Student Testimonials

I worked with Esther as I began to prepare to write my college essays. Esther helped me sort through all of my ideas, and she helped me narrow down my list of potential topics.  Then she helped me develop my topics into thoughtful essays. Esther constantly checked in with me to see how I was progressing and offered help whenever I felt stuck. Additionally, it was very helpful to have her feedback on each draft I wrote. Working with Esther was great and everyone should do it!

It was a pleasure to work with Esther. She was really able to help me with my ideas. It was great to have her look through my essay and be able to help me with my writing. Having her be able to read different drafts was very effective for the final product. She helped turn all of my ideas into a flowing and understandable essay that I was proud of. Because of her help, I was able to get into 8 out of 9 colleges I applied to. As I move onto Bryant University, I will always remember the feedback Esther gave me for my writing. She is a phenomenal writer and can help anyone write something that comes from within. I can not thank her enough for her help!

Esther helped me through the essay process by always keeping me motivated. Despite my procrastination, she always kept me focused on my main goal. I could not have gotten into all of the colleges I applied to without her!

Thank you so much for all your help in getting me here today! Being in college is an amazing experience. I got into many great schools, including UVA, Duke, and Brown, and was even awarded a prestigious DuPont Scholarship here at UD! I could not have done any of this without all of your help.

It was a pleasure to work with Esther, it really helped me to be able to talk to someone else about ideas and have another pair of eyes to look through my essay and be able to help me with my writing. I also think she was really effective in helping me to see relevant connections to the things I had gone through to who I was as a person.

Working with you made everything so much easier. The process was less intimidating and gave me the head start/nudge I needed. I loved working with you.

Working on my essay with Esther was an amazing experience! She made it really easy to understand what parts were good and what parts would benefit from a little work. She showed me how I could strengthen parts of my essay and tone down the less important bits. After working with her over the summer I brought my essay to a couple of teachers to edit, and they were “completely amazed.” Thanks so much for all you did, Esther.

I began working on my college essays with Esther in the spring of my junior year of high school. I had an idea of what I wanted to write about, but I wasn’t exactly sure how to organize my thoughts into a concise and powerful essay. That’s where Esther came in. She helped me to structure my writing and execute my thoughts in a way that made my story stand out from the rest. The following winter, I got into my top choice of schools. Looking back, I can say with full confidence that Esther played a major role in my acceptance.
