Client review: True Wordsmith, Beyond Expectations!
I am so glad that I worked with Nina to edit my essays. She is a master storyteller, and I was amazed by the quality of the essays she turned around in such a short time. Moreover, she always went above and beyond. Working with Nina was more like working with a trustable friend. She not only edits your essay and brings it to another level but also provides thoughtful comments and explanations on her changes to help you understand the rationale. I was also very grateful for her responsiveness during the holiday season and flexibility with the turnaround dates to meet my deadline. I truly appreciate Nina's help and her encouraging words in her replies. I would absolutely recommend Nina to any applicants seeking top-notch revision for their essays. Nina is the BEST!” – Zhiyuan

Client review: “Sam helped me with the essay of my favorite program. He helped me make it more structured and interesting to read. So, I came back to him for another essay. Although the questions were similar, Sam read my essay carefully, found the difference in my response, and helped me revise the essay accordingly. I really appreciate him for being both professional and responsible. My last essay was so tricky that it required me to show my personality and tell my stories in short sentences, meanwhile, to make them interesting. My version included too many details, even wordy. But Sam helped me make it super concise, and more importantly, vivid!!! His editing is straight-forward, and he also included comment and remark in his edited version which was super thoughtful. He never changed my story, so I am comfortable the story is still what I want to tell the AO and about the real me! Besides, he is very responsive and flexible. He worked on my essay during the New Year holiday. I could not be more appreciative for his help. In short, I highly recommend Sam to other applicants.” - Tina
