“Ellen has been an amazing coach and mentor throughout the MD application process. She is smart, kind, and easy to talk to. She made me feel very comfortable sharing my story, and helped me craft essays that I feel truly represent me and my desire to pursue medicine. I am a first-generation college student, and I was grateful Ellen shared so much with me about applying to medical school and what to expect later on. I could not have done this without her help. She is a wonderful person and coach. She identifies her students' needs and challenges her students to imrpove. I would recommend her services to anyone who is applying to medical school.”

“Ellen has been my rock through the medical school application process. She is the most focused and compassionate coach I have ever worked with. She knows how to identify and address your needs, and work with you to find your voice. In a process that is complciated and often discouraging, Ellen streamlines the experience and makes it not only doable, but fun. She is particularly good at strategy. I wish I'd met her sooner. Her services are worth every penny. If you're thinking about working with a consultant for medical school, she is an extraordinary person to work with.”

Rebecca, MCAT Student
“Ellen was instrumental in my receiving several interviews and acceptances to medical school. Through her coaching, she taught me skills that took my personal statement and secondary applications from quite boring pieces of writing to essays that I am genuinely proud of. She also conducted and reviewed mock interviews with me so when the real interviews came, I felt more than prepared. She was very flexible and super responsive. Her compassion, kindness, and expertise made this stressful, discouraging process much easier. I cannot recommend Ellen enough!”

Sarah, MD Applicant
“Ellen provided really helpful explanations of the concepts and created a plan so I was able to review all the material and take practice tests. We always stayed really focused and got tons of information covered, so I left each session feeling so much better prepared. I was nervous about getting a tutor, and Ellen made it so easy! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone else. I walked into the MCAT feeling more confident than I ever could have imagined.”
