Having provided professional, 1:1 tutoring and college guidance counseling to students for the past five years, Shvetali recognizes the importance of building a relationship with her students and works to establish trust early on. With college admissions becoming increasingly more competitive, the narrative that students tell admissions counselors have become exponentially more important, and she is committed to helping students tell their stories as holistically and uniquely as possible. Cognizant of the importance of individuality in the college admissions process, Shvetali works with students to help them find their “why.” As an essay editor, Shvetali excels in her ability to strategically navigate the complete essay-writing process, from brainstorming and choosing a captivating topic to weaving a theme throughout the story, adding sensational imagery to capture the attention of the reader, and proofreading for final edits.
