Student Testimonials

I began working with Alex during my sophomore year, so I was able to implement many of his ideas, such as hands-on research papers and a science blog, that really helped me present myself as a knowledgeable and self-driven scientist in my applications! Even though he had many good suggestions and obviously knew what could create a brilliant application, he never tried to stifle my unique interests and helped me incorporate them in my essays. When it came to editing, he always made sure that the essays still used my voice and that they were truly representative of me. I wouldn’t have known how to present myself in the best possible way to elite institutions without Alex’s help.

Without Alex, I wouldn’t have been able to get into my dream school. I started working with Alex in eighth grade, and he helped me to have specific goals and plans for my high school tenure. With the specific goals and plans, my application had a harmonic element that made me different from other applicants. In order for me to stand out, Alex and I worked on the junction for all my high school achievements and life experiences: the common app and supplemental essays. Since the beginning of summer before my senior year, Alex and I wrote at least 50 drafts in total for ten different schools. Alex suggested specific edits from my initial drafts that would make my essays to connect with my passion for STEM. With hard work from both Alex and me, we ended up with final drafts that radiated my background and passion for colleges. I strongly believe that the essays were a big part of my success, and I thank Alex for his help.

“Alex was really helpful in terms of brainstorming ideas for my essay topics. We would sit in a room and talk for 30 minutes straight, listing out all the possible ideas that could be used. He was completely open to any idea, which made me feel comfortable enough to share everything on my mind. Also, Alex's honest opinions regarding my writing were very helpful. He directly told me what he didn't like during the earlier phases of writing so that the essay wouldn’t turn into a train wreck. He also gave a lot of care for the grammatical structure of my writing so that we could submit the most cohesive essay possible.”

"Alex helped me tremendously during the college app process by being involved in each step leading to completion. Based off of my academic interests and extracurricular activities, he gave me a theme of “social entrepreneurship” for my college application. Setting a clear theme was important in writing the Common App essay and portraying what I wanted to pursue after high school. In terms of the essay, he helped me out starting from the idea generation process to writing drafts to making revisions for each draft. He was extremely meticulous in pointing out what I should work on and continuously gave me suggestions to improve the essay. I remember that I wrote A LOT of drafts for my final essay until we were both satisfied. Outside of essays, he helped me decide on what courses to take and proposed new extracurricular activities that would strengthen my application. In retrospect, Alex was not only a consultant but also a mentor that supported me throughout the whole college application process that can be stressful and pressuring. He communicates well with his students and is always willing to help - he even (recently) helped me revise my application for a dual degree with Wharton at Penn."

“Alex gave constructive feedback on how to improve my essays in light of the theme that I was writing for. My sentences tend to be verbose and Alex also helped me cut a lot of unnecessary sentences and keep the essay very compact and right to the point. We held weekly Skype meetings to discuss more about my essays' revision and further steps; he provided great help in my college application.”
