I have ten years of experience teaching academic and professional writing at UCLA, with a special certification in teaching writing techniques. I have drawn on this expertise to guide clients to placements at top institutions, including Harvard, Stanford, and USC. Before joining Accepted, I coached UCLA students through the application process for graduate programs, major grants, fellowships, and scholarships, including the Fulbright, Stanford Knight-Hennessey, and the Ford Foundation Fellowship. I have extensive experience successfully guiding clients through applications for a diverse range of programs, including those in business, humanities, social sciences, and STEM fields.
My successful approach to crafting applications is based on two key ideas:
Writing is all about pulling ideas from your brain and putting it on the page. The editing process is where the magic happens; editing is where those ideas are shaped so they can be communicated and understood by the outside world. I love working with clients to craft and shape a compelling application. My favorite moments are when clients discover something about themselves in the process and, of course, when they get accepted!
