“Working with you has helped me to pinpoint the message I want to send to colleges. You’ve also helped me refine my writing style so that I convey ideas strongly and clearly. Your feedback was always thoughtful, detailed and very helpful. Thank you so much for everything!"
-Maya, Sequoia High School & UCLA
You brought calmness to our household in a time of high school senior craziness! We all trusted your judgement on the essay drafts and by setting up deadlines for the drafts and final edits, it really took the pressure off of all of us. Not having to nag on our end made the college essay process so much easier and, dare I say, pleasant? I would HIGHLY recommend you to others that are looking for help with their college application essays. -Trish, Woodside High School parent, class of 2020
Thank you so much for the feedback and edits! Your advice is super clear and very helpful."
Heather helped my son find topics that were meaningful to him and as a result his voice and personality really came through. Two private colleges have already made early admissions offers, both with generous merit scholarships. Heather is a pleasure to work with—positive, responsive, and flexible. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Beyond timely feedback and incredible professionalism, Heather’s tolerant and nonjudgemental character makes it easy to perfect essays that should be, by nature, very personal. Thanks Heather! -Alex, Woodside High School & UCLA
Heather was approachable and easy to talk to. I found her edits to be insightful, and I really appreciated how she helped me organize and focus my essays.
My son truly thoroughly enjoyed working with you and felt that your input was invaluable!
We could not have been happier with Heather's services. Her edits and suggestions were always thoughtful and on point while respecting my son's unique point of view and voice. Highly recommended!
Again, we want to thank you for your work with our daughter on the essay portions of her applications. I think the very positive response she got from her list of colleges reflects that her essays conveyed clearly who she is and what she can contribute to their college community.
It's really important to be comfortable with the person that you're working with because all the information is personal. After I met Heather and shared parts of my personality, we maintained a friendly and trusting relationship to make the process effective. Her second perspective is very valuable since it's similar to an admissions officer, except you use the feedback before applying.
Heather radiated kindness and calm as she helped my daughter and her friends begin the process of thinking about college essays. She really knows how to connect with high schoolers and her advice and tips were very helpful.
