Crafting the Perfect Personal Statement for Colleges and Universities
Hey, it's Razi. I recently graduated cum laude from Harvard University with a B.A in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations. Ever since giving my first chess lesson when I was 11 years old (certainly the most exciting $2 I have ever made in my life) I have continued tutoring in almost every imaginable capacity, from ACT, to college essays, from middle school English to high school math, from the suburbs to the inner-city, from lifelong Americans to recent refugees.
Of all the types of tutoring I enjoy, I particularly love helping High Schoolers with their college applications. The entire process can often seem quite daunting, and especially, the essay, where one is required to condense the most important part of him or herself into a few hundred words. When I was published in the most recent edition of "50 Successful Harvard Application Essays" I realized how influential my essay must have been on my admission and hope to share what helped me create a powerful essay with anyone I can teach. My students have been accepted to dozens of schools and many scholarships, including: Harvard, Yale, Cal Tech, Stanford, Cornell, Brown, Columbia, Penn, Dean’s Scholarship at Northeastern, Northwestern, Carnegie Mellon, Wellesley, the UC’s, UVA, the UT’s, UNC, and more.
