“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.”

She helped me articulate my ideas and further develop them into meaningful and effective stories for an admissions committee. With her help, I flew through the secondary applications, and was able to submit everything in a timely manner.

Her work is flawless and thorough and any student would be lucky to have her on their side.”
Wendi, Parent of Expository Writing Student
“Working with Emma not only strengthened my MBA application essays, but also improved my overall writing. 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.”
