“Emma helped me revise my personal statement so the writing flowed naturally, while still preserving my voice and my story.”
Michaela, MD/PhD Applicant
“Emma is an extremely effective teacher who can also be your best buddy. I worked with Emma during my MBA application process. It was a gigantic task that involved writing nineteen essays for eight schools. Emma's dedication to teaching far exceeded my expectations: she was available to meet multiple times a week (which I really needed), and taught me how to write in a tone that struck the perfect balance between personable and professional. She worked with me through every step of the writing process, from brainstorming to fine-tuning the twentieth draft of an essay that had to be impeccable. Even looking back four months later, I am proud of those essays. I can safely say that I was able to do my absolute best and have Emma to thank for it. I'm very happy with the schools I was accepted into. I wholeheartedly recommend Emma as a writing coach to anyone fortunate enough to work with her.”

I was amazed at how quickly we were able to transform my drafts into products that I was proud of submitting. Emma didn't hesitate to challenge me when she thought I was heading in the wrong direction, but she made sure to let my ideas carry the essays. I'm very happy with the process and firmly believe my end products were stronger as a result. I've since been admitted to Columbia Business School and received interviews at four of the other five schools.”
