Hi there, I'm Vanessa! I'm a Harvard graduate and an experienced, friendly, patient, and highly-qualified coach and tutor with over 5 years of experience working for professional tutoring companies and as a private tutor. I have a proven track record, helping my students get into prestigious universities and business schools (Harvard, Chicago Booth, etc.), receive job offers from top-tier companies (Bain, BCG, P&G, etc.), and raise their SAT scores by 300+ points. In addition, I have worked closely with many ESL (English second language) students. I am available to tutor via Skype.

COLLEGE ADMISSIONS COACHING / ESSAY EDITING
I have a deep understanding of what competitive universities look for in applicants and can help you ensure that your application and essay are as strong as they can possibly be. Through my own application experiences and through coaching others, I am equipped to help with any stage of the application process: holistic application strategy, essay brainstorming and outlining, essay revisions, application review, etc.
I have coached over 30 students to improve their applications and essays for undergraduate and graduate programs, including MBA and JD programs, and scholarship applications. I care deeply about all the applicants I work with and am very thoughtful in helping them put their best foot forward, while ensuring that their unique story and voice shines through.
INTERVIEW / RESUME COACHING (including consulting case interviews)
I am a highly effective interview and resume coach, having led workshops for audiences of over 100 and provided one-on-one coaching for over 50 individuals. I can help you master many kinds of interviews - from standard job interviews to university admissions interviews to consulting case interviews.
We can run mock interviews, and after, I will give you thorough feedback and share interview strategies and tips that are tailored to your personal strengths / development areas. Interviews can be nerve-wracking because you have just one shot and a short amount of time to make a great impression - I can help you practice and perfect your own personal interview approach and hone in on the critical point to convey.
