My name is Grace, and I am passionate about education and writing. I have been trained professionally as a writing mentor at UC San Diego, where I have mentored university students with a focus on college essay writing and analytical reading skills. I also have over 150 hours of volunteer experience in high school classrooms, where I have tutored students, assisted teachers, and led lessons. My specialty is college admissions essays. My goal is to help amplify your voice as a writer so that you can best articulate your unique thoughts.
I truly love to get to know each student I work with and to develop an appreciation for their unique intelligence and passions. Every student has a unique learning style and I love to draw from students' strengths to conquer a goal or task that may have seemed difficult at first. My favorite part about being a tutor is being able to help someone realize how capable they really are.
She made it very easy to understand reading and writing comprehension with clear details and well explanation of the subject.
Grace was very thorough and patient when reviewing my Common App personal statement with me. I found her very flexible and helpful overall and would definitely recommend!
After several years in the workforce, I decided to apply to graduate school. Grace helped me overcome the challenges I faced while writing my personal statements and the other written components of my applications. I highly recommend Grace for anyone who suffers from writing anxiety, writer's block, perfectionism, or other obstacles. With Grace's help, I was accepted into my dream school, UCLA!
I simply want to help you meet your goals in a way that is engaging to you and plays to your strengths. I have a very friendly and conversational tutoring style, but I'm also results-oriented. I will make sure that by the end of our session, you are closer to achieving your goals. I like to provide tools that you can take with you and advice that is easy to follow.
