The college application process can be immensely daunting, for stud...
Jonathan did an amazing job helping me through the entire college application process and ultimately helping me gain admission into my dream school. His essay construction process is amazing and makes sure that the student is putting their best foot forward on all essays. Even with short word requirement essays, he was able to help me put a grand amount of information within them. I am extremely thankful for his guidance through this process!

Jonathan is an incredible teacher and communicates with his students extremely well. He has helped my sons improve their essay writing and creative writing. Their writing has improved tremendously after they started working with Jon and we feel very lucky to have found him. They really enjoy working with him and look forward to his classes. Jon is also a great communicator and connected with my sons from the very beginning. He always goes above and beyond to make sure that they get all of the concepts and teaches them how to convey their thoughts through words. He has a very good eye for detail and is extremely knowledgeable about the intricacies of the English language. Jon has motivated them to take their writing to the next level. Last year, he mentored them in the Scholastic Writing Competition and helped them win awards including a national gold and silver medal. Additionally, Jon is extremely accommodating. I would definitely recommend Jon for all of your writing needs.

Jonathan K is the man to help write your essay. He is wonderful to work with and has a penchant for finding problems within an essay, and finding solutions to those problems. His vast knowledge in the application process will make you have the best possible chance to get admitted to the top universities in America. Because of him, I was accepted to one of the top Ivy League Schools. Two thumbs up for Jonathan! - Ron

Jonathan is a unicorn of a tutor. Well-versed in calmly and patiently helping his students navigate the nuances of application essays, Jonathan masterfully provides his students with support and dedication. During my time working with him for several weeks on transfer applications, Johnathan set me up with a general scaffolding for my essays before moving forwards and guiding me through different angles on my essays. Through thoughtful and productive conversations, Jonathan helped me to dig-deeper and further explore my ideas before proceeding to edit my work with precision. The result was concise essays where my authentic voice was clearly heard. Jonathan makes it a point to help his students feel confidently proud of their work. It is with compassion and a genuine desire to understand his students that Jonathan not only teaches with a ?good? eye? but the ?curious eye? as well. Jonathan is a tutor I simply cannot recommend with enough enthusiasm. For anyone looking for a writing tutor who will provide unparalleled excellence and is exceptionally commitment to your success, you?ve found the right man for the job.

Although Jonathan is primarily someone who can provide excellent help with the all important college essay, he has also helped us out enormously with advice about good colleges for our son; helped our son out navigating Naviance and the Common App; suggested how to gather information about various colleges; and in general gone above and beyond in knowledgeably helping us get through the college application process, all while giving us prompt and useful updates on each session he has had with our son and doing his best to cheerfully work around schedule conflicts when they arise.

I had 7 lessons with Jonathan, who helped me greatly with my personal statement for college.

Jonathan did an amazing job helping me cut my essay while keeping it true to myself, my story, and academic. He is VERY knowledgeable about applying to schools and has a lot of guidance/advice. Without Jonathan, I do not know how I would of written my essay in so few words while conveying so much information. I am so thankful for his expertise and guidance!
- Sarah G. from North Hollywood, CA
Dedicated, detail oriented, & accommodating! I am technically a mature student from the U.S who decided to go back to school and Jonathan worked with me on my personal essay, cv, as well as the application process over the course of a few months. He helped me navigate the application process for a university in South Africa which I am happy to say I now attend! He was meticulous in the work we did together and always made me feel heard and understood when it came to how I wanted to be perceived as an academic. When it finally came down to handing in all my materials I felt very confident in that they were the best possible quality thanks to Jonathan?s assistance. I would highly recommend him as a tutor for a student of any age.

Jonathan helps with all facets of essay writing. He can assist in brainstorming ideas, organizing and outlining as well as editing paragraphs and sentence structure. I feel that my 10th grader has really learned how to write well thanks to Jonathan.
- Lenore A. from New York, NY
Jonathon does a great job of extracting your stories to best address the prompts on essays. He also did a phenomenal job of providing valuable feed back and making the language of my essays very coherent and readable. These are honestly some of the best essays I have written, very concise yet powerful essays that pack a lot of information into a strict word count. Jonathan was a great teacher and taught me some life long lessons in essay writing. I?m a better writer now because of him.
- Akash P. from Natchitoches, LA
Jonathan is one of the most well rounded tutors I know. I asked Jon to help me write transfer essays to schools such as Penn and Villanova and they were more than fantastic. He exceeded my expectations greatly and I am so appreciative for all the work he helped me accomplish. I have a very busy schedule and Jonathan was always willing to work with me timing wise which I can not thank him enough for. If you need a tutor to help you with college decisions or applications, THIS is the man you are looking for! I felt very confident handing in my final essays and transfer applications, all thanks to Jonathan!
- Caitlyn C. from Glen Mills, PA
We worked on my graduate school application essays. Not only was he very aware of the kinds of responses different prompts were looking at, he also has effective ways of helping me to find my unique perspective and voice for each essay. He was great with turnaround as the deadline approached. He was professional and accommodating at the same time. I had to reschedule a session once, and he was very understanding.
