Along the way, we hope to relieve the anxiety, stress and even helplessness that parents and their children often feel when facing their education. While we believe school should be a challenge that stretches students to become what they’re capable of becoming, we also believe it shouldn’t be painful

Admissions Essays that Win!
With decades of writing experience, we are confident in helping your child get into the university of their choice.

We understand what college admission committees look for in quality essays, what areas we need to focus on, and how creative we can get with each essay.

Based on your child’s academic history, strengths and personal background, we will write in a collaborative fashion, where your child is also involved in the process from start to finish. This way, they won’t just benefit from the end result, but rather learn the skill set necessary for writing future essays.
