internet so that we can exchange files and possibly use Skype/Zoom's service.

    I specialise in Proof-reading and editing essays of any sort of subject and can do this in approx. 3 hours depending on the length of the document. I prefer to utilise google documents as the individual can track the suggested editing and choose to accept/reject changes made. However, other forms of receiving feedback can be discussed. I can provide feedback post-reviewing an essay (if necessary) via skype as well as prior to editing should the person want to discuss how much editing/preferred form of editing needs to be described.

If you are interested, I would like to receive a message telling you what kind of text (s) it concerns, how many words it is and whether or not you are also interested in a conversation.
