Introduction: Hi there, I'm The Ivy Coach!
Over the past 8 years, I have worked with over a hundred students on their admissions strategy and applications. My clients have gotten into the top schools in the country including Harvard, Columbia, UPenn, Cornell, Georgetown, Johns Hopkins, UChicago, NYU, UC Berkeley, and University of Southern California.
Specializing in admissions to highly selective schools, I am well-versed in what elite universities hope to see in an applicant—leadership, passion, curiosity, work ethic, and grit, amongst other things. These qualities (and more) can be demonstrated using the various pieces of the admissions puzzle. I assist you in navigating each of these pieces, including course selection, extracurriculars, personal brand, college selection, testing strategy, essay topics/writing and interviews. So no matter what stage of high school you're in, I can take help you plan the next steps.
Once, I was exactly where you are right now, frazzled by the increasingly complex college admissions maze and the blinking cursor on a blank word document. After I figured this process out for myself, I went on to major in Political Science and History at UPenn, where I was also a Benjamin Franklin Scholar, made Dean's List and graduated with Honors. I, then, went on to study investigative journalism at Columbia Journalism School and write stories for major national outlets. Writing has been my passion since I was a child, and it's something I'll be doing for the rest of my life.
I love words and totally nerd out on how to put them together. And I am super stoked to partner with you on your goals, whatever they may be. Let's make a game plan!
