To put it frankly, Chelsea is the G.O.A.T. of narrative writing and editing. I have had the pleasure of working with Chelsea for the last calendar year. During this time, Chelsea has helped me craft a successful Fulbright application and has worked with me in the capacities of a medical school advisor and editor, guiding me through the medical school application process. I will be frank in my testimonial. If you are looking for someone to edit a piece of work from a distance and simply offer surface-level feedback, I suggest you look elsewhere. However, if you are looking for someone who will commit themselves to making sure their client has the editorial resources needed to succeed, then Chelsea is the perfect tutor. Chelsea’s style of working with her students is blunt. At its core, this is what makes working with her so special. Chelsea is diligent in her work and provides candid feedback for her clients, both writing-wise and, in my experience, selecting medical schools to apply to. What separates good tutors from great ones is the ability to have the difficult discussions: telling a student they need to return to the drawing board after a lackluster draft or being honest about a student’s likelihood of getting into a certain medical school. Chelsea delicately handles these conversations and leaves her students feeling inspired. Her honesty is what helps her students succeed. Through her editing and advising, Chelsea has helped sharpen my applications to a point that I did not know was previously possible. More so than her poignant edits, Chelsea takes the time to get to know her students in an effort to push them to be the best writers and applicants they can be. She is timely in her communication and returns drafts in Olympic record-breaking time. As I write this testimonial, I am working as a Fulbrighter abroad and am preparing for my first medical school interview at an M.D. program with the second most applications in the country. If it was not for my time with Chelsea, I guarantee that I would not be writing this testimonial situated in such a position to succeed. In short, my time with Chelsea has been nothing but positive.

I really enjoyed working with Chelsea. She was very fast at editing my work and responding to emails. It was clear to me that she truly wanted to help me get into medical school and convey my story in a compelling way! (MD Applicant)
