About me:

I’ve been in the shoes of high school students in our competitive world today. Luckily, I had a mentor who coached me throughout the college admissions process, helping me get into several top tier schools Ivies. She completely changed my future; Penn opened so many doors of opportunities for me, leading me to work at Google after college. I want to be that pivotal mentor for your student & help them realize their full potential.

Over the past 8 years, my students have been accepted to every UC, every Ivy League, Stanford, MIT, Duke, Williams College (and more!). I offer unlimited essay reviews once we work together. Email me: Nae [at] Website:
