Nicole approaches essay writing with the most important element of all: a strategy. She brings a clarifying focus to the process of identifying a topic and editing for economy. She knows what individual colleges look for, an important consideration in deciding which tone to take. On top of all that, she is responsible, prompt, and very easy to work with. I highly recommend her!

As the parent of a teenage son who was not relishing the idea of writing multiple essays for college applications, I can honestly say Nicole made it an incredibly positive experience for him. He always looked forward to their meetings and felt great about his essays, which truly capture the essence of who he is. I would highly recommend Nicole. She truly understands the process. We couldn't have managed without her!

Nicole helped me throughout the entire college application process and was always there when I had a question. I was overwhelmed when it came to writing the essays, and there were a lot of them for my early decision school. But Nicole inspired me to have faith in my creativity and encouraged me to find my own voice. By the end, my essays were focused but still had the originality and uniqueness that Tisch values.

After watching my son go in circles trying to write his college essay, I began to think my son needed some objective outside assistance. My son had good ideas and natural writing ability but we felt that he needed guidance and experience to transpose these ideas into a strong essay. We also wanted some assistance in completing the application itself. Nicole was the perfect answer.
Having graduated recently herself, she is experienced at navigating the process of applying for college. We loved that she helped my son figure out for himself what he wanted to express. We also admired her gift in working with teenagers. She is extremely competent, reliable and efficient. She was exactly the bridge we needed between my son's talents and the rigorous demands of the college admissions process. We are so grateful for her help and are looking forward to him attending his first choice college this fall.

Nicole was instrumental in helping our son write his college essay. She grasped the unique experiences he had very quickly and was able to help him flesh out his ideas. With her assistance, our son wrote an essay in a cohesive, well-crafted and organized manner, after meeting with Nicole only a few times. At the end of the writing and editing process, he had a college-admissions-ready essay that he submitted to the schools he had chosen. If Nicole hadn't helped him, I have no doubt that he wouldn't have gotten into the college of his choice, early decision. We have recommended Nicole to other people and they have also been very happy with not only her work, but also her work ethic.

Hi Nicole, I don't think we really have to worry about any more essays. I want to thank you for all you have done for me and just let you know that without you I honestly don't know what I would have done. I got into U Denver and UVM, which I am absolutely thrilled about. Again, I am so grateful for all that you have done for me, it's honestly incredible. I am very very excited.
Again thank you so much!

When applying to college, I was struggling with writing my admissions essays. Not only did Nicole help me with every step of the writing process, she gave me the amazing idea of writing the papers on a topic I was passionate about. Her assistance was the reason I had such a strong admissions essay. Indeed, I would highly recommend Nicole and her services.

I worked with Nicole the summer before I was to begin applying for college. Before each time we met, Nicole had me put together a full revised draft of each essay we had worked on in the previous session. She walked me through each essay, asking me to make connections between the person experience I was describing to the one I would have as a student at the college/university to which I was applying. Though I worked with other professionals during the college application process, I found Nicole to be the most patient and easiest to work with.
