Applying to college or graduate school can be overwhelming for all involved. Often, students are anxious about standing out from the competition, doubting they have what it takes to get admissions officers’ attention, and struggling to present a story that truly represents their unique self.

Robert eradicates that stress by providing a systematic approach to the essay process.

By creating a safe, judgment-free zone, Robert encourages applicants to express themselves in compelling, thought-provoking, well-written essays. Engaging on a personal level, he helps discover their most intriguing script.  He then creates an environment where students feel comfortable to be honest and real, thereby enabling them to articulate their true, original self. Students emerge from the process more confident – not only in their writing skills, but as a student and a person.

Applicants are kept to a schedule and provided clear and achievable goals – reducing their anxiety and uncertainty, enabling them to thrive in a supportive environment. Through regular phone meetings, with constructive feedback, together they transform the essay-writing process into concise and manageable tasks, setting clear deadlines for monitoring progress. Robert’s fun, breezy demeanor helps applicants produce memorable essays that leave an indelible impression. Parents can breathe a sigh of relief because they are strategically separate from the process – and the essays are under control.

The college admissions process is more competitive than ever, with acceptance rates in the single digits. Robert has helped more than 400 students get accepted to their top choice schools – from Yale to Stanford, and everywhere in between. His focus, expertise, and enthusiasm gives students the highest chances of achieving their goals, turning their university dreams into a reality.

Dig deep. Be original.
