I graduated in 2005 from the University of Chicago with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History. After college, I worked as a New York City public high school history teacher. Also, I completed a Masters in Education at Pace University. In 2008, I left teaching to work at a nonprofit helping low-income youth get into college.
In 2012, I sought a new avenue to pursue my passion for college admissions further. So I founded Stand Out College Prep. I wanted to make sure that other students had the guidance for college admissions that I did not have when I was in high school. As a first-generation college student, I was alone in writing my essay and resume and gathering other materials by deadlines. Luckily, I was a good writer (I won several essay contests throughout high school). Moreover, I spent many Saturdays at the library, reading every admissions guidebook that I could find to help me craft my best application.
As one of the best college consultants on Long Island, I have helped students and families accomplish these goals:
Every day, I work towards these goals for my clients.
I have been a featured expert in HuffPost, USA Today, Inside HigherEd, Discover, Staples, Care.com, Smithtown Chamber of Commerce, and Launch Grow Joy. In 2020, I was voted as a Best of Long Island business by Bethpage Federal Credit Union. Also, I am a regular facilitator for the Science & Technology Entry Program (STEP) at Queensborough Community College.
As an active member of NACAC (National Association for College Admission Counseling) and NYSACAC (New York State Association for College Admission Counseling), I maintain the highest principles of practice established by the professional organizations.
Don't keep putting off the essay. You can buy the workbook right now for less than a latte. It comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
When I applied to the University of Chicago, I was alone in writing my college essay. I know what it feels like to be unsure if what you're writing in your personal statement will be effective and move college admissions officers. Also, I know that it's hard to buy something online, especially from someone I've never met!
So, I want to put your mind at ease.
I want you to feel confident investing in the College Essay Writer's Lab Workbook, so I am giving you 30 days to learn and implement everything within the workbook, and feel at ease knowing that if you are not 100% satisfied, I will happily buy the workbook back from you. While I can't guarantee college admissions, I am super confident that this workbook gives you everything you need to write an effective and winning college essay to support your applications.
For the typical high school senior, it takes approximately 4 weeks to write a final version of the college essay. This is largely dependent on how confident of a writer you are and how much time you commit to getting it done.
Yes! There is a 30-day refund policy if you are not satisfied. To get your funds returned, you'll need to show that you dedicated 4-weeks to writing the essay, for at least 45 minutes three days a week, and followed the steps in the workbook.

This workbook does not guarantee college admission. College admissions is a holistic review process that includes many factors. However, a strong essay will support your teen's overall application and can improve admissions chances.
